    For the first time, Universal will be allowing kids to come to Universal Hollywood, and to take in trick or treating festivities with the opportunity for kids to dress up and meet their favorite characters.



    Celebrate Halloween Week at Universal Studios Hollywood | Events & Seasonal | Universal Studios Hollywood

    Additionally, a special Daytime "Light's On" experience will be added, so guests can get the chance to see Stranger Things without the need to go to Halloween Horror Nights from October 29th to November 2nd.

    Does that mean it'll be staffed with scareactors, or just a daytime walkthough of the sets? Either way, kind of a cool option, especially if it's not an upcharge. Also, is that going to be daily? What'll be it's hours?

    Sounds like it's a relatively small effort, but since it's included in regular park admission, I'm fine with that. Could be fun!

    Considering the description, it sounds more like a version of UTH, but with just ST.

    Seems like weird timing. Shouldn’t they have done this all weekends in Oct like Knott’s? I know horror nights is king but this good idea with only 1 weekend seems like they don’t know what they are doing.

    ^I would assume this is sort of a test run to see how it goes. I'd imagine if it went well, we'd easily see more dates (and possibly more experiences?) next year.

    Does anyone know what the daytime hours for Stranger Things walk through will be? I'd imagine they'd have to close it early on Thursday & Friday to set up for HHN.

    Also didn't immediately realize that the ST walk through and the Family Halloween event are not the same dates. That was a bit confusing they way it was announced; I initially thought they were all part of the same event.

    Also wish they could do a day time walk through of Universal Monsters...

    With thanks to @Rideguy70, Universal has clarified how ST will work.

    Interesting. On a similar note, this is the first year Kennywood Park has done a kids Halloween event on Sunday and Saturday afternoons. The weekend evenings are still a HHN (but pretty small in comparison) type event...Perhaps we're looking at a new Halloween season trend.

    So these walkthroughs are a free thing available to day guests? I am so out of the loop...

    This is, more or less, the first time that any maze has done a lights on tour for the public (atleast on the west coast).
