I work at a haunted house attraction and always get guests from NZ who tell me about FF, so when I was visiting QT I knew what was #1 on my list! We pre-booked through the website and arrived half an hr early but it was empty so the boys let us begin early which was awesome. I had a... More

This was just amazing. I don't usually get easily scared, but thought it would be fun to take my easily scared girlfriend through it after reading some positive reviews. I have to say this did not dissapoint. I was laughing and screaming the whole way through. I won't give anything away but I will say this was genuinely the scariest... More

Having recently travelled a bit around Europe I have been to the London and Amsterdam Dungeons. Although those were great. This was better. I actually felt scared. Of course I was following the red dots and I'm a bit short so my boyfriend was directing me a bit. However it was definitely the best experience and some 10/10 photos came... More

Visited with my husband. We were the only guests. The chap on the desk was very friendly and we were enjoying our 'fear' experience. However half way through the 'actor' doing the scary voices, the jump outs and the gentle trappings suddenly said 'don't punch me'. My husband and I were astonished. We are middle aged boring parents who wouldn't... More

Hello DDBundle, I have investigated the points raised in your review and spoken to all members of staff who were on duty at the time of your visit. Your husband did indeed jump at one point, which is totally to be expected. The member of staff accompanying you merely asked that you be careful not to hit out, for his... More

It was fun but unlike their recommendation that you allow 30 minutes, I don't see how you could take more than 20 max. We were in and out in 10 minutes which made the pricey $30 questionable. Disappointing props, it was 99% pitch black with simply noises.

Hi Quinnandherbackpack, Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. Here at Fear Factory we like to keep our guests permanently in suspense as they wander our dark hallways - and most people do find themselves laughing and screaming for 20 - 30 minutes, as our actors interact with them. Experience tells us you may well prefer more... More

Took my cousin and boyfriend as in was my cousins last day in the south island before going home to the north island. I was in the middle and absolutely loved it. Laughed many times also screamed many times. All three of us couldn't stop talking about it. Have already started planning a trip up to do it again. Thanks... More

Came here today with my girlfriend. Scariest experience ever. Literally. Today I also did a bungy swing upside-down, and this was scarier. A fantastic experience. Definitely worth it. 15 out of 10.
