This was so much fun. Not as scary as I had hoped for but definitely fun. However, if you scare easily you may chicken out.

This attraction was a bit different than others of its kind that I've attended but not as scary as I thought it would be. I was smiling the whole time (as evidenced by the photos taken of my friends and I while we proceeded through the haunted house). However, while waiting in line, a group ahead of us chickened out...

If you're afraid of the dark, this "haunted house" will def scare you. Basically you're put in a hallway that's pitch black and you follow red lights to lead you through the house. Noises and random actors make noises like growling, laughing, mimic you're words and lots of banging. Def heart racing experience as you can't see a thing but... More

Purchased combo pack with Ripley's, Ripley's theatre, and Wax Museum. Family was least impressed with Fear Factory. After nearly an hour wait on a Saturday night in October, we were expecting a bit more out of the experience. Other than a series of dark hallways and one area where you are 'compressed' by the walls, there wasn't a lot to... More

I went with my husband and we both love horror movies so I know it will be fun! It is pitch black and the red dots is arranged to give you the impression that you are either going up or down. I was prepared for loud bangs and screams which it happened and it was still jumpy. The part where... More

While I found it more disorienting than frightening, my husband and I both had racing hearts by the time we reached the exit. If you like being startled, definitely check it out.

Went to this attraction while in Niagara Falls and left very disappointed. It's advertised to be the best haunted house in NF on tripadvisor and even claims that over 100,000 people have chickened out. All you do is walk in the dark following a red light listening to soundeffects. If this is the scariest NF has to offer, don't waste... More

My hubby and I attempted this place today and totally chickened out! And we're no shrinking violets either...we both love horror flicks and all things spooky and scary. We prob made it less than halfway through before we had to be let out. I can handle pitch black, loud noises, scary sounds, even things reaching out and grabbing you. I... More

Our friends had been here the previous day and convinced us we had to go, too. I confess I wasn't expecting much, but since it was pretty affordable, we gave it a try. At the reception you can already see the hilarious pictures of people screaming. When we were on the line to get in, we got so lucky because... More

We were really excited to try out the Nightmares Fear Factory haunted house in Niagara Falls, even despite the total "cheese-factor" quality of this attraction. We went on a Saturday night around 10pm, which appears to be their peak hour, and we waited for about an hour to get in (this is due to the fact that you only go... More
