'Survival Horror' Haunted House makes you sign 40-page waiver & have insurance, drug test, and a safe word

Scary stuff! These 'Haunted House' operations require their patrons to sign a 40-page legal waiver. Before entering the venue, Halloween revelers must also possess insurance.

The 'McKamey Manor' haunted house venues in Summertown, Tennessee, and Huntsville, Alabama, also require that you be at least 18, pass a background check and drug test, and have a 'safe word.'


Intense audio, lighting, extreme low visibility, strobe and fog effects, damp and wet conditions, phycially demanding environments, close contact with creatures (you might be touched), very real and graphic scenes of horror.


No smoking, drinking, eating, running inside, or touching of props and/or actors. McKamey Manor reserves the right to refuse admission to anyone for any reason. The guest voluntarily assumes all risks/dangers associated with participation in this event.

Owner Russ McKamey offers thousands of dollars to any visitor who can complete what he says is a grueling Halloween adventure, WFLA-TV reports. McKamey says no one has managed to complete the course yet.

McKamey records each tour on video, including the humiliating defeat, and he says the videos are for his own legal protection.

He also posts the videos online.

The guests sign a waiver saying this is all okay.

All you have to do to enter is donate a bag of dog food. The website warns that the Haunted House is physically demanding, but McKamey says it's mostly mental.

The attractions have been featured on Netflix's "Haunters: Art of the Scare" and on an episode of "Dark Tourist."
