    The Northland Asylum at the ScareAtorium is introducing Speed Dating with our patients. Guests will have 3 to 5 seconds of brief conversation with our confined patients in their cells as you traverse the halls of the Asylum. Doctor Collins, Operator of the Northland Asylum; said "While we don't normally encourage visitors to engage in conversation with our demented patients, most of our patients probably won't be aware of your presence, but we feel the public might enjoy the possibility of meeting someone with similar interest."...

    Doctor Collins, emphasized "Asylum guards will be present to attempt to ensure the safety of our guests and patients during your tour." He went on to say "Guards will endeavor to contain our patients and prevent any additional activity, but guests must sign a release form before entering the Asylum."

    The Northland Asylum at the ScareAtorium will be open Thursday through Sunday nights. See the website www.ColumbusHauntedHouse.com
    for hours of operation and directions. The Northland Asylum has been resurrected on the former site of this once horrid hospital (circa 1899 to 1956). The original Asylum was condemned and demolished after Dr Robert Collins died, but his family has rebuilt the Asylum on the former grounds. Artifacts and video footage from the original Asylum are on display in the entry foyer.

    This is a very scary attraction. The Northland Asylum is not recommended for anyone with a heart condition, pregnancy or mentally challenged individuals.

    FYI, this was a press release we sent out promoting our haunt. Had several calls from members of the news media and a couple from readers of this forum. No, we aren’t actually hosting speed dating. Notice the time allotted for conversation was 3 – 5 seconds. Which is a little more than most people spend in our scenes with our demented performers (residents). We’ve been very fortunate to have received a tremendous amount of media coverage this year. My wife, Neena Collins, has been working very hard on our press releases and it shows!

    The live streaming camera (running on our local ABC station web site) in one of our scenes has been helpful getting people into our haunt. We’ve moved it a couple times to different scenes to keep people guessing where it is. The station has reported some people are watching it for hours. It’s fun watching people getting scared.

    Hope everyone is having a great season!
