Terror Tram: The Director's Cut (2006)

The Terror Tram was the only attraction that was featured during Halloween Horror Nights 1986. The Terror Tram returned six years later during Halloween Horror Nights 1992 (Hollywood). It was a nightime version of the Universal Backlot Tour. The ride had many scareactors jumping at the tram from the shadows. It was located in the Backlot.

The 1986 Tragedy[edit | edit source]

During one night in 1986, one of the scareactors got a little over-enthusiastic in his performance and fell between two of the tram cars, and was crushed to death. Universal would not have a Halloween event for over six years afterward because of this. They also discontinued the scaraector "attacks" on moving trams entirely after this.

Description (1992)[edit | edit source]

A bone-chilling, behind-the-screams ride full of gruesome surprises.
