When was the last time you were really truly scared? We all look for our escapes, enjoying that fear that sends shivers down our spine. But we know when we watch a movie or go to a haunted house, it’s supposed to be a safe environment
Not at the McKamey Manor.
The McKamey Manor offers an experience like no other down in Summertown, Tennessee. It promises an extreme experience that can last up to 10 hours and before you can enter this macabre maze of horror, you have to be medically cleared by a doctor and sign a 40-page waiver.
What’s on that waiver?
When you sign you agree to be shocked, submerged in water, slapped, tied up, shaved and even agree to unwanted dental work.
Owner Russ McKamey even films every attempted trip through the haunt, he says for his own protection, but then posts them online when the person attempting the tour fails, showcasing their humiliation.
This haunt is so extreme that last year there was a report of a woman being kidnapped which brought the police. When they arrived they found a woman shivering beaten and duct-taped in a cellar. But there was little they could do because she signed up for it.
“In 16 years, not one person has been able to get through it without saying ‘I’m done’,” McKamey said.
Despite being controversial for not having a “safe phrase” for a long time, McKamey has advised that there is a “safe phrase” which can be used to end the experience although they dont end it after the phrase. It is a torture chamber The house operates year round, and there is a waiting list of over 24,000 people.
Owner Russ McKamey offers $20,000 to anyone who completes the tour, but says no one ever has. He records each physically demanding and psychologically disturbing tour on video – for his own protection he told WFLA-TV – and then posts them online, showing the participants quitting in humiliation.
