    Halloween Horror Nights 17: Carnival of Carnage

    UNIVERSAL ORLANDO UNLEASHES THE LARGEST AND MOST INTENSE
    HALLOWEEN HORROR NIGHTS IN ITS HISTORY

    NEW LINE CINEMA’S FREDDY KRUEGER, JASON AND LEATHERFACE
    TO BE FEATURED IN JACK’S CARNIVAL OF CARNAGE

    ORLANDO, Fla. (August 30, 2007) – The cool October winds send a shiver down the spine. Jack, Clown Prince of Halloween, grins maniacally from the center of a giant Ferris wheel, beckoning you into his Carnival of Carnage – home to this year’s Halloween Horror Nights event. Once inside, you realize all is not right: curiosity becomes panic becomes fear becomes physical and psychological terror.
    This year, Halloween Horror Nights 17 transforms into the most extreme, fear-filled event in its history with “Carnival of Carnage.” With its leading cast of modern day horror icons, guests will come face-to-face with New Line Cinema’s Freddy Krueger, Jason and Leatherface for the first time ever – and they will find the fear so real they will wish it were just a movie.
    The Carnival of Carnage is so unprecedented that Universal Orlando is creating more haunted houses, more Halloween-themed shows -- and adding more event nights -- than ever before. And, of course, every carnival needs a clown. And when it comes to clowns, there is only one that is maniacal and twisted enough to be Ringmaster for the Carnival of Carnage. That would be Jack.
    “This year, they’ve given me the show,” said Jack. “Fools! Wait ‘till you see what I’ve brought you! I’ll take you places you never knew you could go! They say show business is in the blood – but is it my blood or your’s?”
    Halloween Horror Nights runs 23 nights this year and features eight all-new haunted houses – three of which are created around New Line’s Freddy Krueger, Jason and Leatherface. There will also be four new shows – more than ever before – including a show dedicated to Jack along with an even more excellent and irreverent version of “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Halloween Adventure.”
    “Our goal this year has been to set a new standard for horror – to create an event that will haunt you forever,” said Jim Timon, senior vice president of entertainment for Universal Orlando Resort. “We will put you in the same environment as world-class horror icons, we will exploit every weakness we can find – and we will not let you go until we’re done with you.”
    EIGHT HAUNTED HOUSES
    A Nightmare on Elm Street: Dreamwalkers – Stepping through the door of 1428 Elm Street, this suburban residence will bring guests face-to-face with the nightmare man himself, Freddy Krueger. Trapped in a walking dream state, guests will join Freddy’s victims as they relive their most vicious nightmares.
    The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Flesh Wounds – Guests find themselves trapped inside the Hewitt family home. Terror awaits them at every corner as they realize they are hunted by chainsaw- wielding maniac Leatherface, and his family of freaks.
    Friday the 13th: Camp Blood – Visitors take a tour of the abandoned remains of Camp Crystal Lake – the slay grounds of Jason Voorhees. There has not been an incident here for years, and Jason has seemingly disappeared. However, under the bright moon there seems to be something moving in the woods...
    The Thing: Assimilation – This house celebrates the 25th Anniversary of John Carpenter’s horror/sci-fi classic with a sequel set 25 years after the incident at Outpost 31. Guests enter Outpost 3113, a research hub housing the government’s most classified projects. When a containment unit containing bio-hazardous evidence from Outpost 31 unexpectedly opens, someThing is let loose.
    Dead Silence: The Curse of Mary Shaw – Based on the Universal horror film, the theatre space of the vengeful Mary Shaw is brought to life. The tortured ghost of the evil ventriloquist searches for fresh victims to create the perfect doll while an army of sinister puppets terrify guests.
    Psychoscareapy: Home for the Holidays – Visions of sugarplums turn into horrific holiday nightmares for citizens living in Shadybrook Estates when a transport bus containing the most crazed residents of the now infamous local hospital overturns near their beloved neighborhood. Clawing their way out of the twisted wreckage, these crazed overachievers have come home for the holidays and their victims will hopefully be given the greatest gift of all…a quick death.
    Vampyr: Blood Bath – In the dead of night, creatures of the netherworld gather at Club Vampyr. Located inside an abandoned industrial building, Club Vampyr has everything one would need to paint the town red, blood red, that is.
    Jack’s Funhouse in Clown-O-Vision – Guests enter this Jack’d up funhouse that throws them laughing and screaming into an oversaturated world of color that appears to leap out at them. Winding twists and turns lead visitors on a seemingly unending maze featuring more crazed clowns than they could ever imagine. And before it’s all said and done…guests will know Jack!
    SHOWS INCLUDE:
    Jack’s Carnival Of Carnage – Join the clown master of the macabre and his assistants, Tiny and Chance, as they bring guests a terror-filled show. Hapless “contestants” take a chance and pick a card… Will they have the guts to survive Jack’s torturous, ultra-gory carnival games?
    Freak Show – Jack’s Carnival of Carnage just wouldn’t be complete without a freak show. Guests will witness the gut-wrenching entertainment of the Enigma – a tattooed performer whose body is a canvas of torture. The most amazing and ghastly national acts will come together with one goal – to make guests squirm with excitement and repulsion.
    Bill & Ted’s Excellent Halloween Adventure – Bill S Preston Esq and Ted Theodore Logan return with an especially excellent Halloween adventure featuring a who’s who of notorious celebrity guest stars.
    Halloween Horror Nights will run from September 28-29 through October 4-7, 11-14, 18-21, 24-28, and Oct.31-Nov. 3. Advance tickets and vacation packages are on sale now.
    Halloween Horror Nights is a special ticket event and is $64.95 plus tax. Florida residents can save up to $30 off the full admission price of Halloween Horror Nights 17 tickets. For more information on discounts and travel packages, or to purchase tickets, guests may call 407-224-5500 or visit the event’s website at www.halloweenhorrornights.com. Event tickets are also available at the front gate of the theme parks and select outlets such as Publix Supermarkets and Ticketmaster. Because of the event’s popularity, tickets are expected to sell out and should be purchased far in advance.

    Universal Orlando Resort (www.universalorlando.com). With Steven Spielberg as creative consultant, Universal Orlando has created the world’s most innovative theme park attractions based on pop culture’s most compelling films and stories.

    These are so far the officially confirmed houses, and only The Thing house's title is official...

    Clues
    Dead Silence

    When you click on the Theatre tent, you're presented with several wooden blocks, each with a different letter. If it wasn't already obvious, you're going to have to spell something. In this case, that something is someone's name. If you've seen the movie Dead Silence, you'll find a photo of this person on the JS map page. I've included his photo below. His name is the password.




    Psychoscarepy: Home for the Holidays

    When you click on the Snow Cone Booth, you're presented with a large set of keys. There are five keys that'll let you in, and which one(s) work are presented to you in a clever fashion.
    In the image below, you'll notice a brick that I've highlighted in green. The small dots on this brick are your hint as to which key to click on. In this case, you see two dots on top and three dots on the bottom. That means that the correct key to click is in the 2nd column and the 3rd row, as highlighted below.



    Each time you come to the page, the brick will display a different combination using that same row/column pattern. There are five different combinations in all, and if you click the wrong key on your first try, the brick will change to display a new combination, so make sure you pay attention.
    The Thing - Assimilation

    When you click on the "What Is It?" truck, you're presented with a keypad, and must enter a number combiation in order to continue. On the JS map page, there's a floppy disk. Click it and read the on screen prompts. Suddenly, there will be an error. This error is your answer.




    Texas Chainsaw Massacre

    When you click on the "Blair Meats" trailer, you see a chainsaw. Your mission: start it. This is by far the most difficult page to get into so far. Your only hint is a vague note on the JS map page. The important part being "FLIP PUMP CHOKE RIP KILL". So if you know anything about how to start a chainsaw, all you really need to do is figure out how many times to preform each task.





    To avoid confusion, the numbers on the above image represent the order of your clicks. You have to make a total of 9 clicks to get in. So start with one, and just follow the diagram. Hopefully that makes it clear.
    Friday the 13th

    When you click on the Knife Throwing Wheel, you're presented with a job application. In order to continue you have to figure out whose application this is, and fill in their correct information. On the JS map page, you'll see a map of Camp Crystal Lake. Click that map, and you'll be brought to a page with the "Blairstown Gazette". Read the front page story by clicking on the newspaper. You'll find almost all the information you need in there.


    (Click to read newspaper)





    Vampyr 2 (or 3...)

    "Burlesque After Dark" Page



    When you click on the "Blair Meats" trailer, you're presented with a cryptic set of circles, each with a seperate piece of a symbol. The goal here is to put the pieces together to form the correct symbol. What is that symbol? On the JS map page you'll see a stamp. Tada. Now all you have to do is figure out which direction the symbol needs to point in.





    Thanks to NickC of HorrorNights.be for the guide

    Re: Halloween Horror Nights 17: Carnival of Carnage

    Here is the password for the complicated chainsaw one:


    http://www.rctrevalutions.com/staff/...rnchainsaw.PNG

    So, the first one once,
    the second one twice,
    the third one one
    the fourth one three times
    the last one once

    then press kill that will get you into the second teaser for the TCM house.

    Re: Halloween Horror Nights 17: Carnival of Carnage

    thank you very much sad i wished other Haunted themed sites had cool puzzles like the HHN but its weird why isnt HHN hollywood doing something like this i was a monster there B4 many yrs ago and gone to another haunted place but for USH starting this back in the day why is orlando the major one
    all i have to say HHN Hollywood has great talent and the area im sadend that its only a 10 night gig and toned down than the HHN orlando with its 20 + night gig .... HHN Hollywood could be a serious contention to Knotts scary farms haunt if they had the same force and budget as in orlando

    It's hard to decipher what you're saying since it's all a huge run-on sentence with zero grammar, but if you were asking about the events themselves here, Orlando's HHN is "the major one" because it's the original HHN and it's never skipped a year of operation. Therefore it has resources, financial backing and a fanbase that USH lacks. As for the website, the masterminds behind HHN Orlando's detailed websites (and the rest of the event for that matter) are employees native to Universal Orlando. USH isn't really their concern. This is why Hollywood's website doesn't get the same treatment.

    ^ Making us read such a mess is more rude than what I said.

    Re: Halloween Horror Nights 17: Carnival of Carnage

    Monsters, monsters, please! Let's keep it civil. After all, we're chatting about things we love! Certainly it's no fun to read a sloppy post, but give sumostar a chance to express himself. If we spent time trying to figure out who's-ruder-than-who on the 'net, we'd never be able to talk about anything else!

    I'd say a couple of factors contribute to USH's HHN being so much smaller than USO's:
    First, Knott's has a 30 year head start. USH isn't going to sink huge resources into their party unless/until they can viably compete with the sold-out Knott's nights.

    Second, they had trouble getting it off the ground because an employee died the first time they tried it (in 1986). I'm not sure when they started the current annual run, but there was no way they were going to try again in the late 80's, when Knott's was already going strong.

    Third (IMO), Universal tries to play off their "classic" characters too much - Frankenstein, Dracula, the Wolf Man, and the Mummy are just NOT scary. Maybe this year the Jason/Freddy/Mary Shaw thing will work better for them. (Didn't they do a Rob Zombie maze a couple of years ago? How was that?)

    Finally, I think the design of the park is awful. It worked well in the 60's thru the 80's, but as the amusement park encroached onto the movie lot, the two halves are just too far apart. I mean, what do you do with the giant escalators? Haunt them? Leave them as boring as they are in the daytime, a huge stumbling block against fun? (I haven't been during HHN, so I don't know what they do with the "starway"...)

    That's my two cents. Gotta go! (Oh, crud - that's a misspelling AND poor grammar...)

    last year was their first year after closing the event in 2000

    That Rob Zombie maze was in 2000, based on and called House of 1000 Corpses..and it was amazing, along with the Buffy the Vampire Slayer maze they had that year

    nothing, its a long boring trip that detracts from the horror they try to convey..imho of course

    Re: Halloween Horror Nights 17: Carnival of Carnage

    So to recap -
    a Blade-like Vampire rave house (The Burlesque tent on the Carnival screen and the Greenwich stop on the map)

    A "Dead Silence" house (the Theatre tent and the Raven's Fair stop)

    A "Thing" house (the What Is It Truck and the Antarctica stop)

    A "Texas Chainsaw" house (the Blair Meats truck and the Travis County stop)

    A Bill n Ted show ("See The Time Machine" banner at the Carnival and the San Dimas stop)

    A Freakshow feat "The Enigma" (The tattooed man banner and the Gibsonton stop)

    Something to do with Friday the 13th (the Blairstown stop)

    That leaves details for "Nightmare On Elm Street" and also Coney Island stop
    (could this be connected to the Carnival FunHouse? And is it the rumoured 3-D Funhouse that the colour disc would seem to support?)

    "Rocky Horror" must be the Transylvania part of the map.

    Where does the "Silent Night, Psychotic Night" fit in? Any clues on the map?

    Re: Halloween Horror Nights 17: Carnival of Carnage

    At the amazing knife wielding wonder the application info should be as follows...

    Name: first- Pamela last- Voorhees

    Address: city- Blairstown state- New Jersey

    Position Sought: Cook

    Then hit apply

    BTW... its also important to note that you do need to capitalize the first letter of every word or it will not work... that drove me crazy for a little while until I figured that part of it out

    As for the names, no title has been confirmed except for The Thing - Assimilation. Lance at Screamscape has a RECORD of being very very wrong with this year's event.
