03-23-2007…..The Final Farewell

With all the fun fall activates, ghost tours, and haunted houses this time of year… I always get a little chocked up when I think of our beloved Rocky Point Haunted House. Any of you from Utah will know exactly what I’m talking about!!

It was hands down THE BEST haunted house in not only Utah, but in the Untied States (ok I may be a little bias there)….but it was truly awesome!

As a tribute to them….Please select the link (the title of this post) and view their final farewell website!

R.I.P. Rocky Point….you will (and are) missed by all.

Strangling Brothers Circus….

We had an awesome opportunity to attend the Grand Opening of Strangling Brothers Haunted Circus, the newest haunted house in Draper Utah… It is a circus themed spook alley with a cool new concept. It boasts more than 20 tractor trailers and a huge big top tent all of which are filled with nonstop terror!! It spans an entire acre, and lets face it clowns are just plain scary.

It is located at 98 East 13800 South Draper Utah

Open Mon - Thur; 7:30- 10:00 pm
Fri - Sat; 7:30-Midnight

Park City Ghost Tours….

It’s that time again my friends, time to go out and participate in your local ghost tours! Most major cities offer them and they are a good way to learn a little bit more about local “hot spots”… They are a fun, and Non-threatening way to be a ghost hunter!!

Here is the information for the Park City Utah Ghost tour….

Is My Home Haunted???

This is a question we get quite often, no one wants to jump to conclusions and declare a home haunted. The reality of paranormal activity is exciting for some, and terrifying for others. Here are some of the basic questions we ask people when confronted with this question…

Have you recently lost a family member or close friend?
Has anything like this happened before?
Do you seem to lose important items and they show up again later?
De pets (such as dogs or cats) avoid and seem afraid of certain areas of the home?
Do lights or televisions turn on and of by themselves?
Have you heard someone call your name when you are home alone?
Do you feel as though you are being watched?
Have members of the family used a Ouija board or similar items in the home?
Do photographs in the home appear with unexplained mists or orbs?

Is any member of your family involved with the occult or participated in any form of Satan worshiping?

Is your home built near any sort of cemetery, or otherwise sacred land?

Have there been any murders, or other dark activities take place in your home in the past?

These are just a few of the questions we will ask people when they think they might have something paranormal going on. If you answered yes to any or all of these questions then you might consider contacting a local paranormal investigator, or talking to your local clergy.

2011 Ghost Hunting Season

As the prime ghost hunting season is upon us our team is getting together to plot out our research areas. We will be returning to the old Miners Cemetery near Copperton, and we still have unfinished business at the Ft. Douglass Cemetery (last time out we experienced a total equipment failure due to a nasty electrical storm).

We are open for suggestions, that means YOU our faithful followers….(all 3 of you) Ha ha ha…If you know of any haunted spots in the Salt Lake area please feel free to send in your suggestions!

With our favorite holiday just around the corner we wanted to add a few fun posts about the season and its origins!

Here is some cool information about the Jack-o-Lanterns

A jack-o'-lantern is typically a carved pumpkin. It is associated chiefly with the holiday of Halloween and was named after the phenomenon of strange light flickering over peat bogs, called ignis fatuus or jack-o'-lantern. In a jack-o'-lantern, typically the top is cut off, and the inside flesh then scooped out; an image, usually a monstrous face, is carved onto the outside surface, and the lid replaced. At night, a light is placed inside to illuminate the effect. (Sources taken from Wikipedia)
