I have now ventured down the vaults on several occasions. It truly is a fascinating place, as you find yourselves standing in awe, trying to imagine what went on when they were active all those years ago.
They are not the most comfortable areas to conduct an investigation in, and it can become very tiring as it saps your energy toward the end of the research night.

The “Ghost Adventures” crew — Zak Bagans, Nick Groff and Aaron Goodwin — is back to investigate the scariest, most notorious, haunted places in the world.

The evening of Monday 16th May marked the start of Ghost fest for our Team, the original Investigation Organisation of Mary Kings Ghost Fest.
The team arrived at the Blair Street Vaults at approximately 18.00, giving plenty of time to set up equipment and prepare for the evening ahead. The mood of the team was one of nervousness and apprehension. This was the first investigation that SP had conducted with members of the public present and it was very much preying on the team members minds. Continue reading →
