Review This Haunt
  • Wowww

    Wowww… what a haunt!! We were screaming non-stop. Bleeding room had all the gore that could freak you out. It was also my favourite. The actors’ makeup and costumes was outstanding, especially those in the asylum wards. Escape room was challenging. We could not break out in time. Now I intend to do it in my next visit.

  • Email Verified Great sets, props

    To be honest, I was a bit sceptical in the beginning. It took much prodding from wife and kids for me to change my mind. But it would have been a loss had I noted relented and visited Brighton. We took fast pass and that helped to skip the queue. My wife and kids screamed non-stop in the dark. Scares were well timed and executed to perfection. Great sets, props, scares and terrific actors. The asylum sets looked realistic. Actors’ makeup stood out. The elevator to the tunnel was a creepy ride. The tunnel was dark and narrow and the grotesque characters virtually freaked us out. Escape room was fun too. We all had a great time in the haunt. I will definitely visit again next year.

  • Dark and creepy

    It was my second visit to Brighton, and I loved it. My GF who was with me was totally petrified by the scares and props. The house was well put together, and it was pretty scary and hands-on. You can choose if you wish the scares to be interactive before you enter. The tunnel was dark and creepy, and featured some good jump scares that virtually startled me off my feet. I would not recommend young children.

  • Email Verified Terror everywhere

    AWESOME EXPERIENCE! The place was well designed with scary interiors and lots of nerve wracking terrors. The elevator simulation was impressive. The tunnel was dark and creepy. Bleeding room was the goriest and creepiest in the haunt. Escape rooms were fun. We teamed up with few other visitors to crack the code.

  • Full of intense scares

    Best haunted house I've been too! The scare actors scared the daylight out of me and my partner. She even screamed few times. The lower floor had more intense scares compared with the top floor. The actors’ creepy makeup and costumes virtually freaked me out. The clowns also scared us white. Overall, it was great fun and we had a great time in the Brighton. Recommend this place.

  • 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

  • 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!
