With Halloween around the corner, haunted house tours will be a full swing in the lead-up. However, you're only taking this particular tour if you're extremely brave, impervious to pain or you don't mind the threat of death.

The tour lasts a ridiculous 10 hours and spans two states. Yes, you begin in Summertown, Tennessee, and finish in Huntsville, Alabama - that's if you make it to the end (no one has yet).

Participants must be 21 and older (or at least 18 with parental consent) and are required to pass a background check, a doctor's mental/physical test, and a drug test. They must also be insured, obviously.


There is a bright side to all of this. Owner Russ McKamey will hand you a cool $20,000 if you finish the tour; unfortunately (fortunately, really) no one ever has. McKamey told WFLA-TV he records every attempt of the physically demanding and gruesome experience and posts them online for his own protection. Contestants are also required to sign a waiver that is 40 pages long.

"You get a lot of people who think it's going to be easy money," Khris Smith, a volunteer for McKamey's tours who works remotely, says. Smith tried out as a contestant years ago but he didn't make it past the waiver.

"I read it and I quit," he said. "I got to the last page and turned around and went home.... There's so much. You have to pull out your own teeth, there's a chance of getting a tattoo, a chance of your fingernails getting pulled out. It's really overwhelming. There's a chance of death. Accidents do happen."

Smith would try to more times before joining McKamey's team. His second attempt saw him tap out after he was buried alive in a wooden coffin and his third ended after he suffered a panic attack during a hypnosis session.

We would urge you not to do this and that's why we aren't providing any directions. If you feel you're up to the task, though, find it yourself.
