Take a trip to the upside down during this year’s “Halloween Horror Nights” at Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort. Beginning September 14th through November 3rd. fans of Stranger Things can enjoy an 80’s themed “Halloween Horror Nights” featuring food and fun straight from Hawkins, Indiana.

What can you expect? Each park will unveil a brand new maze and face off with the various supernatural entities featured in the first season of Stranger Things. Each park will also feature themed foods.

At Universal Studios Hollywood fans can expect delicious treats such as:

Benny’s Burgers:  A classic burger named for the show’s diner!

The Upside Down Burger: It would not be an upside down burger unless it was truly served upside down. It also features spicy queso and flamin’ hot Cheetos.

Demogorgon’s Totcho: A unique take on classic nachos, it includes spicy queso, tater tots, chili, flamin’ hot Cheetos and more. 

And of course there will be dishes featuring Eleven’s favorite food: Waffles!

Benny’s Chicken & Waffle Sandwich: Grilled chicken sandwich drizzled with sage-maple aioli and served up on Kellogg’s® Eggo® waffles.

Eleven’s Waffle Extravaganza: A dish Eleven herself would love! Three waffles topped with Reese’s Pieces, jelly beans, chocolate chips and whipped cream.

Universal Orlando Resort is also getting in on the action. Their menu includes:

Waffles Galore: Eleven’s favorite food will be front and center during “Halloween Horror Nights”. Treats include fudge covered waffles, waffle ice cream pocket sundaes, and the Triple Decker Extravaganza, the Orlando version of Eleven’s Waffle Extravaganza!

Syrup & Waffles: Eleven’s dream drink! A non-alcoholic frozen drink perfectly blends decadent syrup flavors with tiny waffles toppings.

Christmas Tree Light Cupcakes: Inspired by the Stranger Things scene where Joyce and Will communicate using Christmas lights, guests can pick from chocolate or red velvet cupcakes with whipped cream frosting and jelly beans as colorful as Christmas lights.

11 Mini Donuts: Delicious donuts coated in powdered sugar or cinnamon and topped with red frosting in ode to Eleven’s nosebleed when using her telekinetic powers.

Pepperoni & Sausage Pizza: This dish is inspired by season one episode one’s scene in which Dustin offers Nancy a slice of this delicious item.

Benny’s Burgers: Universal Orlando’s menu will also include a Benny’s Burgers where guests can grab burgers, chicken sandwiches and more.
