  • TRIVIA (3)

    • During the first run of this episode they asked the audience to vote for their favorite answer to a question between commercial breaks. The question was, "What type of paranormal activity best proves a place is haunted?"
      A. EVP's - 23%
      B. Apparitions - 52%
      C. Moving Objects - 25%

      "Apparitions" was the top answer voted by the audience at 52%.

    • The first investigation of the Stanley took place on February 21-23, 2006. The second was later that year, October 31- November 1, 2006.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Jason: Do you usually get any feelings when you head into anywhere, Punk?
      CM Punk: Um yeah, like when you walk into a club and you get that feeling that, you know, there's gonna be a fight so you should probably leave right away.

    • Dave: Was it really that windy?
      Brian: Oh yeah, dude, you kidding me?
      Steve: It was blowing Brian's skirt up.

    • Grant: More often than not when you reinvestigate a place, there's no activity the second time. The Stanley's 2 for 2 and it just deserves a place in our heart. I think collectively as TAPS, it feels a little bit like home.

  • NOTES (2)

    • When TAPS first visited The Stanley Hotel, the team was told a story about a young woman who stayed in room 412 who suddenly began acting strangely, claiming that something was attempting to possess her, and was violent with those who attempted to aid her, despite having no alcohol or drugs in her system. In this episode, Donna adds another interesting detail to the story- the supposed "possession" occurred exactly one year ago on Halloween night of 2005, and the woman had left the Hotel's Halloween party a half an hour before it took place. A parapsychologist would undoubtedly note that the power of suggestion of a supposed haunted location coupled with a party dedicated to celebrating the supernatural would be very strong, and if a person was highly suggestible, they might feel something that they attributed to a paranormal source, and hysteria could cause the violent, irrational behavior the woman exhibited.

    • The Stanley Hotel has been the subject of a number of other TV show ghost investigations. It's been investigated by TAPS on their show Ghost Hunters a number of times, including the second season episode "Shining Hotel", the third season Live episode "Live From The Stanley", with this episode being the follow-up to the Live. It was also used by the TAPS spin-off show Ghost Hunters Academy for the final episode of the second of cadets "Finals At The Stanley". And it's been the subject of an investigation performed by the British paranormal TV show Most Haunted in its eleventh season episode "The Stanley Hotel". Later, it was investigated by the Ghost Adventures Crew for their fourth season episode "Stanley Hotel".
