I’m still gathering up the courage to enter this ‘two-time Niagara Falls Attraction of the Year‘ haunted house which is said to be THE scariest haunted house attraction in Niagara Falls.
It’s roughly a 15 minute walk-through attraction that preys on each visitor’s fears and phobias. 15 minutes! That’s a long time folks to be in a constant nail-biting state of paranoia!
Nightmares Fear Factory
5631 Victoria Ave
Niagara Falls, ON
Go here to get directions.
As the story goes…
The haunted house is built on the site of the once industrious Cataract Coffin Factory where eccentric proprietor Abraham Mortimer dedicated every waking hour to surveying the progress of his domain.
At night, the old man was tormented and taunted by young hooligans. Abraham would chase the riff-raff from their pranks and dares. They always laughed at his threats… until one fateful night Abraham confronted a rowdy group of thrill-seekers. In the ensuing struggle, a stack of solid oak coffins overturned, and Abraham was crushed to death!
The guilty ran off and were never apprehended for their part in the gruesome murder.
Soon after the funeral, Abraham Mortimer’s coffin was found unearthed and empty!
To this day it is said, he walks the halls for revenge on those who dare trespass on his beloved, and now abandoned factory.
The haunted house is so scary that…
visitors can yell a safety word – “Nightmares” – if they can’t handle the nightmare no longer. They are escorted out but not before given a “Chicken Card” which gives them a free ticket if they muster the courage to return in the future.
But don’t take my word for it. Just check out the photos below taken at the moment of fright from real shots caught on a hidden camera!
Visitors wander around in complete darkness, go across a shaky bridge, a tunnel and a room where walls close in. The picture is snapped right when they appear upon the frightful scene.
There are TONS and TONS of photos that can be viewed on their site (and all over the net for that matter), but here are just a ‘handful’ of some of the ones we liked. However, before we start to enjoy some photos of fright of the hilarious kind, I just want to ask one question:
Men. Why are you always hiding behind the women?
“Some of these people are survivors and have lived to tell what they see inside Nightmares Fear Factory. Others, joined the more than 120,000 who have chickened out and have not made it all the way through.”
Someone braved it alone??? (⊙.⊙(☉_☉)⊙.⊙)
Been here before?
That’s it! We’re Outta Here!
