Ghost Adventures Season 10 Details



CHEVY CHASE, MD (August 19, 2014) – Get ready to lockdown your October. Zak Bagans, Nick Groff and Aaron Goodwin – the seasoned experts who have become synonymous with paranormal investigations – return for a brand-new season of Travel Channel’s “Ghost Adventures” on Saturday, October 4 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. This season launches with lockdown investigations in five iconic locations airing throughout the month of October, including a two-hour Halloween special which investigates the ancient Celtic demons that make up the country’s haunted Halloween history. Season ten is comprised of thirteen hour-long episodes and one two-hour special.

“We’re going big this season,” said Zak Bagans, lead investigator. “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.”

In the season premiere, the investigative trio climb aboard the legendary ocean liner Queen Mary, now permanently docked in Long Beach, Calif. and considered to be one of the most haunted places in the world. Not long after the ship’s maiden voyage in 1936, it was put into military service. Tragedy surrounded the ship – nicknamed the “Gray Ghost” – until 1967 when it dropped anchor for good and became a hotel, still in operation today. Weighing more than 81,000 tons and over three football fields in length, the Queen Mary’s haunted history is as large and looming as the ship itself. With reports of multiple apparitions and voices – including that of a former crewman and little girl – the trio prepares for a powerful investigation. They first conduct a séance to channel the spirit of world renowned psychic and paranormal pioneer Peter James, who used the ship as basecamp for his studies and captured EVPs (electronic voice phenomena) of the little girl named “Jackie.”  Inviting EVP specialist Debbie Constantino on the lockdown, the team splits up to investigate the massive ship and are immediately confronted with disembodied voices, intelligent responses, light anomalies and a figure that will give chills to even the greatest of skeptics.

Additional locations featured this season include:

  • Lemp Mansion (St. Louis, Mo.) – Saturday, October 11 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT

Lemp Mansion has been voted one of the top ten most haunted locations in America.  This house holds the ghosts of a dynastic family whose members went from rags to riches to madness and horrible death.

  • Zozo Demon (Oklahoma City, Okla.) – Saturday, October 18 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT

Darren Evens claims a terrifying demon named “Zozo” entered his life through a Ouija board at his Hudson Avenue home in Oklahoma City. Seemingly a global phenomenon, “Zozo” has made Evens life so unbearable that he fled the home and hasn’t been back since.

  • Island of the Dolls (Xochimico, Mexico)– Saturday, October 25 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT

Near the dark and creepy canals of Xochimico, Mexico sits what might be the world’s strangest and scariest tourist attraction: the Island of the Dolls (Isla de las Munecas), also home to a sinister – and haunted – mystery.

  • Ireland: Celtic Demons – Leap Castle, Hell Fire Club, Loftus Hall (Ireland) –

Friday, October 31 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT (Two-Hour Halloween Special)

The roots of Halloween date back to 500 B.C. in the world’s Celtic region. Rich with haunted history, Ireland’s Leap Castle, Hell Fire Club and Loftus Hall are still believed to be infested by vengeful ghosts, banshees and other satanic elements.

SpookyShogun TV: Ghost Adventures Preview


With the Halloween season moving quickly upon us, we got a special look at the first season five episode of the Travel Channel’s Ghost Adventures. The formula behind Ghost Adventures has been seen before in various other “ghost hunt” programming. Basically, a team of ghost hunters goes into various “haunted” locations and stays the night, recording video as well as numerous other forms of instrumentation in an attempt to catch any paranormal activity for viewers. What sets Ghost Adventures apart is its ghost hunting crew. Headed by the boisterous, melodramatic, and often muscle-shirted Zak Bagans, the three-man crew has a very likeable quality to them and they are entertaining as hell to watch in their hunt.

In the first episode of season five, the crew heads to Ashmore, Illinois to stay the night in the purportedly-haunted Ashmore Estates. They interview witnesses of paranormal occurrences at the property as well as its “unique” proprietor. Without giving too much away, I can say that this first episode of the new season is chock full of nifty ghost-hunting equipment, such as the “Ghost Box”, which uses the same principle as EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena) but, instead of having to rewind and playback a tape, this device just outputs any EVP to a speaker for all to hear – a very cool idea and it yields some goosebump-inducing findings. Additionally, this episode has some very awesome bits of dialog from the team leader, Bagans, like:

“Dealing with demons again, Nick… We’re going to be dealing with demons again…”


“Alright guys, let’s go to war!”

Are the Ashmore Estates haunted? You will just have to wait and find out – the episode is worth your time and is a nice kick-off to the Halloween season.

Ghost Adventures returns to the Travel Channel on September 23rd. Check your local listings for showtimes.
