    I've heard these are some of the scariest haunted houses... ever. It deals less with monsters/supernatural and more with your own survival. You have to sign many wavers and go through it alone!


    "Blackout has very little in terms of scenery and props. Instead, it relies on sensory deprivation and physical contact. You will be touched and grabbed and forced to watch (or participate in) various distasteful things. I don't want to give too much away..."


    From what I've heard Blackout Haunted Houses include:
    -Being waterboarded
    -A plastic bag being put over your head
    -Pure darkness
    -Being physically roughed around.
    -A naked man staging you in a rape scene
    -A woman pulling a condom out of her vag, drinking what was (hopefully) yogurt out of it and spitting it in your face
    ...AND MORE!

    Here's a whole article about it. What are your thoughts? Would you sign a waver and traverse it alone?

    "WARNING: spoiler alert. Details might not matter anymore since shows are way over.

    You go in, check in, give them anything that might get wet, and wait to be called in.
    One by one the line in front of you gets shorter and shorter until it's your turn. You go into a dark tunnel make some turns and are told to stop at an X. You get a paper mask and someone shines a light in your eyes for ten seconds, you are read instructions and go in.

    At first, it is dark. Pitch dark. You don't know whether to stand or walk. I walked and got pulled back. Stood and was threatened with a knife.

    I got a plastic bag over my head, wrists tied, was smelled by a nude woman, was 'waterboarded,' had to dig out a key from a toilet with vomit, suck on a bloody tampon, crawled around while being chased by someone in a tunnel, and rescued a tortured woman.

    It's a shock to the senses. Going in alone and not knowing exactly what will happen makes it even scarier."

    TBH, that doesn't sound too scary at all. It's all preplanned, you KNOW it's fake, and there is a safe word. Meh....icon_neutral.gif

    From what I understand, each year is different. Personally I think it sounds a bit scarier because it deals less with supernatural themes. Maybe that's just me though :-)

    That's the only kind of haunted house I could see actually being thrilling. I would do it.

    EDIT: I didn't read the entire first post. No, I don't think I'd like that.

    I'd do it on a dare or as an adventure, but I wouldn't pay to do it.

    The only type of haunted thing that I turned down immediately was when the year they turned one of our old closed mental hospitals into a haunted tour thing. I'd lose my mind hahaha

    Maybe. I'll expect souvenirs of course. Like an "I heart N.C." t-shirt or a new car that's really good on gas.

    I wonder if Occupational Health and Safety had guidelines for reducing repetitive motion injuries or latex allergies in place for that woman that had to pull a condom out every time a guest came through.

    Seriously not a fun job.

    I'm surprised this kind of thing doesn't violate state and/or municipal laws... depends on the location I'd expect. I'd pass on it, however.
