In 1940s, the Brighton Asylum was home to mentally unstable and psychologically damaged individuals until it closed in 1952. According to its website, the decision to close the industrial complex was due to staff disappearances, gross medical experiments, harsh living conditions of the patients, and the nearby residential areas’ claims of hearing screams during the night.
The website added that the Brighton Asylum’s doctors and medical staff were drove to insanity after trying to get into the minds of their patients. Some were recorded to have been “clawing their own skin off, pulling their teeth out, cutting their eyelids off, and performing surgeries on themselves and each other.”
Today, 59 years after its closure, Brighton Asylum opened its doors as a haunted attraction with thousands of visitors entering its vicinity in search for a creepy adventure. Brighton Asylum remains open until the last ticketed guest completes all purchased attractions.
