According to Universal Orlando, Jack made his first appearance back at the event in 2000. He has then gone on to become one of the most beloved original characters at the event, making numerous reappearances throughout the years. His origins are one of horror and pure nightmare fuel.
Jack Schmidt was a carnival performer who was part of a circus troupe led by a gentleman named Dr. Oddfellow. Turns out Jack was a clown with murderous tendencies (shocker), which typically doesn’t bode well for a show that is supposed to make families laugh. Jack confided in Oddfellow about his heinous actions and — long story short — Oddfellow betrayed Jack, murdered him, and kept his body inside a Jack in the Box for years until he was later accidentally released, unleashing something even more evil and diabolically powerful. He exacted vengeance on Oddfellow and then became the ringmaster of his own traveling circus, Carnival of Carnage.
Halloween Horror Nights is currently celebrating its 30th anniversary event through October 31. Guests who are interested in attending can buy tickets on the official website or at the ticket booths located at the front of the parks. In typical HHN fashion, the event features numerous haunted houses, scare zones, and new original shows for this year.
Some highlights of this year’s event includes Beetlejuice, Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House, Texas Chainsaw Massacre and of course: HHN Icons, which includes appearances from Jack & Chance. There are still a couple of weeks left for this year’s event, for anyone looking for a spooky and Halloween filled good time! As always, the event is not recommended for anyone under the age of 13.
