Finding your way through this attraction
was a bit like solving a puzzle. The Asylum of Mad Dreams isn’t laid out like a typical haunted house with straight, easy to follow paths throughout the attraction.
The Asylum is filled with hidden exits and pathways; finding your way through isn’t as easy
you may think. One minute you could be sent through a plain hidden panel and another time you could find the way to the next scene by walking through a freezer or a coffin.
This year they have totally redone most of the rooms, so you can
have a unique experience this season, even if you visited last
year. Unfortunately, as part of their redesign, they have eliminated the large slides, but it is still a multiple level attraction. There are a number of places in the house where you must either walk up
and down steps, duck down or step over a high threshold to get to the next
In your trek through the Asylum of Mad Dreams, you will find numerous scenes that are separated by eerie dark hallways. Some of the more
notable scenes were the detailed graveyard with its wrought iron fence & tombstones, and the doctor’s office, complete with x-ray charts and a Frankenstein-type creature laying on an operating table.
Throughout the attraction, there were a few great animated
props, as well.
Many of the scenes in the Asylum were interactive. In the Hallway of Doors,
an actor asked you to guess which door was the right way out and in the carnival midway scene, you were encouraged to play the ring toss game.
All of the actors were very motivated and really seemed to be ‘into’ what they were doing.
Chainsaws, leaf blowers, horns and air cannons were but a few things
that they used to scare their patrons.
Overall the Asylum of Mad Dreams was a very enjoyable experience and quite a bargain at only $8.00.
