Ghosts have little hope of defending themselves against Hollywood’s horror-movie smear campaign, since they can only communicate through Ouija boards and haunted bowls of alphabet soup. Learn the true nature of these spirits with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get one ticket to a walking tour from Historic Indiana Ghost Walks & Tours (up to a $15 value). This Groupon is not valid for bus tours.
The owners and supernatural collaborators of Historic Indiana’s paranormal walking tours raise goose bumps on the thickest of skins by ushering visitors through Indianapolis’s spooky locales, including haunted cemeteries and the former stomping grounds of serial killers. Before stopping for photo-ops with creepy-looking stop signs, open-eared pedestrians listen to eerie stories based on investigative anecdotes and personal experiences. The Chilling Chatham Arch-Lockerbie tour explores Indianapolis's theater district, where Cockroach Row and Jolly Werner are said to have caused mayhem before and after their deaths. Weary neck hairs need not apply to the Haunted Indianapolis ghost walk, which explains the crimes of a Midwestern murderer and the dance-fight techniques of gangs from the early 1900s.
All scheduled tours of 25–40 people are great for thrill-seeking families, though each requires reservations and nerves of corrugated steel. Walking tours last approximately 1.5 hours—a mere second in the life of a ghost, but long enough to instill ample fear in the hearts of foolish mortals.
