Me and my boyfriend went to the fear factory last weekend. I’m a horror fan in general and really enjoyed the thrill but even my bf who’s normally not into scary things had a lot of fun. The whole team is very nice and motivated and gave us a great time. Since it was the busy easter weekend even the owners were there and helped out their team which i find remarkable. Once you arrive everything is very organized and there’s not much waiting time between arrival and your entry into the actual haunted house. Walking through there is super scary but so much fun at the same time! It really brings you closer to the people you’re going with, haha. My recommendation is just get into it, play the game and allow yourself to be scared and have fun.

Thanks to the whole team for that awesome experience! Can’t wait to check out your new haunted house in Wellington!

Scarier than bungy

Amazing experience although drenched in sweat with hoarse voice afterwards.

My 12yo daughter ‘chickened out” after 1 minute and they allowed me to go back in on my own. Very nice they made this exception.

Definitely the most frightening experience of my life. Think it is much worse going solo.

Raced through the pitch black maze in 11 minutes (meant to take 15-20 as groups would move slower).

Having humans touch you (non aggressively) and jump out at you adds something completely unique and terrifying.

Bungy jumped in the morning but find this more terrifying.

Would highly recommend.

If you want to have the fright and laugh of your life this place is it. My husband teenage son and I did it and they made me go first. It was so creepy I was crying and laughing at the same time. At one stage I wanted to curl up and rock like a baby on the floor. This was definitely worth the money and then to see the video and photos set us off into fits of laughter again. I screamed so loudly the people waiting behind us left. Bloody fun time

Terrifying Fun

We had a family holiday in Queenstown and my husband, brother and I decided it would be great fun to attempt Fear Factory. We succeeded and it was terrifying. An experience of such a different kind. The adrenaline was definitely pumping on completion. The staff were awesome!!

A must do activity in Queenstown!

This is an experience I will never forget. The actors are incredible at what they do, they seem to be very passionate and really know how to scare the bejeebus out of you. The fact that they can put out such a performance with so much energy is really impressive.

Horror fantastic!

I am a horror freak. I love this sort of thing. I’ve done haunted houses many times, but this was one of the best. Adrenalin inducing freak out of the best kind!!
