Midway of the Bizarre was a long-running scarezone in Universal Studios' Halloween Horror Nights, showing up every year from 1995 to 1999, as well as one more reappearance in 2001. It was the first and last scarezone to be located in Amity. The premise of the scarezone was a carnival, with scareactors portraying carnival misfits.
This scarezone provided examples of:
- Circus of Fear: It was a carnival rather than a circus, but it's the same basic principle.
- Contortionist: In 1999, one of the performers was a tall contortionist fitting himself into a 3x3x3 cube and remaining in there for some time.
- Creepy Circus Music: This was a guarantee every year.
- Monster Clown: As you might expect from a scarezone themed around a carnival, these were a common sight.
