The Houston Ghost Tour introduces patrons of the preternatural to the most translucent residents of the city's streets, parks, and pubs during evening and afternoon walking tours led by paranormal-realm experts. Families filling fright quotas can discover the city's supernatural history as their guides unveil stories of crime, accidents, and sock-puppet disappearances during all-ages tours. On the Houston ghost tour (Friday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 12 p.m.), tour-takers explore the ectoplasmic excitement of Hermann Park and the haunted Rice University while the mysterious voices of the Miller Outdoor Theater serenade tour members with ghostly carols and Sammy Hagar covers.
While slinking through Spring's Old Town (Thursday and Saturday at 8 p.m.), guests visit sites of gambling, battles, and brothels before witnessing a haunted train station and the bullet holes left behind by Bonnie and Clyde's infamous bank withdrawal. Guests of the Tomball ghost tour (Friday at 8 p.m.) investigate the sites of folkloric train wrecks and Civil War battles before perusing an eerie train depot and snapping their fingers to the soulful sounds of bluesmen long gone at the House of Blues.
Houston Ghost Tour
Mysterious fires. An old bank vault that can’t be destroyed. A deceased opera singer who refuses to draw the curtain on the living world. These are the stories that Houston Ghost Tour’s seasoned phantom chasers impart to mortals as they guide them to local nooks and crannies where spectral squatters may dwell. Guests on the Houston tour tiptoe through the ghostly grounds of Rice University and explore Hermann Park, where the songs from Miller Outdoor Theatre and animalistic shrieks from the Houston Zoo converge to form an eerie soundtrack for sleuthing. Travelers drink in local history during the Old Town Spring adventure, which teems with tales of Civil War battles, high-stakes gambling bets, and brothels filled with the ghosts of bats forever tangled up in lingerie. Along the way, guests can also glimpse the bullet holes of a bank robbed by Bonnie and Clyde. The Tomball tour explores a paranormal train depot and a cemetery that, like an igloo made of dry ice, is said to have vanished into thin air.
