BRAVING ‘THE ASYLUM’

A horde of Halloween hedonists headed into hell as they braved a bone-chilling scaremaze. Pleasure seekers were treated to one of the scariest interactive horror attractions seen in the U.K. staged inside a popular nightclub in the north-west.

Area 51 remodelled the popular Camp and Furnace club in Liverpool into “The Baltic Asylum,” a harrowing hospital where inmates had been kept locked up behind doors for decades.

And revellers out celebrating Halloween on Merseyside were given the opportunity for a never-to-be-forgotten tour of the facility’s most disturbing rooms, guided by a maniacal doctor sporting a blood-soaked tunic and fixed stare.

Screaming punters were led into the fray up a winding staircase at the club venue where the Halloween event was staged by Scare Projects. During the 20-minute-long walkabout experience in the dark, guests met with the ghastly sight of a plethora of patients, most of who were screaming and making threats while attempting to break-out of “The Asylum.”

Brilliant and stomach churning décor and props were installed at the venue by Area 51 creatives for the show which was staged nightly for a fortnight and a team of performers from the company were on site to bring the tale to life, headed by regular 51 actor Luka da Silva.
