Fans petition to save Bill and Ted at Halloween Horror Nights Orlando

Fans petition to save Bill and Ted at Halloween Horror Nights Orlando

Bill and Ted have gone back to 1991, where they will become the Great Ones that we so desperately need. However, a new petition started by fans of Halloween Horror Nights wants to bring them back to 2018 for more shows.

The petition started on Change.org was started shortly after the last ever show of the Halloween Horror Nights staple. The petition is calling for the return of the show to all future HHN events.

The Bill and Ted Excellent Adventure show has been a staple of Halloween Horror Nights! Not only has the show grown a fan base of thousands of people, but has created traditions, memories, reunions, laughter, and much more! Bill and Ted has also provided in a sense a “cool down” or desensitizing atmosphere for many. The body produces adrenaline when we get scared, henceforth the human mind and body becomes hypervigilant; the Bill and Ted show provides an escape from the adrenaline and hypervigilance.

Society is always changing; for the good and the bad; Vegas for example, Bill and Ted was able to touch upon it that not only showed tribute to the lives taken, but helps make light of the dark; also while refreshingly being the one true redeeming stab at pop culture from year to year. The signatures speak for themselves for the fan base and income brought in for the Bill and Ted show!

While we love Bill and Ted as much as the next guy, and would love to see it return, it’s worth noting that these types of petitions rarely work for theme park attractions. Once the parks decide to end a show or close an attraction, it’s usually a done deal.

Still, there are over 1,200 signatures at the time of publishing, as well as a Facebook group and planned meet ups at the parks.

What do you think? Should Bill and Ted be saved to entertain us for all time, or should they be free to return to 1991 and fulfill their destinies?

    The passion that the fans have for this show is truly amazing — just look at the Facebook group mentioned, or ask the thousands who stood in line all day to see the final show. While it’s true that these types of petitions rarely work for Theme Park attractions, this is a seasonal show, not a year-round attraction that requires valuable real estate. The revenue brought in by this show far exceeds the costs of keeping it. Let’s hope Universal listens to the fans and keeps this show alive for years to come!

    Unless you work in the bookkeeping end of Universal, you have no way of knowing what the revenue brought in by the show actually is. The are few merchandising opportunities with it, and the show brings so much controversy. The passion of the fans will not be answered unless they stop going to the event…which let’s face it, they won’t do. Sure, you might have a few that stop going, but no matter how much they complain and bitch, they still go. If ticket sales start declining, then you’ll see them come back.
