How Scary is Asylum Manila?

Last update: Sept 10, 2019

Everyone loves a good scare and in the Philippines, we have so many spook stories about ghosts and people that have the third eye. I don’t like to be spooked easily but I love seeing my friends being scared silly. I visited this scary new theme park in Manila called Asylum Manila.

Asylum Manila is the scariest haunted attraction in Manila which is based on an American style. It’s not an escape room where you are only in one room. In fact, they have over 50 rooms, hallways, and passages with heart-pumping scares, lunatic actors and real-life crazy poops for you to experience total fear and put your sanity to the test.


In 1939 the Asylum was established as the Country’s premier psychiatric institute for the criminally insane. At the time it was far from any crowds of Manila and many new government buildings were being set up in Quezon City in preparation for it becoming the Country’s new capital. It was said that all of the worst and most violent psychiatric patients were brought to this place where they can be treated and where it would be safe to keep them from escape.

At the time the Country was still part of the US commonwealth, the Asylum was headed by a Dr. Vanicutt, a renowned psychiatric doctor from Pennsylvania. He was joined by his beautiful wife and their young daughter Anastasia.

After a mysterious and tragic accident, Dr. Vanicutt’s wife was killed. Soon after her death Dr. Vanicutt sunk into a state of madness and insanity, some say he was even possessed. He tormented his patients, he conducted grotesque medical experiments and many died, evil consumed this place.

In 1941 when the Japanese invaded, they found what they thought was an abandoned building. After foolishly stationing a garrison of soldiers there they soon went insane and slaughtered each other. No one entered after that and the building was left to decay and ruin.

As the years passed the City grew up around the Asylum from time to time some unfortunate person would wander in the building to find shelter and they were never head of again. Such horrific acts were reported to have taken place there and it is said Dr. Vanicutt is still in there, torturing his patients, conducting his experiments and collecting their souls.

Now in 2019, the doors of the Asylum are open again, welcoming new patients. Enter and see if you can survive and discover the horrible truth about what happened in the Asylum!


As we park our car just across the road, we saw a scary old building with a dark aura and it feels like someone’s waiting for us inside.

While waiting for our turn, Dr. Vanicutt and other actors went out from the haunted house to scare us.

As we enter, the creepy nurses gave us safety reminders and instructions. They allowed us to bring our bag inside the Asylum but picture-taking isn’t allowed.

You can enter the house with a maximum of 6 people per group.


It cost 250 php if you’ll avail the photo.
