Nyctophobia is the irrational fear of the dark, most common among children and young people. It is one of the most common phobias, and can manifest itself in a variety of symptoms, resulting in everything from shortness of breath to excessive sweating to dry mouth to a complete loss of reason. The unseen can provide a fantastic canvas for the imagination, as the threat of unknown dangers weighs heavy on the mind. It is said by many professionals that the first step in overcoming one’s fears is to confront them, face to face. To that end, Fort Worth’s Cutting Edge Haunted House may provide the most extensive therapy available…

Cutting Edge, located in a 100-year-old abandoned 235,000 square foot meat packing plant, received the Guinness World Record for “World’s Largest Walk Through Haunted House” in 2009. At a total length of 2,261.08 feet from entrance to exit, the average walk through the house takes approximately 55 minutes – a virtual eternity for the hapless visitor suffering from nyctophobia. Surrounded by actual meat packing equipment delivering bodies to their demise, Cutting Edge plunges brave souls into the longest journey through the dark they’re likely to find. A daunting task for anyone, let alone those with an overpowering fear of the terror the blackness brings.

Voted among the “Top 20 Haunts” by Fangoria Magazine, Cutting Edge has been called “The longest adrenaline rush money can buy!” by the Denton Record Chronicle for good reason.
