The end of summer is finally upon us, and with that, it is immediately time to celebrate Halloween. Because let’s face it, it’s going to be a short-lived couple of months before Santa Claus shows up on November 1 and punches us all in the face. That said, let’s get this Halloween thing started, and let’s get it started right: There’s no better way to begin this spooky season than by immersing yourself into the world of your favorite scary movies (and television shows) and getting the living daylights scared out of you at Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights.

Halloween Horror Nights is arguably Universal Studios biggest event of the year, drawing in sold-out crowds every single weekend, and there’s a lot to look forward to this year. Along with the addition of a new Poltergeistthemed maze, you’ll be able to wander through the frightening maze worlds of The First Purge, Trick ‘R Treat, Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Meyers, and The Horrors of Blumhouse: Chapter Two. In addition to these, the Universal Monsters maze celebrates the original cinematic monsters that essentially invented the horror film, reawakening all of the classic creeps (Frankenstein, Dracula, The Mummy, etc.), and reimagines them into more terrifying, modern versions of themselves. Fun fact: This maze is also terrifyingly soundtracked by Slash.

But, wait–there’s more! Universal Studios Hollywood has upped the ante this year by adding a can’t-miss maze attraction that you’re most likely going to love a whole lot. For the first time ever, Universal has partnered up with Netflix to bring the insanely popular Stranger Thingsto life, giving visitors an incredibly cool and frightening opportunity to interact with the characters, environments, and iconic scenes from the show.
