If you were planning to gobble up a ghastly gob of new Ghost Hunters investigations with the expected return of season nine tonight, think again! There’s been a schedule change — a big one. The mid-season premiere of Ghost Hunters was supposed to haunt your television with a new episode tonight, but SyFy’s reality hit is taking a much longer hiatus than initially planned. When can you expect fresh investigations from the TAPS team to air? We’ve got the details lurking inside. Read on… if you dare!
The roller coaster might make you scream, but it’s the Sylvan Beach Park’s ghosts that will surely send chills down your spine. The TAPS team found themselves at the small amusement park in Sylvan Beach, New York surrounded by carnival-style rides searching for proof of the paranormal in the mid-season finale of Ghost Hunters. It was the perfect location for a spooky investigation. What evidence did they find? Scream inside this article to find out!
“I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country.” Those words were uttered by Revolutionary War patriot Nathan Hale who was executed by hanging when he was just 21 years old after he was captured by the British. Although the exact location of Hale’s body is unknown since he was buried in an unmarked grave, some believe his spirit has returned to his childhood home in Coventry, Connecticut. Who you gonna call? Ghost Hunters! The TAPS team traveled to the Nathan Hale Homestead, which was built in 1776 and has served as a museum since the 1940s. But his ghost isn’t the only one believed to be haunting the homestead — many think his family is still lurking there, too. What evidence did TAPS find? It’s actually pretty creepy stuff. Read the rest of this story… if you dare!
The TAPS team made a return to Louisville, Kentucky for their next stop to find proof of the paranormal on Ghost Hunters. This time around, the spirit seekers climbed aboard the Belle of Louisville — a boat that travels the Ohio River. Its lurid 100-year history is filled with freaky folklore that has spurned many beliefs it houses paranormal entities. Many claim the paranormal activity has grown so intense that the creepy Kentucky boat has spilled strange energy to the Life Saving Station #10, which sits right next door. What evidence were they able to capture during their time on the ship? All the details are inside.
After last season’s disastrously embarrassing episodes of Ghost Hunters, season 9 has really impressed me. The prime reason? I honestly believe it’s the locations. Each week I have found myself excited by the twisted tales of the lurid locations the TAPS team has set up shop to search for spirits. From a home connected to the murder mystery involving the Black Dahlia to last week’s eerie investigation at a decrepit asylum, TAPS has really found some awesome new spots — including tonight as they made their way to Cortland, New York to search for proof of the paranormal at the 1890 House. But the location was pretty much the only positive thing this episode had to offer as the TAPS team was back to their old, silly, exaggerative ways. Frustrating, yes.
The TAPS team found yet another super spooky location for tonight’s investigation on Ghost Hunters: The Peoria Asylum in Bartonville, Illinois. The massive former mental hospital, which opened in 1902, is said to be home to 16,000 deaths throughout its haunted history. As a result of ongoing renovations, many believe the spirits have been stirred up even more. In addition to the usual paranormal experiences like disembodied footsteps and strange sounds, the main focus has been on two specific spirits. The first is the so-called “Woman in White” with long, stringy hair and crazy eyes. One person even captured a photo of what he believes is the woman in white standing in a window staring back at him. Then there’s the ghost of Dr. Zeller, a doctor with a tight connection to the asylum. What evidence was the TAPS team able to capture this time? Did the woman in white or Dr. Zeller manifest themselves? Turn down the lights, and read deeper into this article to find out… if you’re brave enough!
After last week’s Hollywood-based investigations, the TAPS team stayed in Southern California for their latest search for spirits on Ghost Hunters. Mission San Juan Capistrano in San Juan Capistrano, California, is a location that many locals there believe is peppered with paranormal activity. Due to the size of the location, the TAPS team welcomed Josh Gates of Destination Truth as a guest investigator to help them cover extra ground. I always enjoy the episodes with Josh because I feel he adds a bit of credibility to a show based in skepticism. Were they able to find any evidence to prove that Mission San Juan Capistrano is actually haunted?
After going on hiatus for just a few weeks, Ghost Hunters has returned for the start of season nine with the TAPS team investigating a pair of Hollywood locations — one tied to the infamous Black Dahlia murder, the other inside Madame Tussauds popular wax museum. Before the search for spirits started, a new investigator joined the show. Who is it? If you watched Ghost Hunters Academy, it’s somebody you’re already familiar with. Why does her addition to the team bother me? Plus, on the heels of one of the most frustratingly ridiculous seasons of Ghost Hunters, was this new episode able to get season nine off on the right foot? What kind of evidence did they capture? I’ve got loads of dastardly details and all my opinions inside this article!
Tonight, the most frustrating season of Ghost Hunters came to an end as the TAPS team returned to investigate the Mark Twain house in Hartford, Connecticut. They had been there three years ago to search for proof of the paranormal and decided it was time to try again. Since some believed some of the paranormal activity at the house is connected to the Twain’s favorite holiday, they felt it would be the perfect time to return. Only trouble is, this episode was filmed long before Christmas decorations started popping up. I mean, look at all of the exterior shots they had of the house. The trees were all green and it appeared to be quite warm outdoors because nobody was wearing heavy enough clothing to prove otherwise. So using the holidays as a reason for increased paranormal activity would be totally bogus here. What evidence, if any, were they able to capture?
After last week’s insultingly ridiculous episode as we were forced to watch Jason pretend he’s still a working plumber with Roto-Rooter, the TAPS team made its way to the Rochester Public Library in Rochester, New York. As a disclaimer, I watched tonight’s episode of Ghost Hunters from my bed where I’ve spent all day coughing up a wicked storm and battling an apparent sinus infection. Not a good state for me to be watching this show, which I have been very critical of this season. In fact, I went into this episode expecting the same exaggerated garbage that Ghost Hunters has recently been dishing out — especially after the nonsense displayed last week. On the heels of yet another amazing Survivor: Philippines episode, was this show finally able to deliver something worthwhile? The highlight was actually something that was really disappointing as the investigator-in-training Ashley Troub was reassigned and essentially removed from the show.
