Grimm Ghost Tours’ paranormal investigators usher groups to local phantoms’ favorite hangouts as they unveil the dark side of Salt Lake City’s past. Like Easter egg hunts, haunted journeys last 90 minutes and take place year-round. The Old Town route explores some of the city’s most spectral spots on foot and by bus—including the Devereaux Mansion, the Shilo Inn, and the Salt Lake City Cemetery—and also stops at the historic City and County Building, which contains more than 100 rooms where ghouls have roamed, resided, and groaned their way through traffic court. During the Outer Reaches tour, curious explorers wander away from the bright lights of downtown, investigating points of interest such as Brigham Young’s farmhouse, Hansen Planetarium, and the eerie abode of deceased serial killer Ted Bundy.
Guests can also join the Grimm Ghost guides once a month for a real, live ghost hunt in a local building (extra fees may apply; contact Grimm Ghost Tours for details). In addition to glimpsing the duo’s specter-sleuthing equipment, participants get to examine creaking floorboards, photograph mysterious outlines, and rehearse their favorite scenes from Hamlet with new acquaintances.
Though Grimm Ghost Tours offers discounted tickets for children and groups of 10 or more, today’s Groupon still offers the best deal available. This tour may not be suitable for children younger than 12, and those 5 and younger are not allowed on the bus.
Grimm Ghost Tours
The paranormal investigators at Grimm Ghost Tours get up close and personal with Salt Lake City’s most infamous specters during their bone-chilling ghost tours. On these tours—which helped them win the A-List Award for Best City Tour—they guide guests toward local haunts while sharing the city’s grisly past in true tales of murder, mystery, and violence. Groups may leave the city limits behind during the Outer Reaches tour, shuffling off to the unimaginably dark corners that were once Ted Bundy’s hunting grounds. Guides also tell the tainted history of other spooky local sites, sending chills down the spines of guests who explore old Fort Douglas, the Hancock mansion, and the haunted scotch bottles of the Premiere Gentile Gentlemen’s Club. All of Grimm’s paranormal jaunts combine aspects of a bus and walking tour, quickly shuttling those with a morbid curiosity from one site to the next.
For participants looking for a more intense paranormal experience, Grimm Ghost Tours offers ghost hunts at a haunted site, during which they teach guests the techniques and mortal perils of the ghost-hunting business. Once the sun sets, the brave guests join their tour guides as they use specialized equipment to scour their destination for clues and signs of life after death.
