Welcome to the Borley Haunted Mansion! We're so glad you came. Please come inside and look around.
—Narrator of the Borley Haunted Mansion

The Borley Haunted Mansion is an amusement park attraction introduced in Silent Hill 3 and reappeared in the comic Among the Damned.

Silent Hill 3

The Borley Haunted Mansion is an attraction within Lakeside Amusement Park that is briefly visited by Heather Mason, and must be passed in order to reach the carousel. The mansion consists of six rooms, three of which are rigged as a horror attraction. The final two rooms are actually long, trick hallways, which Heather must use to escape a deadly red mist closing in from behind her.

Throughout the mansion, Heather is guided by a narrator. Though the voice sounds typical of a theme park horror attraction, with a campy, almost comical tone, the Otherworld's influence seems to have permeated even that and he speaks to Heather specifically and threateningly. There is also a dead body in the third room which the voice explains is the body of a man named Danny from New Orleans who came to the house after losing his way. Upon examination Heather realizes that the body is real, leaving the player to wonder if the narrator's story is true and Danny was a man who became a victim of the Otherworld.

If Heather fails to escape the haunted mansion in the final hallways, she will automatically die from the dangerous red mist.

Among the Damned

Jason, a young man trapped in Silent Hill, follows a woman named Dahlia into the Haunted Mansion. Inside, she is standing in front of a large congregation of creatures, one of which stabs a sword-like leg through her stomach. Jason pulls Dahlia to safety, firing his shotgun at the creatures as he flees.

Trivia

  • The name "Borley Haunted Mansion" is a reference to the Borley Rectory, a mansion located in England famous for paranormal phenomena.
  • In one of the rooms, the ceiling, studded with metal spikes, is "meant" to fall and squash Heather, but stops short of Heather's head. In "hard" mode, Heather must duck (by holding R2) in order to dodge the ceiling and avoid instant death.
  • The hallways with the red glow are a nod to the film Session 9, which game developers have cited as an inspiration for the game. In the film, one of the characters, a nyctophobe (fear of the dark), must quickly run through a tunnel as the lights behind him begin shutting off. The sound heard during Heather's run can also be heard in the same scene of the movie.
  • The life-size doll rocking in the seat, next to Danny, almost resembles Harry Mason when Heather finds him in their apartment.
  • The red glow bears a striking resemblance to the Void in Silent Hill: Downpour, and may have served as an influence.
  • When endeavoring the escape the impending red mist at the end of the haunted mansion, if the player has the bulletproof vest equipped on "normal" mode, it is imperative to take it off Heather. The vest slows her down and makes reaching the exit unscathed impossible, as it will kill her in only a few seconds.
