Do you dare to FACE your Fears?? Experience waves of excitement and a great big hit of adrenaline as you venture through the Nautical Nightmare that has taken Wellington by storm!

Fear Factory Wellington is like nothing you've experienced before, set right in the heart of Wellington City.

The experience begins with a fascinating insight into Wellingtons' haunted history and the abandoned settler vessel legend. Those who are brave enough will then descend below the deck of the HMS Wayfarer into the haunted hallways below where live actors await those who have dared to pass through the infamous Red Door.

If at any time you want to leave, scream "NIGHTMARES" or "I CHICKEN OUT" and you'll be bought back to the exit early. Just know that those who chicken out will be added to the number on the ever-growing "Chicken Counter"!

Described by many as one of the best experiences of their lives, grab a friend or someone you trust, take a deep breath and get ready to expect nothing but the unexpected!

Give these actors an Oscar - best time ever!

Staff were friendly and informative. We weren't sure what to expect but the whole experience was really well done. We laughed, we screamed. We had all the jump scares. The price was good. An amazing time.

Lots of Laughs

We had so much fun, great experience from start to finish. My two friends were entertainingly frightened and I got a few frights too. I think the staff were tame with us, so I could imagine either the right group they’d go all out.
