"There is more to paralyzing fear than a scream in the darkness or a cool breath on the back of the neck. Or the grip of the undead.

Fear that truly consumes us comes from deep inside our souls, stirred by something we don't always understand and rarely have the chance to confront. Until now."

Halloween Horror Nights: Twenty Years of Fear was both the 20th year of Orlando's event and the second anniversary year after Sweet 16. The icon this year was Adaru, The Sumerian God of Fear.

The website was released on June 13 2010, with an open audition call and a Twenty Years of Fear gallery featuring a retrospective with pictures and video of events and characters of Horror Nights past. A lantern with 2 X's on was the the main prop of the year (as with Sweet 16's birthday cake, The Usher's flashlight, etc).

On the website, clicking on the lantern's flame released pictures of the past Icons and took you to a page with pictures of props and facades: a mummy sarcophagus, a facade for a maze set in Shadow Creek, and a side view of the facade for another maze.

A continuation of the previous Legendary Truth campaign was been introduced, called Legendary Truth: Awakening.

On August 27, 2010, Fear was Revealed.

  • The Orfanage: Ashes to Ashes (JAWS Queue) - Ashes to ashes, forever now dust. For years she has existed in the shadows, never getting her due.

    The map for Halloween Horror Nights: Twenty Years of Fear.

  • PsychoScareapy: Echoes of Shadybrook (Soundstage 23) - The truth, as they say, is far stranger than fiction, and in this instance they happen to be correct. Although Shadybrook's doors have indeed been closed for the last 15 years, the place is still very much alive with all of the criminally insane souls that have ever walked its halls.

    The JACK-O lantern.

  • Havoc: Dogs of War (Sprung Tent 2)- Ten years ago, the Shadowcreek Enterprise was tasked with developing an elite corp of soldiers. They succeeded. Through an inhalant that includes a compound of testosterone, adrenaline, and other anesthetics, Shadow Creek's latest run of volunteer test subjects are ready for inspection. The project name: HAVOC. The subjects are known simply as the Dogs of War.
  • Catacombs: Black Death Rising (Sprung Tent 1) - During a plague of Paris and Marseilles in 1534, thousands died due to an undisclosed viral outbreak. A group of doctors took it upon themselves to quarantine the most infected citizens of the city. They had no way of knowing that the townspeople would betray them, sealing them into their doom. They have been unable to escape for almost five hundred years. Now that the dead inside have found a way out, they are rising to take their centuries old vengeance on any living being that dares to enter the Catacombs.
  • ZombieGeddon (Disaster! Queue) - The United States government has re-taken the continental United States, and is actively engaged in clearing the remaining infested pockets of Canada. The government also licenses and sanctions private companies to capture "un-live" subjects and use them as practical targets during these training sessions. Dozens of independent training consultant "companies" spring up, promising the best training that money can buy...and then there's ZAP...The Zombie Awareness Program.
  • Legendary Truth: The Wyandot Estate (Soundstage 22) - The Spirit Seekers have come up with a machine that actually gathers spirits toward it. The group has decided to do a live broadcast from inside one of the most reportedly "haunted" sites in the entire United States, The Wyandot Estate, built in the 1920's in Carey, Ohio by the entrepreneur Malcolm Wyandot and his wife Lydia. The house has been rumored to be haunted since Malcolm brutally killed 13 dinner guests and his wife Lydia before committing suicide on October 30, 1929. The team is about to get more than they bargained for as the murdered hear their call and answer with terrible violence.


  • HHN: 20 Years of Fear (Hollywood) - Step into the shadows of the last Twenty Years of Fear. Move toward the lantern, and encounter the most frightening characters of Halloween Horror Nights past.
  • Fear Revealed (Mel's Drive-In) - The souls of Chaos, Death, Sacrifice, Mythos and Vengeance - He created them and gave them terror. Each with a part to play, they fulfilled their tasks. Their malice provided him bone, their rage gave him blood, and their terror fulfilled his soul. What has been 19 cycles for some have been eons for him. He's waited patiently for the final piece, and now on the 20th cycle... HE IS REVEALED.
  • Zombie Gras (San Francisco) - This Mardi Gras parade has gone severely off course. Infected by the North American zombie infestation, the undead walk among us, searching for their next meal...
  • Esqueleto Muerte (Plaza of the Stars) - Revel in the seductive taunts of Death as you wind through a glowing skeletal nightmare.
  • Saws N' Steam (New York) - Enormous trenches in the earth's crust have opened below its vast oceans, exposing them to intense heat. Steam power is essential to the inhabitants of New Yorkshire, but diminishing oceans have put the city in jeopardy, forcing the citizens to evil lengths. Beware upon entering the city, as the water in your body is now a coveted resource. And the citizens will stop at nothing to get it.
  • The Coven (Shrek Alley)- Beware the Cult of the Raven! Enter this witch's realm at your peril, as unbelievers will be condemned to death.
