At Spooked in Seattle Ghost Tours, paranormal experts belonging to the Advanced Ghost Hunters of Seattle-Tacoma shepherd groups through Pioneer Square’s haunted drinking establishments while recounting stories of scandal, murder, and haunting. Tales of Wyatt Earp in Seattle, untimely deaths, and stubborn spirits raise chills along spines more effectively than rubbing a bookbinding with an ice cube. The spooked flock ends their 90-minute adventure at Merchant’s Café and Saloon, where they recharge with two included glasses of frothy liquid courage.
Alternatively, Ross Allison, author of multiple books and founder of Advanced Ghost Hunters of Seattle-Tacoma, draws on 20 years of paranormal investigation as he teaches three-hour ghost-hunting classes. Allison, who has appeared on CNN, MTV, and the Discovery Channel, bases the four-session Ghostology 101 on his book of the same title. The courses take pupils to haunted sites for practical field experience and first-hand accounts of what it was like to wear a corset. Ghostology 101 precedes Ross’s advanced classes exploring subjects such as communicating with the other side and psychic science.
Please note that the tour may touch on mature topics and is intended for adults.
Spooked in Seattle Ghost Tours
Since 2004, Spooked in Seattle has been operating tours in the Seattle area, telling the real tales of the city's seedier history. Ghost hunters—including well-known paranormal investigator Ross, who has appeared on various TV shows to discuss ghost hunting—have examined each story and location through paranormal investigations. The ghost hunters take customers on walking tours through city streets and the darkened corridors of Seattle's oldest buildings, or invite them to have a drink at a few of the city's creepy watering holes.
