Ghost hunting has definitely increased in popularity over the past few years. This is mainly due to the televising of ghost hunts by programmes such as Ghost Hunters International, The Bone Collector, Great British Ghosts, Most Haunted and many more.
Ghost hunting is a fascinating subject but one that leaves more questions than answers. Haunted Happenings run events all over the UK, including Southern Ireland and Wales along with our weekend tours in Europe. Such is the popularity of these ghost hunting events that we are expanding our locations all the time.
Haunted Happenings recognises what does and doesn’t make a good ghost hunt event and through trial and error we have come to the conclusion that ghost hunting, whilst an entertainment, is also very important as an experience. We tend to remember things that stand out for us and taking part in one of these events certainly does that.
We recognise that people have expectations when they attend a ghost hunting tour or event and these are normally based on their beliefs about the paranormal. There are those people that are particularly sensitive and seem to pick up on many different atmospheres and spirit activity within a location. There are others who are completely sceptical and have come out of a need to prove that they were right and that nothing will happen as spirits and ghosts do not exist. You then have the middle of the road customers who are open to experience and come with a sense of hope that something may happen to completely sway their belief of the afterlife.
Haunted Happenings incorporate all of these expectations into our ghost hunt events and we are fully trained to recognise the differing emotions that people are going through whilst on an event. These emotions are always heightened due to the alien and sometimes terrifying situation that people find themselves in. I mean how many times would you sit in a dark torture chamber where you cannot see the hand in front of your face and feel quite normal? We take this very aspect into account before we look at the paranormal evidence of anything.
It is important to us that our customers are taken care of and whilst we encourage them to be involved in all of our ghost hunting events we also know that we have a duty of care to them whilst placed in these situations, which may well be out of their own comfort zones. is an enjoyable but sometimes terrifying experience for all who take part.
