Fuji-Q Highland’s Labyrinth of Fear: Japan’s Most Terrifying Haunted House

Fuji-Q Highland's Labyrinth of Fear - Japan's Most Terrifying Haunted House

Ever been to Japan’s biggest and scariest haunted house?

Be ready to send chills down your spine as Fuji-Q Highland’s Labyrinth of Fear gives you an average of 50-minute nerve-wracking experience you will never forget!

Listed as one of the largest and scariest haunted houses in the world, Fuji-Q Highland’s Labyrinth of Fear is not a place for the fearful. With its hospital setting and 900 meters of puzzling maze to deal with amid strange echoes and sounds, this two-story building depicts the perfect labyrinth of fear.

The Labyrinth of Fear has a history traced to a popular hospital close to Mount Fuji where doctors were accused of selling internal organs of patients and disposing of their bodies which occasioned the spirits of the dead victims to haunt back and kill many doctors, a legend that has lived ever since.

The craziest experience we had (I went there with one more person) was the Room of No Escape where we were confined in a confusing space with weird ambience, no visible exit route, and ghosts chasing after us. That was so horrifying that I ended up losing my voice due to shouting non-stop. I doubt I would ever have the guts to try Fuji-Q’s haunted house again. lol

If you think you’ve got the nerves to try out the eerie sounds, experience strange sights and smells, and walk through extremely dark passages, then the Labyrinth of Fear is for you!

But if you really can’t take it anymore, no worries. There are pink doors marked “retire” in a few parts of the building where you can just take the moment you decide to give up. But don’t you dare! The Labyrinth of Fear is something you would be proud of once you complete the 50 minutes of pure terror!

Can you make it to the end?
Good luck!

  1. Fuji-Q Highland’s Labyrinth of Fear really sounds scary. I for one would not like to be confined to a scary room with apparently no exits and being chased by ghosts. It is so scary! But I know many people get a thrill out of it.

    1. It’s so thrilling but I ‘m not sure if I can still do it again. haha
      Fuji-Q’s haunted house is so much scarier than the other haunted houses I’ve tried.

  2. Oh my goodness, you are braver than I am!! 50 minutes doesn’t sound like too long but I’d still be terrified. My kids would love this though. Thanks for sharing :)

  3. Waaaah i love fuji q!!!! To me it is the best theme park ever!!! I wasnt able to try the labyrinth though 😂😂😂 im glad you enjoyed uour time!!!!

  4. This is one place I will not step my foot into ! If I do, I won’t be able to sleep for a week. Though the history behind this is quite disturbing – human organ racket. I am glad you survived 50 minutes with just losing your voice.

    1. Haha! Don’t worry, Fuji-Q theme park is so much fun that you will slowly forget about your crazy horror experience once you start exploring other attractions! ;)

  5. I would love to do this! I’ve done some cool haunted houses before but this one looks amazing. 50 minutes is a long time though!

  6. OMG, this is so intriguing yet scary as hell! I applaud you for giving it a try. Would love to see it but would definitely have to go through holding hands with a bunch of friends. LOL

  7. Oh, so its not a proper haunted house, just a company to scare the pants of people. Maybe I would go to take my child there but I wouldnt go there by myself. :P

  8. 50 minutes…that’s long huh! I’d like to try this too, but I would have to go in with a friend who’s braver than I am. Hehe.
