Stranger Things Have Happened

If American Horror Story was popular, Stranger Things was monumental. The Netflix juggernaut brought the zeitgeist and mountains of licensed merchandise to Halloween Horror Nights™ Hollywood, along with a younger audience than ever before. Stampedes of adolescent horror fans were greeted with mazes based on adjacent gateway drugs, like Poltergeist and Trick ‘r Treat. Fans of the rougher stuff still had Michael Myers and the first full maze dedicated to The Purge. Scare Zones nearly doubled from the previous year and Holidayz in Hell would restart the La Llorona tradition of zones becoming mazes in 2019.

Event Facts

  • For the first time, the Universal Monsters earned their own dedicated maze. The resulting fan-favorite, featuring music by Slash, re-established them as icons of Halloween Horror Nights™ and the studio that practically invented the genre. This monster revival would continue in Hollywood and inspire a similar maze in Orlando the following year.
  • Though it wasn’t announced as the Terror Tram’s final year, the writing was on the wall. Recycling the Hollywood Harry character from 2016 and a hodgepodge of masks from unrelated mazes, Dreadtime Storyz was a compromise to the mounting costs of doing brand-name IPs justice. With Stranger Things taking up the entirety of Soundstage 29, the Terror Tram looked less like tradition and more like obligation.
