History and Location[edit | edit source]
On July 25th, 2019, Universal announced that a haunted house based on the 1988 film Killer Klowns From Outer Space would be coming to their Halloween Horror Nights event that year. This is most likely due to the popularity of the scarezone of the same name at the previous year's event. The codename for this house was "cotton", a reference to the cotton candy cocoons.
The house would be the fifth located in the Shrek Theater. The houses put in this location would be built within the second, less-used theater for the Shrek 4D attraction.
Description[edit | edit source]
Send in the klowns! The Killer Klowns are returning to Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights in an all-new side-splitting haunted house. The crazed klowns are back to wreak havoc and remind you why you were afraid of clowns in the first place.
THEIR JOKES WILL SLAY YOU
If there ever was a reason why people are afraid of clowns, this is it.
The Killers Klowns From Outer Space have landed in an all-new haunted house. There's nothing funny about these strange, clown-like creatures who use side-splitting antics and weird alien technology to devour their victims. Don't let them encase you in one of their cotton candy cocoons or you could end up as a gooey snack.
One gag is ghastlier than the next as they have you shrieking from clown to clown like some twisted three-ring circus. These Killer Klowns won't make you scream with laughter, just scream.
Media Description[edit | edit source]
The zone was some much fun last year. What they've done they have taken all of those klowns, cram them into a very tight maze, guests are going to walk through the movie, experience all of the klowns that we know and love, and some new ones this year, and a very special surprise appearance... Klownzilla himself will be there.
Story[edit | edit source]
Go beyond the mayhem and madness of last year’s wildly popular scare zone and step right up for an entire haunted house experience based on the cult classic film, Killer Klowns from Outer Space. This new experience will feature a gaggle of new characters including the baby Klowns, Boco, and Klownzilla, as well as new scenery like the Klowns’ circus-tent spaceship, and the cotton candy cocoon storage room where they keep their victims.
Experience[edit | edit source]
Queue[edit | edit source]
The queue entrance was in Hollywood to the right of the Hello Kitty Shop. Before entering you see the Terenzi's Ice Cream Truck were you can meet Shorty and Slim. The queue would go through the queue line for Shrek 4D. The extended queue would go down Shrek Alley in a series of loops. You would enter the house through a backstage door, into the second theater.
Haunted House[edit | edit source]
Entering the house, guests would be greeted with the smell of popcorn and some haystacks in front of a red and yellow striped curtain. Guests could see the silhouettes of Shorty the Clown (recreating the "knock my block off scene") and Jumbo the Clown (waving at the farmer whose voice could be heard). After that, guests would enter the streets of Crescent Cove, where they could see Shorty the Clown boxing on the left, and a shadow puppet show in front of them (showing the 'attractive woman silhouette', a dinosaur, an elephant, and a bunny). Also, guests could see the decapitated corpse of Slug (with his head in a nearby trashcan) and a dumpster with a corpse shoved in it that would periodically move. Transitioning into the next room, guests would be attacked by Slim the Clown. In the next room, guests could see a clown puppet show. All of a sudden, Spikey the Clown jumps out from behind the theater.
Entering the next few rooms, guests would see Officer Mooney being controlled by Jumbo the Clown, Frank the Clown running in through a sliding door, Fatso the Clown pretending to give guests a heart box before a Popcorn Clown jumps out of the box, and Bibbo the Clown holding a stack of pizza boxes as Shorty the Clown pops out from inside of them. Next, guests would enter a dark hallway where they are pelted with "pies" (air). They would then emerge outside of the funhouse and see the melted corpse of Officer Harrison outside, covered in pies with a cherry on top. Bibbo the Clown (or Crinkles the Clown) then jumps out from behind a curtain across the corpse. Once guests have entered the funhouse, they would be attacked by Shorty the Clown, who is boxing. Rudy the Clown also attacks next to a clown firefighter pole. The next room features two dropping panels, revealing the faces of Jumbo and Fatso the Clown. Across from that, sliding doors would also reveal a static Crinkles the Clown and a living Slam the Clown, who jumps out at guests.
The next room has three red buttons, with each one making a honking sound. After that, guests would enter the lair for the female clowns, where two Rosebud the Clown Girls would jump out. Next to the second one, guests could see a static Daisy the Clown Girl, with growing breasts. In the next room, guests could find three more red buttons, each spraying guests with water. After entering the next room, guests would enter the Klown Kathedral and encounter a giant, moving Klownzilla puppet, as Rich Terenzi looks in awe. Entering another hallway, guests would be attacked by Crinkles the Clown on the left, and a giant Klownzilla head on the right. The next room featured a long hallway made of cotton candy, as two Popcorn Clowns attack from holes in the wall. After that, guests would enter a small room where they could see a girl trapped behind a disappearing wall. The final room of the house was the Cotton Candy Storage Room, which featured many cotton candy cocoons and the popcorn making machine. The room is filled with Klowns, with fake klowns including Rudy the Clown, Slam the Clown, and Frank the Clown, with real klowns including Chubby the Clown, Boco the Clown, and Joe the Clown. Before guests leave the house, Paul Terenzi jumps out from behind a black curtain.

- The Hydroponic Flower Garden featured in this haunted house was inspired by the film's sequence when Jumbo the Clown squirts Mooney in the face.
- This house features more smells than usual including some good smells, as Halloween Horror Nights Designers found that good scents can be more effecting than disgusting ones as they tend to disarm and comfort guests...making them more prone to an intense scare moment.
- There are three GATs (Guest Activated Triggers) in this house, one sprays others in the previous room, another drops some doors revealing some of the Killer Klowns in some boo holes in the previous room, and the third sprays you.
- During the opening night of the event, the Chiodo brothers, the creators of "Killer Klowns from Outer Space", stopped by to express their excitement for Universal bringing the film to life as a house as they did for it as a scarezone last year.
