You’re invited to celebrate our Sweet 16 as Halloween Horror Nights returns to Universal Studios where it all began with a horror-filled homecoming featuring new twists on the most frightening scares from the past 15 years.
7 ALL NEW TERRIFYING HAUNTED HOUSES
3 ALL NEW GHOULISH SCARE ZONES
3 ALL NEW INCREDIBLE SHOWS
Halloween Horror Nights: Sweet 16 acted as a homecoming celebration in honor of the event returning to it’s rightful home, Universal Studios Florida, for the first time since it left in 2002.
“Robosaurus,” the fire-breathing, car-eating monster made a comeback appearance to Horror Nights since its last appearance twelve years prior during Halloween Horror Nights 1994. The show was written around the story line of George A. Romero’s “Land of the Dead.” The show used elements created in the film, from the diversions of the zombies by deploying fireworks into the air, to even posting a sign on the back of Robosaurus with the title “Dead Reckoning.” Dead Reckoning was not only original title of the film, but also the name of the armored tank used to slaughter and overtake the zombies on excursions.
Cindy, the original icon for Horror Nights 2002, was featured in “Screamhouse: Resurrection.” Cindy could be spotted on portraits within the house, as well as inside of a casket in the funeral parlor scene.
“Psychoscareapy: Maximum Madness” featured a “power outage” effect, in which the power to the entire house would shut down, suspending visitors in total darkness for a few moments at a time.
