Fear Factory, Queenstown

4.6
#2 of 15 in Fun & Games in Queenstown
Summon your courage and take a tour of the haunted hallways and rooms at Fear Factory. One step inside the dark, creepy corridors is bound to send a chill down even a skeptic's spine, and by the end of the tour your throat might be sore from screaming. For those not brave enough to go through with the journey, there's always the option to "chicken out." At that point one of the house's friendlier ghouls will show up and escort you directly to the exit. While this haunted house is generally geared toward mature visitors, those under the age of 15 can come in if accompanied by an adult. Do exercise your best judgment, however, since young children might find the experience a little too frightening.

    Thought this would be childish but was by far the scariest thing we have ever done. The actors were amazing.  more »

  • IT SO MUCH FUN!!! We arrived and a guy had just chickened out with tears in his eyes so we didn't know whether to continue walking in or turn a round and exit lol! Went with my 2 sisters and we surprisingly survived. It was actually very scary we were holding each other the way through with eyes shut of course haha! Had to take turns in the front lol! It was a funny and great experience altogether though :)
  • What a great half hour activity in the heart of Queenstown. I went with my Dad and his partner, and we had everything from screams, laughter, and an accidental headbutt before leaving the Fear Factory absolutely sweating! It's definitely the most intense haunted house experience I've ever done, and the cast were excellent at picking up on fear and names while we were shuffling round. Top marks!
  • Do it!! I screamed so much that I probably won't be able to speak tomorrow but it was worth it! Although I am not sure if my heart will recover, it is still beating way to fast...
  • This was so much fun. Can highly recommend.
  • I paid 35 bucks to walk around a dark building to only follow rights and see nothing... a few people grabbing your leg, didn't see anyone dressed up, not scary at all, was out in 15 mins..... waste of money

Where to stay in Queenstown

To enjoy views of Lake Wakatipu in a luxury setting, try one of the many boutique and long-established hotels of the downtown area. As a resort town, Queenstown also offers a range of more modest accommodations, ideal for adventurers, backpackers, and those eager to spend more time outside than in. These come in the form of hostels, rental apartments, campsites, and suburban motels. A good local bus service provides connections between the downtown and suburban areas, and out to the surrounding attractions, and many accommodations offer package tours.
