Very active Ghost Hunt! Love coming to this location to investigate and also leave with hands full of evidence!
The staff was very helpful. It’s nice to have the ghost hunting equipment available for use. The building is large with several good hotspots.
I enjoyed the team that hosted the event! Very very helpful and knowledgable. The location was very calm the night I went but I did have an experience in the pool where my friends and I were "chased" out of the pool and I was touched on the back of the neck. The only thing I did not like was the other guests in the group. They obviously were interested but did not seem very serious as they we talking loudly and making alot of unnecessary noise. I know my friends and I would love to join an actuall serious investigation. Otherwise, I had a good experience and again want to thank the team for coordinating the event.
True group of professionals. Also everyone is extremely kind and knowledgeable. I thoroughly enjoy every tour.
Hand down the best thing I have ever done!! I will definitely be doing the other investigations and I’m brining my family and friends!!
I had a good time and the ladies were very helpful and nice. I wish I would have experienced more activity, but I know that's uncontrollable. I also wish it was slightly more affordable. I'd like to do more, but definitely won't be able to for a little while.
I wish we could have gone in the basement. Also I thought the dousing rods was a little hoaky.
I enjoyed the evening but would have felt more comfortable if I had been told to bring a small flashlight, navigating stairs and such was a bit difficult. We were told that all the equipment would be provided, not available for a nonrefundable rental. You need to make that clear. Even during the explanation I understood that your $10 would be refunded. In the boiler room there were signs stating there was possible asbestos contamination. Might be prudent to restrict that area just for the liability aspect.
It would be nice to have water provided. Tell the participants in advance to bring a small flashlight. It was very difficult to see using the steps. DO NOT allow entrance into the boiler room. There were signs posted regarding asbestos contamination. I would think this exposure would invite your liability. When inquiring about the event, I was told there would be a seance at the end of the evening. Nothing was ever mentioned about it. We also thought we were renting equipment, not paying a nonrefundable $10 to use it. That distinction should be made initially when advertising. It states that equipment will be provided. It doesn't say "for a fee."
Staff was helpful, free gear and an interesting venue. I have been interested in the paranormal for a number years and have done a number of hunts already. I would like to know how I may join your team. Please advise Gwlistsafetyguy@gmail.com
So fun! Would love to investigate again with this group

Lack of paranormal events
Mark and his team were very experienced, presented an awesome history of the building, the stories of the three main spirits who reside and the walking tour prior to going off to investigate on our own. Providing the use of tools and very reasonable costs to purchase headlamps, cams and their willingness to assist anyone. This was one of the best Investigations I have been on. This group of investigators were extremely respectful of the spirits and when coming onto other investigators during their experience. Can't wait to go back! Only draw back is it's too short! I would have loved to have an option for an additional hour or two. AAA rating!!
