Decided on a whim to visit the haunted house and we were thrilled with the experience! Scariest fun we've ever had, a must do when in Queenstown for something a little different.

It's nice if you have too much time left in Queenstown. If you want to have a great experience just go with it and don't think about how this is not real.

Go figure Now for this attraction we took three daughters ages 10, 13, 15. The two youngest screamed so much they lost their voices by the end. As a result... More

My friends and I weren't even aware of the place before we came to Queenstown and now I'm glad that I can say that I've walked through the red door. It is not only a thing that you definitely should do in Qtown, whether you're a horror enthusiast or just want to kill half an hour, but also it gives... More

I really love horror and ghost tours, but was not expecting what we got at the Fear Factory! I was genuinely freaked out at some points, but it was all in a really fun way. This was quite different to similar attractions I have been to in other countries, which was refreshing. It's quite pricey, but we thoroughly enjoyed the... More

Wow,Very scary horror movie stuff!!Excellent concept that is very well done!!Using a "safe"word you can opt out when the fright becomes too much and you will be led out "unscathed,but then your picture gets put on the "wuss" wall!!One of the best things to do in Queenstown.
