Ghost Hunters Live revisited the notoriously haunted Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado for a real-time Halloween-night investigation. As the legend goes, 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. Also joining the investigation was special guest from ECW (Extreme Championship Wrestling) – ghost hunting novice CM Punk!
The startling evidence gathered from Ghost Hunters Live will be presented in a brand-new episode airing on Wednesday, November 8 at 9pm, "Best of the Stanley Hotel."
