Halloween Horror Nights XI came soon after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the US. Universal hurried to modify the event to reflect the nation's mood at that time. Many changes were made, from house titles to the removal of blood. One of the most notable changes would be the event's original icon - Eddie.

Eddie was a chainsaw-wielding, facemask-wearing maniac who had an elaborate back story. Eddie was subtly replaced by the return of the previous years' icon Jack the Clown - with taglines such as "Jack's Back" and "There's no more clowning around."

In addition to the icon change, anything graphic or violent was scrapped from the event. There would be no blood or any sort of gore. Attraction names were softened to be more appropriate for the time.

Some original titles included:

"Bloodbath Underground" which became "Ooze Zone"

"Terror Land" which became "Scary Tales"

"Slasher Alley" which became "Nightmare Alley"

"The Festival of the Dead Parade" which became "Nightmares on Parade"

"Deadly D'illusions" which became "Dangerous D'illusions."

This is the original pamphlet showing the pre-September 11th attraction names & artwork.
