29 Haunted House Workers On The Truly Terrifying Things That Have Happened On The Job

17. Customers said disgusting sexual things to the actresses

One incident I will always remember is when a huge group of men came round, maybe about 30-35 years old, definitely drunk, saying things to me like, “You’re disgusting and you deserve to be punished.” “We’re gonna bend you over and brutally fuck you up the arse.” “You’re so fit, I’m definitely gonna bang you.” “You little slag, look at you. I am going to fuck you right here, right now.” “Filthy whore.” “I bet she loves it up the arse, let’s give it a go.” I was on my own and I was terrified, I felt sick, and I didn’t know what to do. Thankfully one of the other actors came round so nothing happened but it shook me up for a long time -if the other actor didn’t then who knows what might have happened. Things like this not only ruin it for the actors, but it’s not exactly a great experience for the customers either.

18. A man threw his daughter down a hill

I worked at a haunted forest some years back. It had been raining pretty steadily that October, so the trails were pretty muddy and slick. At one point along the trail, a dude with a chainsaw surprised people as they came around a bend before a relatively steep descent. Watched a man throw his daughter to the side of the trail at that point and take off running, then sliding, then rolling.

Seriously, kids. Get a job at a scare place if you have the chance. Getting paid to scare people is fantastic.
