History and Location[edit | edit source]
For the past five years, Universal had haunted houses based on the Universal Classic Monsters at their Halloween Horror Nights events in Orlando. For the new millennium, Universal decided to try something different for Halloween Horror Nights X. They decided to "buff up" the Classic Monsters, making them even more horrifying in a house called Universal Classic Monster Mania.
This house would be one of two located in the large extended queue for the Earthquake attraction, the other being Dark Torment.
The Universal Classic Monster house idea would not be used for three years until Horror in Wax in 2004. However, this house would once again be different from the previous incarnations, as it was set in a wax museum based on the Universal Classic Monsters that had burned down, causing the monsters to melt.
Description[edit | edit source]
Experience "reel" terror as classic movie monsters are transformed into hideously gruesome and grotesque abominations.
Story[edit | edit source]
According to this, the house took place one a movie set where a horror film was shot many years ago. However, the movie was never released due to the footage mysteriously disappearing.
Experience[edit | edit source]
Queue[edit | edit source]
The map seemingly shows the entrance of this house being to the left of the entrance for Beetlejuice's Graveyard Revue. The queue would most likely go to a backstage area behind the Earthquake building, where the line would loop around multiple times before entering the Earthquake building from the back.
Haunted House[edit | edit source]
Some reports seem to imply that many of the scenes in this house were black and white.
There was a Dracula room that took place in his castle. Dracula would come out with large sharp fangs and a bat head. Another room featured a giant Frankenstein strapped to a table in Frankenstein's Laboratory. Another scene featured a giant graveyard with a hand coming out of a grave. There was also a crypt with many coffins and a hand reaching out of one of them. The Creature From the Black Lagoon also appeared in a woody, swampy type area. The Wolfman also appeared as a giant, ripped wolf in this house. According to this, there was also a scene with floating mummy heads.
