“A must do!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

Easily one of the best things to do in Queenstown! Definitely not for under 15s! I found it was just the right amount of scary.

You can call out 'chicken' it any time and they will take you out. We made it to the end but only just. It was awesome!

The staff were really good. I don't want to say too much about it as I don't want to ruin it for you but it took at good 20-30 minutes to do the whole thing.

You let them know at the start what scares you the most and they theme your experience around that.

If you are brave enough it is a must do.

Don't join the chicken list!

“Scary as!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2014

Really fun and inexpensive way to entertain for an hour, right in the centre of town. Great fun for all ages. Not too pricey. Not what you'd expect. Really, really scary. And changes frequently, so go again!

It is worth a visit eventhough 70% will chicken out!!!
No matter if u are in a group or alone, this is a different scary place the norm that u visit elsewhere

“For the faint hearted don't do it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2014

Can't give away too much as it would ruin your experience. Just put it this way the take a tally of those who chicken out and don't finish it! 2,600 just from this year have made it to the total. Count me in :( not for young children.
