      If you’re scared easily then this is for u (or maybe not!)
      Pleasant staff. The experience is more for teenagers than adults. I’m not easily scared, but my gf hates the dark so was terrified throughout.

      Fantastic. Value for money
      Fantastic! Was great for a laugh and a little scare! Well made and the scares were the right amount! Staff were super lovely, very knowledgeable about queenstown and gave us $5 vouchers each for other touristy places. Don't know her name but I loved the staff member from Ireland who chatted with us today and had awesome make-up to look the part! Well worth the money and experience! Thanks crew @thehauntedhouse #fearfactoryqueenstown!

      Chilling, creepy and well worth it.
      Put the bravest person in your group first...they'll need their nerve...not that the last person gets it much better...very creepy and at times claustrophobic...well worth the price of admission...creepier than Aucklands Spookers Haunted House imo. Fairly short but you feel every minute you're in there. Got to do it at least once :)

      Unfair
      A wee bit disappointed, the rule is if one person can go on to handle it the rest can’t! Our 12 year old was keen as mustard, it came to the crunch and the first few seconds the noise and the scare put her off was super loud! So our older boy was super disappointed he missed out, absolutely gutted we wasted $80!!!!!! Where as if given the chance him and the other parent could of gone on and given a proper rating. Stupid unfair rule!!!!!! Feel ripped off!!!!!

      Give it a go
      As with this sort of things you need to give in to the moment and enjoy it for what it is. The staff were very good at their jobs but didn’t take it over the top intensity wise. Good for a laugh (afterwards!).

    The funniest scary activity we did. Going with the boys and seeing guys lose their cool is so funny. I highly enjoyed the experience and felt a sense of accomplishment ( after being pushed to be the leader fairly early in this experience) after completing it.

    Good fun

    My husband and I are self-professed horror fans and jumped at the idea of doing a haunted house experience. The staff were really friendly and helpful when we arrived and made sure we were as ready as we could be when we went behind the red door.
    From that point it was just amazing! Pitch black from start to finish and live actors around every corner to give us a proper fright. We enjoyed every minute of it, even though we were swearing and sweating the whole time!
    We cannot wait to come back and go through a second time. Hopefully we can convince our friends to tag along and see if they chicken out!
    Thank you!

    Such a let down. We went 5 years ago and it was awesome but sadly this time there were only 2 actors and for the first 5 minutes we just walked through darkness waiting for something... I know it's difficult to get staff in Queenstown at the moment (hence only having 2 actors) but the price should reflect the reduced service (still top dollar though)

    Hello B7470FScb, in fact five years ago you would have paid $10 more. We have tried our best to keep our standards as high as ever, but unfortunately this time it doesn’t seem to be the case. So please rebook, mention this email and come through again as our guest. All we ask is if there is a next time please talk to us before you leave and give us the chance to put things right there and then Vivienne Smith Family Owner

    We booked the scare factor as two family groups with kids, there were 6 that did it in total. It costs $150 all up with a bookme discount (so much cheaper than reg price). One of the kids called chicken (code word to get out) 30 secs into the experience, the lights went on and the whole group was escorted out. The other 5 people had to repay again to redo it, some decided they didnt want to pay again so 2 of them redid it. We though considering it was literally the first part and had been under 1 min inside the experience that requiring repayment for the rest of the group wasnt fair. When the other 2 of the group re did it, they loved it but it took them 7 mins in total to get from start to finish. They loved it but the repaying put a massive damper on it, especially considering we were the only ones there. I think they need to reconsider the repaying and making the entire group leave if 1 person wants out. All in all we spent over $200 for 2 people for 7 mins. Another thing is perhaps do them in smaller groups so you dont have the experience we had.

    Hi Charlotte000012, Thanks for your feedback and we’re pleased to hear your group loved their experience Re your comments about everyone coming out of the maze if someone Chickens Out, this was explained to you before you entered the attraction. Your group agreed to this rule and accepted our conditions. We exit everyone as we cannot leave unaccompanied groups in the dark in the maze as this would violate our health and safety code. As you know, groups can choose to enter agin and they are then charged a substantially lower rate Thanks for supporting our family business

    I have been to The Fear Factory 3 times. Each times with friends. Its for ages 7+, but I advise 10+ because it is actually terrifying. The live actors are really good at scaring me, they get me every time. They will make small contact with you but they’re not allowed to grab you. The staff are really nice, and overall it’s so great. It’s my favourite thing to do in town and I would go any day. However, it is 20$. And if you chicken you cannot get a refund. As well if you decide you don’t want to do it right at the start. My throat always hurts afterwards from the screaming and my legs are still shaking. It’s pretty hilarious when you get scared and I give this attraction a 10/10

    This was a really fun way to spend a rainy afternoon. I think it would have been more fun if we had gone with some people who scare easier as we didn't jump as many times as some of the other groups. I love that they photograph you while you go through. The photos are quite funny, I just wish they had caught us when we did scream and jump. Its $20nzd for your photo and some of them are totally worth it. It only takes about 10 mins to go through but left our adrenaline running high for at least an hour after and we couldn't quit laughing about it later. It costs $40nzd per adult.

    We were a family of 4 with children 9 and 14! Highly recommend. The reception was so welcoming reassuring and at the same time plays her role beey well. The actual fear factor team of scariness were amazing and at the same time safe, as in felt they had an idea who to scare the most in our family.

    I did this with my friend today and had a great time. I was excited to do this with my friend for ages and had already done the one in Wellington once with him and another time with another friend. I was a little underwhelmed as it went by very fast for us but we went very fast to be fair. Really good for kids and still good for adults and great price. Could’ve been a little more lit up and there were a few moments were it was just pitch dark and nothing happened but it was very fun and would recommend to everyone. Me personally I would choose the Wellington one because it is scarier and longer but also costs more. Great fun though will be recommending to all my friends (Me and my friend are 14 and 15)

    You wanna be scared? Then you have to check out fear factory. The whole experience was definitely not forgettable!!! The whole atmosphere was perfect to match everyone's different fears. There was 1 part that really got us and we will 100 percent never forget! We thoroughly enjoyed it and recommend it to anyone who's thinking of doing it.
