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.
