Targoviste CastleTonight is the night! It’s time for the Ghost Adventures 2-hour Halloween special, when the guys head to Transylvania to track down the real historical figure behind Dracula. Watch at 9|8c as they lockdown in Vlad the Impaler’s castle, the castle where he was imprisoned, and a supernatural forest that is known for being home to glowing orbs of light.

This notorious island right off the coast of San Francisco was once thought to be cursed by Native Americans, who dubbed it “Evil Island.” Home to the oldest operating lighthouse on the West Coast, military fortifications and a rather large seabird colony, Alcatraz Island is most famous for the prison that held prisoners for 30 years and was thought to be inescapable. The island’s bloody and violent history came to a peak in 1946 when a failed escape attempt by 6 prisoners turned into the Battle of Alcatraz, which resulted in the gruesome deaths of 2 guards and 3 inmates.

Tonight, at 9|8c, the Ghost Adventures crew visits Alcatraz Island to see if those inmates and guards who spent their last hours inside the prison walls still linger among the cell blocks. While you watch, don’t forget to hangout with other GA fans in the Fan Lair and share your thoughts on the lockdown!

Want to take your own tour of Alcatraz Island? Plan a trip to San Francisco with the help of our travel guide, but before you go, see how the guys prepared for The Rock.

“To watch those 3 not just go a-hunting in pitch-blackness, but to do it for our entertainment, still amazes me. Since that time, I have been a hardcore fan of the show; they are as funny and quick-witted as they are fearless and stoic.”
-Dean Haglund, Actor, Ghost Adventures Live Host

For their 100th investigation, tonight at 9|8c, the Ghost Adventures crew visit St. Louis to lock down in the house where the event that inspired the movie, The Exorcist, happened in 1949, when a little boy was possessed by the devil.

On a beautiful, unassuming street in a quiet neighborhood in St. Louis, sits a brick house with a dark history, or as a fellow paranormal investigator called it, The House Where Satan Slept. The guys put themselves at risk and attempt to summon the demons that may still be lurking in this family home – what will they find?

Plan your own trip to St. Louis with the help of our travel guide – we even found a haunted walking tour of the city that includes the story of the famous exorcism, as well as a museum with artifacts from the movie.

And don’t miss what some famous friends of the GAC said about the guys to congratulate them on making it to such a huge milestone.

This Orange County historic landmark was built in 1912 and has a rich history, full of stories about famous vaudeville entertainers. But it has also had its fair share of scandal, once serving as a jail for the drunks of Orange County. Not to mention, the songwriter Ernest Ball, famous for the song “When Irish Eyes are Smiling,” died backstage in the theatre’s dressing room.

Right outside of Yosemite National Park, sits the now empty Tuolumne General Hospital in Sonora, CA. Sonora was a Gold Rush boomtown in the 1800s, and due to the often violent practices of desperate gold miners, Tuolumne Hospital was opened in 1849. But the hospital finally closed just a few years ago, and now sits abandoned save for the spirits of a few miners who still may be roaming the halls.  Tonight on an all-new episode of Ghost Adventures at 9|8c, the guys visit this hospital to determine who is lingering. And in an extended lockdown that yields some terrifying evidence, the guys leave the hospital feeling more than a little shaken up.

Pay your own visit to Sonora, CA, and learn about its rich gold mining history, with tips in our travel guide. And don’t miss tonight’s epic episode!
