CREEPY. KOOKY. FUN.
As co-chair to the HORROR WRITERS ASSOCIATION: Las Vegas Chapter I’ve seen my share of Haunted Houses and supernatural attractions but there’s nothing quite like the rush you get from this place.
Zak Bagans developed a profound interest in the paranormal when he was just 10 years old, scouring nearby garage sales with his mom in search of odd and spooky collectibles. His fascination with the unusual evolved into a life-long pursuit for answers about the afterlife, not merely through the study of earth-bound energy, but also through years of science-based research using a multitude of specially engineered equipment to measure fluctuations in the environment… more specifically, to communicate with the dead. Now a pioneer in the paranormal field, Bagans is giving everyone a chance to experience the spine-chilling vibe of the spirit world at the new Zak Bagans’ The Haunted Museum located in downtown Las Vegas.
I recently revisited for the third time, I brought a virgin: my lady friend was new to it all. Just to give you an idea of the location, among the hundreds of terrifying possessions, museum-goers can even peek inside the VW death van in which Dr. Jack Kevorkian ended the suffering of terminally ill patients as well as get a close-up look at the “Propofol chair” from Michael Jackson’s death room. Perhaps most unsettling is the original staircase from the Indiana “Demon House,” notorious for its powerful paranormal activity before being demolished in 2014. The wooden banister and creaky steps from the house now stand in a dimly-lit corner, resting on a blanket of dirt from the location. Following its installation, a group of construction workers walked off the job and refused to come back. The place brings out a varying degree of emotions and my friend really enjoyed it.
You can learn all about the haunted collection filmed in its entirety at the museum in Ghost Adventures – “Artifacts” on Travel Channel.
Zak Bagans’ The Haunted Museum is an excellent collection of cursed objects, oddities and all things macabre. Anyone interested in the paranormal or just looking for a completely different experience should pay it a visit.
