Universal Orlando has officially announced that this year’s Icon for Halloween Horror Nights 26 will be Chance the Clown, along with releasing more details on what to expect at this year’s event – including prices for tickets.

Chance FullChance has been known as the twisted right-hand woman of Halloween Horror Nights Icon, Jack the Clown; and was featured last year at Halloween Horror Nights 25 as part of Jack’s show “The Carnage Returns”. This year, Chance returns and will feature two very distinct states of mind – as well as two distinct looks.

Chance PatientAccording to Universal:

With the “Jack in the Box” on an evidence shelf somewhere waiting for someone to turn the crank once more, Chance bides her time within her cell.

But this is not a tragedy for her. This prison is a toy box. It’s within the confines of her cell that she enters her horrific “theatre of the mind”. She knows that the acts committed inside her mind will manifest in the real.

This year, Chance will step into the spotlight as the star of the nation’s best Halloween event. Universal Studios Florida will become her stage . This year, the event will feature nine all-new haunted houses, scare zones and live; with Chance getting her very own haunted house and scare zone.

Houses based on The Walking Dead, The Exorcist, and Texas Chain Saw Massacre will also be featured this year.
