Baldwin Asylum Haunted Attraction – Voted THE #1 Visitors Favorite Haunted House in 2020! Challenging its customers to survive 10,000 square feet of sheer terror as it enters its 9th season, the Asylum opens Saturday, September 25 and continues weekends through Halloween.

Baldwin Asylum is located at 2040 Lon Drive in the Taylor Studios building, behind Pizza Hut in Rantoul. Face coverings, hand sanitizing, & a temperature less than 100.4 F, are all required for entry. There is indoor waiting and entertainment!
