Went with my husband as a Father's Day gift from our children. It definitely was scary and I made my husband go in front we laughed and screamed and not knowing what was round each corner was a bit scary. if you get time to do it is a must and also the staff were great and friendly.

My bf and I had a laugh before going in as we thought it couldn't possibly be that scary. Man, we were wrong. I didn't know whether to laugh, scream or cry. Definitely recommend it to anyone going through Queenstown. Friendly staff and impressive setup.

Went with my partner and some friends. Holy @$#! It was amazing - we were petrified but having fun at the same time. Something you have to do if you're in Queenstown! Great staff and atmosphere, definitely what people say it's cracked up to be. Just remember to go to the toilet first!

Hi xhybridfairyx, Haha classic - we loved reading your review! ...and yes we agree, it's usually best to go to the loo first before you experience Fear Factory Queenstown - otherwise you never know what might happen!! So pleased you had a great time with us. Happy onward travels and warm ghostly wishes from our Team More

The Fear Factory was good fun. If you like haunted houses and scary movies, then you will like this place. If you scare easily, you might not like it and perhaps you might end up on their chicken list.

Loved this! by far my favourite thing to do in Queenstown. I thought it would be silly but was so wrong. We took our kids there this time but unfortunately my girl was so scared she shouted chicken. But next time they keen to try it again! Thankyou guys you rock!

We went through this and had an awesome time, it was a lot scarier than I expected! I get scared easily normally so this really was terrifying but also really fun. Best haunted house I've been too!
