This year, Halloween Horror Nights brings a taste of the biggest names in horror and pop culture directly to Universal Orlando Resort, where guests can enjoy delectable foods inspired by Netflix’s “Stranger Things,” Sony Pictures’ classic film Ghostbusters and more.

Created by Universal Orlando’s award-winning culinary team, this year’s cuisine will give guests a new way to immerse themselves in the world’s premier Halloween event – with the food becoming as much of a “must-do” experience as the haunted houses, scare zones and live entertainment. Guests will enjoy delicious offerings based on everything from iconic characters and locations from the pop culture greats invading this year’s event to ‘80s-themed treats and original creations that put a twist on Halloween classics. They’ll get to visit a food location themed after Starcourt Mall from “Stranger Things” season 3, snack on tasty green popcorn inspired by the voracious Slimer from Ghostbusters, sip on a Candy Corn frozen beverage and so much more.

Here’s what guests can enjoy at Universal Orlando Resort:
