  • Email Verified Thrilling experience in the asylum

    Awesome experience. Perfect blend of thrilling experience in the haunted asylum for around an hour. Excellent actors draped in scary outfits. Hats off to organizers for setting up a perfect ambience!

  • Email Verified Creepy asylum inmates

    Went through the regular queue and it took me hardly 20 minutes to get into the houses. Loved the creepy asylum inmates, terrifying themes and animatronics was bundled together to give me a taste of real fear. Enjoyed the music and economical pricing for the haunt. Keep up the good work actors or ghosts.

  • Email Verified Scary asylum inmates

    It was better than last year.. the different rooms are diligently designed to scare the shit out of you.. actors all played their roles to perfection. The makeup and costumes made them really scary entities. My nieces screamed out loud most of the times they encountered scary asylum inmates. Staff was friendly as well. Kudos to the management for bringing such a haunted place in the area.

  • Love for scary adventure

    New adventurous trend of Halloween attracted me a lot and I have become a big follower… exploring new haunted houses has became my new passion… and I find this aggressive haunted house named Brighton Asylum… I went there with my boyfriend who was really fed up of my new passion… but he also enjoyed there a lot… Not so diversified but classified into few adventures...this place rocks in my memory.

  • Scary and creepy

    Brighton Asylum was really scary and creepy. The construction of the asylum was great; each corner of the building was designed carefully to spook the visitors out. Actors were excellent..they scared the crap out of us.. Special effects were also great. I suggest this haunt for all scare lovers.

  • Vivid and wicked

    You must shout more and more to feel the craziness inside you… Brighton Asylum is that vivid and wicked. I went there is my crazy college friends and we had a good time over there. Horror Museum was not like the usual boring museum of real world… very dramatic and had filled with magnetic vibes. The Bleeding Grounds were so dark and muddled, we were enjoying a lot. Special feature was the Brighton Asylum… we felt like culprits and chaotic… A deadly place with all scary activities.

  • 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!

  • 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.
