Thank you for visiting Salt Lake City’s only haunted, haunted house...and one of the best attractions in the state, country and world (buzzfeed.com, USA Today, Travel Channel, Ghost Adventures, Coaster Nation, Horror Find, Fright Find, UTHauntedHouses.com & more)!

All customers, staff and property entrants must have a completed waiver, and agree to all binding expectations, when redeeming their ticket, prior to entrance. Individuals not in compliance of these expectations jeopardize not just their own eviction, but their entire group.
Salt Lake Fear Factory (SLFF) Haunted House is a large, historic, old cement factory dating back to the late 1800’s, that has long since been abandoned ...until we re-opened its doors. While massive sized historic buildings and haunted attractions are fun, they can pose dangers to visitors. The owners, operators and management therefore require visitors to sign this release.
THANK YOU for your loyalty, dedication and support to keep this unique property in Salt Lake City alive, valued, and fun for generations to come. We greatly appreciate our many loyal fans. THANK YOU!
