Iconic Halloween Horror Nights Character Returns For 30th Year
JACK IS BACK! Jack the Clown returns as the demented face of Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights as the event commemorates its 30th year!
As the most notorious icon in event history, Jack’s return to Halloween Horror Nights 2021 will be fraught with terror and fear as the grisly circus clown invades every corner of this year’s event with unsuspecting “Jack Attacks” that will send guests running for their lives. His ominous and unrelenting presence will infiltrate every aspect of the event – from the streets, to the haunted houses to the places guests would least expect – leaving nowhere to turn and nowhere to hide.
As the sun sets on days filled with thrills in all of Universal’s theme parks, the night awakens with a frightening chill at Universal Studios Florida. Just as in horror films where the first to wander off meets a terrible fate, you’ll want to bring a friend with you to share the screams and watch your back as you make your way through the horror. You definitely need someone to cling to, someone to hide behind, somebody to panic with as you enter mind-ripping haunted houses inspired by the biggest names in horror. Face nightmarish creatures on streets twisted into sinister scare zones. Lose yourselves in outrageous live entertainment filled with diabolical surprises. Then escape to some of Universal Studios Florida’s most exhilarating attractions.
Thus far, Universal has revealed that 10 all-new terrifying haunted houses, five scare zones, plus live entertainment is planned for the event’s 30th year. Back in March, Universal announced the first haunted house would be Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice, which had a short preview for guests during Universal’s daytime event last year.
Today, Universal Orlando began selling a limited-release t-shirt featuring Jack, both online and in Universal Studios for $28.00.
