    Even better than expected
    The staff did a great job at scaring / entertaining us. I think my favourite part was when my daughter insisted on being in front and then lasted 5 seconds before she was huddled behind me. We both had a great time. Very well set up :)
    Thank you SO much Naomi H! It sounds as though you and your daughter really made the most of your visit and enjoyed the scares - your review means a lot to us 👻

    Definitely worth the visit!
    Highly recommend! I took a group of 15 year olds for my son's birthday, and we definitely rate it! A lot of effort has gone into creating a perfect environment to let the imagination run wild. A good adrenaline boost and opportunity for team bonding!
    Awesome weaversbunch, thanks so much for your great review of our family business!

    Great experience
    Great experience. Great atmosphere, maze was great. We did the day time one with no actors, still very scary but better knowing no one was there. Took Miss 9 as a birthday surprise, as nervous as she was so she really enjoyed it

It was a good experience, though I would definitely recommend more upgrades and adding more features to the experience and maybe a longer experience than 15minutes. I personally didn’t find anything scary. And updating information on the website, as it was a bit misleading on the prices, as there two separate prices and I purchased for two people $60 and that was same experience for purchasing it $40.

Hello Deepa134, We’re pleased you found us a good experience though you claim not to have found anything scary! You sound though you prefer straightforward visual scares rather than those based in the Victorian horror genre. We’ll follow up on your feedback re our website

I decided to start the New Year off with a scare and so on the Jan 1 while visiting Wellington with my family I went down to Fear Factory and did the solo self-guided tour. It was blast and it was great chatting to Matthew who runs the site.

I was a bit apprehensive at the start due to getting lost in a hunted house when I was little but Matthew was great and it was interesting hearing him talk about the business. You can tell he really cares about both the customers and his staff and has a real passion for the job.

Due to it being a public holiday there were no live actors but there were still some good scares and the props and effects all look great. Well worth my time and I hope 2023 is a fantastic year for this family run business.
