The staff was extremely nice and very knowledgeable. We had activity in several locations. Pizza and drinks were provided as well. Overall a fantastic night!!!
Always an excellent time doing the public ghost hunts at OSR. The tours before the ghost hunt are so informative and really help with finding your way around during the actual ghost hunt. The staff are friendly and always willing to help you find a location or give you tips about spots where they've experienced paranormal activity. Will definitely attend another in the future!
The staff were very polite, competent, professional, and fun to be around. They provide plenty of pizza and drinks throughout the night. We had access to about 90% of the facility. Felt very free while exploring the facility. Staff were around, but not breathing down your neck. Most attendees were very considerate. One will always encounter the occasional idiot in any endeavor.
The volunteers and guides/staff were all friendly, helpful and made you feel comfortable in what could be a tense situation for some. I and the group I was with all experienced some paranormal activity. We want to come back and do it again.
This was our first hunt. The staff was absolutely amazing, extremely knowledgeable and helpful! We were so pleased with our experience. We were able to capture some responses via the spirit box, images in pictures and had an amazing flashlight communication session with a spirit. We will definitely be back!
Great staff, informative teaching, and absolutely amazing experience overall!!
Everyone was very helpful and nice. The tour at the beginning was very helpful, because it gave advice as to where the "hot spots " may be.
Definitely worth the trip up there
I enjoyed it very much ! I loved seeing the history of the building and enjoyed experiencing different things during the ghost hunt ! Thank you so much
We really enjoyed the entire experience from beginning to end. The staff were very knowledgeable and helpful. We will definitely be going again.
The guides were very helpful explained a lot of the history of the building to us let us know what to do to try to get a ghost or Spirit make their presents I learned a lot
This was my first ghost hunt. I enjoyed it very much. I got some very interesting photos and felt different temperature changes. The staff was AWESOME!!! Very pleasant, knowledgeable, and friendly.
The guides were very approachable, knowledgeable about the history of the property! Also very friendly!
Exceeded my expectations!! The staff was great and made it an A++++ experience. Can't wait to return!!
This place was amazing. It was my first time ever coming here. We did a public ghost hunt. The staff was very friendly and helpful and very respectful. The place is massive on the inside and you can go pretty much whenever you want to explore. Some spots may be chained off or locked up due to obvious harm to anyone. Before the night was done we were already planning a return trip for a private tour. Most definitely will be coming back here!
Too many people at the event. Smaller numbers would make ghost hunting easier.
The staff was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I really enjoyed watching a medium converse with the spirit of an inmate in the old solitary confinement. It was a night I'll never forget!
Our tour guide Robert was awesome! He was very knowledgable and made it fun for us while learning about the different rooms. As far as the investigating is concerned, we got some amazing evidence as well as experiences...rocks being thrown, voices, footsteps etc. Well worth the trip! We are looking to do a private haunt tour very soon! Thanks for the experience!
The hole experience was incredible definitely will be going back staff was awesome
While the experience was still fun, the "professionalism" as far as actual ghost hunting wasn't very good. There was no structure on where participants were which caused interference where ever you went. If groups were split off and in one spot for a certain amount of time and then rotated through stations I think this problem could largely be solved. The atmosphere was fun, and I'd do it again, i would just know to have different expectations than I had this time. It would also be helpful to go over some basic ghost hunting etiquette for those who have never gone ghost hunting, such as no whispering so things caught on the recorder aren't just other people whispering.
Fantastic experience with the hunt and staff. Can't wait to come back soon.
I found the history of the Ohio State Reformatory to be very interesting and exploring the building itself was enjoyable. It was a unique experience I would recommend to others.
We would love to come again! Our entire group had lots of strange experiences!
Although we didn't get any paranormal experiences I thought that the staff was very nice and helpful. This was the first ghost hunt that my fiance and I have ever done! It was really cool to be able to get multiple types of tours and to wonder around ourselves. We will definitely recommend the OSR to others and I'm sure we will be back in the future with more friends for a private ghost hunt. The only thing I would have liked was a larger variety of items in the gift shop.
The staff was very helpful. My husband is a fire chief for our community. He Was dealing with an overturned boat and possible drowning. We are 2 hours away The staff was very considerate as he was trying to deal with this via phone.
