Though nothing is more terrifying than realizing you still know all the words to Lionel Richie's Hello by heart, haunted city tours come in a pretty close second. Scare away such unfortunate personal truths with today's Groupon: for $28, you get admission to the Haunted Vegas Tour and Las Vegas Séance (a $66 value).
The three-hour tour commences nightly when the clock strikes 9:30 p.m. at the Royal Resort, where you'll board a bus to shuttle you to the now-haunted stomping grounds of famous former Las Vegans. Animated by the crackling commentary of Haunted Vegas's mortician-costumed tour guides, the long-forgotten tales of Bugsy Siegel, Liberace, and Elvis will be animated as you visit the spooky settings of their paranormal charades. The informative and educational ride includes a visit to the "Motel of Death," where countless celebrities met their unrehearsed ends, as well as a pit stop at a paranormally charged park, where guests pose for photo-ops with resident ghosts and vapors. And at the conclusion of the journey, undead tourees will be herded to the Las Vegas Séance, a 45-minute conference call with the dearly departed led by an experienced medium in a candlelit room.
Though growing up in any city is sure to result in a haunting collage of memories lurking around every corner and pool hall, professionally guided ghost tours will enlighten otherwise clueless city folk of the friendly ghost population all around them.
