Spooky Ghost Hunting Locations
You’ve probably seen the must-see television shows like “Ghost Hunters” and “Ghost Adventures” featuring paranormal-crazed groups chasing after spirits. During the pre-Halloween weeks, join a ghost hunting group, grab your flashlights, cameras and voice recorders and you’ll be set to obtain proof of any ghosts that you might encounter. Here are some of the spookiest locations in America perfect for paranormal investigations that will get your heart pounding, your blood boiling and offer some prime encounters for ghost sightings!
Parties of ghost hunters can get their chase on all throughout Savannah, Ga. Considered America’s most haunted city, Savannah lets ghost hunters experience some haunted locations through activities like ghost walks, historic tours, cemetery tours and candlelit walks. Hunters must definitely visit the Bonaventure Cemetery with its famous angelic statues and haunted homes like the Olde Pink House and the Sorrel-Weed House.
The Stanley Hotel
The Stanley Hotel has already opened its deadly doors in the movie “The Shining,” but this Colorado hotel already had a spook factor of its own without the help of the movie. Ghost hunting groups can experience the hotel’s spookiness through a Hotel Historic Ghost Tour. Tour spots on the grounds include room #217, the room which inspired “The Shining,” a walk through the underground tunnel and even ghost stories of the many different paranormal sightings.
Ohio State Reformatory
As the setting of “The Shawshank Redemption,” the Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield, Ohio is a prison and the place of hundreds of inmate deaths both self-inflicted, sickness and violence related. From May through September, guests can take various tours including self-guided, Hollywood and ghost tours. During October, guests up for some Halloween fun can sign up for the Haunted Prison Experience, a haunted house style tour complete with actors, animatronics and props.
Eastern State Penitentiary
Built in the early 1800s, the Eastern State Penitentiary is a ghost hunters dream with all of its long hallways, scary walls and shadowy cellblocks. Once the home of notorious murderers and criminals like Al Capone and Morris Bolber, this is the setting of the massive haunted Halloween prison, “Terror Behind the Walls,” for nighttime scaring. Ghost hunting groups can book their appointment in advance and even conduct their hunt during the haunted house.
