    As someone who’s been involved with the haunted attraction industry for more than 20 years now… I have to say I can’t support these things. It’s not just that they’re ‘not for me’… I mean, centrifugal rides aren’t for me, but if someone wants to be vigorously shaken until they vomit, that’s their choice, I wouldn’t say a word to them (except maybe ‘please face the other direction first’).

    These ‘super extreme horror experiences’… largely McKamey but there’s others… go far enough beyond the parameters of even the best haunted attractions that I think it’s just a miracle that so far no one’s died or been maimed yet. Oh, sure, they make them sign a waiver but the first time someone gets carted to the ER, that piece of paper is going to be worth exactly ‘bup’ and ‘kis’, and the repercussions are very likely to lash back against ALL haunted attractions, even ones that aren’t so far off the edge you can’t see it with binoculars. After all, waivers may halt a civil case (maybe, after all someone could argue they were misled purposefully), but if someone dies, I don’t think the cops are going to take ‘but see, he signed a paper saying I could do it!’ as a valid alibi.

    No, no one has been hospitalized yet (that I’m aware of). But I daresay it’s only a matter of time, and as there’s more and more of these, and ‘extreme’ gets the bar moved farther out, someone’s going to be careless or have an accident, or even just ‘get a little carried away’, and someone else that was just looking for a cheap thrill is going to end up on a stretcher. And then the lashback will take HHN and Knott’s, and Dark Harbor, and whatever other haunt of your choice with them.
