I don’t like haunted houses. They make me cry like a little baby.
I don’t care if Russ Mckamey, the owner and creator, will pay out $20,000 to anyone who makes it to the end of the 10-hour — yes, I said TEN HOUR — nightmare.
Nobody has ever made it to the end! In fact, once people see the 40-page waiver you have to sign, they don’t even START the toture fest. Some don’t even make it OUT OF THEIR CARS!
It’s considered a haunted house, but actually, it is literally pure torture. The actors most definitely come in contact with you, but you are not allowed to return even a touch. You aren’t even allowed to cuss.
The horror show changes up frequently. In the past, they have had very physically challenging experiences. In fact, you have to have a sports physical and prove you have health insurance before you even step foot on the property.
- 21 and above, or 18-20 with parents approval.
- Completed “Sports Physical” and Doctors letter stating you are physically and mentally cleared.
- Pass a background check provided by MM.
- Be screened via FB face time or phone.
- Proof of medical insurance.
- Sign a detailed 40 page waiver.
- Pass a portable drug test on the day of the show.
The current perilous adventure is called “Desolation,” and according to the movie you must watch prior to attending, is a psychological mind game.
I can’t even imagine — nor do I want to imagine — what this might entale.
I do know, in the past they have shoved cockroches in the players’ mouths, made them eat actual vomit, and have physically beaten them.
If you want to go through with the grueling hell that is Mckaney Manor, you can contact Russ directly through the website. The price is a bag of dog food, but it will cost you a whole lot more in psychological and physical pain.
There have been a couple documentaries that have featured Mckamey Manor, and Russ constantly uploads footage of the failed and humilated players to the Mckamey Manor website. Watch them at your own risk. Do NOT watch them with kids around.
Now excuse me while I go grab a crucifix and watch a Disney movie to cleanse my thoughts of this house of torment.
