In a recent post I mentioned that I had been developing an appreciation for the Ghost Adventures series. Well I’ve been catching up on various episodes from random seasons that my DVR catches and records. Today I watched their investigation of the Bird Cage Theatre in Tombstone, Arizona from 2009. When I saw the description I was really excited because one of my all-time favorite Ghost Hunters episodes from two years earlier is from Bird Cage Theatre. This GH episode goes way back to season 3. Brian Harnois was still a big part of the show, and Tango was still an “Investigator in Training”. I’ve not been to Tombstone, but I’d love to if I ever get the chance! The area, which includes the famous O.K. Corral, is such a historical gem and is supposed to be a hotbed for paranormal activity.
In the Ghost Hunters episode, the most exciting evidence for me was when the TAPS team captured perfectly clear and obviously dated music somehow being played in the background. I remember getting chills the first time I heard it. They also captured the grainy DVR video of an electrical cord being lifted off a bell hanging on the wall and falling to the floor. I found it interesting that both TAPS and the Ghost Adventures crew had the kind of dramatic personal experiences involving full blown apparitions that you just don’t see often. They weren’t your typical “what the frig” personal experiences, they seemed to be incredibly authentic and real. I mean, in both situations they had to stop to catch their breath. Of course, who knows? Both teams also captured audio of the sound of shuffling cards. This makes sense since the Bird Cage was a popular site for gambling. Ghost Adventures recorded some amazing EVP as well as clearly audible disembodied voices (these voices are similar to EVP but are heard in real time without the aid of recording devices).
Embedded in this post will be the first of the three-part Ghost Hunters episode and the entire Ghost Adventures episode. Like most videos of this nature, I’m sure they’ll disappear or be taken down eventually, so if you can’t get to them below, search YouTube or get the episodes somehow. Do any of my readers have a favorite location from paranormal TV? Have you been to Tombstone?
