I scare myself before I even go in! It's really fun with friends. Would totally recommend for a group of friends. The scariest part is not being able to see where you're actually going and not knowing what's going to happen next. My friend thought that everything is automated by sensors, but apparently they're controlled by staff inside. That's really... More

Highly recommend visiting here. It delivered the heart pounding scare as promised. I often found myself lost in dark corners to be guided out by the actors only to be scared back to life again. Don't chicken out, you don't be sorry.

Just visited Fear Factory, Queenstown; OMG it was the scariest thing ever; it was THE scariest fun we have done as a family so far. If you don't do anything else, you simply must do this. Fantastic value and does what it says. All of us really enjoyed it and we were all scared to death.

This was amazing. we saw a brochure and then found the location when we arrived in Queenstown. One of the best bits of our stay. So very well done (How do I get a job here?)
