Hilarious Reactions From Inside One Of The World’s Scariest Haunted Houses
Everyone who opts out is added to the "Chicken List".
Halloween may be a uniquely American holiday, but the compulsion to subject ourselves to the horror of haunted houses is universal. So, in honour of the world’s spookiest holidays, we peeked inside one of the world’s scariest attractions – and the results are surprisingly hilarious.
Situated in an old coffin factory, Nightmares Fear Factory in Niagara Falls, Ontario, is regularly touted one of the world’s scariest haunted houses – and they’ve got the photographic evidence to prove it.
According to local legend, the building was formerly owned by Abraham Mortimer, an eccentric coffin-maker who was tormented by young hooligans, until a prank gone wrong saw him crushed by a stack of falling coffins. But, after Mortimer’s funeral, his coffin was found unearthed and empty.
It’s said he still roams the halls of Nightmares Fear Factory. Whether or not you believe that to be true, there are plenty of manmade surprises lurking for those brave enough to take it on.
Nightmares managers say that, while thousands of punters pass through the attraction every year, almost 154,000 have chickened out in the years since it opened. The whole experiences takes around 15 minutes (though we’re sure it feels like a lifetime) and those who want out simply need to shout “nightmares”.
Everyone who opts out is unceremoniously added to the “Chicken List”.
We wish we could tell you what to expect, bosses at Nightmares switch the setting up four times per year in a bid to keep everyone guessing.
If you’re still keen to give it a crack, pre-booked tickets will set you back CA$14.95 (AU$16) per person. Good luck – you’re gonna need it.
