Due to higher-than-anticipated demand, we’ve added new dates for Summer 2024! Black Creek Pioneer Village is without question one of the most active sites we tour. Over the years, our inquisitive ghost tour guests have craved a deeper, more immersive encounter with the eerie side of this extraordinary location. Join us for a spine-chilling paranormal adventure where intimate groups of 12 or fewer will have exclusive access to investigate haunted heritage buildings – including the notorious Half Way House – in the dark! Feel the chill of the night and listen to the whispers of the past as we employ ancient and modern techniques to attempt to establish contact with the lingering spirits that call the Village home. Will they respond? Leave skepticism at the door and step into the world of the unexplained. ‘Alone in the Dark’ is as real as it gets, where even the spirits themselves can’t predict the outcome. Nothing is hidden or staged. This unforgettably eerie evening will delight ghost story enthusiasts, fearless paranormal investigators, history aficionados, urban explorers, and anyone with a curiosity about the unknown.
