Escape invites attendees to enter a sinister realm full of circus attractions and nightmarish characters where two nights of frights await. Burlesque dancers, tarot card readers, tight-rope walkers, and contortionists will provide amusements under the big top tents, while Needle Nurses, Wicked Witches, and Evil Clowns roam the grounds.

Escape’s 32,000 square-foot Asylum returns with 120 actors, 30 distinct rooms, 25 sound systems, and thousands of revelers who dare to enter. Each guest will be admitted into the ward at the physician’s request, where they’re dressed in a straight jacket and set aside in a padded holding cell. Nurses will escort each patient to the medication window where they’ll be fed their necessary pills and begin their journey through the Mad Hatter’s twisted mind.

The Asylum is Insomniac’s premier immersive theater experience equipped with movie-quality set designs, 360-degree special effects, and a fully-built facade featuring search lights, guard stations, towering gates, and steel walls. Each of the 30 terrifying environments brings a scene from Escape back to life from the Tea Party Room where the Wonderland characters first murder Alice, to the gruesome Blood Shower where Alice feeds her thirsty fiends.
