The Asylum presents MADHOUSE

In the halls of what once was the area’s most reputable hospital, a demented doctor has brought his patients’ nightmares to life. Society’s undesirable souls have been abandoned in the dark recesses of this once safe haven. Their sole purpose is to serve the good doctor and his sadistic experiments. Scratching and clawing their way through their new existence, patients succumb to delirious visions before becoming one of the doctor’s creations. Can you survive a journey into the Asylum, where the veil between realities is twisted.

Open Thursday through Sunday. Tickets go on sale at 6:00 pm.

Thursdays and Sundays tickets stop being sold at 9:30 pm and on
Friday and Saturdays Nights at 11:30 pm.
