This is something that I really enjoyed, as a 23 year old guy, my wife and I were packing it fairly hard. I would recommend sticking out out, don't chicken out, there are some terrifying parts and specific to your fears. Best haunted house I've been to.

Thank Luke P

I was so scared and was within a few seconds of "Chickening out" when we burst out of the exit screaming. The staff at the front were really friendly and nice and the actors inside took their job really seriously - making the scares tailor-made for you. There is lots of contact (touching your ears, holding you back, grabbing you legs and arms) which is all in good fun but be aware if you can't handle it. I also would not recommend it for children as it is VERY scary and there are no refunds if you have to leave.
The photos of you scared are also very good if you want to buy them.

Hi Dania R, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review here on Trip Advisor. We are so pleased you enjoyed your visit to us - and that you found us VERY scary!! We are definitely not a children's attraction and do recommend to parents that only 15 year olds and over come through our Haunted Hallways. We were especially pleased to read your comments about our actors and also our front-of-house staff - thank you, your feedback means a lot to us and I will pass your comments on to them. Happy travels and best wishes from the Team here in Queenstown

Went with a crowd of Queenstown locals to try something a bit different from the Queenstown norm.... What a unique attraction.... big guys pushing not to be in certain places in the line... you'll either be laughing, or screaming, or a weird combination of both, but definitely give this a try for something unique to do, right in the centre of town.

I have been to a few haunted houses, cornfields and wool sheds, and this was the best!! I have quite literally never been more terrified in my life!! My heart raced the whole time (it felt like I'd run a marathon by the end!), my legs were shaking and even as I write this hours later, my throat is still sore from all the screaming. The 20mins it took us felt like hours!! Thought it was particularly creepy/effective when the actors picked up on some of the names of people in our group and would whisper/scream/cackle them throughout the walk. Really freaky!! I'll probably have nightmares tonight. Would definitely recommend this to people coming to queenstown! Thanks fear factory for the awesome experience. P.S. definitely have a look at and buy your photos at the end. So hilarious!
