    Taken form their facebook page:

    "I just bought tickets for Halloween night. Last year's haunted house was brilliant - I will never forget that plastic bag behind pulled over my head (and left there for a long long time) or the full-frontal male nudity."

    They also make you remove shoes and socks but don't give you a place to put them and state they arent responsible for anything lost or stolen.

    But I want to drive by the place wait for someone to come out and ask them. It's hard to believe everything you read unless you witness it. I think it's more of a terror horror house compared to a haunted house.

    Ok whether this is real or not, am I the only one who is angered by the very idea of this? This goes against everything I got in the business for. This business is supposed to be about entertaining people, and whats entertaining about that?

    To put it simply, the whole thing sounds like trouble.

    It's in Manhattan, you can do things theatrically there you can't do many other places in the world. It's between the Theatre District and SoHo, making it a cross between Sunset Blvd. and Tijuana, compared to middle America it may as well be Mars. I'm sure it's a success at least as they choose to define it.

    Sounds like fun except Manhatten is infested with vampire lawyers, and waivers mean nothing when it comes to lawsuits. If they are properly insured, some slimy lawyer and his maggot client are going to take these folks to the cleaners. Or rather, sue their insurance company, and then the rest of us will pay for it in our premiums. Our legal tort system is out of control.

    does not sound like fun to me. I would avoid it. I go to haunted attractions to have FUN. Ya, I wanna be SCARED, but in a FUN way. This place ( I guess it's the "over the top" New York attitude) is not for me at all.

    Below is pulled from a blog of a guy that went through it...Somehow it doesnt seem fun at all to me



    "So here's what happens: You walk in, They give you a shot of whiskey (good so far), then they put a surgical mask over your face (uncomfortable). When I pulled it down off my nose so I could breathe a little better I was chastised. Then they put those plastic individual cuffs (that police use) on each one of your wrists. After an intimidating preamble, the guy gives you a flashlight (about 2 inches in size) that completely doesn't work and you're told to follow the path (basically white glow tape that's impossible to see). Since you can't see anything you are practically crawling on the ground to find your way. After many twists and turns, people seem to jump out of nowhere. You're grabbed, told to walk up and down stairs, THEN they bind your hands together (hence the plastic cuffs), put a burlap sack over your head (!) while grabbing at you some more (going up and down stairs), and generally freaking you out. I had to kneel. Apparently my friend Tyler had to bark. And then you just wait for what happens next. Crazy.

    I was NOT prepared to have a burlap sack over my head and admit I had to "talk myself down" a bit as you were stuck waiting for a few minutes to be told what to do next -- which felt like an eternity. [too hot! can't breathe!] After pulling the bag and bindings off (GASP* thank God), you're roughed up a bit more, then walk through some weird maze stuff, until you find yourself in an enclosed Buffalo Bill themed room with a big "EXIT" sign over the opposing door. Of course when you go to open the door --it won't. And then you see that there's some crazy man/woman creature emerging from a rocking chair that you basically have to fight in order to escape. (There is in fact a smaller door, with a padlock. He has the key to the lock. and you have to get it from him. Oh, and he's naked from the waist done --[This is likely fake, though I admit i couldn't quite tell in the moment]). Then once you are able to get the key and let yourself out (which is sort of a physical battle), you crawl down this claustrophobia inducing weird tunnel type thing. Then it was over. "
    Jesus loves you, but everyone else thinks you're an asshole.

    How does one make any money on this attraction? The Through put has to be minimal and the reason people go to hunted houses is to have fun and enjoy seeing others reactions to scares. I know i am out on this one...
