Ghost Adventures set to do live 4-hour Halloween special


Some of you lovely readers may have been too young to remember when the paranormal investigative shows were at their heyday around 2008. The top contenders were Ghost Hunters, Paranormal State, and Ghost Adventures.

While the first two have since faded off into the television afterlife, Ghost Adventures is still hanging in there. With the series still playing on the Travel Channel and Zak Bagans opening a haunted museum in Las Vegas, they are showing no signs of slowing down.

According to a press release from The Travel Channel, Ghost Adventures is doing a live 4-hour Halloween special and it’s looking to be intense. Zak Bagans is looking to do something unprecedented for the show: open a Dybbuk Box. For those of you who don’t know what a dybbuk box is, the box is part of Jewish folklore.

According to the Jewish Virtual Library, a dybbuk is “an evil spirit which enters into a living person, cleaves to his soul, causes mental illness, talks through his mouth, and represents a separate and alien personality.” The dybbuk box is said to trap the dybbuk and keep it from attacking humans. So, of course Bagans wants to open it. From the press release:

"“On the one-year anniversary of the museum’s opening, the Ghost Adventures team – Zak Bagans, Aaron Goodwin, Jay Wasley and Billy Tolley – will lock down inside Bagans’ Las Vegas Haunted Museum in a special four-hour live Halloween investigation, hosted by special guest Josh Gates of Expedition Unknown. The team will investigate the 33-room historic mansion brimming with hauntings from its own dark past – and that now houses thousands of haunted objects, some so frightening and powerful they can’t even be touched, including Peggy the Doll who is known to cause heart attacks and the infamous Dybbuk Box, believed to be haunted by a malicious spirit.”"

The live event is set for Wednesday, October 31st beginning at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT. With a lineup of special guests and hosted by the wonderful Josh Gates, regardless of the events that take place, it looks to be a good time.

Why anyone would try to open a dybbuk box is beyond me but you can watch it live on TV or stream it on the Travel Channel’s Facebook page and watch the live camera feed for any paranormal occurrences. If you see anything, there will be a place for you to comment on your findings.
