Asylum Haunted Hospital Tickets on Sale Now!!!

You can now purchase Asylum Haunted Hospital tickets online.  They are $5 each.  Click here to make your purchase.

Open next on Thursday, October 24th at 7PM

One week until opening night (10/18) of The Asylum Haunted Hospital (aka Asylum) presented by Ocoee Lions Club. Will you be coming to visit our patients, Sister Mary, Father Joel, and Dr. Stone?

This haunted hospital is unique as it is in 99% darkness and all you have is a small flashlight to light your way through the halls of the Asylum. As well as we are a 4D haunt this year. Are you brave enough to try it?

This year at the Asylum we will be offering, from 7 to 7:30PM, a “lights on”, “no loud music”, “no flashing lights”, “no jumping out at guest” and “no scare” period for those that want to experience the haunted hospital but may not be able to otherwise.  This would be perfect for younger children, children (or adults) with autism or other sensory disorders, and/or those with physical, emotional, or mental disabilities. Our goal is to allow everyone to have a great Halloween season and help a local charity in the process. From 7:30 to 10PM will be full scare.

We will be open on October 18, 19, 24, 25, 26, and 30. Entry fee is $5. You can now purchase tickets for The Asylum at the door (cash or Square) or ahead of time online: https://squareup.com/store/ocoeelionsclub/item/the-asylum-haunted-hospital. The proceeds of this house go to the Ocoee Lions Foundation which is a tax-exempt, 501(c)(3), non-profit organization. Reminder we take donations of all used eyeglasses, readers, sunglasses (prescription and non-prescription), soft eyeglass cases, hearing aids, and socks (for the homeless). Those items are used to help those in need. Thank you ahead of time for your donation.

There will be FREE face painting and balloon making for the kids.  On select nights we will also have food vendors present. Additionally, on October 18th the cast and crew of XL 106.7 will be present as a stop on their 13 Day Halloween tour.
