Halloween Horror Nights X was the tenth annual Halloween Horror Nights event in Orlando. The event was located at Universal Studios Florida. For the first time in its history, an original event icon, Jack the Clown, was created to be used in advertisements touting, "Not Afraid of the Dark? You Don't Know Jack!" The event featured five houses, four scarezones, two shows, two haunted rides, and a parade, and was held for 19 days in October 2000.
October 6, 7, 12-15, 19-31
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.
