ORLANDO, Fla. — Universal's Halloween Horror Nights will be a little stranger this year. The hit Netflix show "Stranger Things" will return to the after-hours scare fest for an all-new haunted house, Universal Orlando announced Thursday. 

What You Need To Know

  • "Stranger Things" haunted houses announced for Universal's Halloween Horror Nights

  • The house will be based on season four of the show and includes scenes from Hawkins Lab, the Creel House and Vecna's mind lair

  • Visitors can also expect to encounter characters like Max and Eddie

  • In addition to "Stranger Things", the HHN lineup includes houses based on "The Last of Us" and "Chucky"

The house—set in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana—will be inspired by season four of the show, bringing to life the Upside Down and putting visitors face-to-face with the menacing Vecna.

Visitors will encounter characters such as Eleven, Max and Eddie as well as the creatures like the demobats. Universal says the house will include scenes from Hawkins Lab, the Creel House and Vecna's mind lair.

"We're excited for our fans to live Vecna's curse as we recreate the iconic and terrifying moments from the show," said Lora Sauls, assistant director creative development and show direction at Universal Orlando. 

A "Stranger Things" house will also be created for HHN at Universal Studios Hollywood in California. 

This marks the third time a "Stranger Things" house has been featured at Universal Studios Florida's HHN event. The 1980s-set series was part of the lineup in 2018 and then again in 2019.

"Stranger Things" is the third house announced for this year's event. Last month, Universal revealed that the event would have a house based on "The Last of Us" video game. The lineup, so far, also includes a "Chucky" house, which was announced last fall. 

HHN will include 10 haunted houses, five scare zones and two live shows. Universal has not yet shared details about this year's scare zones or shows. 

Four more nights have been added to the separate-ticket event, which will now run 48 select nights from Sept. 1 through Nov. 4. Previously, the event was set to wrap Oct. 31. 

Universal is also now selling multi-night tickets, including the Frequent Fear and Rush of Fear passes. Single-night tickets and add-ons like Express Pass and the R.I.P Tour are available.
