People are revolting against McKamey's Manor now, last week they were news about how crazy they are, now people are saying just how bad this is.
Hopefully something's done about it, the owner of the "haunted house" is a nutjob, he needs to be shut down.

Full Title...
"SUMMERTOWN, Tenn. - McKamey Manor describes itself as “an extreme haunted experience” where guests are promised the most terrifying and mentally exhausting 10+ hoursof their lives. But now, a petition calling it “a torture chamber under disguise” has reached over 40,000 signatures in a bid to shut the attraction down."

[Here's the story, I can't post Fox's video on here, if anyone knows how, let me know...]

Russ McKamey owns and operates multiple locations of the extreme haunted house in Summertown, Tennessee, and Huntsville, Alabama, where he requires visitors to fulfill a long list of requirements, including a 40-page waiver and the completion of a physical exam. The price of admission: a bag of dog food.

RELATED: McKamey Manor: Haunted house requires 40-page waiver, offers patrons $20K if they can handle 10+ hours

Visitors must also follow strict guidelines which include no cussing, drinking, smoking, running, eating, or touching the actors or props. While a safe word allegedly promises a prompt exit from the intense experience, the petition called “Shut down McKamey Manor” claims otherwise.

The petition alleges that McKamey specifically targets people he deems “most easily manipulated.”

“Previously no safe word was allowed, he changed that but there’s been reports that the torture continues even when people repeat their safe word for several minutes,” the petition reads.

One man was allegedly “tortured” so badly, it wasn’t until the workers thought they had “killed” him that they finally decided to stop.

Some visitors of McKamey Manor have taken to Reddit to express their fear and frustration, warning future patrons against going through with the experience, calling it “torture porn.”

A petition has been created to shut down McKamey Manor, calling it "torture under disguise."

One Reddit user wrote that the reason McKamey doesn’t accept any money is because “he only desires the footage of what he puts his ‘customers’ through. His payment is having footage of people crying, throwing up, having mental breakdowns and begging for him to let them go.“

The user added that McKamey has admitted to exclusively employing people with “touchy pasts” including some with felonies for violent behavior, claiming that the employees gain some form of gratification out of harming people.

Another user leaked a portion of the alleged waiver that apparently says that visistors risk "death, stroke, traumatic brain injury," and dozens of other injuries on the tour.

So far, McKamey says no one has completed the tour, even though he promises to pay $20,000 to anyone who can sit through roughly 10 hours of this real-life nightmare.

The haunted attraction’s original location in San Diego, California closed down and eventually moved to one of its locations in Tennessee where the new attraction didn’t appear to be a favorite of local law enforcement or residents.

The San Diego Union-Tribune reported that in 2017, Lawrence County sheriff’s deputies in Tennessee responded to a screaming woman being dragged by two men from a car into the newly established McKamey Manor.

The deputies quickly learned that the abduction was staged, but incidents like these have made the local community uncomfortable, and authorities have been working to shut down the operation ever since.

While the website for the tour claims that only people who pass an extensive medical background test are permitted, “10 minutes of getting duct tape wrapped around your head, forced to eat things, be waterboarded & forced underwater,” is something writers of the petition allege cross a line.

This guy is seriously nuts, but if people want to go, let them go. Who cares enough to start a petition. (40,000 people apparently, but I can see all those Karen's now.)

the entire farce s utter bollox

its not a " haunted house "

the entire premise can be parsed down to :

we can do what ever we want - you cannot do anything

It seems that this is just an excuse for this guy to fulfill some violent sexual fantasy. It’s pretty disgusting.

No it should not be shut down. Nobody is forced to do it.

If they sign this:

and still do it, they are dumb! Maybe the gene pool needs some cleaning.

btw.. I read up about this place. Many people have tried to sue him after, and they all LOST, something about that 40 page waiver! hmmmm

I just think that there should really be something that is lawful that prohibits this sort of thing.
just because a person is old enough doesn't mean they have all of their 'noggin matter'.

To me, it's just not a positive thing in any city/town, that is not something that a town could be proud to have.
Hey! I LOVE Halloween, it is MY holiday, but this is not even remotely Halloween-ish.

The City Health Department 'should be' on this, them shoving people's heads/faces into that dirty looking water is enough for them to shut it down. (I would hope)
Now, with flesh eating disease, this shouldn't be tolerated. I really doubt that that bacteria is present though, but still, even though it is rare, it should be investigated by the Health Department.

Yeah, I agree that some people are stupid enough to try this, but they shouldn't suffer just because they are stupid, nobody really wins in that.

We can't protect everyone from everything. This is entertainment. Remember that show fear factor. Some very similar stuff. Eating worms, being in a box with spiders etc.
As far as pain and gore, there are people addicted to cosmetic surgery, to getting a tattoo etc.. Some of them permanently disfigure themselves. That's not illegal.

Some people just have some sick and twisted fantasies and/or fetishes and this is right up their alley. What was that movie a while back about that company that would kidnap you and torture or scare you, etc. guy paid them to do it? I can't remember. Anyway... people are going to do what they want to do and he's smart enough to have them sign a waiver of liability. They are stupid or willing enough to sign it. Who gives a #.

Yeah, that's what we need, more laws, particularly people's personal morality codified into law.

I wouldn't want these sickos in my town, those who run it or those who are actually interested in going there.

It's pretty sick, they pull your fingernails out, shave your head, make you eat vomit, cut you, bury you alive, burn you, dunk your head in putrid water.

Damn.

Why are the willing visitors complaining about it? They signed up for it.

All I meant was that there are 'slow' people out there, ones that can't make intelligent decisions, that is the kind of person that kind of needs protecting, not a bragging, drunk adult that wants to try and be famous. Adults that are of sound mind can do this stuff all they want, but I know that we've all known good people that weren't dealt a full deck that don't need to try this.
For any reason, whether they are goaded into it, or they just make bad decisions sometimes.

At any rate, we all think that we know best, I just thought that it was a very unusual story last week when I posted it, now the story has grown somewhat.
The good thing, I have not read even one comment on YouTube or here that thinks that this is a good thing, I mean, a positive thing, it's all been negative.

The real point is, I guess, if it were really a haunted house they would have already lost that $20,000., probably, I mean, trying to scare someone for 10 hours is very hard.
Torturing someone, and it being administered by sadistic idjits, that is much easier, and it takes either a very crazy person, or a strong person that last and win.

Because people think they are tough guys but they really aren't. Talk is cheap. Most people don't even want to touch raw meat anymore. The real reason people are doing it, is they think they will get 20K at the end.

The thing is, the way it's set up, they won't. I think the place is setup so anyone that gets close is tortured as close to death as possible, so there really is no way for anyone to truly collect the prize.
Again, people are dumb.

Are there not already laws restricting someone from causing bodily harm to others?

How in the world could this place get away with pulling fingernails out? I don't believe it.

Or waterboarding?

Torture IS still against the law, is it not?

Is it against the law for people to use chainsaws, or drink excessively, or become obese? All those things are risky and may cause bodily harm.

those things are NOT against the law. The things I mentioned are against the law. So I really do not understand your point.

I personally do not think any new laws need creating. Seems torture and maiming of people is already covered.
