Is the 17th Door in California the scariest haunted house in the world? According to their owners, over a quarter of their paying customers beg for “mercy” and ask to be taken out before they can finish the 30-minute, 17 room tour.
All visitors are given a ‘safe word’ when they enter. They’re asked to sign a waiver form. Then, the doors are locked and the actors are given free rein.
The tour takes visitors through the mind of a college student named Paula as she struggles with depression, drug addiction, and suicidal thoughts. Tickets run from $21 to $35 a person leading up to Halloween, and hundreds of horror fans are expected to attend this year.
Yikes! As if we needed any more convincing to stay away, here’s the creepy advertising trailer for the house.
