Petition to shut down ‘extreme haunted house’

A haunted house in Tennessee is sparking concerns after 31,000 people signed a petition in hopes to get it to shut down.

The haunted house requires participants to get a doctor’s note and sign a 40-page waiver before they enter, according to NBC News.

The petition from calls on Tennessee and Alabama state officials to “shut down McKamey Manor,” which it says is a “torture chamber under disguise.”

NBC News states, “They do screenings to find the weakest, most easily manipulated people to do the ‘haunt’. … Mckamey Manor is a shame to all haunted houses, and needs to be shut down,” the petition started by a person named Frankie Towery reads.

Towery tells NBC News participants have been waterboarded, “forced to eat things” and have had duct tape wrapped around their heads. The petition calls for both locations of the haunted house — in Summertown, Tennessee and Huntsville, Alabama — closed.

“It’s literally just a kidnapping & torture house. Some people have had to seek professional psychiatric help and medical care for extensive injuries. I propose that all locations where this is happening to be shut down immediately,” he wrote.

As of Tuesday morning, over 31,100 people had signed the petition. The goal is to reach 35,000 signatures.
