Universal Orlando is heading back to the Upside Down later this year.

The resort announced Wednesday that Netflix’s “Stranger Things” will once again be featured in a house at Halloween Horror Nights.

“This year’s chilling mazes pick up where last year’s mazes left off, continuing the suspenseful storyline where a predatory entity terrorizes the small town of Hawkins, Indiana, and delving even further into the parallel universe, referred to as the Upside Down,” Universal said in a press release.

The third season of the show will begin streaming July 4 on Netflix. Universal said the houses in both Orlando and Hollywood will include parts of “Stranger Things 3,” moving the story ahead to 1985 as the main characters begin to grow up, as well as featuring elements of the second season.

Last year, the “Stranger Things” house was so popular that Universal took the unprecedented step of keeping the house open for regular guests for one day after HHN had wrapped.

The return of the house is the first announcement of intellectual property being utilized for the 29th edition of Halloween Horror Nights. The event will be the longest HHN ever, running 41 nights from September 6 through November 2 at Universal Studios Florida.

As previously revealed by Universal, this year’s HHN will feature 10 house and five scare zones, the same number as the 2018 event.
