"Hell Valley" was an alternate name for Hill Valley in 1985A. The greeting sign was defaced with spray paint and crudely altered to this name, as well as having been riddled with bullet holes and knocked to the ground.
Marty also likened being in 1985A to Hell. Ironically, the center of this particular hell was called "Paradise".
