Legend tells us that, in the 1880s, when Bonner Springs was a busy trading post called Tiblow, a large cemetery took up what's now Third Street and Cedar. Years later, when the headstones and the bodies belonging to wealthy families were moved to make way for construction, some 150 sets of remains went unclaimed and were left behind, under a school. In 1983, the school closed permanently and sat empty, gutted and untouched for years — just right to eventually house a four-story, 15,000-square-foot spook factory. The 3rd Street Asylum is filled with elements essential to primal fear: clowns, a blood-spattered dentist's office, pig parts, drills, chainsaw-wielding maniacs, a set of twins. In the 20 minutes it takes to make it through the place and get past about 35 local actors, you learn a little about your psychological limits. "Fear involves all of the senses," says Steve Hoffine of JMS Entertainment, the local production company that runs the venue for Bonner Springs Parks and Recreation. "We leave none of them untouched."
