Halloween Horror Nights 26 was Universal Studios Orlando 's annual Halloween event for 2016. The event was a direct sequel to Halloween Horror Nights 25, with Chance being this year's icon. It originally ran from September 16th to October 31st 2016, but due to Hurricane Matthew cancelling the event on October 6th and 7th the event was extended for a weekend, finally ending on November 5th. Halloween Horror Nights featured nine houses, five scarezones, and two live shows, with a separately ticketed house and a scareactor dining experience.


The lore behind Halloween Horror Nights 26 was a continuation of the previous event. After Jack the Clown and Chance put on last year's The Carnage Returns, they both got caught. Jack got put away in his box, while Chance got put away in an asylum.


Chance's new look for Halloween Horror Nights 26.

While she was incarcerated, Chance entered her "theatre of the mind," which meant what whatever gothic nightmares occurred in her mind would soon become a horrific reality.
