McKamey-Manor-Torture-Haunted-House-Will-Pay-You-20K

That’s right. $20K in your pocket… if you finish. To date, no one has finished. And it’s not some quick walkthrough where you can close your eyes through most of it while holding hands with your friend. This one is 8-10 hours long, and you go solo. Sans friends, sans hope, sans adult diaper. The brainchild of ex-Navy man, Russ McKamey, the Manor has been dubbed the most frightening haunted house ever made. Rather than just scare you with fake blood and haunting makeup, visitors go through what can only be characterized as hours of extreme fear. You must read and sign a 40-page waiver, a Facebook screening, and get a rigorous athlete’s physical to see if your heart (and mind) can handle it. The perception of experiencing a near-drowning, being fed undesirable things, getting doused in spiders/roaches, and all manner of fear-inducing situations has led to 911 calls, lawsuits, etc. But McKamey films all of it, evidence that perception and reality aren’t always the same. He asks for some dog treats as the entrance fee, nothing more. The current waiting list amounts to 27,000 people. Good luck to them.

Moon-Puzzle-IF2

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
