Aurora, Elgin and Naperville, Illinois (I-Newswire) September 28, 2012 - Unique Tours Offer Ghost Hunting Experience Like on TV
The haunting evenings of the Halloween season approach and one great way to enjoy being scared is to go on a ghost hunting ghost tour. October and November are peak season for the “pay me to scare you” industry. Diane Ladley’s acclaimed Haunted Hometowns Corporation has three unique tours to verified haunted sites within the historic cities of Aurora, Elgin and Naperville in Chicago’s far west suburbs - perfect for those who love to be scared. They guide their guests to sites known to be actively haunted and tell them the eerie stories of each spooky place. Enjoy the thrill of the sudden flash of lights as EMF meters beep urgently in all the tour guests hands signaling that a ghost may be standing right beside them- just like they do on the cable television shows!
Ladley, a nationally award-winning storyteller named "America's Ghost Storyteller" by her peers, was the first to research the true local hauntings and urban legends of her haunted hometowns of Naperville and Aurora. Her lifelong study culminated in authorship of "Haunted Aurora" (The History Press) and "Haunted Naperville" (Arcadia Publishing), on which her walking tours are based, which were approved for historical accuracy by local museum historians. She later expanded into Elgin with a ghost hunt bus tour of that city's most notoriously haunted cemeteries.
The Historic Ghost Tours of Naperville take guests on a leisurely walk past the grand Victorian mansions of Naperville's beautiful Historic District and the North Central College campus to meet its ghostly residents. They visit the site of Naperville’s most tragic accident where dozens of ghosts still linger 60 years later, and see the actual theater reputed to be haunted by eight ghosts. This is Naperville’s most popular, family-friendly tour for ages 8+, named by the Naperville Sun newspaper as the very best. It meets in front of Quigley’s Irish Pub at 43 E. Jefferson in downtown Naperville, Illinois—a haunted pub of course.
Diane Ladley's Historic Ghost Tours of Aurora is an unforgettable tour of the most historically haunted places in Illinois' second largest city, the long-time rival to Chicago. Most residents know that Aurora is named the "City of Lights", but few also know its other nickname; the "City of Cemeteries." Tours start at the largest and last surviving stone roundhouse in the nation, a 150-year-old steam engine manufacturing house, now the haunted Two Brothers Roundhouse, a dining and entertainment hotspot. Strolling along Aurora's beautiful Riverwalk and downtown island, guests will shudder to learn the authentic dark history of Depression-era phantoms, grisly murders, and the lost souls who were victims of the Suicide Skyscraper.
The Historic Ghost Tour of Elgin takes guests inside Elgin's most notoriously haunted cemeteries to see what it's like to experience an actual ghost hunting excursion. Armed with Ladley's EMF ghost meters, guests also bring cameras and recorders for a first hand experience in paranormal investigation, just like they do in many movies and cable television shows. Sites include the Elgin State Mental Hospital Pauper's Cemetery, "Hell's Back Gate," and Bluff City Cemetery, where, while shooting scenes from "Nightmare on Elm Street Part V", filming was interrupted by unexplained occurrences that even unnerved Freddy Krueger. The Historic Ghost Tour of Elgin is a five-hour bus ride for ages 16+ that dearly departs from the Elgin Public House, 22 E. Chicago St. in downtown Elgin, Illinois.
