The Haunted Adventure has been an unbelievably scary tour of the Old Grimsby & Streaper Casket Company; a firm that was run by the two men since 1891 until they mysteriously vanished; since 2001 when it first opened its doors on the Grand Strand.

Beginning October 2nd, the old casket company has been renovated and added to, to create Ripley’s Asylum.  This asylum isn’t like others it is deeper and darker than any other you may have experienced.  The scene is set with Dr. Norman Kilt and his surgical experiments to treat and cure the criminally insane.  More live actors and other special effects have been added to this terrifying experience.

“The Asylum” opens beginning October 2nd and is open Wednesday-Friday 4pm-close and Saturday – Sunday 1pm-close.
