Fear is the secret to happy marriages, the key to getting goose bumps, and the final ingredient in most madmen's serums. Master an encounter with this multipurpose emotion with today's Groupon: for $12, you get one ticket (a $25 value) to the Kansas City Ghosts and Gangsters Tour.
Kansas City's Ghosts and Gangsters Tour takes thrill-seekers by coach for an authentically spooky look at KC's paranormal and Mafia life. Strap on a proton pack and let an engaging guide tell of the history and hauntstory of landmarks such as the Hotel Savoy, the oldest continuously operating hotel west of the Mississippi, and St. Mary's Church, which the ghost of Father Henry David Jardine is said to haunt to prove his death wasn't a suicide and his car wasn't a bicycle. In addition to spectral sights, you'll see several worldly Mafioso spots, such as the location of several late-1970s bombings and bullet holes from a 1933 massacre of four police officers and a fugitive at the Union Station railroad depot. Tours, which start at 1300 W. 12th Street, are held by reservation on Friday nights and Saturday nights from 6 p.m.–9 p.m. and 9 p.m.–12 a.m.
The tour's meeting spot is the Edge of Hell and it does not include ticket to the haunted house.
Although the newly opened Kansas City Ghosts and Gangsters Tour has few reviews, the Pitch lists it as an event.
