Home Clown Asylum


BRIGHTON ASYLUM, the legendary haunted asylum complex featured on The Today Show, Cake Boss, Buzzfeed, ABC, NBC, FOX, and media outlets all over the country, shut down in 1952 due to staff and patient disappearances, as well as intolerable living conditions. Now, the asylum has re-opened and is accepting new patients! Brighton Asylum is a massive walk-through dark attraction filled with terrifying live actors, horror movie style scares, and Hollywood quality special effects. Check in here. You have nothing to lose but your mind!

Clown Asylum at Brigton Asylum

Saturday May 11th, 2019

As if a haunted house wasn’t scary enough? We decided to fill this one entirely with demented clowns! Big clowns, little clowns, clowns with chainaws…they are ALL here for a one of a kind interactive haunted house like no other. Bring your friends and don’t tell them about the clowns until they find out the hard way! Then enjoy the screams!

If you are too afraid but still want to attend, you can get one of our free protection balloons before entering, which will keep these morbid and demented clowns from devouring your soul. If you are unfamiliar with our contact events, please visit our Contact Nights page for more Info.

May 11th, 2019. Ticket booth hours are 8:00pm-10:00pm. This event may sell out so it is strongly recommended to purchase your tickets in advance.  Tickets  on sale now!
