So yes...I'm gonna keep doing HHN. As long as people love it and I love creating it. So what's next? Its already happening.Stay tuned #carny— Horror Nights (@HorrorNights) December 4, 2015
Murdy long has acknowledged that when he agreed to help revive the event at Universal's original park for the 2006 season, he did so with the intention that it would be for a set number of years. Earlier this year, he confirmed that the number was 10, and that he was considering moving on from Halloween Horror Nights after this year's event.
Murdy explained his decision to stick with HHN in a series of tweets:
There are lots of closing night traditions. I always watch the final chainsaw chase out at the end of the night then lead the performers out. We always stop in the middle of the park before exiting, raise all the chainsaws and go crazy! Its an incredible moment. Absolute chaos! This year a fan wanted to hand me a card right before we did that moment. It was hard to talk obviously so an employee took it for her... The employee gave it to me, stuck it in my pocket and then headed out the next day for Ireland...didn't find it/read it till I got back... It was handwritten by a mother of a family...just wanted to say thank you for how much HHN means to her and her husband and kids... I've met so many people like that over the last 10 years and continue to meet them. Its clear how much this event means to them... It made me think..."if you're lucky enough to get to do something you love that has that kind of effect on people...how can you leave it!"
