This Haunted House Will Pay You $20K If You Make It to the End (But Honestly, You Won't)

You need to sign a 40-page waiver, make up a safe word, and get a doctor’s note to even get through the doors.

You really don’t want to do this.

If you haven’t yet heard about McKamey Manor in Summertown, Tennessee then you might want to turn back now, because the details will chill you to your very core.

If you're curious about what it entails, watch the video below.

Warning: This is graphic!

The requirements alone are enough to send you packing. You’ll need to check off all of the following boxes:

  • Be 21 and above, or 18-20 with parents approval.
  • Completed “Sports Physical” and doctors letter stating you are physically and mentally cleared.
  • Pass a background check.
  • 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.

The physical cost is cheap—all Russ asks for is a 50-pound bag of dog food that he donates to an animal shelter. But the emotional stakes are incredibly high.

Some people are tasked with eating cockroaches, being buried alive, fighting to survive Saw- like contraptions, and more. The Nashville Scene also mentions eels, tasers, paintball guns, and whips. Fun!

This Terrifying Haunted House Will Give You $20,000 If You Can Make It to the End — but No One Ever Has (Video)

scary haunted house that pays you to finish

McKamey Manor in Summertown, Tennessee may lay claim to being the world’s scariest haunted house. It’s so scary that no one has ever completed it — but if you do, you’ll win $20,000.

All it costs to enter is a bag of dog food. Russ McKamey, the owner and mastermind behind the manor, has five dogs to feed.

The haunted house has several eye-popping preconditions. Contestants who want to enter must get a letter from their doctor asserting they are physically and mentally fit, and there’s a drug test day-of. Signing the 40-page contract alone takes three to four hours. Oh, and you have to have medical insurance because you’ll probably get hurt.

“I’m a very straight laced conservative guy, but here I run this crazy haunted house that people think is this torture factory, fetish factory,” McKamey told local news WFLA. “All of these things that it’s not, but people believe that based upon the films that I have made.”

McKamey concocts each “show” for every individual contestant who visits, cooking up particular stunts and tasks suited to their particular fears. It’s been featured on the Netflix show Dark Tourism and Haunters: The Art of the Scare .

McKamey is adamant that nothing weird goes on in the manor, despite a report from The Guardian that said visitors may be “bound, masked and held under water, slapped and stomped on, and compelled to eat your own vomit” during the eight-hour tour — if they last that long. McKamey insists it’s a more of a “mental game” between him and contestants, which he wins using hypnosis.

Each contestant’s entire journey through the manor is filmed, which McKamey says is to protect himself against false accusations.

“When I use the hypnosis I can put you in a kitty pool with a couple inches of water and tell you there’s a great white shark in there, and you’re gonna think there’s a shark in there,” he told WFLA . “And so, when you have that kind of power over people, and have them do and see things that you want them to see, then they can leave here thinking it really happened, and they’ll go to the authorities and say, ‘oh, whatever,’ and I have to come back and show the footage and say, ‘it didn’t go that way at all.'"

There’s also a required two-hour video you must watch if you think other people are sissies and you’re made of stronger stuff. “And Then There Were None” is one hour and 48 minutes of people giving up the haunted house, telling the camera and future visitors “you really don’t want to do this.”

If you think you’ve got what it takes, you can contact McKamey online to set up your own terrifying tour. For something a little less terrifying, here are houses with haunted pasts you can visit without signing away your life.

This Tennessee Haunted House Will Pay You $20,000 If You Make It Through Without Quitting

scary haunted house that pays you to finish

Before you get too excited, know that no one has successfully made it through the manor in over 2 years.

The manor also requires visitors to complete a 40-page waver, a physical exam, and even have a doctor’s note with them before they are allowed to enter.

Several clips from previous guests are included in the following film that visitors are required to see before entering:

In addition to watching the above video, the McKamey Manor also requires that potential visitors:

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

Insider Today

The controversial McKamey Manor in Summertown, Tennessee — once described by its owner as a "survival horror boot camp" — is offering $20,000 to anyone brave enough to survive its new horror experience.

Russ McKamey has long fielded concerns over the safety of the attraction.

In an interview with The Guardian in 2015 , McKamey admitted that a visitor once had a heart attack.

Accounts from those who have attempted the tour have also detailed the horrific experience the Manor has in store.

A visitor named Amy Milligan told the San Diego Union-Tribune in 2015 that she was slapped and waterboarded at its former location in San Diego — and in a reader poll, 70% of people said they thought the experience was "too extreme."

Meanwhile, visitor Laura Hertz Brotherton told Nashville Scene : "I still have scars of everything they did to me. I was repeatedly hit in my face, over and over and over again. Like, open-handed, as hard as a man could hit a woman in her face."

She added that she was forced, like all other visitors, to film an "exit video" before she could quit, and that McKamey told her he would sue her if she didn't say good things about the Manor.

Despite all of this, McKamey is still encouraging thrill-seekers to join the thousands-long waiting list — and is even offering a financial reward.

A video released on Tuesday announcing the attraction's "Desolation" tour promises "a new level of extreme horror" to those with the guts to sign up.

Warning: Even the video isn't for the faint-hearted.

McKamey told Insider he was offering $20,000 to whoever makes it all the way through the new tour, but he warned that nobody ever has.

Visitors must sign a 40-page waiver

All visitors must meet the manor's entrance requirements : They must be "physically and mentally cleared" by a doctor, pass a background check, and sign a detailed 40-page waiver.

The entire experience is also filmed by McKamey, who told WFLA this week that "nobody's even made it to the starting clock with this new show."

"With the new mental game, it's much more difficult," he said.

A nearly two-hour video posted on the manor's YouTube channel in August says it shows "every contestant who has ever attempted" the tour since July 2017.

"Legally, anyone desiring to participate in the MM experience called 'DESOLATION,' must watch this entire movie for their safety," the video's description says.

The tour is free— McKamey offers only dog food as payment — but the manor offers a stark warning to all would-be visitors: "Each tour will be different based upon your personal fears, and can last up to 10 HOURS. Each guest will be mentally and physically challenged until you reach your personal breaking point." It adds that "you will be tested to your very core."

McKamey and his home have garnered national and international attention over the years. McKamey Manor has been described as one of America's scariest houses, with The Sun , The Guardian , and Ladbible all reporting on the terrifying experiences on offer.

Nashville Scene gave an in-depth report of what a visit to the Manor is like, calling it "torture on demand."

The Manor previously existed in San Diego, but McKamey was forced to move.

However, Lawrence County Commissioner Scott Franks told the Scene of its new location: "It's legal because basically the people that are subjecting themselves to the McKamey program, or whatever you want to call it, they're doing so voluntarily."

McKamey Manor appeared on "Haunters: The Art of the Scare," a 2017 Netflix documentary about a new breed of horror attractions that's "not going to scare you — it's going to scar you."

The manor was also featured on episode eight of "Dark Tourist," in which the presenter David Farrier quit long before the real horror experience even began.

Haunted House McKamey Manor Offers $20,000 To Make It To The End – But No One Has Done It

McKamey Manor Haunted House

One of the most exciting aspects for Halloween is the popularity for haunted houses and mazes. The trend has become an increasingly massive event for horror fans and thrill-seekers through the decades, and as such there are many haunted houses which compete to be the scariest of them all. Now it looks like McKamey Manor in Summertown, Tennessee, is being called “the scariest in the world”.

The McKamey Manor haunted house requires visitors to sign a 40-page waiver, pass a physical and undergo a background check. But once you go through these steps, and potentially make it through the entire haunted house, then you have the opportunity to win a $20,000 grand prize. But as of this writing, no one has ever finished the haunted house attraction and thus the money remains unclaimed.

“Nobody’s even made it to the starting clock with this new show,” owner Russ McKamey said. “With the new mental game, it’s much more difficult. And because of that, no one’s even started the clock.”
“When I use the hypnosis I can put you in a kitty pool with a couple inches of water and tell you there’s a great white shark in there, and you’re gonna think there’s a shark in there,” he said. “And so, when you have that kind of power over people, and have them do and see things that you want them to see, then they can leave here thinking it really happened, and they’ll go to the authorities and say, ‘oh, whatever,’ and I have to come back and show the footage and say, ‘it didn’t go that way at all.’”

It turns out the footage has come in handy because apparently visitors have called the police on him. “It’s saved me a thousand times.”

Controversial Haunted House Requires Doctor's Note, 40-Page Waiver & Safe Word

Updated on 10/31/2019 at 11:24 AM

click to play video

Going to a haunted house requires a lot of forethought. Should you wear glasses? Are you at risk for seizures? Will you stick your young child in the back of the group because they're at the mercy of your cruel adult will?

But never in the history of haunted house coverage have we seen an experience that requires as much preparation as a tour through McKamey Manor. In order to take a tour, you need a sports fitness test, a doctor's note, a 40-page waiver, a safe word, and a background check. And probably another pair of pants. 

We've already covered the most haunted places in every state . Coming in at the top for Tennessee is the Bell Witch Cave, but that hole-in-a-stone with dark undertones pales in comparison to Russ McKamey's haunted house in Summertown, Tennessee, because of what's required to ensure your survival. 

McKamey Manor has been featured on Netflix's “Haunters: Art of the Scare” and on an episode of “Dark Tourist,” largely because no one has ever successfully completed the experience before. The mental preparation required often keeps participants from even beginning the experience. 

And some argue that nobody who wants to preserve their sanity should  begin the experience. As of Halloween morning, over 77,000 people have signed a petition to get the haunted house shut down, claiming that "it’s a torture chamber under disguise." 

Let's take at these requirements: 

  • Be 21 years0-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 

You also have to watch this video before you go through with the experience. It is a film "showcasing every contestant who has ever attempted the new MCKAMEY MANOR tours," per the video description. Just by watching the footage, you can see that the people coming out of the experience have clothing pins and tape on their face, and each one sounds empty, as if a demon had possessed and left them, leaving behind a shell of the person they were before. But that's just speculation.

The author of the petition claims that McKamey uses loopholes to get out of being arrested. For example, they say, even though there's a safe word, "the torture continues even when people repeat their safe word for several minutes." They also claim that a lot of the employees of the house have violent histories. We cannot confirm this now, but you can also totally go to another very scary haunted house somewhere else. 

"This movie will explain in great detail what the Manor actual is, and what it is not," the description says. "Forget the crazy stories, this film will tell the truth to everyone including all future guests. Those partaking in the tour must clearly understand what will happen to each and every one of them."

According to Fox 2 , the price to tour the manor is a bag of dog food, because Russ McKamey has five pups, but McKamey says he'll give you $20,000 if you complete the experience. If you don't complete it, you have to face a camera and say "you don't have to do this." 

If you're unperturbed by anything I've just written or by the petition circulating nationally, maybe rethink your priorities.

WTVF - Nashville, Tennessee

Extreme 'haunted house' torture experience lasts 10 hours, offers $20,000 prize at the end

scary haunted house that pays you to finish

Would you be able to get through what’s arguably the scariest “haunted house” attraction ever?

Located in Alabama and Tennessee, McKamey Manor is home to “Desolation.” It’s a 10-hour extreme experience where “each guest will be mentally and physically challenged until you reach your personal breaking point,” the website says.

Footage shows participants in tight spaces, being locked in dark areas, taunted with insects and scorpions, harassed and covered in who-knows-what, among countless other things.

The sights and sounds of the tour has left not only participants, but also neighbors terrified.

Commenters on YouTube have criticized the tour and said things like, "Yup never ever not even a chance that I will try that."

The website states you must be 21 years old, complete a sports physical, have doctors' letters clearing you mentally and physically, pass a background check and drug test, have proof of insurance and be screened beforehand. Once you get through those steps, you must also sign a 40-page waiver.

You are encouraged to make a donation before you tour what Wikipedia calls a “torture house attraction.” A local radio station says “the cost is only a bag of dog food, and if you can make it through you're rewarded with $20,000.” They say no one has been able to make it through to get the prize.

WGN says every tour is filmed to help protect the owner in court, which they've apparently had to use before when being sued.

The terrifying tour has been featured on Netflix’s “Dark Tourist” show.

This Terrifying Haunted House Will Give You $20,000 If You Can Make It to the End — but No One Ever Has

McKamey Manor in Summertown, Tennessee may lay claim to being the world’s scariest haunted house. It’s so scary that no one has ever completed it — but if you do, you’ll win $20,000.

All it costs to enter is a bag of dog food. Russ McKamey, the owner and mastermind behind the manor, has five dogs to feed.

The haunted house has several eye-popping preconditions. Contestants who want to enter must get a letter from their doctor asserting they are physically and mentally fit, and there’s a drug test day-of. Signing the 40-page contract alone takes three to four hours. Oh, and you have to have medical insurance because you’ll probably get hurt.

“I’m a very straight laced conservative guy, but here I run this crazy haunted house that people think is this torture factory, fetish factory,” McKamey told local news WFLA. “All of these things that it’s not, but people believe that based upon the films that I have made.”

If you haven’t yet heard about McKamey Manor in Summertown, Tennessee, then you might want to turn back now. McKamey is considered  the scariest haunted house  in the entire country, and its owner, Russ, takes that title very seriously. So seriously, in fact, that he’ll offer you $20,000 if you make it through.

Don’t get too cocky, though. According to  this local Houston site , no one has yet to succeed.

The requirements alone  are enough to send you packing. You’ll need to check off all of the following boxes:

If you're curious about what the haunted house entails, watch the video below.  Warning: This is graphic.

The physical cost is cheap—all Russ asks for is a 50-pound bag of dog food that he donates to an animal shelter. But the emotional stakes are incredibly high. Some people are tasked with eating cockroaches, being buried alive, fighting to survive  Saw- like contraptions, and more. The  Nashville Scene  also mentions eels, tasers, paintball guns, and whips.

How to Skip the Wait List for Haunted House That Pays $20K — By The Owner Himself (Exclusive)

scary haunted house that pays you to finish

24,000 people are currently in line to be the first to complete McKamey Manor and claim the prize.

The owner of McKamey Manor, the haunted house that will pay a guest $20,000 to survive a run-through, said the current coronavirus pandemic isn't scaring away fans.

Chatting with TooFab exclusively, Russ McKamey revealed his wait list is as long as ever, even with social distancing and facial masks part of the harrowing experience.

"It's just as busy, if not busier," the entertainer said. "I get hundreds of requests a day of people trying to go through and you got to weed them out. Cause you got a lot of knuckleheads and I'm trying to keep the knuckleheads out of here and you get people coming through here for the wrong reason, which is kind of the money situation."

Although the cash prize is ready to be Venmo'd on a moment's notice, Russ said he prefers visitors looking for the thrill of the adventure, not just a monetary buzz. Plus, he highly doubts anyone is going to be asking for anything other than mercy when all is said and done.

"The Manor's going to win, the Manor is going to always win," Russ said with a laugh. "I've been doing this a long time. 10 hours is longer than what you can possibly imagine when you're actually inside the tour. So I don't care how tough you think you are. The Manor is going to win."

"So if you're coming here for the money, you might as well turn around right now and just walk away. But if you come in here for a fun time and really neat experience, then this is the place."

Whatever the intention may be for the contestants, the McKamey Manor tour, which Russ describes as a "survival horror bootcamp," already had safety protocols in place before the onset of the coronavirus pandemic. Along with being a mostly outdoors experience, guests wear a McKamey Manor hood covering their face the entire time. And social distancing comes naturally, according to Russ, as he has contoured the haunt into more of a one-on-one contest where he stands 6 feet apart from the victims.

"It's much more mental. It's much more difficult," Russ explained, adding, "When it's all mental and when there's hypnosis involved and things like that, then I can make you believe whatever I want you to believe."

In clips of the Manor experience featured online, participants -- who appear bruised, bloodied and utterly petrified -- are blindfolded, screamed at and buried in mud. Some even have their hair shaved off. Just your average Halloween family fun.

Before guests begin their harrowing journey, however, Russ requires them to watch a two-hour movie. The video -- "And Then There Were None" -- is a montage of every contestant who tried to survive the ordeal between July 2017 and August 2019.

Here is a full list of the other requirements:

  • Be 21 years old or older, or 18-20 with parental 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

While people have come from all over to take the challenge -- including Great Britain, Ireland, Belgium and Kuwait -- no one has even come close to claiming victory.

"I'd say that most anybody's ever been inside was probably about two hours," Russ claimed. "I'd say half the people quit at the contract. The contract is quite daunting itself. You find out what is involved. It's spelled out specifically what you'll do and how to do it. So I don't hold anything back. You know exactly what you're getting into before you ever take a foot inside the Manor."

"And that way, no one can ever say, 'Oh, I didn't know that this happens or that happens.' Yeah you did -- number 36 right here we talk about pulling teeth or pulling nails or whatever the case may be. Right? So you know everything that's going to happen before you take a step in."

Although the waiting list hovers around 24,000 people, there is a way to jump to the top of the heap once you sign in at the McKamey Manor closed Facebook group.

"If we think you're a really strong candidate, someone that's going to be a lot of fun to watch, then we can bump you on up," Russ divulged. "So there's always a way. If there's a will, there's a way, right?"

When asked why anyone would enjoy putting people through the ringer, Russ charmingly laughed once again.

"It's just, you know, I'm an entertainer," he began. "Whether it be the haunted house or as an actor or a singer or a guitar player or in bands, whatever, I just like to entertain and what better way to entertain than to create this play. And that's what this is. It's just a big play."

"And that's why haunted houses intrigued me so much because you can put so much into a haunted house that's different than any other type of experience out there, but it all boils down to just purely entertainment."

"And that's what it is and why I do it," he continued. "Cause I'm not making money on it. That's for sure. I'm the worst businessman in the world and price of admission is still just a bag of dog food."

"So I'm not very smart when it comes to business," Russ added with a sly smile.

The McKamey Manor is not without its critics, however, as there is an online petition calling for it to be shut down, claiming the haunted house is nothing more than a "torture chamber under disguise"

"It’s literally just a kidnapping and torture house," the petition reads. "Some people have had to seek professional psychiatric help and medical care for extensive injuries."

In July of 2017, a woman reported to police that she was assaulted by a deadly weapon while participating in the experience when it was located in San Diego, per The San Diego Union-Tribune . Detectives investigated and decided not to pursue criminal charges.

When asked about the allegations by The Washington Post , Russ denied any physical harm or illegal activity occurring during the tour. He also said he records each session as proof of what transpires between himself and the contestant.

"There's no torture, there's nothing like that, but under hypnosis if you make someone believe there's something really scary going on, that's just in their own mind and not reality," he told the outlet.

"It really is a magic act, what I do," he added. "It’s a lot of smoke and mirrors."

Haunted House Is So Scary They Offer $20,000 To Anyone Who Finishes It

By Dave Basner

October 24, 2019

scary haunted house that pays you to finish

There are haunted houses and then there is McKamey Manor. The Summertown, Tennessee attraction is so horrific that anyone brave enough to make it through it will get themselves $20,000. This year's experience is called "Desolation" and the Manor's owner promises a "new level of extreme horror" during it, but it's not for just anyone.

Before visitors can go in the haunted house , they have to be screened via Facebook, video chat or phone, pass a background check, undergo a drug test, prove they have medical insurance, sign a 40-page waiver, complete a physical, and have a doctor's note to prove they are physically and mentally fit for the fearful experience .

They also have to watch a nearly two-hour long video that shows every contestant who has attempted to complete the manor since July 2017 quitting. It's because 100% of visitors don't finish the house that owner Russ McKamey is offering $20,000 to anyone who does. That's something that will be even harder with "Desolation" because, according to Russ , "Nobody's even made it to the starting clock with this new show. With the new mental game, it's much more difficult."

The tour is actually free (a donation is suggested but not required) but the Manor has a warning for wannabe visitors: "Each tour will be different based upon your personal fears, and can last up to 10 HOURS. Each guest will be mentally and physically challenged until you reach your personal breaking point. You will be tested to your very core."

They are not beyond waterboarding and slapping, and according to Russ, one person even had a heart attack during the experience.

The Manor, which has been described as one of America's scariest haunted houses, was profiled in a 2017 Netflix documentary called Haunters: The Art of the Scare about modern horror attractions that aren't "going to scare you" rather they will "scar you."

World’s Scariest Haunted House Will Pay $20K If You Can Make It Out!

' src=

  • haunted house
  • McKamey Manor

I love Halloween. More than Christmas, Thanksgiving, and the Fourth of July combined. I love it. Ever since I can remember, and it’s no secret I enjoy a good haunted house. To me, a haunted house needs to be…well..scary. To the point of me feeling like I am going to faint from fright, and not sleep for three days. It’s ridiculous, I know, but that’s why I love it, and I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who feels that way. Which is why McKamey Manor is my next target.

Videos by Rare

Described as the “haunted house of all haunted houses,” McKamey Manor is so extreme that participants are required to fill out a 40 (!) page waiver, and come up with a safe word before entering the house. According to the owner, no one has been able to finish the experience, but the number of people hoping to try it is long! Currently, there are 24,000 people on the waitlist.

(Warning: The video might be distrusting to some.)

The house was featured on the Netflix documentary “Dark Tourist,” where New Zealand filmmaker and journalist David Farrier visits unusual, haunted, a horrific tourist location around the world…which only makes sense he would visit McKamey. In the last half of the ‘docu-series,’ Farrier visits the manor, which is described as the most extreme haunted house in the world. He eventually gives up halfway, terrified for his life.

Honestly, I have to admit that the whole experience looks like a mix of gore in-between “Saw” and “The Hills Have Eyes.” I genuinely got scared after watching the video, and I wasn’t even in the house! I was on my couch eating Flaming Hot Cheetos, anxiously waiting for someone to say “banana.” Yes, that’s the safe word I would use. Can you imagine crying your eyes out and then just yelling “BANANA” out of nowhere? It would lighten up the moon in seconds, for sure. Perfect safe word.

[protected-iframe id=”e4446926db39b699e7dcbb55e8dc75e7-46934866-140821546″ info=”https://www.facebook.com/plugins/video.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fnetflixus%2Fvideos%2F10155692706938870%2F&show_text=0&width=476″ width=”476″ height=”476″ frameborder=”0″ style=”border: none; overflow: hidden;” scrolling=”no”]

Anyway, the house which is located in Summertown, Tennessee, lets guest truly live out a real-life horror film for free, and those that complete the 4 to 7-hour journey can win prize money! States owner and creator Russ McKamey and girlfriend Carol Schultz reportedly spent more than $500,000 to make McKamey the scariest experience on earth, and for that kind of money, I sure hope so.

To protect themselves from any lawsuit, because of course, this is America and people love lawsuits, McKamey records the entire haunted experience on camera.

What other requirements does the house have?

  • 21 and above, or 18-20 with parent approval.
  • Completed “sports physical” and doctor’s letter stating you are physically and mentally cleared.
  • Pass a background check.
  • 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.

Off to MCKamey Manor , I go! BRB.

Terrifying haunted house pays you $20,000 if you finish – but no one ever has

' src=

McKamey Manor in Summertown, Tennessee is supposed to be one of the world’s scariest Haunted Houses. It is so scary in fact that no one has ever made it through to the end. However, if you can stand the torment and finish it, you will win $20,000 USD. And, the good news is, all it costs to enter is a bag of dog food since, Rus McKamey, the owner and creator behind the freaky manor, has five dogs to feed.

If you are considering taking a serious stab at the prize money, there are a few preconditions the hay-wire haunted house in the south requires you to do first: contestants who want to enter the frightening abode will need a letter from their doctor stating they are physically and mentally fit to attempt to get through the house. There’s also a day of drug testing – no illegal substances permitted to help you get through this creepy, but potentially cash-rich prospect.

A few pre-requirements needed prior to entry

scary haunted house that pays you to finish

You will finish off the legal formalities by signing your life away on a 40-page contract, which alone takes three to four hours to get through – testing your endurance in more than just one way – and by presenting valid medical insurance … because chances are high that you will get hurt … no point in candy sugar coating the truth here.

According to the owner of the haunted house, people assume he’s a twisted guy that’s in to running a torture and fetish factory. The haunted house’s owner and creator is a veteran film maker of horror flicks. McKamey makes a show for each contestant who attempts the seemingly impossible. The trickery lies in the fact that the feat shifts for every individual based on their own particular fears – making the fright highly customized and all the harder to beat. And it’s been featured on the Netflix show Dark Tourism and Haunters: The Art of the Scare .

“I’m a normal guy, I swear” – owner of the haunted house

Supposedly, there is nothing too weird that takes place within the manor. Although, that being said, it’s been reported according to The Guardian that visitors may be “bound, masked and held under water, slapped and stomped on, and compelled to eat your own vomit” during the eight-hour tour – that is, if they can even last that long. The owner swears that it is nothing more than an intense mental game which has me wondering if even a Navy Seal could beat it. Oh, and apparently, he always wins by using hypnosis.

McKamey films each contestant’s journey through the house of horrors, not just because it makes a great show, but also to prevent anyone from claiming false accusations against him. The owner states that, for example, “When I use the hypnosis I can put you in a kitty pool with a couple inches of water and tell you there’s a great white shark in there, and you’re gonna think there’s a shark in there”. The video footage is there to prove to the public and authorities that nothing of the sort took place, and that it was all in your head.

Think you have what it takes to make it through?

Prior to going in, you will be required to watch a two-hour video if you have the perception of yourself that you are stronger and more capable than other people. “And Then There were None” is a two-hour documentary about the people who have attempted this haunted house and given up … “you really don’t want to do this” they say.

If you dare say you’ve got the right stuff to get the job done, then you can contact McKamey online to arrange your own bone-chilling tour. And remember, there are always plenty of other haunted houses out there that you can visit without signing away your soul.

Hi Richard, you should go for it then!

' src=

What is described by the owner of this establishment is not fun. The purpose of a haunted house is to be “scared” but not fear for your life. Using mind games and water boarding IS NOT fun nor entertaining. The owner is or was one of out countries finest military personnel and he uses the skills he learned to get information from people that do us harm. Turning it into a haunted house is taking it too far. I have heard that a majority of people haven’t even found the key and the people that go through the on boarding paperwork decide that they aren’t going to even attempt it. Where is the fun in all of this? This should not be a part of HALLOWEEN FUN, this should be something separate and not associated. Does the owner pay for any psychological damage that this experience may incur? Just because they pass the opening evaluation, doesn’t mean that once this person has figured out what their fear is, and uses it against them, doesn’t mean they will leave in the same mental state they entered in.
