Park City was founded as a mining town, filled with miners that purportedly drank, gambled, frequented brothels, and committed crimes. Park City Ghost Tours? guides delve into this illicit history during 70-minute walking tours. They investigate the sites most known for hauntings and chills while relaying the harrowing history of each. Tours begin nightly at 7 p.m., when the sun is thoroughly below the horizon and it gets harder to tell the difference between a zombie and a parking meter.
The Mystery Theater at the Castle of Chaos puts a different spin on the typical murder-mystery show. When guests arrive, instead of filing into assigned seats, they step directly onto the set. And they're not passive observers either; they're encouraged to jump into the investigation, questioning the characters they meet and searching the room for clues. These clues might prompt a character to share more information, helping them to determine whodunit. In the final scene, the cast reveals whether the audience has correctly identified the perp or allowed someone to get away with murder.
