Will this be scary?
While the subject matter is quite creepy and macabre, our standard ghost tour can be best thought of as meriting a PG-13 rating –– this lets us raise or lower the fear factor depending who is on the tour! There are NO jump scares on the tour.
How much walking will there be?
This tour covers approximately 1 mile, with periods of standing for up to 15 minutes; guests will be walking or standing throughout the entire two-hour tour.
Is this appropriate for children?
While we try to adjust for our younger guests, think of the tour as a PG-13 scary movie. If your youngsters can handle that, they’ll have a blast on this tour.
How many people will there be on the tour?
This tour will max out at 10–12 guests. We pride ourselves on small group sizes so you’ll never be a part of one of those massive tour groups!
What if it’s raining?
Our tours run rain or shine; please bring an umbrella or poncho in order to stay dry during the tour. If the weather is severe enough that it poses a danger, we will call you to explain our decision and discuss alternatives (this is why it’s very important to list a good cell phone number when booking online!). If we cancel a tour because of severe weather, all guests will be given a full refund.
Should we eat before the tour?
The tour flows from place to place, so stopping for food will not be possible. We HIGHLY recommend that you have a decent meal before the tour and we will give you great recommendations for afterward!
