Throwback Thursday! Is there any Chance you remember the "20 Penny Circus: Fully Exposed" show from HHN 22? It was held in the former Beetlejuice theater (now demolished) and featured two argumentative clowns performing illusions, sideshow acts, and escapism. The show also included their lovely assistant, as well as "The Naked Mentalist." #hhnorlando #HHNYearbook #UniversalOrlando #HHN #HalloweenHorrorNights #Tbt #HHN22 #20PennyCircus #HalloweenHorrorNights22 #clowns #UniversalStudiosFlorida #universalmoments

Florida’s first version of Halloween Horror Nights, then known as “Fright Nights,” only ran for three nights in October. The marketing materials may have featured Beetlejuice, but the event Icons consisted of the main Universal Monsters: Dracula, Frankenstein’s Monster, the Bride of Frankenstein, the Wolf Man, the Mummy and the Creature from the Black Lagoon (aka Gill-Man) [source].
