A new video found on YouTube (leaked?) has revealed that Jack the Clown, the ringmaster of horror that has plagued Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights for years, will return to this year’s event as part of its 30th anniversary.
UPDATE – 06/17/21: It’s true, Jack is back! Universal Orlando has officially announced that Jack the Clown will return for Halloween Horror Nights’ 30th anniversary. Check out the previously-leaked reveal, now uploaded to Universal’s official YouTube channel, below:
The video showcases a wall of surveillance televisions featuring footage of Jack, before revealing that, to mark Halloween Horror Nights’ 30th year, “Jack is back!”
The sinister voiceover promises that Jack will be “everywhere,” be it “in a haunted house, in the dark when you least expect,” and even in your nightmares. Here’s the video from a U.K. based ticket seller site:
Universal Orlando has yet to announce officially that Jack the Clown will return to the event, though eagle-eyed fans noticed that the official Halloween Horror Nights Twitter shared and promptly deleted tweets minutes after the leak was discovered.
So should we believe it, or not? We expect an official announcement from Universal Orlando sometime this week. We have reached out to them for comment, but haven’t received an answer yet.
Halloween Horror Nights returns to Universal Orlando on Sept. 3, 2021, and will run on select nights through Oct. 31. To learn more, visit HalloweenHorrorNights.com/Orlando.
