It’s haunted house season. Here in Orlando, FL, Universal Studios has made a reputation for hosting some of the best every year at their Halloween Horror Nights celebration, but it looks like there’s one haunted house so scary that the owners are betting no one will make it through to the end.
It’s called McKamey Manor and it’s the world’s most mysterious and scary haunted house. In fact, the creator of the house is so sure you won’t finish that he’s offering a $20,000 prize to anyone who makes it through. From the video below of everyone who has tapped out, it does look like a pretty brutal experience. Several of the people in the video are filmed while blindfolded with duct tape or buried up to their neck in mud.
The experience is so traumatic that some people have even tried to sue the creator, believing that things were done to them during their trip. However all haunted house tours are filmed and the owner has been able to prove that anything felt by the contestants happened entirely in their own minds.
If you think you’ve got what it takes to tackle McKamey Manor, don’t count your chickens just yet. Before you go, you have to meet the following qualifications:
- Be 21 years old or older, or 18-20 with parents approval
- Completed “Sports Physical” and doctor’s letter stating you are physically and mentally cleared
- Pass a background check provided by McKamey Manor
- Be screened via Facebook, Facetime or phone
- Proof of medical insurance
- Sign a detailed 40-page waiver
- Pass a portable drug test on the day of the show
In all honesty, the video below makes us think this isn’t as much a haunted house as much as it’s a torture house. People are getting their eyes duct-taped shut, they are buried up to their neck and having water poured over their mouths. Some of the contestants even appear in the video with more than a dozen clothespins attached to their lips, nose, ears, and eyebrows. Is this an attraction or a human rights violation?
