Terra Guard Run was one of the four official scarezones that were featured during Halloween Horror Nights: Tales of Terror. It was located in the Port of Entry.

History and Location[edit | edit source]

For their 2005 event, Universal created their own demented country that runs on blood and sacrifice. The entry scarezone would serve as an introduction to this strange new world. Various creatures lurked the entry streets of Islands of Adventure in the scarezone titled Terra Guard Run.

The scarezone would be located in the Port of Entry, the entrance area to the park that is also between Marvel Super Hero Island and Seuss Landing. This would be the final year the area was used to hold a scarezone, as the Halloween Horror Nights event moved from Islands of Adventure to Universal Studios Orlando.

Description[edit | edit source]

The ghouls, goons and monstrous brutes who populate this strange world get their first look at the hapless victims who are about to enter their domain.

On a dark pathway surrounded by the Queen's Black Guard, this is a horrifying gauntlet of the terrors ahead. Picking victims carefully, creatures from each and every realm wait in the shadows and fog as unsuspecting mankind enters.

Role in Terra Cruentus[edit | edit source]

This was an area of the Terra Gate. Here, all of the creatures from the different realms of Terra Cruentus gather to witness the Terra Throne's Rituale de Blud. The throne itself is made from the towering, twisted Gorewood Tree, the result of a black oak sapling that grew in a blood soaked battle field, transforming the tree from wood to iron. Every ceremony, the Bloodberry grows from its branches. These plump, purple fruits are plucked from the tree to make the addictive Bloodberry Wine which is served to the Black Guards in the Demon Cantina.

Website[edit | edit source]

On the map of Terra Cruentus found on the Halloween Horror Nights: Tales of Terror website, visitors could click on and view the Terra Gate region of the map. There, they could access the website page for Terra Guard Run by clicking on an impaled scarecrow-like figure. On the Terra Guard Run page, visitors could see a picture of the Terra Gate, with two creatures lurking inside. Reading signs on the gate would reveal that visitors were lured to the Terra Gate by the Storyteller in order to satisfy Terra Cruentus' need for blood and human flesh. If visitors chose to enter, they would fulfill the need of the "thirsty world". If they turned back, everything would be ruined.
