McKamey Manor Creator Wants To Bring Extreme Haunted House To The UK
| Last updated
The creator of McKamey Manor says he wants to bring his extreme haunted house experience to the UK. See what it might look like below:
Russ McKamey runs the most infamous horror tour in the world, with people signing up in their thousands to test themselves against the Navy vet. But not one person has ever been successful.
The experience involves both physical and psychological torture, with the involvement of extreme stunts such as waterboarding, forcing participants to eat and drink unknown substances, and burying them alive.
In the past, thrill-seekers have even left the Tennessee attraction with fewer teeth than they arrived with, having pulled them out themselves in their bid for glory.
And speaking to LADbible, Russ says he is keen to take the Manor across the pond and give Brits the opportunity to see if they can last the course. Though the chances are, they almost certainly can't.
"I would need to have, you know, a partnership type of situation in the UK in order to put something together," he tells us.
"Sure it can happen, but I would have to have financial backing because it's real expensive to put a show on like this.
"I can't bring all these stunts from here to across the pond, you'd have to redesign and rebuild.
"And so there has to be a big backing in order to do something like that, but I'm all for it if it could legally be done without people trying to shut us down before we even begin."
Russ says he actually had a deal in place for a Mckamey Manor TV show in the UK, but that it was pulled at the last minute after 'haters' contacted the production company.
He says: "I almost did. I had an offer just recently for a TV show in the UK.
"It was good to go, solid, it was set. It was going to be a celebrity show where celebrities would go through the version of the Manor but at real locations, like insane asylums or cemeteries. So it was going to be geared to the paranormal.
"We were set and ready to go - it was all done. And then they pulled the plug because the haters got to them.
"Enough of the haters contacted them and scared them into not working with me.
"And that's what the haters do.
"Like, if I have anybody personally in my life, I can't let that be known because they'll contact employers or contact family members they'll do what they can to damage them in order to damage me.
"I mean, it's really disgusting what they do. So yeah, so they got scared and they pulled the plug."
But if the Manor does eventually make its way over to the UK, Russ has one piece of advice for anyone thinking about taking it on: don't.
