Thank You For An Incredible 25th Year of Halloween Horror Nights
I can’t believe Halloween Horror Nights 25 is over. It feels like a blink of an eye since it began.
This year has truly been a memorable experience for all involved. The event promised to be something fitting of a 25th year. And through the amazing talents of so many people—armies of people all across Universal Orlando—it was better than I could have been possibly imagined. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
This year saw the biggest house slate we’ve ever had. It contained the largest scareactor cast in our studio streets. And our 25th brought back our main maniac, the master of our scaremonies, the Horror Nights icon among icons—Jack the Clown. With him came chaos and the “Dark Fantastic” in all its gory glory.
On behalf of the entire team, I want to thank everyone from all over the world who chose to attend our Halloween event. From the die hard fans to the first timers, your support and love allowed this event to grow from its three-night beginnings in 1991 to the beast that it has become.
I also want to thank the amazing people who, night after night, gave their all in performing as monsters and maniacs. Your dedication and commitment to delivering the fear is truly what makes this event what it is. Those who performed one night or all 30, I can’t thank you enough for being with us. It’s not lost on me what it takes to do what you do. As a former Scareactor, I know the triumphs and the challenges these roles bring. The life blood of this event is our cast and crews, and our success is due to your efforts. Bottom line—thank you.
This year will surely be one for the books, including the first ever Social Media meet-up—The Last Laugh—held last night (highlights coming soon!).
And while I of course can’t go into detail, I can say we’re already hard at work on Halloween Horror Nights 26.
In fact, mark your calendars now: Halloween Horror Nights 26 will be on select nights Sept. 16 – Oct. 31.
Happy Halloween, everyone. Here’s to the next 25 years of fear!
