Uncover the true origins behind Atlantic City’s tragic history and terrifying hauntings
This boardwalk town’s seedy history goes way back to a city built and born on the East Coast atop the ruins of a summer home of an indigenous tribe. These original inhabitants called the land “Absegami”, or “Little Water”, and so the land was later named Absecon Island by colonial settlers. Centuries of antiquity followed, inevitably drawing the evil and sinister from the misfortune of its victims and the misdeeds of its villains.
Tragic events like the infamous shipwreck Powhatan where hundreds of lives were lost in a winter snowstorm, pale in comparison to the horrific crimes and bloodshed brought about by gangster sharks like Capone. This gambling mecca of the Atlantic boasts a haunted history so dark that no number of neon lights can fully conceal the ghosts spawned in its wake who continue to haunt its piers and boardwalk.
Follow along on this spine-tingling ghost tour and hear authentic accounts of hauntings stemming from the pain and suffering that lay just beneath the surface of the casino boomtown. Learn the origins of the Jersey Devil and its multiple sightings over the course of a century and hear true accounts of the rumored “Lady in White” who appears randomly in different halls and floors of the Flanders Hotel. These hauntings and more contribute to hundreds of reports of the unexplainable and downright frightening encounters experienced by locals and visitors alike.
Adventure deep into the night and see the most haunted locations in Jersey and the East Coast, visiting cursed casinos like Caesars, the crown jewel of Atlantic City’s treasure chest of casinos. Caesars ranks as the town’s second-oldest, and its storied history includes various smash-and-grab style robberies complete with Hollywood-style masks. Experience Caesars’ haunted grounds and the chilling property of The Wild West Casino, where guests still relive the tragic horror of bodies washed ashore and witness the ghosts whose corpses were robbed just hours after their deaths.
Marvel at haunted hotels such as Bally’s or Resorts, which was used as a WWII base of operations aptly named “Camp Boardwalk” only to be used as a war-time hospital whose trauma echoes into the present with visitors claiming to see disembodied soldiers still preparing for war. Even these stories will be overshadowed by the never-ending drama and even deaths at the former Trump Taj Mahal, now the Hard Rock Casino and Hotel. From a gun-downed supervisor to supposed money-laundering for the mob to a recent suicide, the unexplained sightings and unbelievable hauntings continue to torment those who decide to spend the night.
Despite being a who’s who of notable inventors and leaders such as Thomas Edison and Martin Luther King Jr., the fairy tale dream turned unbelievable tragedies of the city were evident in the boarded-up buildings and abandoned piers becoming fixtures many times throughout its roller-coaster history. Casino resorts and luxury hotels boasted celebrity guests like Frank Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe, and even Elvis. The city’s temporary good fortune constantly turned bad to worse, rocked by scandals of suicide, bankruptcy, foreclosure, and even murder.
These salacious tales always turn to whispers as the ghosts of those whose luck ran dry begin to appear when the sun goes down, and the bets go up each night in Atlantic City. See America’s playground from a petrifying new perspective while hearing tales of its debaucheries and past and true accounts of its haunting and terrifying present.

The Warner Palace Theatre opened its doors at the end of the roaring 20s, and while the history of the Warner Palace Theatre is obvious from the boardwalk, the facade isn’t the only ghost from the theatre’s past. Elvis supposedly visits the theatre, along with other performers who decide to return for one last otherworldly performance!
Caesars Atlantic City has been a crown jewel of the city since its grand opening. As for the ghostlier side of the casino, visitors report seeing the apparitions from the wrecked ship Powhatan, as well as a floating man who keeps watch over the hotel and somehow has access to every room!
Before it was Bally’s, the site was the location of two hotels; the Marlborough-Blenheim and Dennis Hotel. The Dennis Hotel’s pre-Civil War history can explain why guests have seen a Civil War soldier wandering the grounds…and he’s not the only infamous or undead visitor wanting to test his luck at America’s Playground.
