Titanic The Experience is now offering eerie ghost tours based on personal anecdotes of staff and a recent ghost investigation hosted by the venue.
For the past five years, staff members at Titanic The Experience have encountered some strange and unanswerable events within the Exhibition. To put the debate to rest and finally find answers to these unusual events, Titanic The Experience hosted a paranormal investigation organization, which claimed to have found conclusive evidence of paranormal activity generated by those passengers and crew who sailed on the legendary ship the evening she met her fate.
“While some swear it is the spirits of the passengers and crew members of Titanic reaching out from ‘the other side’ others speculate it is their minds playing tricks on them,” said Kerri Drake, general manager of Titanic The Experience.
The ghost tours are designed for all ages and led by Titanic The Experience actors who usually portray notable Titanic passengers during the regular daily tours. Guests will also have an opportunity to explore the Exhibition and its authentic artifacts including a watch chain with pearls; telegraph to the main engine room; cooking pot; deck lamp; wine bottle; marble slab with cold water faucet and waste valve, and cut crystal carafe with the flag of White Star Line, the company that owned the iconic Ship.
“After conducting a ghost investigation which uncovered extensive paranormal activity, we decided we needed to share the amazing results with our visitors,” said Katherine Seymour, vice president of public relations for Premier Exhibitions. “Ghost tours will allow our guests the opportunity to get a little closer to the passengers and crew who met their fate that tragic evening.”
On Oct. 31, Titanic The Experience will be offering ghost tours every hour, all day long. Guests will be able to purchase ghost tour tickets at regular ticket prices, $21.95 if they come in costume. On Halloween night, the Exhibition will host a ghostly dinner show beginning at 7 p.m.
Titanic The Experience is located at 7324 International Drive and open seven days a week. Ghost Tours are conducted every Thursday evening at 7 p.m. Guests are advised to arrive 30 minutes prior to the tour. Tickets can be purchased at www.TitanicTheExperience.com, or at the on-site box office.
