Come get the hands-on experience that will change your life."

Hmmm...sounds innocent enough. But have you SEEN their "faculty"? They're highly questionable at best. So what's the worst? You don't want to know.

They promise a "hands-on experience that will change your life. We quite agree. You will become an EVEN HAPPIER HAUNTER after you see what these rascals have up their sleeves! THEY NEVER LET US DOWN. (See previous years reviews & "Other MICH")

THIS HAUNT CAN NOT BE GIVEN A STAR RATING - THE TERROR IS NOT IMAGINARY - YOU WILL BE FORCED TO CLIMB AND CRAWL FOR YOUR LIFE!

ZIOPTIS 1999 rating WOW!!! We took a peek in 2001 and it looks like they're at it again! This house defies conventional ratings. You've all heard stories, mostly legend, about haunted houses that are truly frightening and/or difficult to get through. Well, this one REALLY DOES fit that description! If you are looking for the ultimate challenge WE DARE YOU to try this one!

When we went in 1999 my companion didn't even make it past the 1st obstacle because of her high- heeled boots, leaving me totally alone to fend for myself. And they taunted her for about 20 minutes before letting her out of a totally dark room. I still can't believe I made it through - I was battered and bruised with torn pants and shirt by the end!

Expect to CRAWL about 1/2 way through in pitch black. Occasionally, a slot in the wall would open up and you would see a tiny red flashing light offering a glimmer of hope and then BANG, it was slammed shut! If you decide to attempt this one, wear jeans and tennis shoes only. A grueling test for only the exceptionally brave and physically fit few - I'M NOT KIDDING!!!

NOT IN THE FEAR FINDER. WE PERSONALLY DROVE HERE TO MAKE SURE IT'S OPEN IN 2003. WE DARE YOU TO GO!!!

STATUS UNKNOWN FOR 2004

THEY ARE BACK IN 2005 AND ALSO HAVE A PAINTBALL BASED ATTRACTION "DEMON HOUSE" - WE DARE YOU TO GO!!!

NOT OPEN IN 2006 TO OUR KNOWLEDGE. NOT LISTED IN THE FEAR FINDER OR HAUNT GUIDE. WE WILL CALL THEM OR DRIVE BY THEIR SITE SOON.

OPEN IN 2008!!! ONLY FOR THE TRULY BRAVE, WE ARE NOT KIDDING.

OPEN IN 2009, GO IF YOU DARE. I had an experience and a HALF here! (see "Wayne Cty" archieves)

GONE BUT DEFINITELY NOT FORGOTTEN!

(269) 344-2001 or (269) 343-7777 or www.phobiahouse.com

2002 write-up:

It's a relatively new effort - this is their 4th year. 8000 square feet, walk around characters and magician when lines are long. The creator of this haunt has been a supplier to the haunt industry since 1974! "It's a mixture of phobias and traditional haunt scares" says their promo.

INSANE CLOWN POSSE WILL APPEAR AT THIS ATTRACTION ON THURSDAY, OCTOBER 24, 2002! They are scheduled to appear from 8 pm - 12 midnite as performers in the haunt. We understand their Indianapolis appearance WAS cut short. No music or autographs, but this should be a blast!

2003 write-up:

It's a new location this year. And they've been so successful that they started a Phobia House in Miami, Florida this year! (see SOUTHERN UNITED STATES listings) This is a tour guided haunt open LATE. If you get a ticket by 11:30 pm you WILL get to go, even if it takes until 3 am the way it did recently! The operator of this haunt has a very unique, positive approach to the haunt industry – how refreshing!

2002 review:

Several Detroit area haunt operators told us this is the coolest haunt in Michigan, and I must say we agree! The entrance façade is an EXACT REPLICA of a real haunted house in Grand Rapids that scared the show producer and his friends when they were kids. This is in a large warehouse – lots of chamo-netting gives a rustic feel. 3 large mausoleums in the indoor waiting area suddenly open up and 3 groups of dancers perform a clever dance routine with instrumental music. Tons of awesome gags and illusions and the biggest 3-D display by Stu Smith we've ever seen! 2001 was their first year – over 30,700 attended!! We can't wait to see what they do in 2003!

2003 review:

This haunt was unfairly hindered this year from delivering the show we KNOW they are capable of, not from the actors or performances, but from the limited space available to them. Half of the building was being prepped for a Christmas show. The grandious giant feel is gone, and it seemed like all were being rushed thru. But still they managed to pull off some really clever, wild stuff that is the essence of what haunt fans crave. We plan to go again in 2004 and have confidence they will blow us away!

2004 review:

Mausoleums are back, and no Christmas show preparations to contend with this time, thank goodness! Massive amounts of great visuals and wacked out actors and crazy scenarios to WOW you! Also has a photo opportunity before the exit so you can PROVE to your friends you're brave enough to hang with ghouls.

APPEARS IN FF FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 2014.
