Review This Haunt
  • Email Verified I was super dissapointed

    I went to Brighton Asylum yesterday for the asylum and tunnels. First we waited in a very long line for the tunnels. We did the tunnels and I did not find it scary at all. They referred to the tunnels as a "warm up" to the asylum. After the tunnels we waited in another long line for the asylum. The asylum itself was disappointing to say the least. 1. If you look you can see over the walls and see where rooms were. 2. Once you entered the "asylum" i totally forgot it was in a real asylum. The rooms were so decorated and poorly used that I actually couldn't tell the difference from a haunted house vs the "asylum". I use the word asylum in quotes because it felt totally transformed into a haunted house and they didn't even incorporate the actual asylum well. 3. The rooms have such bad insolation and the groups were so close together that you could easily tell when there was gonna be a "scary moment" about to happen. 4. I didn't find it scary at all. The jump scares were wayyyy to expected and I wasn't scared the least. I don't get why this place is considered scary. The rooms were super lit so you didn't feel alone or anything. You could hear every scare from the next group ahead so you knew what to expect. 1/10 would not recommend. Very dissapointed.

  • 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!

  • 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.
