Chaos offers tours of the paranormal

Chaos Haunted and Historical Tours is offering a glimpse into the paranormal activity of Northwest Indiana. Believe it or not, this area is full of locations believed to be haunted. Visiting various locations of both terror and tragedy, real ghost hunters will lead private and public tours through these spooky spots around the area.

Led by Mike McDowell, the founder, president and CEO of Indiana Ghost Trackers, the tours will visit what are believe to be real haunted sites including crime scenes perpetrated by gangsters, restless hitch hikers, mysteries, murders, local myths and urban legends. The tours of these sites will give visitors an opportunity to see for themselves if the location is truly haunted or just tall tales of myth and folklore.

McDowell has many years of experience investigating haunted locations around America. Locally he has investigated Valparaiso’s city hall (2001) and the Porter County courthouse (2004), among others. He’s been leading haunted tours in the area for nine years. The real research of ghost hunters combined with entertaining storytelling will make for an exciting and enjoyable evening for everyone.

Tours typically consist of between eight and 12 stops at haunted locations, with photo opportunities and a chance to get out and walk at some places as well. Tours will feature ghost stories from the area, ghost photos, electronic voice phenomina (EVP) demonstrations and use of real ghost hunting equipment and much more.

Tour packages available include:
