Join The Old Idaho Penitentiary For 2021’s First Paranormal Investigation
Dust off those EMF meters and get those recording devices fired up local ghost hunters, it's time again to experience some paranormal activity at The Old Idaho State Penitentiary. Shows such as Ghost Adventures, The Lowe Files, Haunted Towns and Destination Fear have all done their investigations of one of Idaho's most haunted locations, now it's time to participate in own yourself.
"Attempt to make contact with prisoners and guards of the past" at The Old Idaho Penitentiary's first Paranormal Investigation of the year happening on Saturday, March 27th. Big River Paranormal will be leading the investigation. While participants are encouraged to bring their own ghost hunting equipment such as cameras, recording devices, EMF meters, etc., and flashlights, BRP will be equipped with their own unique equipment, as well as their expertise and knowledge.
Participants should arrive at the penitentiary no later than 9:00pm in weather appropriate clothing. The doors will officially open at 9:15pm. Tickets are priced at $35 each and individuals must be at least 18 years old to participate in the investigation. It is also noted that participants should print a copy of their purchase confirmation page to serve as proof of purchase if necessary.
This is one of the Historical Society's most popular programs so be sure to reserve a spot soon. Tickets have been on sale since February so there's a chance there could only be a limited amount left. According to the Historical Society, ticket sales from events such as these investigations benefit other Old Idaho Penitentiary education programs and operations.
