6 Reasons to book your St. Paul tour right now!
You Want to Immerse Yourself In The Terrifying History of St. Paul – You want to feed the ghost.
Connect with the lifeblood of this region and soak up some of the hidden histories of St. Paul. A place where every corner has a story, where every house has a skeleton to hide, where every person has a sin they would rather not shed light on. Our tour is thoroughly researched and based on facts — from history books, recorded accounts of hauntings, and documented ghost sightings.
A study at Princeton University may have proven the existence of ghosts? Researchers at Princeton University have been studying paranormal phenomena in a scientific context for almost 30 years, through a department called “PEAR”. It stands for “Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research”. PEAR is a scientific study of consciousness-related physical phenomena.
“Nearly three decades of intense experimentation leave little doubt that the anomalous physical phenomena appearing in the PEAR studies are valid, and are significantly correlated with such subjective variables as intention, meaning, resonance, and uncertainty… The primary importance of operator intention and emotional resonance with the task at hand, along with the operator-specific structure evident in the data, the absence of traditional learning patterns, and
the lack of explicit space and time dependence clearly predicate that no direct application or minor alteration of existing physical or psychological frameworks will suffice. ”
Human consciousness has an effect on our surroundings — what we think, fear, and believe in resonates and leaves traces. What does this have to do with a ghost tour? Ghost tours create feedback loops. The initial entity grows bolder and gains more energy with each tour group. The more you give it nutrition the more likely it will manifest. The ghost becomes more rambunctious, more willing to take a bite.
You Have A Dark Sense Of Humor
Some of us like our stories, like we like our steaks, bloody and rare. Some of us love a good Agatha Christie Mystery, enjoy curling up to a great Stephen King, and wait anxiously for the next installment of our favorite slasher franchise. Some of us need that extra jolt of darkness when it comes to our stories. We are part of a community that enjoys a good scare — that anxiously wants our veins to bulge as our hearts get flooded with adrenaline. We need that kick. We are a vast community and, to us, there’s nothing more scintillating than a good fright on a cold dark windy night.
You Need Something To Do That’s Different – a chilling date night
Life, sooner or later, becomes a bit dull. You feel like you’re just going through the motions, repeating the same routines over and over again. The same restaurant. The same bar. The same movie theater. The same re-hatched superhero movie. Step out of your comfort zone and book something different — something that’s strange, bizarre, ingenious, and exciting. Come with us on a once-in-lifetime trip and see the world from a different POV.
Did you know that bodies release different hormones when we are thrilled or scared? Most of them influence attraction. There’s a reason why scary movies and roller coasters get the blood pumping and give that date night a different stimulant. Join us on this less than romantic tour, yet highly titillating – it’s good for bonding.
You Are Looking For Inspiration
You need a tale that inspires — that makes you dream new dreams, and create your own stories. You need lore that helps you look at your hometown in a new light. Come with us as we travel through stories that are anything but tame. Stories that make you appreciate how weird and strange the world really is. Stories that allow you to believe in the impossible, and make you rethink what you know about reality. Stories that question the tangible, and the rules of physics — the rules you hold to be true.
You Already Took All Those Architectural Tours
You’ve slugged through all those tours — been up and down Summit Hill and bore witness to some of this nation’s most awe-inspiring buildings. You’ve heard the tales, and the angles, and the motifs. You’ve memorized the style. You’ve been told the difference between Romanesque, Gothic, and Baroque. But now, the lights have gone down. The city is painted in moonlight hues and the orange-yellow glare of streetlights, the shadows have grown deeper, the buildings more menacing. Now, you want context, you demand subtext. Come with us as we go beyond what you can see, and what the academics can tell you, and help you experience St. Paul like never before.
Our guides will take you on a wild theme park ride – they will interact, they will question, they will command the group. Are you sick and tired of all those terrible tour guides? The ones that seem to slide by with the bare minimum? Our experienced guides will take you on an experience you will never forget. They are the polar opposite of traditional. Get ready to scream, to laugh, maybe even shed a tear.
You’re a snowbird in for the winter
“No amount of fire or freshness can challenge what a man will store up in his ghostly heart.” —Nick Carraway.
Hemingway’s peculiar friend, the second half of that legendary couple – full of fire, madness, and passion – of Zelda and Scott, the man who wrote some of America’s best novels – full of quotable passages, and memorable scenes – F.Scott Fitzgerald once lived on St. Paul. If you’re a Gatsby fan, new or old – introduced to the writings of the genius by Baz Luhrmann’s and Leonardo DiCaprio – you simply can’t miss this thrilling ghost hunt. Why? F.Scott once called Summit Hill his home. The wordsmith and lyricist penned his first scribble at St. Paul and his house, with its eerie unkempt hanging gardens, soot covered brickwork, and chipped oval openings is full of mysteries and scandals. Get an inside look at the mind of F. Scott as we visit his Victorian retreat and dream of bootleggers, lavish decadent parties, and a green light at the end of a peer.
