Tuck's House of Fear (UN-M-2104)
Of all the attractions and rides the travelling fairground offered, the biggest draw by far was Graham Tuck’s ‘House of Fear’, a multilevel ‘haunted house’ that really lived up to its name.

Though the attraction was quite simple in design, consisting of a self-guided walk through a series of sealed rooms, it was always the most popular.

Tuck, highly skilled in the art of séance, used his psychic talents to enhance his attraction above any other of the day. Unlike his peers, who used systems of smoke, mirrors and pulleys to scare their visitors, Graham called upon the services of the real sprit world to add an extra touch of authenticity.

Tuck conversed freely with the spirits and had long ago discovered that no mechanical trickery could equal the exhilaration of an encounter with a real spirit. Over the years Tuck made use of his psychic knowledge, to ensnare a number of unsettled spirits into his ‘House of Fear’.
