Warn the authorities and crank up The Dickies! The Killer Klowns from Outer Space have invaded Halloween Horror Nights 2022, bringing with them a variety of wacky treats at Jojo’s Ice Cream!
To see our video review of this restaurant and more Halloween Horror Nights dishes, watch the video below. And keep scrolling for more pictures and our full review.
The Lower Lot stand has overtaken Studio Scoop for the season and is open to guests during the day and Halloween Horror Nights.
Of course, we managed to put our fears of becoming an intergalactic snack on hold just long enough to try out some of the new options!
Killer Kone – $9.99
Soft strawberry strudel served with strawberry sauce, black sugar crystals and a maraschino cherry in a waffle cone bowl
This was the best on the menu, and even that wasn’t fantastic. The strawberry strudel soft serve is just vanilla with some strawberry syrup laced throughout and then topped with more strawberry sauce. It was ok as far as a cup of soft serve goes, but this definitely wasn’t the most appealing sundae we’ve had, either in taste or presentation.
Otherwise, for the Halloween Horror Nights specials, this one was at least the best of the bunch because you can’t get too excited eating an ice cream cone.
Popcorn Shake – $12.00
Vanilla shake with colored popcorn and watermelon cotton candy in a mug with a strawberry topping
This one was interesting in that the popcorn coating started to dissipate in the shake, but wasn’t really worth much more than a plain vanilla shake.
The slight bit of popcorn flavor that spills over into the mundane, lackluster vanilla shake is a novelty, but not as good.
This is something where we walk away from it and tell our friends that we don’t have a popcorn-flavored shake because we enjoyed it, just because of the weirdness of the idea. Even with a hint of popcorn in the shake, it was rather plain overall.
Acid Pie Shake – $12.00
Vanilla shake with graham crackers, green sugar pearls, whipped topping and a maraschino cherry
This was the one we had the highest hopes for, and also the one that crushed those hopes the hardest. The Acid Pie is a direct connection to the Killer Klowns from Outer Space movie and it was also the only real good thing that came out of the Killer BBQ from Outer Space dining tent across the street.
But this shake was just a simple vanilla shake with chocolate pearls on top and a single graham cracker slid inside. It’s not even a good vanilla shake. It was watery and skimped on the vanilla flavor, opting instead for a sweetened milk flavor that was too runny to begin with. It was like a shake you would get from a fast food restaurant but not one of the better chains.
The chocolate pearls listed as green pearls on the menu weren’t even green. Not that it matters, because green or brown, a dash of chocolate pearls doesn’t save this mind-blowing vanilla shake.
Halloween Horror Nights Sugar Cookie – $4.99
This is just a simple sugar cookie, as you’d expect. It’s instagrammable, with the event’s logo (or optionally a Sugar Skull variant) on the top in printed food coloring and icing. The frosting helps add some extra sweetness to the cookie, but overall it’s rather plain.
The amusement park sugar cookie is a well-known commodity—not great, not terrible. It’s just doing its job as a cookie and doesn’t excite anyone. This cookie is no exception.
