There are two types of people, people who love haunted houses and people who will never step foot into one. The most horrific haunted house in the United States, is known as McKamey Manor. Some history on this haunted house is that it originated in San Diego by Russ McKamey. He originally had it on his property, but now McKamey Manor is located in Lawrence County, Tennessee. There are also different locations of several McKamey Manor haunted houses. This haunted house requires the participant to be 21 years of age or older, or 18-20 with guardians’ consent. They also require a completed sports physical, a background check provided by MM, screening via FB face time or phone, proof of medical insurance, a signed detailed 40 paged waiver, and a drug test on the day of the show. McKamey Manor lasts eight to ten hours, but no guest has made it all the way through. The prize to make it through this house is $20,000 but deducts $500 every time a participant fails a challenge or uses profanity. During the tour, many harmful things can happen to the patron. When interviewed, Evelynn Baker replied, “Even if I had no money, I would never step foot in that haunted house ever.” On the other hand, when asked, Taylor Rhine answered, “If someone convinced me enough, I would do it, but there is a 100% chance I would not complete it.” Haunted houses are not for everyone, but if a person loves an extreme adrenaline rush and a lot of money then this might be the place for them.
