“Worth doing once!”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

This was such a fun and scary haunted house, definitely worth the effort to try to make it through - which we did!! Got to the end and didn't have to yell NIGHTMARES to get out from being too scared. It was definitely scary but was really fun too. The photos you get at the end are priceless and we loved ours, was a lot of fun, definitely have to go here at least once.

“I knew what it was going to be but was scared anyway, lol”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

I am a cynic and went in knowing it was all fake but the knowing went out the window when you are in there. It is funny how that happens. At the same time, I also thought it was a great laugh and best when shared with a few friends.

“Best haunted house in Niagara Falls”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

Yes, it is the best haunted house in Niagara Falls...but considering all of the others are mediocre at best, that isn't saying much. Though if you really want to go to a haunted house, go to the one that tries the hardest. Nightmares Fear Factory does just that. It has live actors and plays on many fears/phobias such as claustrophobia (fear of enclosed spaces) and achluophobia (fear of darkness). I liked the atmosphere, the gift shop was pretty cool, but with so much bragging about how many people chickened out, I was expecting something scarier than this.

“Refreshingly Interesting & Funny”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

This was a great treat. Not very scary, but I do not scare easily. There are $2 off coupons online. Parts of it were funny and the best part is when they take your picture by "frightening" you with a sudden light and loud haunting sound. It is interesting (don't want to give out too much info) in that they do a few things that are unique. In general, it is worth your time.
