On Halloween night, SCI FI Channel will embark on a never-before-attempted, live, 6-hour ‘Ghost Hunters’ investigation! ‘Ghost Hunters Live’ (11 PM-5 AM), an unprecedented television event, will wrap up SCI FI’s 13 Days of Halloween marathon.
Jason, Grant and the ‘Ghost Hunters’ team revisit the notoriously haunted Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado for a live, 6-hour, Halloween-night investigation! Stephen King took up residence at the Stanley while writing his best-selling novel The Shining and the spooky goings on at the hotel reportedly served as the inspiration for his best-selling tome. Viewers will be sent on the ultimate Halloween adventure, joining the ‘Ghost Hunters’ in real-time as they investigate the infamously haunted hotel. Also joining the investigation is a special guest from ‘ECW’ (Extreme Championship Wrestling); ghost hunting novice CM Punk!
The ‘Ghost Hunters’ originally investigated the Stanley in February 2006 and were met with a flurry of unexplainable occurrences including a hotel room that was a veritable hotbed of paranormal activity. Continually intrigued by the locale, our ‘Ghost Hunters’ will return to the Stanley for the show’s first-ever live investigation, spending more time exploring some of the hotel’s most notorious hot spots and enlisting viewers to help expand their search for spirits.
In addition to the live broadcast, viewers can interact with the ‘Ghost Hunters’ via polling, SMS messaging and SCIFI.COM, logging suggestions for rooms to investigate and screening an online video feed. One unprecedented interactive addition to the live telecast is the SCI FI.COM "panic button" which will enable viewers to email the control room and alert the ‘Ghost Hunters’ to any paranormal occurrences observed on the online feed.
