Hysteria Dubai is one of the top attractions in Dubai Mall for thrill seekers. It is a scary experience supported by a spine-chilling backstory. Hysteria Dubai is modeled like a haunted mansion whose owners are a couple. They have lost their children at midnight mysteriously. The couple has begun a hunt to find their kids. They suspect the guests that enter through the mansion door. You might be arrested and taunted by the spirits of the family. The fact that the parents still consider that their children are alive makes the whole experience more dreadful.

What Happens in Hysteria Dubai?

Hysteria is a terror-fuelled attraction in Dubai; it has a range of 15 rooms, each with its scare-inducing elements. The theatrical performances look too real to not believe.

There are residents named Sykomaniak, Maddy Butler and FiFi Sue. You will enter into the dark and dim-lit corridors and rooms that will leave you petrified for long. Navigate through a maze of doors, encounter spooky characters and watch the scenery change. Creepy music and unpleasant sounds will give you the heebie-jeebies. The possessed room takes guests on a screaming ride as the unexpected entrances, unsettling light and ghosts hanging upside down make things out of control.

Every time you stumble upon something, your heart will skip a beat. At a point, you might be surrounded by a couple of ghosts — definitely not for the faint-hearted. It’s a dangerous walkthrough as the rooms plunge into darkness. You can even expect someone to peek through the art hung on the wall. You would be jumping restlessly for your life and the moment you stop for a sigh of relief, there is another deadly moment.

The entire experience gives you a rush — you might be crying your eyes out, laughing it off, clutching your friend’s hand, or shutting your eyes with fear.

In short, you will feel like a warrior once you come out of the mansion.
