We had a guy leading our pack, and he screamed like a girl. Very thrilling and you never know what is coming next. If you think this is for weaklings, think again - nearly 1500 people have chickened out part way through.

I went through the "Fear Factory" with my girlfriend and some friends. I was unsure what to expect but as soon as I entered the building I was very impressed by the decorations ect surrounding the reception. After a quick briefing we were sent through the "red door" where the fun really begins! Very well done and incredibly scary! Great to do something different and such good value compared to other attractions in Queenstown. Plus the photos at the end are hilarious! Look at the fear factory website for pictures

My family and I went here late October. I wasn't expecting to be very scary (as a 20 year old I'm not usually scared of these things), but this was terrifying. I was hesitant going on this because I thought it was a kids attraction, but boy I was wrong! The best haunted house I've ever been in. Would definitely recommend. The photos we brought are priceless.

My best friend and I went through on Friday afternoon, so so scary! My friend really didn't want to go, was only going because I wanted to and I think I came out more scared than she did! Scariest thing I think I have ever done! Really good value for money, all of the workers did a terrific job :) I suggest going at the front of your group, absolutely terrifying! Still on my mind 2 days later. Will be recommending to everyone I know :)
