    Thousands sign petition to shut down controversial haunted house: ‘A torture chamber under disguise’

    https://news.yahoo.com/thousands-sig...161003483.html


    A haunted house that lasts 10 hours and requires its visitors to fill out a 40-page waver is now the subject of a petition calling it a "torture chamber" that needs to be shut down.

    McKamey Manor, which stretches from Summertown, Tenn., to Huntsville, Ala., has drawn national interest for years due to its extreme conditions: Attendees can reportedly be subjected to having their fingernails pulled off or even getting a tattoo, according to one volunteer employee.

    The circumstances inside are reportedly so intense that owner Russ McKamey has promised a $20,000 reward for anyone who completes the tour — a feat he says no one has ever accomplished.

    "Not your typical 'Boo' Haunted House. You've been warned!" the house's website states.

    But now McKamey Manor's radical reputation is being challenged. A Change.org petition — which calls on both the Tennesee and Alabama state senates to permanently close the attraction — has earned more than 63,000 signatures since launching five days ago.

    The petition, titled "Shut down McKamey Manor," claims the haunted house is actually a "torture chamber under disguise" that "uses loopholes to get out of being arrested."

    Seems inane. Is there a single thing happening in there which the visitors don't consent to? If not, then fuck these whiny losers.
