NIGHTMARES Fear Factory
If you're into scary stuff, this is one local horror chamber you've got to visit. Located across from the Casino Niagara , the "fear factory" boasts a 20-year history of scaring the daylights out of those who dare wander in—and a half-million have tried it to date. The tour takes 10-15 minutes and you can get off any time by screaming "NIGHTMARES". The locale comes by its frightful credentials legitimately as it was once the site of the Cataract Coffin Factory!
This is unreal scary. So much fun! Went a couple years ago and I want to go back to Niagara pretty much just for this experience. It is done so well and the twists and turns make it feel real. The part where you have to crouch down is crazy. You can feel what feels like spider webs above and the effects are GREAT! Would not recommend for someone who scares easily. This is pretty hard core! SO GREAT!
Right, so before you read this review please bear in mind the following.
1. I don't like horror films AT ALL.
2. I don't like being scared EVER.
3. I LOVED every minute of this.
Right - so yes the adventure consists of pitch black odd shaped rooms and hallways...the red lights are what you follow and there are animatronic things that pop out. Combined with frightening sound effects and hot air being blown on you at times, its fantastic.
As for staff touching you or grabbing you, it didn't happen in our party at all. Although my cousin insisted someone was behind us. She led the way for the first four minutes and then I took over (not even my idea to do this). I laughed (nervous laughter) through out the entire thing.
The bottom line is: It's pretend. You are not in any danger unless you move quickly and bang your head on a wall or something...in other words slow down and feel along the walls with your hand...you'll be fine. The slower you go the better and less chance of injuring yourself. No one in my party was injured but I do have finger print bruises on my arm because of my friends grip on me.
If you keep in mind that you are not in danger and that it's just pretend, its not mind numbing...it's just freaky and fun.
My group consisted of three women in their 40's - two screamers and myself in hysterical laughter the entire time. The rush you get after you have been through it is phenominal. Your adrenaline is pumping and your endorphins(sp)are raging...it's a total rush.
I recommend it. Bit expensive...but worth doing it once. I would not recommend this for kids...it's not funny to have a kid that scared. They do not have the logic to get through it knowing it is "just pretend". Heck most of us don't! It would be child abuse to bring a young child through this attraction.
DO NOT DO THIS IF YOU HAVE:
1. A fear of the dark. (phobic type fear)
2. A fear of enclosed spaces.
3. High blood pressure and other health issues associated with stress.
Would I do it again? Yes! I bought the photo...which is just hilarious...it's only six bucks, get the picture.
Go with a group of extroverted friends! Don't bring the church mouse to this...you'll be peeling him/her off the ceiling and having to chicken out within the first couple of minutes.
I hope this helps. I wish someone would have at least warned me!!
Hands down the scariest haunted house i have ever been to. well worth the trip to Niagra Falls if you like scary stuff. And if you get too scared and chicken out, they give you this neato card with your number on it.
Don't go! It's just very dark, narrow hallways that snake through an old building. One of the help runs around behind the walls grabbing your legs or swinging things at you in the dark. You see small red lights to lead you in the right direction. When you crawl down on your knees to get through a hole, you change direction. When you stand back up be careful because the wall in front of you isn't straight. It must be under a stairway. I stood up and broke my nose. I could see the red light on my knees and assumed the wall was flush but when I stood up, I hit the wall. The staff wasn't helpful.
Thank You,It was so great we all had ssssooooo much fun we are going to get another group together and come back.It was "GREAT".This is where we choose to go for sweetest day,Talk about being close to each other.I haven't had so much body contact in a long time.
