Hannibal Nectar

KG and Ring get silly as they pose out front. According to Rebecca Jordan Director at the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum, there was a patient who suffered kleptomania, a mental disorder compelling it's sufferers to steal items for no apparent reason, in the facility. He would steal things from all around the Asylum and bury them on the grounds.

KG and Ringy are off to two of the scariest places in America — the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum and the Waverly Hills Sanatorium — to dig up some nectar. First, the Diggers visit the Waverly Hills Sanatorium where, before there was a cure, thousands of tuberculosis patients were held and died. Next, they check into the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum, where they explore the crawlspace underneath the building after visiting an open area they call the “Hannibal Nectar” sector.
