This Haunted House Is so Intense They Make You Sign a Waiver

On today's edition of #nightmareshit, there's a haunted house that is supposedly so intense, they won't even let you in until you've signed a waiver releasing the place from responsibility if you're traumatized, injured, scarred for life or otherwise messed up by what happens inside. 

It's called The 17th Door, and once you're inside there's no way of getting out — unless you know the safe word "mercy," according to Newsweek. 

The Tustin, California haunt has reportedly had about 350 people use the word since it opened its doors for the first time about two weeks back. 

It takes more than 30 minutes to make it through the house's 17 rooms, making it one of the longest haunted house experiences in the U.S. According to the FAQ on their website, "the actors may grab you and some things may fall on top of you. You may also get wet."

The back story is that once you enter you're inside the house you've entered the mind of Paula, a severely disturbed college student who is apparently losing her shit.

From the official site: 

Come walk with Paula for over 30 minutes through The University and its seventeen rooms of psychological terror… A place so sinister that the personal demons of her past take pig form and roam the campus waiting to haunt her. In this decrepit institution, where evil breeds unchecked, go along with Paula as her life falls hard and fast down a spiral of torture: uncontrollable purging, excessive abuse and bodily harm. Try to calm your senses and gather your courage as you progress from room to room because under the disturbed and watchful eye of this monstrous school, each space tests your emotions and endurance more than the last.
At least they're keeping it indoors.

This is an old house in DeFuniak SPrings. I lived south of that town when I was a kid.  I'd pass this house twice a day during the week, on the way to school.. The other kids on the bus said it was haunted, that there were cold spots in the octagon  area, doors would open and close, etc...  I loved the house, wished it was mine.   It was yellow back then.  The first episode of Millennium  took me back to this house,  because it was the first yellow house I'd ever seen, and boy this is some house!  It sits up higher than this picture portrays. It's on a bit of a  hill from the highway I'd pass it by on..   The street it's listed on  is normally where the view in a picture is from,  less dramatic.   They call it Sunbright Manor .

Neato!  We have a place called Ozone Pizza and pub. It's in the basement floor of the old Sacred Heart hospital. They say it's haunted.  The ghost of a nun taps people on the shoulder as they are going to the restroom. Ate there, used the restroom, no tapping!   Pizza was awesome though.
