Spooky is the most neglected of the five basic human emotions: spooky, joy, sorrow, grouchy, and wet. Get horror glands pumping with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get one adult ticket to a haunted ghost tour from Ghost Party (a $30 value) in Ybor City.
Since 1996, Ghost Party has been offering guided tours of haunted hotels and spooky stores along the cobbled streets of many cities throughout the United States. Its engaging guides lead phantasm-chasers along two different walks of whimsy. The new Ghost Investigation Tour is a 90-minute exploration of eerie occurrences using the latest ghost-hunting equipment to detect any spirit activity or hidden loose change. Due to limited space, advance reservations for this tour are required. Ideal for connoisseurs of yesteryear, the 45-minute Haunted History Ghost Walk piles visitors into a family-friendly time machine, where they will have prime views of the haunts behind the town's 100-year-old historical architecture and storefronts. Ghostly tales of lost love and mysterious deaths provide fodder for the fear during this hair-raising outing, which allows guests to photograph many of the picturesque points of specter inspection. Tours take place at various times throughout the week; check out the schedule for both tours here.
To provide maximum enjoyment and intrigue, each location on both tours has been thoroughly researched and equipped with sunflower-seed vending machines so spectators can feed the ghosts. Apparitions that have been known to make an appearance include a young boy in period clothing playing pranks at a clothing store and a mystery nurse wandering the cellar of a hotel that was once a hospital morgue. Both tours are ideal for date nights, birthday parties, scaring away persistent hiccups, or a memorable Halloween activity.
Children under 13 years old are $15.
