Yesterday Universal Studio’s sent a teaser out announcing that today, 6-9-16 they would #DareToChance and “It’s Her Turn” for this year’s Halloween Horror Nights 26 ICON!
Today it’s been made official that Jack’s Harley Quinn of Horror will be your ICON for Halloween Horror Nights 26!
“While Jack is away, It’s her turn to dance, her turn to play”!
“You won’t stand a Chance”!
If you’ve kept up with the history of HHN you probably already know who Chance is, if you haven’t and are new to HHN, we’ll fill you in.
Jack was set to have a better half? in 2002 when the concept was created, however her name wasn’t originally Chance. Her name would be Jill as in “Jack and Jill“.
In 2010 Universal hosted the VIP Lounge at Halloween Horror Night’s. These were weekly events taking a look at various aspects of Halloween Horror Nights over the years, one of the weeks was based on ICONS and this is where we saw the concept and image created for Jill.
This would never come to be for 2002, as we ended up with The Caretaker for Halloween Horror Nights 12.
It wasn’t till 2007 when we would first see Jack’s main squeeze come to light at Halloween Horror Nights 17: Carnival of Carnage and her name would be Chance, and her character being inspired by Harley Quinn from DC’s Batman series, thus the title “Harley Quinn of Horror”.
She was part of the main stage show “The Carnival of Carnage” along side Jack. The show, influenced by magical kills ran at various times throughout the night.
Chance would later return and be featured in various scarezones and houses featuring past Halloween Horror Nights and ICONS.
In 2015, the 25th year of Halloween Horror Nights Universal brought back the only ICON that could make 25 years special, Jack the Clown. It would later be revealed that Chance would once again be by his side for a main stage show, the show would be called “The Carnage Returns”, and this time Chance had more time to shine.
Both her and Jack would have more of a “aged” look and more depth to the characters. She was a highlight and fan favorite to a lot of fans!
This year she is set to take the reigns of Halloween Horror Nights 26, how will she be featured, will she get her own show? Only time will tell.. and for now, her reign has begun! #DareToChance!
Universal Studios’ “Halloween Horror Nights” is the ultimate Halloween event. For more than 20 years, guests from around the world have visited “Halloween Horror Nights” in Orlando and Hollywood to become victims inside their own horror film. The streets of each coast’s event are transformed into highly-themed scare zones where menacing “scare-actors” lunge from every darkened corner. Multiple movie-quality haunted houses are erected throughout the event, based on anything from iconic slasher films to hit horror television series to haunting original stories.
