The Victim Experience by the Freakling Bros. joins an ever-expanding list of extreme haunted houses. Much like the infamous and creepy haunted houses McKamey Manor and Blackout, the experience seeks to push participants to their psychological and physical limits. Because the experience only lasts an average of 30 minutes, this acts as a great starting point for people who wish to discover if they could withstand eight hours at McKamey Manor. To get through an experience like those put on by Freakling Bros. without using any haunted house safe words requires a ton of bravery and a willingness to submit to the unthinkable
The experience provides a personalized haunted house that completely changes annually and incorporates minor tweaks for each ticket holder. Only eight people per night may enter this haunted house in Nevada, and everyone must face their fears alone. Tickets cost $295 in 2017, but this rarely ever prevents the show from selling out almost a month in advance. Every participant must sign a waiver and a non-disclosure agreement. Despite this, previous participants leaked some of the most insane details and spoilers.
The actors unleash a continual stream of verbal abuse to start, launching lewd comments and nefarious statements in your direction whether you want them or not. But because Freakling goes the full nine yards, several instances of simulated - and not-so-simulated - assault also occur.
If you have a pacemaker or any other medical device or condition that doesn't pair well with electric shocks, the experience may not be for you. Every ticket holder can and will receive repeated electric shocks. At certain points, you will find yourself tied up, held in place, and shocked on your bare skin while your head gets forced into a plastic bag. This leaves behind telltale scorch marks that take weeks to fully heal. The electrocution portion of the haunt doesn't just happen in one area, either; willing participants can expect to face these shocks several times during their haunt tour.
The experience's website makes it clear participants face simulated assault. Several previous participants report getting an adult toy shoved down their throats multiple times during the experience.
Does the idea of letting someone slap you silly get your adrenaline going? Here, getting punched, suffocated, slapped, and gagged is a typical part of the show that can lead to numerous wounds. If you care little for physical harm, you should avoid the experience. At least one previous participant reported leaving with a black eye.
