The EventEdit

Halloween Horror Nights: X was the first of the events to feature an original Icon. Jack, the evil clown, who took over the event and part of the theming was based on his character, including a haunted carnival and a scarezone taken over by other clowns. According to the event, Universal Studios brought some of the original pieces of Dr. Oddfellow's Carnival of Thrills to highlight the event. The Publicity and Marketing Department decided to play on the urban legend of Jack by being able to acquire the original box in which Jack was trapped. Jack appeared in the Jacked Up show.


  • Anxiety in 3-D (Soundstage 22), Enter the 3-D virtual reality of the house that Jack built, and find yourself trapped in a malfunctioning 3-D video game.
  • Total Chaos (Soundstage 22), Wander through a top secret underground military base where captured aliens are on the loose and thirsting for blood.
  • The Fearhouse (Nazarman's), Try and make your way through a carnival where mirrored hallways, darkened corridors and hideous creatures make your escape unlikely.
  • Universal Classic Monster Mania (Earthquake Queue), Experience "reel" terror as classic movie monsters are transformed into hideously gruesome and grotesque abominations.
  • Dark Torment (Earthquake Queue), After riding Earthquake, you'll descend to the labyrinths of a nightmarish underworld where hordes of evil demons torment you at every turn.
