SPOILER WARNING

Photos of Stranger Things, a haunted house attraction at USS Halloween Horror Nights 8, are featured here to showcase its design and atmosphere. This is also a page for haunt fans to share their thoughts.

Photography and video recording is not permitted inside any Haunted Houses at Universal Studios Singapore during Halloween Horror Nights.

Overview and Thoughts

This house marks a few “firsts” for Singapore. We all know it’s the first Singapore haunted house based on a major intellectual property (IP), and a world’s first for three Universal Studios theme parks to partner with Netflix. After the first preview, I learned that all three parks designed their houses independently, although they worked off the same reference materials from Netflix. So we have three interpretations of Season 1 around the world.

While Singapore had access to some screen-accurate costumes, such as the Demogorgon, the local team had to reproduce scenic elements by creating new art via illustration. Textiles, wallpapers and even fixtures had to be fabricated just for the haunted house, and the team referenced video clips and stills from the Stranger Things show.

It’s no secret that Singapore’s version of the house is the smallest of the three, and the only one built outdoors. While the scenes may lack the grandiose Hollywood film set ambiance, it boasts creative transitions and elements not seen in other parks. You’ll need to duck to go through the Upside Down portals, and you will feel immersed in the action and not just walking past the performers. There are also a few unique stunts only performed in Singapore. However, depending on crowds, all these effects may be lost or even missed when the rooms are jammed with too many park guests.

Stranger Things seems to be one of the most popular houses at HHN8, and hopefully this paves the way for major IP houses in future Horror Nights events in Singapore.

The 12 iconic scenes in Singapore’s Stranger Things maze can be roughly divided to:
1. Welcome to Hawkins
2. Byers’ Home – Living Room and Corridor
3. Will Byers’ Bedroom
4. Transition to Mirkwood (Shed and Forest with Jonathan)
5. Upside Down Forest
6. Enroute to Hawkins Lab
7. Hawkins Lab – Elevator scene
8. Hawkins Lab – Rift Lab scene
9. Castle Byers
10. The Library
11. Hawkins Middle School Corridors
12. Hawkins Middle School – Classroom Finale
