This is an experience I will never forget. Before entering Fear Factory I thought it would just be a cheesy haunted house with a few jump scares in it. What was offered was a very unique and terrifying ordeal. The actors are incredible at what they do, they seem to be very passionate and really know how to scare the... More

This place is really friggin cool, crazy & scary! I didn't think I would be scared but boy was I wrong! I was so exhausted at the end from all the screaming! I am not 100% sure if I would be brave enough to do it again, but I would highly recommend doing it if you have not before!!

This was great fun and very well done -we both jumped out of our skins several times. The only disappointment was the photos. Although we were able to download 8 scenes, it is just the same photo in each one.

Even if you have done a few haunted house/corn evil type attractions before, you totally need to do this one! My husband let out a few squeaks, and we have done a few haunted attractions in the US which didn't scare him as much. Its different to your average haunted house type thing, try it!

if you want a good scare and laugh at the same time. Fear Factory is a must. Im a horror fanatic and thought i would breeze through...well can i say petrified from the very first minute. Hilarious seeing the fear on my face in the photos taken by the Fear Factory where priceless.
