The Haunted House That Requires A Doctor’s Note & 40 Page Waiver
Marc Gordon - November 7, 2019

This haunted house will pay you $20,000 if you make it to the end…but chances are you won’t. Those who dare enter have to sign a 40-page waiver, make a safe word, and get a doctor’s note to even get through the door. Basically, you don’t want to even think about it. McKamey Manor in Summertown, Tennessee is the scariest haunted house in the entire country. The owner, Russ, takes that title very seriously. He’ll even offer you $20,000 if you make it through. According to the internet, no one has yet to succeed.


The requirements alone are strict and start to get your stomach-churning.

  • Be 21 and above, or 18-20 with parent’s approval.
  • Completed “Sports Physical” and doctor’s letter stating you are physically and mentally cleared.
  • Pass a background check.
  • Be screened via Facebook FaceTime or phone.
  • Proof of medical insurance.
  • Sign a detailed 40-page waiver.
  • Pass a portable drug test on the day of the show.

McKamey also requires guests to watch a two-hour film that shows every person who has ever entered the haunted house. The movie highlights all of them quitting the tour midway. They even warn guests that they really don’t want to do this! But if you do decide to enter, all Russ asks for is a 50-pound bag of dog food that he donates to an animal shelter. But the emotional stakes are incredibly high.


Apparently, Russ tailor’s your experience based on your own fears. The entire tour is filmed. Some people have to eat cockroaches, be buried alive, fight to survive Saw-like contraptions, plus tasers, paintball guns, and whips. Yeah, no thanks!
