Halloween Tips and Tricks

McKamey Manor in Tennesee is considered the scariest haunted house attraction in the United States. How scary is it? People must sign a 40-page waiver to enter. If you survive, you’ll earn $20,000, but so far, no one has earned the reward.

Per WFLA, the haunted house is owned and operated by Russ McKamey, who also requires people to create a safe word, pass a physical and watch a two-hour film compilation of people attempting to get through McKamey Manor only to say into the camera, “You really don’t want to do this.”

Other requirements to enter McKamey Manor, and they include the following: Being 21 years of age or older (or having parental approval if you’re between 18-20); pass a background check; be screened over the phone, on Facebook or Facetime; show proof of medical insurance; and pass a drug test the day you attempt going through the attraction.

Basically, you really have to want to attempt entering this nightmare palace. Frankly, $20,000 doesn’t even seem like enough money as a reward. Offer to pay someone’s student loans, and then things might get interesting.
