Last year at Sloss i was walking through the bug room, and a roach crawled on my face. I freaked out and accidentaly diarrhea'rd in my pants. I was so pissed because i had to finish walking the rest of Sloss for 25 minutes. But it was great.

|slaughter at the sloss
Me and about nine of my friends last summer whent to sloss in april at three oclock in the morning and it was not open because it was summer time. we had all heard that it was really and truely haunted.We tried to open the door but it was locked. we started to walk around the building to find another way in when the door just swung open! For Real! Most of my friends wanted to turn back but i wanted to go forward so they followed. we took a step in and felt a cold breeze which makes no sense because it was summer and there was no airconditioner on in sloss. But we all over looked it. we kept walking till we found a steel stair case. we walked up it and there were three rooms we didnt know which to go in first. until we saw a dim light flickering in the 2nd room.so we automatically went in it was like we were not even thinking somethinng pulled us in almost.then wwe all saw it laying in the corner of the floor mangled it was a girl looking about twelve. wee screamed anf started to run but when we looked back at her for one more glance she was gone. we try not to talk about it because it freaks us all out so much because we all saw her and her disapear. so we know it is real a group of nine we all haver it whitnessed...

|I Havent Been Yet...
Ummm....Im 12, & my stepdad is taking me 2 SFF. (SlauseFrightFurnace, if your retarded.) Im very claustraphobic though. I was reading the trails--- & theres a claustraphobia room! No freakn way...Atrox didnt have that. Oh, & btw- I went when thje dude who playd Jason n the l8st Friday The 13th movie. Atrox looks lessscarier.
In June of 2009, I visited Sloss on research with T.P.R.G. We split up into four teams, and all night long all of the other teams has been experiencing paranormal activity. By the end of the night, we were last in the tunnel. There were 8 of us but, two only lasted 5 minutes into an EVP session. There was one person who was getting feelings and overwhelming visions, and could no long stay down there so another member of our team, escorted her out of the tunnel and calmed her down. In between myself and the person to my left, I felt the presence of someone next to me, taunting me, playing with my hair and the back of my neck. About 8 minutes into the EVP session, we had confirmed paranormal activity but, it was like the spirits were toying with us. Then I looked down to my right, near the entrance and I saw a boy, looking to be about 8 years old, standing there, then he disappeared. About three minutes later a member of the team was getting mad at the spirits for just toying around, so he made the comment, "How many f@!#ing n!**@#s we got in here?" and plain as day you heard 7 beats to the piping and the person to my left was being pushed out of her chair, and let me be clear that she weighs a good 250 pounds. During the time of her being pushed out of her chair, I felt a hand or an arm go through my stomach, pulling and tugging at my insides, like I was being kicked in the gut and a second later, I felt a pair of hands wrapped around my neck, strangling me. I was speechless, I could barely move or breathe. After my teammate who was pushed out of the chair decided to leave, she tugged at my hand and had to pull me up from the chair. The rest of the team stayed down five minutes after we did, then ended the EVP session and returned from the tunnel. The rest of the night I was shaking, I couldn't talk hardly, and my stomach was all knotted up inside. For those of you who are skeptics, you are wrong. Sloss Fright Furnaces is one of the most haunted places I have visited besides the Old Bryce Mental Hospital, in my hometown, Northport, Alabama.

Once we wre walking through sloss furnace and walked through this old abandoned building...I have been a ghost hunter intraining so I wanted to set up.So that night my brother and my dad and I were there then we heard an absolute bloody murder scream.Me and my brother went to see.And there was nothing.So about an hour later we heard it again.So we went back to the hallway and there were about 3 rooms with tags on the doors we heard the scream and I ammediatly knew what room it was in...I turned and saw the slotter room...I almost fainted.We went in and there was nothing in that room at all...we went back in the hallway and heard it in the slotter room again so we went in there and there was blood all over the floor in the middle of the room and I looked up i saw a rope...SAnd I thought people have definantly been murdered and hanged here...After that...We heard a whisper and that whisper said,"It's your turn,or get out!" so after that we left and have never went into an abandoned builing again.

|October 10, 2009
I'm going to sloss saturday with a few friends. i went last year, and had a good time. Sloss isn't really terrifying, but the atmosphere is great. Sloss has a good balance between fun and scary. I've heard many stories about the tunnel. I don't remember that from last year, but I will look for it this year. I hope to have a great time again. The words of Don Vito... "Yo!"

|there are spirits in this place!!!
i am a 57 yr old grandmother of 5. i have been going to sloss for years. every time we go my small group, ususally just my husband and a few friends, hang back from the larger groups because i have had 8 knee surgeries and i cant hang thinking i will get knocked down by the bigger group. i can tell you that every year down in the tunnel we all feel the presence of something or someone behind us. but when we turn to look there is nothing there. you just feel chilled to the bone down there!! i love this place and will come back every year even if i have to be in a wheelchair!!!
by nana from glencoe
I have seen a real ghost there....I asked the guys of PISCA www.myspace.com/ghostlyhunters or www.twitter.com/piscaonline to try to investigate Sloss, and they told me that they are working on it. So I cant wait. They are ghost hunters from Alabama.
|fun as hell
loved it just do it
It was only before me and my current boyfriend started dating that he had told me that he had a great-grandfather that had died in the furnace. Of corse i did not belive him how could I. I then did some reserch and found it as a little family secret. His great grandfather had fell into a boiler of some type while triyng to save a blackman who had fell, they both died together. His family had never been re-embersed for their loss.
|I never been there
I never been there before my mom dad and I are going on Halloween. I hope I have lots of fun. By reading all of your comments it seems to be little bit scary. I think its not scary any way. My grandmother has been there before but she did not go on Halloween. So I hope I have a lot of fun.
|Very cool, but mom backed out. :////
Last night we went to sloss with my mom we went probobly 15 yards into the place and my mom backed .If ur going to go, bring a parent who likes very scary houses. Other than all of that what i saw was pretty okay, not that scary more creepy and pepole jump out and hit medal with stuff that's the worst.
by Baritone girl
alright ive never been to sloss before. ive been to atrox but sloss will be nothing like it. gosh im so afraid. it seems scary but still not sure if i want to see for myself.

When i saw him behind me he looked out of him self and he said "YES I AM HERE! WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT? (now he sounded sad) he hurt me and he didnt stop, he didnt stop. pepole came but didnt see me and im sill here, hes still here" and that scaed the shit out of me! its true!
by Lillian Burgison
|Voices caught on camera!!
Ok so me,my husband and a friend where in the tunnel and we're asking the "ghosts" questions.While we we're there we never heard anything just akward feelings.When we checked the video at home we could hear what sounds like to be a woman or little girl saying help me.Then you can see something walking beside me and maybe 5-10 mins after that you can hear a ghastly moan.!! It's so freakin awesome..I love SLOSS!!!
|not an experience but it will be!!!

|Don't Touch Me
I am 49 and not scared easily I went to sloss in 08 and about close to the end a man came up behind me and touched me I turned around no one was there it scared me so bad I ran through a wall knocking the whole wall down. I can't wait to return with my teenage daughter & friends. If you like to be scared GO!! its awesome.
|do not go in
that is the scariest place i have been do not go in it is to scary!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
|the most frightening thing ever in my life
well some friends and I where checking out the engine room behind the water tower. I found an old locker room way in the back part. It was spooky to begin with, really cramped and dusty. I opened the lockers and looked inside I didn't see anything at all in them. then as I was turning around to leave I bumped into something really hard I dropped my light and when it hit the ground it went out. i was a little freaked out I have to admit, but I found the flash light and when i got it back on all of the lockers that I opened where closed again and there wasn't anything behind me to bump into. I ran out and as I did out of the corner of my eye i could kinda see silhouettes of people watching in the darkness.I wont go in any of the buildings at sloss ever again only outside during the day for me.
The whole time I was there, I could hear the sound of chains, just off in the distance. Probably the tortured leftover sounds of all those black convicts used to build the fortunes of corporate Birmingham. Evil deeds never go away. They simply return in other forms.
|at one of sloss wheels
one day i was walking up to the wheel i heard screaming i thought someone was down in it but then again i heard a man got snaged to death by that wheel. Crushed while the wheel was still spinning and every time he came back around of the wheel there was lesser parts of him
i had wanted to go for a long time, but hadn't gotten the courage to go. last weekend, however, i went. i won't go again. all i could see in this one room was a red light. i got close enough to see it. it was like a nightmare, the thing cut my face, no mkidding. i won't go there again!! dude!!
During Pridefest at Sloss we had a strange feeling about the place, there were more than just human spirits there that day. Something big and sad looms over the place.
so this thing goes around about slag and hes some mean guy and i came face to face with him and he squeezed my head and my dad saw it and said i turned black- i know black, weird. and in my head i kept seeing him and hearing him saying go back to work and then i hate you and then get out and then ill kill ya over and over and over.......... i will NEVER go back again you fell like ur watched all the time!!!!!!!
|Weird man seen...
I worked at Sloss Fright Furnace with a friend, and one night after we had shut down (like 3 in the morning) we we walking through one of the tunnels that was set up for the haunted house. We were working in the middle of the tunnel so we had to walk a ways to get to the staircase to get out. We were the only two working that area that night. As we turned a corner we saw a man in blue looking coveralls and they looked like they were burned or had soot on them. We just chalked it up to one of our cast memebers trying to play a trick on us. When we got back to the crews trailer there was no one in those type clothes. The next night we saw the exact same person walking on one of the catwalks above one of our areas. He looked as if he was watching us. Were he was we did not have access to at all. The whole night I felt as if I was being followed. I felt uneasy even if I was with other people.. I still have not went back there after that.
the second year that sloss was open, i remember walking up the stairs to the fog room. i was always looking behind the barrels for the next spook, so when we got into the area at the top of the stairs with all the fog, i could see a dark figure behind a set of barrels. i saw it put its hand onto the barrels and they started to fall. me and my friend in front of me both put our hands out at the same time to steady the barrels. they did not fall. i figured the spook would eventually come out to try to scare us but he/she never did. i have always wondered if it was a careless mistake by a spook, or an attempt by a ghost to hurt us
|After the MCR show...
I went to the April 30th, 2008 My Chemical Romance show and after the show was walking around some of the old equipment and something grabs my arm. It kinda freaked me out but I really want to go back and fully explore that place after dark. I believe that Sloss Furnace is haunted for real.
this year i went to sloss and went into the tunnle and i herd something behind me and i turnd around an i saw a man with a real chain saw chasing me and i started to run away and suddnly i felt it grab me and it felt like a razor blade cut and i turnd back around and it was gone and i wuz in the part whear the only way out was to keep following the tunnle and i swear its face looked like a demon but only it was all burnt up and when i turnd back around i saw my dead grandfather. i was so scared i went to the manager and he said he did not assign any body to be down thear.and then i explaind what happend and he said that nowone that works here wears that kind of costume.
|dude dont go!
ok if you have a phobia of clowns and bugs dont go one of the clowns picked me up and seperated me from my daddy and there is a room full of bugs and maggots so i advise yu not to go '08
All I have to say is that I love Sloss and it RULES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

|something in the dark
Last year when I went to Sloss Fright Furnace when my group was walking through the part of the furnace that has that big wheel and it was really dark, and all of a sudden in the distance I see this white thing moving and it looked like it was hiding but I could still see it, at first I thought it was one of the actors and I was thinking "oh he's gonna pop out when we walk by" but we passed by it and I noticed it didn't pop out and I looked to see if it was going to pop out at the people behind us and it didn't. I kept looking at it and it kept moving it looked like a white shadow that was looking at me but it had no face it was turned towards me.

|a ghost brushed up against my arm
I LOVE Sloss Fright Furnace and last year was my first year and I went again this year because since I loved it so much last year I promised myself I'd go every year. This year when me and my friend were waiting for our group to be called I felt something brush up against my shoulder and It felt weird. I thought at first it was my purse strap that slid on my arm but when I looked at the place that I felt it the purse strap wasnt there it fact my purse strap hadn't even moved from the place it was before and I know nobody passed me so I know it was a ghost! Also when we had just finished going through the trail as I was leaving I noticed I had all these red stains that look like blood on the arm of my shirt it was all the arm of my shirt, I think it was the same arm that I felt something brush up against me. If you haven't been to Sloss you HAVE to go it's so much fun and it's the best haunted attraction and real haunted place I've ever been too!
well me and two of my friends went 2 sloss and wat happend on the catwalk i will NEVER forget. i was climin up the ladder wit my friends right behind me and about the time i got 2 the top i heard the weirdest scariest noise (it wasnt loud but lik idk very scary) my friend also heard it. i looked up and a demon lookin face appeared right in front of me (i felt its nose touch mine). its eyes were greenish yellowy and face was red kinda black. i just hung there on the ladder in shock. now i know this wasnt some one who worked there cause the "demon" thing mad a noise that couldnt b repeated and it took me out of my shock i pulled bck 2 punch but then it just...disapeared. i know i wasnt seein things cause 1 of my friend saw it 2. i sware i have never been scared 2 go in a dark room by myself but after that i just cant pull myself 2 sleep wit out my closet light on...that was my 1st time 2 go 2 sloss...and also my last.
we were walking in the hall and i felt something touch my neck then i turn around and this big dude he was a dude with us i says did u hit me he says no.were walking agin and i get pushed then i turn around and this dude that was on fire was runin .
okay well. i am so scared of everything, and I decided to go to sloss and visit this website. the website, looks very scary.... what to do: talk to the monsters, and WHATEVER U DO don't act like your scared[cause they scare u more!!!] what not to do: be in the front or the back!
I went and i got stuck in tha maze thingy . and my mother and brother told them my name , and they were chaseing me calling out "Courtney" and then that dude had a chain saw and chased me !!!! I almost peed on myself :l
well it was me and my girl jason going through the tunnel just us 2 and all of a sudden i get a bit woozy and feel as if i am going to pass out and the next thing i remember i wake up with burns on both legs and a headache i advise anyone planning on going NOT to go
|i have proof
well this is the year i try to bring me a group of my guys to the slosss and see who could get scared the most so we are about half way through and then something scraped down me on my arm and it burned thinking it was my friend behind me i turn around and see a dark figure with a burnt face my friend didnt see him but i did i woke up the next morning and i had a 2nd degree burn going down my arm im never going back thats a promise

|Great Great Uncle
My great great uncle worked at the furnace and was there when "the accident" happened. He was thrown into the rafters. He was not killed, but badly injured. Soon after he went insane...
We were going through part of the tour where the steps come out from the tunnel and I felt someone grab at my ankle. At first I thought it was just one of the ppl working there to scare you, but when we got home and I started to get in the shower the warm water started burning around my ankle. I looked and saw a near perfect hand print from where someone had grabbed my ankle just a few hours before on those stairs. And this is not just some friction burn, there are two places on it that have started to blister up on it.
i was at sloss last year and i waz about to go in when this guy in our group who was alone came up to me and told me that tonught was NOT a good night to go in sloss! my friends thought i was crazy but i left! i talked to them after they went and they said that they saw atleast 3 ghost that had the most terrifying faces they have ever seen they were the only ones who saw them and no one else did! my friend katie didnt sleep for a week!!!
by hannah bobo
So a few hours ago I go up to Sloss with my girlfriend to do the whole haunted house thing because neither of us have ever been. So we get there and it's closed. (I was not aware that they're not open on Tuesday nights.) But, the gate is wide open and aside from some beer trucks, my car is the only one in the parking lot. No one else is there. Now I'm all in to ghosts and what not and I know that Sloss is supposed to be really haunted so I convince my girlfriend to go looking for ghosts with me. So we're walking all around keeping our eyes peeled for anything weird and we walk past one of these "electric chair" props with this weird looking dummy in it which I laughed at because it was funny-looking. Then we find this room that's pitch black inside except for a blacklight and I reach out to open the door and I could have sworn that I heard somebody cough. I turn around and look at my girlfriend and she says she heard it too and that she didn't think we should go in that room. So we turned around and started to leave because the weird cough freaked her out. We're walking back the way we came and I realize something is wrong. Then it hits me. The dummy I was laughing at is gone along with his chair. At this point I get freaked out and I can literally feel my heart beating in my chest. So we pick up the pace to try to hurry up and get the hell out of there and we turn a corner and BAM! There sits the exact same dummy from before in the chair. I'm not gonna lie... I screamed like a woman. And as if that wasn't enough, while we're high-tailing it to the exit we start hearing what sounds like people screaming and a weird whistling noise off in the distance. Needless to say, we are NOT going back to Sloss when they're closed EVER again. Bad idea.
|There or... Not there?
My name is Rachel I'm 14 years old I went to Sloss Fright Furnace with my father and my best friend. My father lead our tour group there were about 10 people in our group including us, we would call out warnings to each other like if stairs, water, or monsters were coming up. We were walking in the furnace after the tessla-coil room. There were parts of the iron mill around us. I saw a shadowed figure (thinking it was a monster that would jump out and scare us) I warned everyone.... I was the only one who saw the man. As I rounded the corner coming closer to him we had to pass a metal pole which cut off our view for no more than a second. When I passed I looked back at the place where the man was standing expecting him to jump.....he wasn't there anymore. I'm basing him off my Dad so I think he stood about 5'9", heavy build about 200lbs., dark dirty looking clothes. He was standing with his feet apart even with his shoulders his arms slightly out to his sides. I could not see the man's face it was too dark in the room, upon seeing him though the room seemed to get colder. As we passed he was not there and everything was back to normal. ( As normal as it gets for a haunted factory. ) There was only one way to move out.. to step in our path or.... vanish?! I know you may right this off as a kid seeing things, after all this was my first haunted house tour, BUT this kid saw something.
this year at sloss i was in the spinning room i felt something bite my neck and just thought it was a mosquito,i was at the end of the group...... and later on in the night i looked in the mirror and my neck was bleeding pretty badly.i rushed to the hospital and they said there was nothing in my neck.and ever since i can see it but no one else can i have not felt the same since.
|MII SECOND VISIT
IT WAS EVEN SCARIER! MANN I ACTUALLY CAME FACE TO FACE WITH A GHOST CUZ I WAS THE ONLY 1 IN THE TUNNEL! I WAS SKEARD OUT OF MY MIND! OMG!! HE SAID HIS NAME WAS JONNY! I WAS LIKE "WAHH"! BUT IT WAS EXCITING AT THE SAME TIME!
by BIG BOTTIE
The 2008 trail is unreal! At the very beginning, they have a crazy skeleton that has got to be 20ft. tall! The actors are totally NUTS! They will hang from the pipes in the ceiling, and scale fences to get to you. It's like they are all acrobats! In one of the rooms, there's a machine that shoots giant lightning bolts over your head, and lots of monsters with chainsaws. In one part of the maze, the walls start to close in on you. The group I was with was walking really slowly, and I almost started to hyperventilate! It was terrifying. I heard that someone actually peed on themselves earlier that night! I believe it. If you like a good show, and can appreciate skillfully crafted props...and you like to have the BEJESUS scared out of you, you should go! How will they ever top this year?
|i got hit but nobady was....
there behind me! omg i mean it or what ever it was it hit me and left a bruise! then later that day i saw a human like figure and it was following me! well ill check in on yall later bout my next visit! buh bye!

|READ THIS!!! TRUE STORY!!!!
So I went to sloss last year. When I was just about to exit the tour, I lost my friend. I went back and saw him sitting in the corner crying.(I just thought he was being a little baby back bitch) When I got up to him, his eyes were red and he growled at me. I ran to get one of the workers and when they got there he was normal and not crying. He said he blacked out.

|Footsteps, banging, nausea
So, me and my friends went to sloss furnace in May of 2008. We were so curious about the stories we heard about he old factory. So we decided to go. It was me, my friend Bubba, and Derick. We toured the whole site until we came upon this room called the Blowing Engine Room. Something definetly attracted us to this room. Reportings have shown that there are over 100 sightings in this area. As we roamed the site, we heard footsteps, banging noises, and also felt a blast of cold air as if there was an air conditioner in the room. But, the strange thing about it was that there wasno electricity at all, because it has been closed down for at least 30 years. I also had taken a picture of Derick in front of one the machines called the Wheel, and reportings also state that a man was crushed to death in this machine. keep in mind that i wasn't moving the camera, the picture was perfect, and he wasn't moving either. But, after I took the picture, we noticed that his body was see-through, and half of his head was cut off. That, we cannot expain. Another incident we occured was upon the catwalk; one of the most haunted places in that room. As we began to climb the ladder that leads to the catwalk, I began to feel weak, and lightheaded. I felt like someone was watching us. It was that sense of fear of the unknown. My legs were weak, my heart was beating rapidly, and i was beggining to lose breath. That was my experience on the catwalk. Now, my friend Bubba, had the same feeling I had up there. Now, that is a true story, and unexplainable.

|not one of the monsters
my friend and i went to sloss in october for the haunted house we were walking around the corner laghing at some of the people dressed up and i saw a shadow in a dark corner we had been messing with the people there all night so i decided that i would go over there and tap the guy on the head but when i reached the corner there was nobody there
Okay..So the last 3 years I've gone to Sloss Fright Furnace for every Halloween. It's great there; Exspeially if you read the history of Sloss before you vist there. The shows there are wounderful. But beware of the wait. Last year I visted Sloss I waited 4 hours before I got the chance to go through it. But I promise, The wait was all okay after the exsperiace of the tour. Hope you come for 2008..I heard it's supposed to be better than any other year. -Hope to see ya there. ? Kelly!*

|a show before the show.
we went to the My Chemical Romance show on April the 30th and my friend and i decided that we wanted to tour the furnace to kill some time and well we knew the story behind it and wanted to check it out but like there was a room under the back half of the furnace that has like a chair in it and everytime we tried to go in there it was like something kept pushing us back and then in the tunnel we took some pictures and its filled with orbs and my friend said she kept feeling something touch her. i'm now a firm believer that sloss is haunted!
|Sweet Good time Horror Fun

|Real experience on fright tour
This happened a few years ago, but while my son and I were waiting for our group's turn to go into the fright tour, we were both pinched by something invisible.

i went with my boyfriend and my sis and her boyfriend and i had a great time. it was a great experience. it was really AWESOME!! it could be a little better though. it really wasn't all that scary more funny than scarey!!! thanks to everybody!! it was fun!!
In October 2006, My Art class went on a feild trip to Sloss for a tour, around like 11am. When we got about half way we were on the cross walk. Me and my friends were in the very back of the line and the tour guy stopped to show us something. Me and my friend were taking pics with each-other and we felt like someone just blew on our necks, or like it was a breeze. It was very very cold in that spot. so we screamed and we ran up with the rest of the group. But it was really weird because it was only cold in that one spot, nowhere else. And the end of our tour the, tour guy said that the place was haunted that just freaked me out. That was the creepiest feild trip ever. <3 LaTeria
|so much better than i thought it would be!
I went about a week ago, because i was forced to. I went with my mom, my sister, my cousin, and my friend. We ran into another one of my friends there with her sister. Well, we got in line to go in sloss fright furnace and i started getting really scared. i wanted to back out so bad, but my friends wouldn't let me. When we were finally about to go in, after some dead lookin dude screamed the rules. When we went in, i was on the verge of tears i was so nervous. one dude actually got knocked down by my momma, but it was an accident lol. anyway, i was practically on one of my friends' back lol and as we progressed, i acted like i wasn't scared, you know i was laughing at every dude who tried to scare me. now, i have to admit i did scream once, but other than that, the people who worked there, didn't pick on me much, because like i said, i acted like it all amused me. I don't think i wanna go back though lol i just don't like being scared.
sloss is past scary last year when i came i had an encounter with some of the people there i was so scared that when i got home i was still thinking about it its been a year in im still thinking about it. But i am gowing on hollow wing with some friends in i hope they pe there selfs

|It was okay.
There where a few jumps here and there but in all it was pretty okay. But I expected the people and the costumes to be a little scarier you know? But the only reason why I had fun was because I had friends and these cute boys in front of me to hold on too. If you go though have fun because It might be a different experience for you then it was for me. You might even get to see a few ghosts ;D
|sloss is the bombdigidy!!!!!!

by lauren hailey
I almost chickened out; however, after a little coaxing I went! It was really awesome! I will definitely be making it tradition!
|Made a believer outta me!
Around 2002 or 2003, I accompanied a group of ghost hunters to Sloss. It was a suitably rainy night. I wandered off by myself with just a flashlight when I heard a small rattling following me. The flashlight showed a single empty soda can which rolled right up to my feet & stopped. It wouldn't have been so bad it I wasn't standing on a fairly steep walkway, but what REALLY freaked me out was when I stepped over the can, walked maybe 30 feet back down the walkway & heard the can begin to roll & it once again came right to my feet & stopped before touching me. WAY too far for the wind to be the only cause, so you tell me! What made that stupid can roll so far & follow me in two different directions? I don't know but it made me leave rather quickly without saying goodbye to my friends.
I just went to sloss last night on friday october 26 with a bunch of friends at the spurr of the moment.It was my first time at sloss and I didnt know what to expect.First off the effects were really good, second the enviroment hellped, but it really didnt scare me,but it scared my bf out of his mind.But the whole time we were there, Whenever I felt like there was someone following me, I would turn around and no one would be there.All in all it was fun. But maybe if I ever get to go back, it will be even better.
Its ok. Alot of cockroaches and rats though
this was my first time going(2007), my brother wanted to go so bad, so we went on a thursday night. I was already shaking because i was nervous and didn't know what to expect because it was my first time. They finally called our letter and i was kinda pumped and ready to go. We were finally in our group of seven, and the man is telling us how dark it's going to be in there, and how close the monsters are going to get to you, really close in your personal space, and might even brush against you, or chase you. Yeah, that's when i was like i don't think so, and I started to leave, but my brother was like no, you're not leaving! So I stayed for a few more mins, and we went through to see these two dudes standing there all bloodied up and stuff, holding a chainsaw, and like a little hammer or something. They told us to get in line,well actually screamed, so we did. I was trying not look scared, so they wouldn't pick on me, but i guess it didn't work, cause the dude with the chainsaw was screaming all in my face, and i was like omg. They were both ganging up on me. he had the chainsaw right by me swuiping it on the ground, boy i wanted to get out there right then! then we started to move inside the building, and they kept following and taunting us, particulary me. then the chainsaw dude had the chainsaw right in front of me blocking me. And everyone kept walking and i couldn't move, so i had to let go and i was by myself. here comes another dude with a chainsaw that just jumps out nowhere. All three of them surrounding me in my face, with chainsaws, a little hammer thing, and something else.i was screaming really loud. i couldn't move anywhere, and i was not about to go through the ride by myself, so i decided to go back up to the front, they were still following me. so i went under the little chain thing they blocked off. and i started running, i stopped running for a minute, then i heard the dude with the chainsaw right behind me screaming and the chainsaw running, I shot out there quick, fast, and in a hurry! I think i'd try again, just for the fun of it because now i know what to expect, and hopefully i'll actually get inside this time. Ha! ha!
me and my wife went last year and it scared her to death. it was alright. i am going back this year with my cousin and everyone has told me it was alot better this year than ever i cant wait
|best freakin thing ive ever done!!!
I've never been into a haunted house before and i wanted to prove to my friends i was brave and i did stuff like thiss all of the time. So, i asked my best friend Leah to go. We went in and it was soo scary. All the people were picking on me and stuff. I thought it was the funnest, weridest, craziest, scariest, coolest thing ive ever done. I loved it and im definatly going back next year or again this year!!! Trust me, I will NEVER look at Sloss the same way again.
|Sloss is GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!
i love Sloss i have been there four times, this year will be the fifth year. i can't wait to see the new stuff! i live in atlanta and i go almost every year! this is one of the best haunted houses i have ever been too.
me and my boyfriend and mom and step dad went saturday and it was soo freaky!! i was holding on to my boyfriend the WHOLE time!! but it seemed really short but other than that it was soo much fun!! you have to go!
|me think it was richard jowers.....=[
ok. well me n my bff got a bunch of our friends to come with us last friday to sloss.none of then relle watched the videos and stuff about it but i did. well when we going through the catwalk in complete darkness i swear i saw a man sitting on the floor. then in the tunnel he was sitting again and he said" help me! my name is Richard Jowers. Help me!" but my friend pushed me on. i dont kno if it was just me or what but i know i saw something. his clothes were relle old,bloody,and torn. he looked like he was the one who had been thrown in the iron and burned to death. but thats just me.
Ok, first off, this was so f'in scary! My boyfriend and me somehow got stuck at the very end of the line, which was CRAZY b/c they all targeted us. The first guy that talks about Sloss really freaked me out b/c he followed me SO CLOSE and I could feel him breathing on my neck! The person that scared me the MOST though was the very first woman I saw when your going down the cat walk thing and she's standing there. She got SO CLOSE to me and kept following me I thought I was about to die!! Plus, I did feel like, in some places, that someone was there, but when I turned around there would be no one. I do believe there are real ghosts there. It has that feeling all the way. You guys did a GREAT job!! I loved the vortex! That shit was AWESOME!!!! The whole thing was terrifying, which I loved!!! B/c if it wasn't scary, I would have felt like I wasted time and money...but I feel that it was worth it!! Everyone considering going....go for it! You will NOT be disappointed!! I PROMISE!!! Thanks Sloss for a GREAT time!!! Can't wait to go again!!
|Sloss is GREAT!!!!!!!!
I found out about sloss before i ever went there for the fright furnace and the place is awesome! I saw Dj Irene there and Live! Never had any freaky experiences...yet. I met a Birmingham native and he told me about the place being haunted. After that I had to go to to the fright furnace. I have gone at least 3 or 4 times. I can't wait, I will be there this year to see all the new stuff. I am sooooo excited!!!!!!!
My experience at the sloss furnace was terrifying and that's what made it so great everything was awsome i have never ever experienced somthing like this b4, from the scary movies to the interesting side shows and having under a bridge is a ideal location.
|that was AWESOME !!!
i went last night ( sat. oct. 20 ) and it was a blast. i was scared to death and i am lacing a voice today and i am going back next saturday. and hopefully i won't be wearing the sign on my forehead that says " please go after the red head with the pigtail braids " next time. want to be scared to death ? go.
