Why anyone would be willing to subject themselves to this kind of fear is beyond me. Maybe I’m just a wuss or because I was traumatized as a child walking through the Van Helsing Haunted House at Universal Studios, but any dark, cobwebbed mansion with reflections of flashing lightning in the windows and howling winds a-blowing is a hard pass for me.
That’s not the case for visitors of The Nightmare Fear Factory in Niagara Falls, where people throw themselves headlong into the dark and dreary halls of, by the looks of it, one of the scariest haunted houses out there.
It’s a personal challenge to see if you’re brave enough to face the terrors of the night, and while you may make it out alive, you’ll quickly say FML when you see just how brave you weren’t when you were tiptoeing down the halls hiding behind your friend.
Here are some of FML’s favorite visitor reactions:
1. Is this the face of fear or disgust? Or both?
