Nightmares Manila – PH’s newest haunted attraction

Nightmares Manila Haunted Attraction

There’s always been a lure to the haunted houses and alike. Something that makes us want to go inside and check what’s there, even if we don’t know what’ll scare the bejesus out of us. So, what make these thrilling experiences so entertaining? Indeed, we got a good scare at Asylum Manila in 2019, but the same terrifying aficionados are back to give us the newest Nightmares Manila. It is their another walk-through horror attraction sought Filipinos and foreigners to visit its haunted houses. Moreover, Nightmares Manila is featuring horror film-style surprises and Hollywood-quality special effects. So you will surely feel like a main character in an actual horrifying movie show! They are open daily from 4 PM-12 MN (I say try going there around 10-11 PM for creepier feels). Furthermore, this attraction opened May 27 at the same location to give you an early Halloween group activities.

A glimpse of ASYLUM MANILA

Before the COVID-19, ASYLUM MANILA has been serving surreal thrilling experience to everyone looking for extreme jump scares. Its bleak surroundings, combined with actors who perfected their roles, made for an ideal bonding experience for those looking for different kind of “night-life”. However just like almost all of the business, Asylum Manila had to close when pandemic restrictions were set. Apparently, two years later, they came back and ready to welcome Filipinos to an even more harrowing experience with its larger location in Paranaque City. In addition to the mechanism, they employ Filipino theater artists to help bring about realistic experience. The attraction highlights their two haunted houses, four escape rooms, a cafe, and a lot more! They also have a “Behind the Scenes Tour,” which allows visitors to get a firsthand look at what it’s like to work at a haunted attraction. This attraction is now called Nightmares Manila.

THE NIGHTMARES HAUNTED HOUSE

The Nightmares Haunted House is the main attraction at Nightmares Manila. This is based on a made-up story about a husband and wife who adopted a foreboding child and then forsaken their home. You’ll be greeted a very shaky elevator going to the haunted house.
