Queue and Facade[edit | edit source]

Similar to American Horror Story at Halloween Horror Nights 26, on one of the walls of Soundstage 21 was a picture showing the nun featured in the marketing of Asylum, three of the witches from Coven and The Piggy Man from Roanoke. Inside the soundstage was another line and when you got through that line you were greeted with Briarcliff (The titular asylum from American Horror Story: Asylum).

After entering Briarcliff you see a Nun Statue on your left and your right standing on pedestals. The one on the right is a scareactor and she jumps out at you. After that you walk further into the asylum where you see Leo Morrison jumping out with his arm ripped off and Bloody Face coming out of an alcove soon after. After that you enter the rec room of the asylum where you see Frank McCann jump out with his throat slit. Walking further into the room you see Leigh Emerson in his Santa Costume appearing seemingly out of nowhere. The corpse of Sean and a static-figure of Daniel could also be seen in this room.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Charles Gray has said that he wanted The Doll room to be a little more immersive with the scent of baby powder to smell when walking in and the cast to be a bit more scarier but thought it was sort of a miss until experiencing it with a group of people and seen that the room was a success just the way it was to be scary and enjoyable.
  • Patrick Braillard dubbed this as the uber house, as it was 14 scenes long.
  • Apparently, any houses in the past that included barbwire fences (including this house) had a plastic bag on the top of it to give it a little bit of detail.
