  • QUOTES (5)

    • Kris: (trying to get a spirit to manifest) We're not going to be here much longer. We're tired, and we're cranky!
      Josh: Is that your bad cop routine?
      Kris: No. Well, it's gettin' there, yeah.

    • Josh: It's actually pretty terrifying, you know. It's one of those places that on the outside you don't really get a sense of what a maze it is. You know, it's this huge decaying labyrinth. A lot of these reports go back a really long time so it'll be interesting to see if we can replicate any of those experiences tonight.

    • Grant: If there's somebody here, we invite you to follow us wherever we go. We're not police officers or wardens or anything, we're just here trying to make contact with you. You can touch us, push us.
      Josh: Grant does not speak for me. Please don't touch me or push me!

    • Steve: Sure enough an animal came out and lunged at me and I got scared, I did. Nobody likes to see an animal lunge at their face. You know, ghosts not afraid of, all day long, you know. They may startle me or whatever, but spiders, bugs, wild animals that are gonna rip my face off or give me rabies or something, I'm gonna stay away from.

    • Josh: Tonight was great. For me, this was a really dynamic place and a lot of strange things happened to us, heard some really strange noises, and I had a really bizarre visual encounter. The whole evening left me with a lot of questions.
