Halloween Horror Nights III was marketed as the 3rd Annual Universal Studios Florida Halloween Horror Nights and was held for five nights. Creators for HHN 1993 brought in consultants, the Elm Street Hauntreprenuers of Irving, Texas, who recommended Universal concentrate more on startling people than grossing them out. Halloween Horror Nights III was also the first year of three different mazes, two with brand new concepts.
