Questions

What is a ghost tour?
Our tours are a real life ghost story for you to experience first hand! You will meet your tour guide in a haunted town. Your tour guide will be entertaining, fun, and informative as you follow them to each haunted stop, hearing spooky tales of history and folklore. We offer to show you real haunted locations, real stories, and real paranormal. Eerie and spooky, our tours will send a chill down your spine. We are not a haunted house, but everything you experience will be real and paranormal. Are you ready to step into the haunted old west?

What is the difference between the family friendly and R rated version of the tour?
Our family friendly tours are edited especially for the squeamish, and are suitable for young audiences. Think of the Family tour as more of a campfire ghost story, and mainly a history tour. This tour is also only 1 hour long, and a shorter route through town.

The R rated tours are 1 hour and 30 minutes, and takes you to more locations. We do not hold back on the gruesome, dastardly, shocking tales, and give you the full version of the story.

In some locations it is also okay to bring alcoholic beverages, but please ask us before bringing them, as some locations do not allow it.

How long is the tour?

We offer three tours. Our Family Friendly tour is a 1 hour walking tour, while our R-Rated tours are 1 hour and thirty minutes long. We walk to each haunted spot, and some areas will have seating available while you are listening to the story.
