A New Name

With the success of Fright Nights (1991), it was inevitable that the event would return bigger and better. But first, a new name was needed… one that Universal could call their own. Trademarked in 1986 for Universal Studios Hollywood’s event, it was the perfect fit: Halloween Horror Nights™.

Along with the name, Universal Orlando used an image that was originally made for Hollywood’s merchandise: a Halloween pumpkin being torn to bits by a chainsaw. With the new name and image, Universal brought back the Dungeon of Terror (1992) in the queue of the JAWS Attraction (still under renovation at the time) along with a brand-new Haunted House The People Under the Stairs (1992). The Haunted House was based on Wes Craven’s horror film of the same name, released by Universal Pictures in November of 1991. Robosaurus, a gigantic robotic dinosaur as the name encapsulates, was at the event and would breathe fire and devour cars to the entertainment of guests. This marked the first year of Bill & Ted’s Excellent Halloween Adventure, a show that riffed on pop culture and featured dance numbers with the titular characters William “Bill” S. Preston Esq. and Theodore “Ted” Logan from Orion Pictures’ BILL & TED’S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE (1989, 1991, 2020) films. The show was a staple of Horror Nights™ until its final “tour” during Halloween Horror Nights™ 27 (2017). The Thunder Dome street show and The Pendragons magic show also returned.

Event Facts

  • Halloween Horror Nights (1992) was home to the very first appearance of the Bill and Ted show. This show, which parodied current trends and the latest buzz in Hollywood, would soon become an annual show held at every Halloween Horror Nights event to come (ending in 2017).
  • This event also featured the first appearance of Robosaurus, a giant fire-breathing, car-eating robot that roamed the streets of New York.
  • The event was also home to the second appearance of The Dungeon of Terror. The following year Dungeon of Terror did not return, as the JAWS Attraction finally opened to guests after a very long rebuilding process.
