Niagara Falls's Nightmares Fear Factory (a spookhouse) has continued its tradition of posting pictures of people losing their minds at the event's climax. Wired has rounded up a collection of some of the best of the fresh crop and they're pretty amazing.
Popat wouldn’t divulge exactly what makes the place so scary — other than being haunted — but did say that instead of featuring the normal blood and guts, Nightmares has developed a system that “preys on people’s fears and phobias.”
Groups are encouraged to stick together as they wander through the haunted house, which is why so many of the photos feature lines of people clinging to each other.
At one point in the attraction — which usually takes 10 to 15 minutes to navigate — the groups come to a spot where they trigger a Nikon D80 camera and flash at the exact moment where they encounter some unknown fright that is so scary it provokes grown men to hide behind their wives and friends to jump into each other’s arms.
