By Malia Wooten

Universal Studio’s annual Halloween Horror Nights is prepared to bring your nightmares to life on Friday, September 14th! 👻

Get ready to face your fears at one of the scariest events in SoCal this season. Hosted by the production studio responsible for some of the scariest horror films to date, Halloween Horror Nights is back with all-new immersive worlds of icons from the most twisted imaginations in cinema.

On select nights through November 3, the theme park welcomes you and your crew to explore spine-chilling mazes and attractions… that is, if you’re brave enough.

Universal is teaming up with Netflix and Stranger Things creators, The Duffer Brothers, to open the portal to the Upside Down. You won’t have to wait until season three to explore the world of Eleven, Will, and the predatory Demogorgon in Hawkins, Indiana. Relive some of the creepiest moments of season one while venturing into familiar scenes like the Bryers home and Hawkins National Laboratory. Brace yourself for surprising twists and unexpected turns around every corner – no place is safe.

Enjoy other fresh additions on the scaregrounds such as themed foods replicating Eleven’s waffle obsession and the Terror Tram: Dreadtime Storiez hosted by Halloween Harry – the phantom clown infamous for terrorizing the Universal Studios backlot. Tickets start at $60 a pop.

Location: 100 Universal City Plaza, Universal City, CA 91608. See it on Google maps.
