My daughter (aged 16) wanted to try it out (as she had done some other haunted house earlier). But she 'chickened out within 5 min. No shame though, as she was preceeded by thousands of others. The staff is really friendly and helpful.

I'm 26 and not scared easily but this place is definitely scaryyy. You can do it in small groups or solo . I went by myself and had so much fun and pleasantly surprised at how efficient it was and the genuine fear at some points .

Completely whacko compared to a lot of tourist activities in Queenstown. Definitely will put you out of your comfort zone and enjoyed the experience. Fun and fantastic staff. Only downside is $35 each for 10-15 minutes.
