Brighton Asylum:

New Jersey’s legendary Brighton Asylum has been rated as the #1 haunted attraction in New Jersey by more news outlets than any other haunted house in New Jersey.  Called “The Scariest Place On Earth” by The Today Show, featured on Cake Boss, Huffington Post, Fox News, ABC, Ravelist, named one of the top haunted houses in the world by Buzzfeed, as well as given the award of #1 haunted house in New Jersey by numerous industry reviewers, Brighton Asylum is the top halloween destination in the tri-state area.

Whether you just visited us last Halloween season, or you haven’t set foot through our creaky doors in years, Brighton Asylum boasts the scariest and most interactive haunted houses PERIOD! All custom special effects, huge moving sets that interact with you, actor driven animatronics trying to devour you, haunts packed with veteran actors, fun and scares at every turn!!

Brighton Asylum and its attractions undergo massive renovations each and every season to provide you with brand new and exciting experiences you won’t find anywhere else!

Port 9L:

Start your journey at Brighton Asylum’s “research and development” center, where you and your friends will be subjected to a series of “testing” procedures by Brighton’s own research team. Your “readiness” to proceed further into the Asylum will be thoroughly tested in this fully immersive, interactive pre-show experience!

Next, make your way to Brighton’s very own “central station” where you will  board our private subway system intended to drop you off at your final destination, Brighton Asylum.  But,..will you make it there?

The Bleeding Grounds:

Journey through the staff quarters of Brighton Asylum, located on the abandoned 2nd floor of Brighton Asylum, closed in 1952, and re-opened in 2018 to the public!

Find out why these elaborate quarters, where staff once worked, slept, researched, and experimented, were ultimately dubbed,…The Bleeding Grounds.

Slasher Thursdays:

Come face to face with your favorite horror icons of all time in this one-of-a-kind special haunted house event you don’t want to miss!

Based off our hit off season event “Night Of The Creeps”, Brighton Asylum, PORT9L, and The Bleeding Grounds will be filled with your favorite horror legends, waiting to terrorize you at every turn!

Special free photo ops, horror legends roaming the queue lines, and most of all, a celebration of all things “slasher” at New Jersey’s legendary Brighton Asylum.

Black Out:

Brighton Asylum’s “Black Out” night is a terrifying event, where you and your group will experience Brighton Asylum, and PORT9L in near total darkness! (The Bleeding Grounds on the 2nd level will still have show lighting for those who appreciate the detail and amazing special effects within).  Navigate our ghostly corridors armed only with a small LED candle as swarms of monsters lurk just outside your range of vision!

Some of the effects and sets may be visible in the gloom, but much of your journey will be in darkness.

So grab your friends or that special someone and see if you’ve got what it takes to survive Brighton Asylum,…in the dark!

The Twitching Hour:

Experience “The Twitching Hour” at Brighton Asylum for a paranormal experience unlike any other!

Are you brave enough to explore the most spiritually active parts of Brighton Asylum with nothing but flashlights, the latest ghost hunting equipment, and your nerve? This bone chilling event takes place after the haunt closes for the evening (check our hours of operation) and lasts 2-3 hours with an experienced Brighton Asylum paranormal guide.

On nights the haunted houses are operating, its possible the start time may be delayed due to the unpredictable nature of knowing exactly when we will close our doors for the evening. Every effort is taken to begin as promptly as possible. Please check in with your tickets at the ticket booth upon arrival.

This is not a “haunted house” event with scare actors.  This is a real paranormal investigation with real ghost hunting equipment with real results…good, bad, or indifferent! 

The Hack Shack:

Experience the thrill of axe throwing with our all new  “The Hack Shack”.  Located adjacent to our “Fear Pressure” 5 minute escape room challenges, feel the thrill of throwing an axe at a wooden target.   No experience necessary! Our trained axe throwers will show you how to safely and properly throw an axe.

For ages  14 years of  age and up.  Those under 18 must be accompanied by an adult  guardian.

Fear Pressure:

Experience our all new escape room challenges where you and your group have only 5 minutes to escape intense situations where the clock is ticking, and the pressure is on! 4 ALL NEW and immersive experiences await for the 2019 haunt season!

Fracture VR:

Get ready for a mind bending experience with our ALL NEW “FractVRe”.  Experience one of two different virtual reality scenarios in an immersive motion simulation experience.  Our new Asylum and Seance experiences are now available.  Seats 2 at a time.

Time: 7:00 PM - 1:00 AM
