Dr. Joseph Schmall, a preeminent psychiatrist in the early 1900’s, opened the Joseph Schmall Asylum with the mission to provide rehabilitation to the soldiers returning from the First Great War suffering from shell shock. These men bore the bloody stains of death and their souls were tainted by its stench.
The problem soon became that the further the good doctor delved into the minds of these damaged men, his own began to falter and twist. Soon his methods could barely be called “practicing medicine” but rather become more akin to torture. Torture which he came to enjoy. And his pleasure is never so great as it is when you hear the toll of the clock tower, for this means another patient is ….”cured”. The good doctor, who started his practice to help those burned by the flames of hell, slowly, became Hell’s Gatekeeper.
Come venture forth into the mind of Joseph Schmall and into the Hell’s Gates. Experience the sins that destroyed his psyche. Come, traverse through his greed, lust, pride, sloth, envy, gluttony, and his wrath. Can you find redemption before the bell tolls? Or will you be “cured” by him as well?
The Black-out Maze
– Imagine rustling corn, howling coyotes and a full moon setting the stage for a terrifying walk through over two miles of twisting, turning and dead end trails. Shadows appear – then disappear. Noises are heard in the distance, but seem to be getting closer. Is something out there or is it just your imagination? You are on your own in the Black-out Maze – NO lights – NO maps – and NO one will hear you scream!
The Joseph Schmall Asylum for the Criminally Insane
Opening in the 20th Century, the Asylum was supposed to be a place to help the growing mentally ill population mostly, suffering from Shell Shock, now known as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder from World War I in America. It closed after 100 years due to unconfirmed accusations of inhumane practices and lack of proper supervision. Orderlies and patients were mysteriously disappearing. Those still there started to report seeing the missing and hearing them in the dead of night. Paranormal reporters came, despite
warnings. Most needed to be institutionalized after their stay, being found babbling, muttering, and screaming incoherent nonsense. Beware your entry. They roam the hall and still can’t be tamed. Good luck!
NOTE – These attractions are NOT recommended for children 12 yrs and younger. Parental discretion is advised.
