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.”

It’s an annual tradition–Sai Mokhtari photographs the New York subway on Halloween. Take a scroll through hundreds of photos from the last few years. Yes there are lots of Suicide Squad characters, but there’s also a living bodega, Billy Mitchell from King Of Kong, Joanne the Scammer, and a woman dressed as the entire Zola […]
This Bob Ross “painted” happy little trees onto their partner’s face all evening. I’ve lived in Alameda, California going on 10 years now and I’m always surprised by what I see on Halloween night — it’s a real circus! Each year, thousands of revelers head to my neighborhood in the Fernside district to trick or […]
Pete Tridish and pals made a hell of a Hallowe'en haunt this year: on their "porch of doom," trick-or-treaters were sent to a Mars colonized by billionaires where they were expected to mine Mars rocks and put them in Amazon Mars boxes at a sweatshop Amazon Mars warehouse; Pete notes that the haunt was partly […]
With everything happening in the last few months, we all but guarantee no one has been thinking about their taxes. That’s understandable — because, beyond all of our current concerns, nobody enjoys the whole tax filing process during even the best of times. Unfortunately, Benjamin Franklin was right — taxes truly are as inescapable as […]
Most parents know that giving their kids educational toys and other projects will expand their minds. But what many might not realize is that physical play is actually building their mental abilities as well. Studies are still in beginning stages, but some early research supports the theory that kids who get the chance to get […]
Not every house has a fireplace. And to be honest, not every homeowner wants to deal with the hassles and maintenance of a fireplace. But it’s tough to argue that the intoxicating glow and dance of a licking flame isn’t mesmerizing, not to mention all of a fire’s practical uses. For those looking to enjoy […]
