History and Location 1991 and 1992 Edit

When Universal first opened one of their biggest most hyped up ride was the JAWS ride. When Universal first opened, the shark on the ride would not work so, they ended up using the line for the ride for a haunted house for their new Halloween Event called Fright Nights. They decided to call it The Dungeon of Terror and it would be the only haunted house for the event. This house was a huge hit and so they decided to bring it back the following year for Halloween Horror Nights II. Because the JAWS shark still wouldn't work, they put the Dungeon of Terror back into the JAWS Queue.

Description 1991-1992 Edit

Watch as a full cast of madmen and monsters wreak havoc and mayhem within the walls of the dungeons dark, dark depths.

Description 1994 Edit

There is no apparent escape! Are you to become the next victim of the night?

Facade Edit

The facade looked like the wall of a castle with a cage with a woman hanging above. On top of the castle were scareactors that would yell at the people that were below them.

Some of the rooms featured Edit
