----Our ghost hunts at the infamous Texas Halloween History Museum and Scream Hollow are not for the faint of heart.

We have two of the most unique and haunted places in Central Texas and reports of paranormal occurrences are frequent.

Activity ranges from voices and shadow people to feeling watched, followed, or any combination of emotions. There are items from funeral homes, the home of a serial killer, death row, other haunted places, an electric chair, the doll room, and some that have been associated with satanism and the occult. Did we mention we have a cemetery on property? The activity inside the museum building and in the forest are intense!

What can I expect?

A fun and exciting night of paranormal investigating, just as seen in most the popular shows on TV. You will have use of our paranormal equipment at the beginning of the night, while you are being shown techniques and how to use it, from our group of experienced paranormal investigators. Feel free to bring along any of your own equipment. We will have breaks periodically throughout the night. A light jacket could be considered depending on the time of year, as some areas in the locations can get rather cold.

We do not play tricks and are not out to convince anyone of the "afterlife". Please know that you will be among others who may or may not think the same as you but are all out to seek confirmation of "the other side". We never make a guarantee that the spirit world will make itself known on our investigations, but we can guarantee that we will have fun trying!
