ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Another Albuquerque woman said actors at a haunted attraction crossed the line in a sexual way and freaked her out with how they touched her and what they said to her.
This is now the second woman in a few days to come forward, saying she didn’t just feel scared after her experience at New Mexico Slaughterhouse. She said she felt violated.
“I felt filthy. I felt gross,” said the 19-year-old who asked to remain anonymous.
She said two actors did much more than scare her.
“They were both pushed up against me into this corner with their whole bodies against me, rubbing their heads on me,” the woman said.
She was separated from her fiancé and had a pillow case over her head as one of the guys whispered in her ear.
“Telling me I need to yell for my fiancé and tell him that I’m with a real man, and he can do things to me that my fiancé never did, that he’ll show me what a real man is,” the woman said.
KRQE News 13 asked production manager Daniel Casillas if that is allowed.
“That is allowed,” he said.
The incident had the teen pushing her way out of the attraction, “forfeiting” as the Slaughterhouse calls it, but Casillas said there was nothing sexual about it.
“Yes, we’ll probably tell them call out to their fiancé,” Casillas said.
“And, ‘I’m a real man and I can do things to you that your fiancé won’t do?’” KRQE questioned.
“Yes, this is a horror flick,” he said. “This is something you would probably see in a Rob Zombie movie.”
Casillas said touching is allowed and customers are warned before entering.
“We can’t state that we’re doing anything sexual in there because that’s not what this is about,” he said. “This is about reaching and making sure our customers are experiencing a scare, and a scare could be anything,” Casillas said.
The teen who spoke with KRQE said workers laughed at her when she told them what happened.
Casillas said he doesn’t have a record of the complaint and urges anyone with a complaint to report it to the Slaughterhouse. He said most of the actors are high school students and that the haunted attraction doesn’t do background checks but all actors go through a two-hour training.
