Someone Let the Crazies Out...and they are at your doorstep! Allow Amhurst Asylum to take you through a world of fright and madness as Dr. Amhurst’s experiments run free through this once well-known Insane Asylum.

This October, be the first to enter this old abandoned hospital for the criminally insane! Enter the mind of our Dr. Amhurst and his mutilated nurses as you venture deep into pure horror. His experiments will leave you speechless. Literally!

The Legend of Dr. Amhurst:
Once a picture perfect medical practice in the Midwest, the Amhurst Psychiatric Hospital was shut down by authorities nearly four decades ago. On the premises they found the remains of over two dozen victims, many with their organs harvested, others kept alive by crude methods of life support. Many rooms of the hospital contained unethical human experiments performed illegally by the hospital’s leading surgeon and founder, Dr. John Amhurst. The debauchery against humanity found within those hospital walls horrified the local people, press and families of the victims. The culprit Dr. Amhurst was nowhere to be found. Police did however find what could only be described as “pieces of woman” believed to be Dr. Amhurst’s late wife.

It was later discovered that Dr. Amhurst’s wife suffered from a rare disease, a type of degenerative disorder similar to mad cow disease that generally has only been found in indigenous people. This disease infected her body and organs, causing them to rot and deteriorate. Without the approval the hospital board and his peers Dr. Amhurst began performing many illegal experiments attempting to transplant new organs and limbs into and onto his wife’s body attempting to save her life. He used hospital facilities and his own mental patients in his twisted experiments. Finally one patient managed to escape alerting the authorities of the horror she’d be subjected too, though few would believe her story until they saw it firsthand.

Dubbed by the locals as The Amhurst Asylum, the building has now been abandoned for decades and Dr. Amhurst was never found. Throughout the years many have tried to break into the old Amhurst Asylum, attempting to see if any remnants were left behind, testing the myth. Many who enter the Amhurst Asylum mysteriously disappear. Do you have what it takes to survive The Amhurst Asylum?! Email Haunt Owner

  • Email Verified Totally full of entertainment/live animal

    The wait line is entertaining with characters, the scenes are full of details, actors are great ready to make you laugh or make you pee your pants with scares throughout!! The make-up is really cool. They even have a live skunk in an eerie but cool outside setting that is inside! The "Kitty" was so cool to actually pet! Everything/ Everyone entertained/scared our group! Definately bringing more friends out next weekend! So worth the trip to visit here!!

  • A Top Haunt Worth Visiting

    This haunt just gets BETTER AND BETTER each year! The acting is absolutely phenomenal. If you're not scared, you will certainly be entertained! This is a psychological haunt and you will know it. The makeup, costumes, and the intricate detailing of each room in this (enormous) haunt is beautiful. Amhurst Asylum has got to be one of the top haunts in the nation in regards to its lovely acting and artistic values.

  • Amazing

    This haunt is by far one of my favorite. I know some of the actors and it's not easy to scare me and let me tell you, they scared the crap out of me. I will go back next year and the year after. The actors are phenomenal! To name a few the main character in the elevator, is hilarious and makes you very uncomfortable at the same time!! Then some boy making whale jokes as well as a dark hallway with a scary girl on the ground and climbing near you. CREEPY!! Can't wait to take my older brother!
