The Halloween Horror Nights event in Hollywood is a Halloween event presented at Universal Studios Hollywood. It is one of the largest Halloween events in the United States. The event has been presented sparingly since 1992 and as an annual event, recently. It is an offshoot of Halloween Horror Nights Orlando which has been presented annually since 1991.

History[]

Although a Halloween event was held at the park in 1986, Halloween Horror Nights didn't appear there until 1992. Including that year, it has been presented eight times. Although the event has not created original icons like those in Orlando, two of the Event Icons, The Director and Jack the Clown, were used in 2006 and 2007. Additionally, the New Line Cinema trio of Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, and Leatherface, were featured in 2007, and 2008. They reappeared in 2010, but Leatherface was replaced by Jigsaw from Saw.

Halloween Horror Nights 1986 Tragedy[]

Universal Studios decided to hold a Halloween event in 1986 in order to make up for the slow autumn season. Taking a cue from Knotts Berry Farm, which had been successfully adopting a haunted Halloween event for over 14 years, Universal started Halloween Horror Nights, with it's logo being a Jack-O-Lantern being sawed in half with a chainsaw. The signature attraction would be The Terror Tram, which would be a nightime version of the Backlot Tour, only with scareactors hiding in the shadows ready to jump out and attack guests. Unfortunatly, during one night a Scareactor got a little over-enthusiastic in his performance, fell between two of the tram cars, and was crushed to death. Universal would not have a Halloween event for over six years afterward, and discontinued the scaraector "attacks" on moving trams entirely. The tragedy is likely the reason that when the event was first started in Florida, it was done under the title of "Fright Nights ", and didn't feature the bloody pumpkin image that first year, however the chainsaw pumpkin image from Hollywood would be used for Florida's event in 1992 & 1993.
