WARNING: The above video contains scenes of graphic fake violence some might find disturbing.
Most so-called haunted house attractions provide little more than a few masked teens popping out of cardboard walls dripping with obviously fake blood. Once you’ve been to about two, the shtick can get pretty old, but there’s at least one haunted house certain to scare even the most hardened horror-fans.
San Diego’s McKamey Manor turns the normally-mild experience into a scare extravaganza bordering on the torturous. Participants brave enough to sign up are bound, gagged, and drenched in blood for four to seven hours. And that’s only the beginning.
Guests attending the psychologically exhausting experience are force fed, ridden like horses, shouted at, and locked in small boxes. Sounds horrible, right? The 24,000 people on the waiting list would disagree.
All guests are required to sign a waiver and undergo a health check to make sure they have the stomach, and the heart, to go through such an ordeal.
The Independent reports that at least one couple attended the attraction right after their wedding, ringing in their blessed union by having their heads locked in cages full of snakes.
