It had already been announced that Netflix's Stranger Things is going to have a major presence at this year's Halloween Horror Nights, but now they've announced a menu dedicated to the hit series. For those of you who have ever wanted to eat Eleven's Eggo stack (Waffle Extravaganza) with whipped cream and candy, you're in luck. Halloween Horror Nights kicks off tomorrow, September 14th, so Stranger Things fans won't have to wait very long to get in on this very special menu, celebrating the Upside Down.
Kicking off the Stranger Things menu is Benny's Upside Down Burger, which pays tribute to the late Benny Hammond of Benny's Burgers, aka the first person to care for Eleven. The beef burger comes with spicy queso and Flamin' Hot Cheetos, served on a potato roll with lettuce, tomatoes, and a side of tater tots. Keeping the evil up, fans can also get the Demogorgon Totcho, which is tater tots with spicy queso sauce, chili, Flamin' Hot Cheetos, sour cream, and scallions. Sadly, the Totcho will only be available at the Universal Studios Hollywood location.
Universal Studios Orlando gets the exclusive Christmas Tree Light Cupcake. Visitors can choose between chocolate or red velvet with whipped cream frosting and covered with jelly beans. Going back to dishes that are available in both parks, there are a variety of waffle dishes to pay tribute to Eleven's favorite food including, the Waffles Galore, Fudge Dipped Waffles, the aforementioned Waffle Extravaganza, and then even some Eleven Mini Doughnuts. The mini doughnuts are covered in powdered sugar or cinnamon and topped with red frosting, to mimic Eleven's powerful nosebleeds. There's also some Loaded Macaroni and Cheese, Mini Meatball Sandwiches, the Syrup and Waffles non-alcoholic beverage, the Waffle Ice Cream Sandwich, Banana Foster, and the Eggo Doughnut.
Halloween Horror Nights visitors may need repeat visits this year in order to try each and every one of the new menu items from Stranger Things. Unfortunately, the menu items will not be available at the Universal Studios Singapore location. After you get your stomachs full of sugar and Demogorgon Totcho, you can head over to the debut of the Upside Down maze, which already looks amazing from the teaser clips that have been released.
The parallel universe, referred to as the Upside Down, that terrorized the small town of Hawkins, Indiana in Stranger Things, will bring the chittering, predatory Demogorgon to Halloween Horror Nights to stalk unwitting guests as they encounter iconic scenes, characters and environments from the mesmerizing series. The mazes will be authentic representations of Stranger Things, designed to transport guests into artfully recreated scenes and storylines. From the menacing Hawkins National Laboratory, under the U.S. Department of Energy, to the Byers home adorned with an erratic display of flashing Christmas lights and the eerie Upside Down woods oozing a shower of floating orb-like spores, the chilling new mazes will offer surprising twists and unexpected turns around every corner.
Stranger Things isn't the only thing to do at this year's Halloween Horror Nights. Visitors will be able to escape the homecoming of a bloodthirsty slasher in Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers, face evil with Poltergeist, get lost in the Trick 'r Treat maze, get chased by Chucky and his demonic toys, eat human cotton candy with the Killer Klowns from Outer Space, visit the post-apocalyptic world of The Walking Dead, and much, much more. Just don't eat too much of the Stranger Things menu before visiting these new mazes.
