The story of Asylum

asylum manila
Dr. Vanicutt, a psychiatric doctor from Pennsylvania, opened up the country’s first premier psychiatric institute for the criminally insane in 1939. However after his wife tragically died, and his only daughter Anastasia disappeared mysteriously, Vanicutt went mad and delirious – some even say he was possessed. The Asylum suffered in the process, with Vanicutt tormenting his patients, conducting grotesque and inhumane medical procedures that eventually riddled the hospital with death and evil.
Many years later, the Asylum opens its doors again, welcoming a new batch of patients to torment and torture. Are you crazy enough to be one of them?

50 rooms in 45 minutes

Ever wondered how long you’d last in a horror movie? Well, you’re about to find out. Patients, aka visitors, are to walk, jump, slide, and run through over 50 (yes, we’re not kidding) scare zones, that are practically the manifestations of your worst possible nightmare. The worst bit? You’ll have to do it in 60 minutes or less. That said, we highly suggest you don’t hold on to those wimpy friends of yours – you won’t last 5 minutes!
As it is set to be an abandoned psychiatric facility, the haunted maze attraction will have patients walk through laboratories, morgues, and operating rooms – all of which, as you can expect, have remnants of their previous tenants, both dead and semi-alive. Additionally, visitors will be forced to walk through crypts, sewers, and dark claustrophobic hallways that’ll surely mess with your head.

From reel to real

Let’s just say that you’re about to come face-to-face with the demons you only thought belonged in the big screen. Past the morgues and examination rooms, you may just find yourself in an infamous red room, a sewer filled with stuffed toys, and a young girl’s bedroom covered with dolls. We’ll leave it to you to figure out whose company you can expect.

Overall, the entire Asylum experience will make you feel like you’re trapped inside the horror flick of your worst nightmare. From the hospital’s bloody walls to the patient’s horrific screams – this is one place you’ll never want to return to.

Don’t say we didn’t warn you
