Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by Zak Bagans, DESTINATION FEAR is a one-hour reality series that follows paranormal explorer and documentary filmmaker Dakota Laden, his sister Chelsea Laden, and best friend Tanner Wiseman, as they travel across America in an RV to spend the night in the most haunted abandoned locations in United States. Pursuing paranormal evidence, the team must first overcome fear itself. In each 60-minute episode, Dakota, Chelsea and Tanner travel to a different destination -- from asylums to prisons and more. The location remains a surprise to all but Dakota. Not knowing the haunted horrors that await them, it's a road trip driven by suspense and fueled by excitement. The team explores each haunted location together, zoning in on areas of reported paranormal activity and using scientific equipment to try and capture evidence. Then, the luck of the draw determines where each one will sleep overnight -- separated and alone. Armed with cameras and dread as their only companions, the team members will test the limits of their own fears in an effort to ultimately understand the paranormal. "My sister Chelsea and I grew up in a house with paranormal activity and it's gripped us, and my best friend Tanner, ever since," said Laden. "The three of us have always loved exploring haunted locations but began to realize how much our fears of the unknown affected us and held us back from getting answers. So we're hitting the road in a terrifying attempt to confront and overcome these fears head-on, night after night, as we sleep inside America's scariest abandoned buildings." Laden spent the last few years investigating the frightening unknown with the GHOST ADVENTURES crew.

Season 2 of DESTINATION FEAR premieres Wednesday, April 29, 2020 at 10pm ET/PT on Travel Channel. Brother and sister duo Dakota Laden and Chelsea Laden and best friend Tanner Wiseman, along with camera operator Alex Schroeder, confront their fears once again, as they pile into their RV and hit the road on a nail-biting cross-country journey to pursue paranormal evidence, spending the night inside America's most haunted abandoned buildings over six hour-long episodes in the second season. Lured by the unknown and with a greater understanding of fear, the crew explores a whole new set of abandoned locations with grim haunted histories and restless spirits lurking within. Only this time the destinations remain a surprise, not just to Chelsea and Tanner, but to Dakota as well, as they each take turns picking a haunted hot spot, challenging each other in unique ways. After exploring reports of paranormal activity, they separate to sleep alone in the dark ... and that's the moment when fear really takes over. In the season opener, "Nopeming Sanatorium," Dakota surprises Chelsea and Tanner by taking them back to where it all began: Nopeming Sanatorium in Duluth, Minnesota, a frightening location that loomed menacingly near their childhood homes. Dakota has been itching to investigate this 118-year-old building for years, but never had the courage to set foot inside. The site of 1,500 deaths, Nopeming's history runs rampant with murder, suicide and sinister spirits. Now, the team will finally confront their childhood fears as they explore and spend the night inside one of Minnesota's most paranormally active locations. What happens to the group during their overnight is an experience they will never forget, replete with poltergeist activity and a chilling encounter with the disturbed spirit of a former maintenance man. Later in the season, the team makes stops at the Yorktown Memorial Hospital in Yorktown, Texas; Old Montana State Prison in Deer Lodge, Montana; Hill View Manor in New Castle, Pennsylvania; Cambria County Jail in Ebensburg, Pennsylvania; and the Sheboygan County Insane Asylum in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, where they will be the first paranormal team to spend the night inside a building that has never before been investigated on television.
