Updated for 2017: Can You Actually has compiled a list of some of the five most extreme haunted houses in the world that the average person wouldn’t ever want to check out.
From being restrained, to physically abused, these aren’t just haunted houses, they’re basically torture houses… And they’ll have you running for your life.
There are a few extreme haunted houses around the country that will test you both psychologically and physically, and below are the five best.
1. Freakling Brothers: The Victim Experience (18+)
The Freakling Bros Horror Show is home to one of the most well-known and extremely realistic haunted houses in the world. Located in Las Vegas, Nevada, the show is one of the most traumatic haunted houses you’ll ever experience.
Dubbed “The Victim Experience,” (currently on hiatus for 2016, will return in 2017) this horrifying ordeal exposes you, the victim, to hellish scenes that are psychological, emotional, and sensory driven.

2. ScareHouse: The Basement (18+)
Scarehouse’s “The Basement” is another extreme haunted attraction for the most daring of patrons. From high voltage effects to security screenings before you enter, this place is definitely not for the faint of heart. “You will be touched, restrained, and hooded. You will be tormented, challenged, and scared out of your mind,” warns their website.

3.. Haunted Hoochie At Dead Acres in Pataskala, Ohio (18+)
As their website claims, Haunted Hoochie at Dead Acres offers their patrons a “full sensory assault.” They take you by the throat and drag you down their rabbit hole of horrors that’ll get your heart pounding. They’ll make you wish you never agreed to enter in the first place.

4. Blackout / Hell in the Armory (18+)
Blackout not only ranks at the top for most disturbing, but also most terrifying. This year for Halloween, Blackout is teaming up with Hell In The Armory: Escape, within San Francisco’s most haunted building, The Armory.
Once you enter the room you have twenty minutes to escape, but be careful you’re not alone and every action has a consequence.
This place is pretty extreme, but don’t take it from me just have a look at this Vice article.

5. McKamey Manor: The Chamber (Must be 21 or older)
This is not your average haunted house… it’s literally a walk through one of your most horrific nightmares; the type of nightmare you’re glad you’ve awoken from.
Formerly located in San Diego, California, McKamey Manor Horror House is the most extreme, interactive haunted house on the planet due to its realistic props, and even that’s putting it lightly. Grown men and those seeking extreme thrills have yet to make it through the entire ordeal, some even leaving in tears.
