Atrox Factory is a 40,000 square foot haunted attraction located in the former Solomon Trousers factory at 1104 Parkway Drive Southwest in Leeds which bills itself as "the largest indoor haunted attraction in the Southeast". In addition to a large and complex walk-through attraction with a variety of human and animatronic encounters, Atrox has a carnivalesque queuing area with fortune-tellers, souvenir stands, video screens and displays. In 2005 the element of smell was added to the experience.

Principal organizers are Paul Johnson, Kyle Holman, David Russell and Shane Traffanstedt. The organizers previously ran Slain Manor before moving to central Leeds and the character of "Dr Slain" is still a part of the horror concept at Atrox.

Some scenes from the 2004 film "Alice's Misadventures in Wonderland" were filmed at Atrox.
