Plot Synopsis

Paranormal investigators Zak Bagans and Aaron Goodwin document supernatural activity at haunted locations, both domestic and international. During their investigations -- which included Nick Groff for the first 10 seasons -- the crew learns about the area, interviews locals about hauntings, and gets up close and personal with the spirits reportedly inhabiting these locations. Armed with night vision cameras, digital recording equipment and unique provoking techniques, the crew readies themselves for an overnight investigation. While being locked down from dusk til dawn, the Ghost Adventures crew investigates each location's paranormal activity. At the end of each episode, an independent, third-party team of paranormal specialists conducts a scientific analysis to decipher and analyze the evidence caught on camera. In Season 7 (Fall 2012), the crew travels to new locations including Sugar Lands, TX to investigate the Central Unit Prison and Point Sur, CA's historic Point Sur Lighthouse. The group also explores the 150-year-old Black Moon Manor mansion in Greenfield, IN, the haunted happenings at Sauk Centre, MN's Palmer House Hotel, and the paranormal activity at the Excalibur Nightclub. The 13-episode eighth season of GHOST ADVENTURES premieres on Friday, August 16, 2013 at 9pm ET/PT on Travel Channel, as Zak, Nick and Aaron explore unexplained paranormal activity all over the world in their never-ending quest to understand ghostly phenomena. Plus, Season 8 features the show's 100th episode (Friday, October 4) and a one-hour retrospective special, "Ghost Adventures: Up Close & Personal," on Friday, September 27 at 9pm ET/PT, during which the team looks back on 100 of their most unforgettable moments. In addition, this season also features a special two-hour Halloween episode that takes viewers to Transylvania, where the team will explore the truth behind the legend of Count Dracula, as they investigate the most terrifying haunted castles in this intriguing and historical Romanian province. Other lockdown locations include the 150-year-old Black Swan Inn in San Antonio, TX; the Tuolumne General Hospital in the old mining town of Sonora, CA; the notoriously violent Missouri State Penitentiary in Jefferson City, MO; the Yost Theater and Ritz Hotel in Santa Ana, CA; a haunted century-old Victorian Mansion just outside of Boston, and more. Moving to a new night of the week, GHOST ADVENTURES returned for its ninth season on Saturday, February 15, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT on Travel Channel. In the Season 9 premiere, Zak, Nick and Aaron explored the Oman House -- a Los Angeles home ridden with paranormal activity believed to be directly related to the infamous Sharon Tate murders, which took place just 200 feet from the property by Charles Manson and his cult of followers in 1969.

"From the massive Queen Mary ship in California to Ireland's Leap Castle and Mexico's Island of the Dolls, each location is embedded with layers of paranormal activity to explore. As Nick, Aaron and I dig deeper to capture compelling evidence, we're instituting a variety of new investigation tactics, experiments and equipment."

The manor once housed the incurably insane and has documented over 100 deaths within its walls. A menacing dark entity known as "The Joker" terrorizes those who enter, inflicting physical harm. Inexplicable technical issues plague the team from the start. As they make their way to the basement -- the center of the Joker's attacks -- Bagans and Goodwin experience intense uncomfortable feelings, and Bagans decides to leave before the dangerous energy completely overwhelms him.

Zak Bagans and the GHOST ADVENTURES team -- Aaron Goodwin, Jay Wasley and Billy Tolley -- investigate iconic locations that are hotbeds of creepy and unnerving hauntings in all-new October specials that will air during Travel Channel's "Ghostober" event, which features 31 days of spine-chilling premieres. The four-part miniseries, "Ghost Adventures: Serial Killer Spirits," tackles the question: does evil linger? Exploring haunted locations associated with infamous serial killers, the team seeks to document whether malicious energy has been left behind by these sadistic killers and their evil acts. "I've investigated a lot of places, but these locations are absolutely terrifying on a whole other level," said Bagans. "To walk in the same footsteps as these serial killers, where some of the most notorious acts of evil were committed -- it severely affects you. The residual energy alone is palpable. And the real-life house that inspired the Conjuring movies -- I'm speechless! That has a been a dream of mine to investigate for years and I can't believe it's finally happening. It's beyond legendary. I can't wait for viewers to experience this terrifying adventure with us."

A two-hour Halloween special, "Ghost Adventures: Halloween 2019" (wt), takes the team to Rhode Island for an unforgettable lockdown inside the real-life home that inspired the iconic horror film, The Conjuring.
