Halloween Horror Nights V was the first year to have a palpable mascot, “The Crypt Keeper” from the HBO series “Tales From the Crypt.”
This year was the first Horror Nights event to use a Roman numeral character in the logo. The roman numeral titles, as well as the general yellow logo, would carry until the event moved to Islands of Adventure in 2002 for “Halloween Horror Nights: Islands of Fear.”
Another first for Horror Nights was to make mention of and use the term “scareactors,” in reference to the actors.
It was also the first year to feature the now-infamous Midway of the Bizarre Scare Zone. This year, the well known “Dungeon of Terror” house was re-named “Crypt Keeper’s Dungeon of Terror” in honor of the new mascot.
