According to Haunt World, there were 4,000 haunted attractions in the U.S. during Halloween in 2016. Since then, the industry has continued to grow. While we’re sure most of them will give you a fright, these haunted houses take scariness to a whole new level. Are you brave enough to make it through?

McKamey Manor
Alabama: McKamey Manor

Donation-based pricing

BUY NOW

What the majority of the population would consider a torture chamber rather than a haunted house, McKamey Manor is by far the scariest "haunted house" there is. It began in San Diego, and now has locations in Alabama and Tennessee, and not one person has made it through without asking for it to be over. The 30-page waiver you need to sign in order to participate gives Russ McKamey and his "team" the OK to shock you, submerge you in water, and even give you unwanted dental work, along with other disturbing things we'll save you from reading.

McKamey is currently under watch from locals — in both of his new locations — who want him out. The most disturbing part: He has over 27,000 people on the waiting list.

*WARNING: The site contains graphic images and links to even more graphic YouTube videos of the experience.*
