During the two-hour grand tour or overnight ghost hunt, visitors venture into The Haunted Cottage to explore its haunted corridors and use ghost-hunting equipment to search for paranormal activity. The spooky magic show, Paranormalis, combines traditional illusions with ghost-hunting techniques, blurring the line between performance and paranormal. After the show, the audience is free to tour the cottage and visit the Curiosities Museum.
The Haunted Cottage
Though spectral forms and shadowy figures still reside in The Haunted Cottage, its greatest legacy is as the occasional vacation home of assassin John Wilkes Booth. Also known as the Booth House, The Haunted Cottage is home to paranormal researcher Vince Wilson, who helms the haunted abode's ghost tours and maintains the paranormal library and history museum, where guests can spy a vampire skeleton among other supernatural exhibits. All this knowledge pours from Vince's mouth during tours and investigations, which pair breakdowns of the house's 200-year history with actual equipment designed to catch ghosts, from cameras and digital recorders to EMF meters.
The Haunted Cottage also strives to school spirit-seekers with paranormal-research training that cycles through parapsychology topics such as extrasensory perception, hypnosis, and psychic healing.

“It was fine. It was different than what I had expected but was still worthwhile and my party enjoyed... plus, we made new friends with another group!
