Review This Haunt
  • Better than the past couple years

    we went to Brighton for 2015 and this was by far the best year yet. They really stepped up their game and paid a lot of attention to the sets and detail. The actors were great and we had a blast. They expanded a bit and it def felt longer than in the past. Great Job!

  • Excellent !!!

    From start to finish, I definitely recommend the haunt ! The details to the way to the actors look to the props are amazing - have been to a few of the other larger area haunts and this is by far the best !

  • SO FUN - Actors were awesome

    So much fun...It was a long wait but that's of course due to it's popularity. Actors walk around during line though and even scare you when you use their bathrooms haha it was fun... the scenes were so cool, liked how it was detailed, would of been cool if they added more to it, overall it was creepy & we had a good time The owner was such a sweetheart btw!

  • must go to this haunt!

    The entire haunt from start to finish is anything but a disappointment. Very well put together and decorated, and the actors were phenomenal. Scary and intense from start to finish. Definitely had my heart racing! If you haven't been there yet this season you must go!! Can't wait to go back for the 13 haunted events!!

  • Sadly underwhelmed

    For all the rave reviews I was a little disappointed with Brighton. Long lines are to be expected at any high profile haunt and the line warmers did an EXCELLENT job. However, the rest of the haunt was more schizophrenic than the patients inside and not in a good way. One minute your being tormented by a mental patient and the next you're in a cave? catacomb? wasn't entirely sure what it was. The scenes that you do see are well done and the actors do a decent job with a few scares specifically standing out. No spoilers but the chair totally surprised us. Sadly a handful of decent scares wasn't enough to really work for us. I haven't been to any of the seasonal events that Brighton puts on throughout the year, this review is for the basic haunt. I do plan to come back and try some of the seasonal events. Hoping next time works out better.

  • The BEST, BEST, BEST!

    I have been going to haunted houses since the early 80's so I consider myself a pretty good critic. By far this is the best haunt in new jersey. The scenery looks like it came right out of a horror movie, the actors are excellent and the makeup and costumes are all custom designed and made. Not from your neighborhood halloween store. They also have some really unique ideas that are not in most haunted attractions. Scared the crap out of me and thats pretty hard to do. Good going guys. See you in October and for the 13 haunts.

  • Brighton Asylum Rocks!

    Opening night was awesomely fantastic! Great crowd (it was jammed packed with people but very orderly and super friendly)...phenomenal actors (the way they popped up unexpectedly added to fun) and the asylum itself kicked @$$! Loved the suspense/thrill factor (you NEVER knew who would come out and at what time). From the moment you arrive until the time you leave, your senses are on high alert! There's always a surprise around the corner! Brighton Asylum: Haunted Attraction rocks!

  • Friday the 13th

    Although the line was long...it was well worth the wait. OMG, I was so scared. Can't wait for October. I also bought a ticket for the 13 haunts.

  • Something more to do throughout the YEAR and SHARE MEMORIES

    What is there to say BRIGHTON ASYLUM is this years top place to go. If you are looking for a good scare, de-stress from stress, a lot of laughs with friends. This is the place for you. I went there with family we both agreed that getting a good scare will make you feel younger and de-stressed. If its hard for you to stand on a long line here are some IDEAS when they get close have your group call you and you get out of car and go online, or pay extra and go on the express line. Plus now they have more scares throughout the year give that holiday a twists Get out of the normal routine. It is so worth the memories and something to share with others. But one thing DONT do is be online and let your friends come online where you are I saw that and thought ok I am here waiting and here is 7 people just showing up skipping the line. Think of those behind you waiting like you are.

  • Best Haunted Attraction

    I got to attend on Friday the 13th and I must say that Brighton Asylum continues to scare me year after year!! The set and actors are always changing and never dull. I always try different haunted attractions every year but Brighton Asylum is the only one I return to on a regular basis. As I walk through the attraction I can't help but scream and then admire their attention to detail and creativity. I also think it's awesome to see the horror movie items they have on display. Looking forward to checking out the other year long attractions that are available! !!
