For the Thrill of It
There is something both terrifying and thrilling about a ghost hunt. Is anyone there? Is it just a figment of your imagination? What is that figure in the background of your photo? These are all questions you can expect to ask yourself during your ghost tour at the historic Crescent hotel.
To start, make your way up to the majestic old staircase to the top of the hotel where the ghost tour begins. Guided by an enthusiastic storyteller, you will hear a mix of fun, fact, and drama throughout the tour.
Climbing the stairs between floors and winding through the maze of hallways to see where the stories took place will keep your kids engaged and their cameras clicking.
Towards the end of the tour, you will be led to the basement of the hotel and given the opportunity to explore the morgue that once housed the deceased from the hotel’s time as a “Cancer Clinic” under the ownership of Norman Baker in 1937. The bravest souls even have the chance to be shut in the morgue for a few moments, with the lights off!
Check out footage from the thermal imaging camera during the Ghost Hunters investigation.
After the tour ends, spend time walking around the hotel, perusing the gift shop to commemorate your haunted visit and checking out photos other guests have captured of unearthly visitors at the hotel.
