History and Location
On August 27th, 2015, Universal announced that a scarezone that served as a tribute to the past 25 years of Halloween Horror Nights would be featured at that years Halloween Horror Nights event. The scarezone would have stages for a few of the most famous Halloween Horror Nights icons. On these stages, the icons would periodically kill someone in a gory fashion.
Also, roaming the streets were various scareactors from the past 25 years of Horror Nights. The scarezone would be located in an area called Hollywood, an area of Universal Studios Florida located to the right of the park entrance. It is a recreation of the city of Hollywood (minus the famous sign).
Six years later, Universal would give the Icons their own haunted house with HHN Icons: Captured. Additionally, there was also an anniversary scarezone featuring all the icons that same year called 30 Years 30 Fears.
The eeriest icons and most cadaverous characters of the last 25 years of Halloween Horror Nights have returned. The Caretaker, The Storyteller, The Director, The Usher and more are back to relive every monstrous memory.
This scarezone was sort of like a combination between Horror Comes Home and Fear Revealed.
The main focus of the scarezone was 4 stages, dotted around the street, which were home to the four heralds of Fear other than Jack: The Caretaker, The Director, The Storyteller and the Usher. These stages were both used as a photo opportunity for guests to take pictures of and with the icons, and also hosted mini shows, which were based on sets from the characters history, such as the mortuary, a film set, the North Hollow Household, and the Universal Palace Theater. These 'kills' involved the icon on the stage periodically receiving a victim and killing them in there own unique way. The Caretaker ripped out their heart, The Director electrocuted them in a bathtub, The Storyteller cut out their tongue and The Usher beat them to death with a flashlight. The stages were finished with banners above them that depicted a stylized image of the icon on them.
The scarezone also featured the usual roaming scareactors in between the various stages, all of them being characters from previous years.
