we stayed in Eureka for four days this was the worst time I ever had what a load of bull. Not even entertaining would never advise anyone to go blocking people who was staying there from getting to their room it was horriable just look up history and read it on the internet probabily better than this tour.
On our 16th wedding anniversary, I for once was able to choose an activity to celebrate this occasion. I chose the Ghost Tour @ the Crescent Hotel. My husband agreed to tag along for the tour, even tho he has no interest in the paranormal and was prepared to be bored. We also had to take our 11 year old daughter with us as our babysitter fell through for the evening.
We had an awesome experience! When we all met in the staff breakroom before the tour began, everyone's digital camera's were malfunctioning, and the tour hadn't even started yet.
Our Tour Guide was very personable, well informed, and interesting. She added to the ambience of the tour. We really enjoyed the history aspect of the Crescent Hotel. Although nothing out of the ordinary occured with my husband or myself, my daughter had an experience on the staircase between floors. As we were descending the staircase, my daughter felt a poke to her side. She was walking in front of us, with no one nearby. She was not frightened at all, and felt comforted by this childlike gesture from beyond. It was reported that a little girl fell to her death years previously, next to the staircase, and will pull pranks on people as they ascend or descend the staircase.
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, especially my sceptic husband, and plan to make this tour our annual Anniversary jaunt! Because our Tour Guide was well informed and made our experience enjoyable and did a wonderful job with keeping us engaged, this tour was well worth the time and money. See you next Anniversary!
Me and my wife went to the Crescent Hotel for our honeymoon. The tour was nice and the tour guide knew alot about it's history and alot about the supernatrual according to my wife whose pagan. We took alot of pictures and saw quite a bit of white orbs not taken in a mirror. and we had one purple and one red. The red means its a aggresive spirit. The only sensation was when I was listening to the guide and felt like someone poked me with a sharp object and I jumped. It scared a couple people when I jumped and the guide asked me what was wrong and thought I got hurt. I told him what happened he said the table I was leaning on was the autopsy table that the doctor used and just coming back Iraq I did not think I was afraid of anything but that just spooked me. In the room we stayed in. My wife said she saw a child in there for a second. Then we found out that is where the children stayed at the hospital. We are going again when I get back from my second tour this year. We tried to get it for halloween but they where booked a year in advance. I would advise going if you are around there. The price was not bad and they gave me a military discount. The people who worked where very nice and courtious and the other sites and shows where great. My wife laughed so hard that she almost had an accident.
I was disappointed that we were not allowed to see any rooms that were supposed to be haunted. There was a lot of history that I found interesting, but standing in the hall through the entire lecture was not that great. Also going to the "morgue" and just seeing clutter plus when the guide seriously told us to take pictures facing a mirror and the orbs we saw would be lost spirits was just funny. If I take a picture close to a mirror anywhere I would assume there would be orbs. Wow I have spirits at my house!
If you are going for history it is a great lecture. If your going for ghost good luck.
Stories were interesting. On the 2nd floor, I sensed a presence that wanted me to come to them. Right at that moment, the tour guide looked over his shoulder and stated that something was right in the spot that I sensed the presence. Later, when I asked him if that was Dr. Baker, he said no, that it was a former patient that was in a lot of distress. When I explained that I felt a need to go to that presence, he asked me if I had former medical experience. I had been a medic with a local fire department for several years. The guide stated that was why I and no one else in the group felt that presence.
In the morgue parts room, my wife saw and took picture of some manifestations. There were four faces peering at us from the upper portion of the room. One photo was of a face on the same locker that a thermal image of a person was obtained by the Sci-fi channels paranormal investigative crew. I was not able to see them but while in that room, my left arm became extremely cold and I became short of breath. "Goose bumps" appeared on that arm that were as large as acne blemishes. My left arm stayed cold for 10-15 minutes while my right arm was warm. The guide felt my arms and stated that the presence in that room had actually touched me.
On the 4th floor by Theadora's room (419), the same thing happened. I moved about 10 feet and the cold went away only to affect me again within seconds after I moved. I moved again and it happened again. It was then that I told my wife that we needed to leave that floor. As soon as we did, the coldness left and my arm warmed again within 10 minutes.
My wife also got pictures on the lower level in the spa area and the men's bathroom of a small child looking out from under a cloth of some sort. This was reflected in a long mirror. She also got a photo of a large streaking "ghost" in another mirror.
On the 2nd floor, a tenant of the hotel opened room 218 (the most active room in the hotel) and allowed the folks on the tour to take photos. My wife got 2 pictures showing orbs in that room.
As I was leaving the hotel, the tour guides were ahead of me by 20 feet and did not know I was behind them. I overheard them talking excitedly that the morgue was getting increasingly acftive and that it was not normal for so many presences to be there.
Take this tour! Be open. Be intuitive. Examine your photos using zoom views. You will be delighted at the results.
We recently visited Eureka Springs and decided to take the ghost tour at the Crescent Hotel. What a mistake - standing in hot hall ways with 20 other people and the worst tour guide I have ever had. The stories were interesting at their core but the guide had trouble speaking in complete and coherent sentences. We left before it was over.
Last year four of us went to both ghost tours in Eureka Springs. We had much more success at the Basin, but the history and the stories from the Crescent are way more interesting. I actually have a picure of an aporition from the Basin. I was standing by myself in the hall (after the tour moved on) and the door behind me opened, seconds later I felt a weird chill and decided to take pictures with my digital camera. In the first couple I only had an Orb but in the third one there was a transparent man at the end of the hall.
I will say that I recommend everyone go on the tours atleast once so they can learn about the hotels, but after that we just went off on our own and had way more success. We are heading back this year and hope to have more success, but if we don't atleast we know we will have a lot of fun. So if you go, try to go with an open mind and enjoy the stories. Please do not ruin it for other people in your tour group...we had a man in our group that made it obvious he did not believe in the paranormal and he made it hard for our tour guide to finish his stories.
I felt like it was more a history of the hotel rather than a ghost tour. It took over two hours standing in the halls beside rooms and then to the morgue that was full of hotel supplies, etc. Really took away the "haunted feeling". The hallways were extremely hot and very uncomfortable. We went in September--cannot imagine what it would be like in the summer.
this is not a tour , you simply stand in this hotel corridor for upto two hours listening to the ramblings of disjointed stories, avoid at all costs!!!!!
very rude guides , some people will be told they have captured ORBS of light on the camera, if you look closely these are mostly reflections on the multiple lenses inside digital cameras, we saw many orbs on the photos we took in town in daylight too.
Four of us took this tour and were all extremely disappointed. A tour for which folks paid $17.50 each is not the place for a "probie" tour guide to do a dress rehearsal. She referred to a script throughout, then would stop and ask her "mentor" what she had forgotten. The tour took well over two hours and consisted of disjointed ghost stories told in various hallways in front of various room doors. Last and least was a trip to the "morgue" where she demonstrated how the door was blocked by something each time she tried to open it. Turned out to be dragging on the PVC sewage pipe on the floor just inside the room. Two of us just gave up and left. What a rip off!!
