Enjoy this spooky Historic Ghost Hunt Cemetery Tour of Elgin, IL slide show
Think this haunted tour of Elgin, IL is just another Halloween event? YOU'RE DEAD WRONG. Because this 4-hour guided van and walking tour of haunted history takes you INSIDE the most insanely haunted, terrifying cemeteries of Elgin, Illinois to get HANDS ON experience with a whole ghost hunter's toybox of equipment . . . in the dead of night!

Bring flashlights, cameras and nerves of steel as you walk through four haunted sites where the unquiet dead tries to reach out to the living:

• CHANNING PARK/CHANNING SCHOOL was built over Elgin's first cemetery. The stones were moved but the corpses are still there.

• Enjoy a nerve-shattering stroll in BLUFF CITY CEMETERY, a gothic haunted cemetery featured in A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET Part 5.

• BONUS SITE! For over a century at the Elgin State Mental Hospital, the depressed and unwanted were locked in with deranged, evil psychopaths, subjected to inhumane "cures" of shocking brutality. The lost souls and eternally damned alike gather at HELL'S BACK GATE longing to escape. An exceptionally active site!

• And the grand finale...the long-abandoned ELGIN STATE MENTAL HOSPITAL PAUPERS' CEMETERY. It's said a dark entity rules here, one so dangerous that it's been closed to all, both night and day. We have exclusive access, but because of very real natural dangers we do not walk among the gravestones. And yet--gazing out over the fog-shrouded, secluded burial grounds is still too disturbing for most.

Nothing is rigged or staged, but SOMETHING once tried to board the bus to join our ghost hunt tour one night! We take precautions, but offer no assurances. Are you afraid? If you're not yet, you will be.

$80 per adult, reservations required.

SMALLER TOUR SIZES! Min 6, max 14 per van.

Van dearly departs from Retro-a-GoGo,
225 E. Chicago St., Elgin, IL 60120.

3-HOUR GHOST HUNT EXPERIENCE: BLUFF CITY CEMETERY
Don't miss this rare experience hunting ghosts inside Bluff City Cemetery at night, with authentic Extremely Low Frequency ghost meters clutched in your hands, and an experienced paranormal investigator and/or psychic medium at your side. Your mission? To capture hard evidence of life after death like those ghost hunting TV shows!

• Feel a corpse-cold finger of fear slither down your spine as the ELF ghost meter in your hand suddenly flashes a warning of an invisible presence materializing silently nearby.

• Hear the voices of the dead coming through on the SB7 Spirit Box. Is it calling you by name?

• Patiently watch for the many Shadow People to break the eerie green beams of a laser light grid as the follow our tours, watch from the hilltops, and occasionally touch you with icy fingers.

• Try not to scream as the trigger doll's hands and face light up, detecting a strong electric current--with no natural source for miles around.

• In addition to the ELF ghost meter you're provided with at the start of the tour, you'll have a chance to get hands on training in the ancient art of dowsing rods in paranormal communication.

• Discuss the latest theories on the paranormal with experienced investigators, learn paranormal photography tips from an award-winning photographer, spot the Shadowmen as the psychic medium points them out to you, hear their encounters, share yours with them!

PLEASE NOTE: Nothing is rigged or staged, no one jumps out at you. Any hint of disrespect to the dead is NOT tolerated. Though granted full access, we voluntarily restrict all our activities exclusively to the historic sections of the cemetery.

Untouched images taken by paranormal photographer Mike Smith, May 4th, 2014, 9:12 PM at Bluff City Cemetery with the Raggedy Anne emf trigger doll. Light on top of the cabin roof was a flashlight that inexplicably turned itself on just as the ribbon-like anomaly passed by.
