Prepare for a Scare!
By Jay Whipple/Trend Magazine
After telling the serious history of the Queen City for nearly 20 years -- longer than any other tour company -- and due to popular demand, we have finally decided to have some fun while scaring the living daylights out of our guests! Yep, starting Wednesday October 20, 2010, you will be able to partake of our ghoulish offerings by riding and walking along some of the most haunted areas of Uptown Charlotte. From the Revolutionary War in the 1770's and 1780's to the Civil War in the 1860's and until today, creepy tales and hauntings linger in the abyss of antebellum homes, cemeteries, hospitals and streets of the Queen City.
Come one, come all to hear the chilling tales of the macabre while reflecting on eerie days gone by when Charlotteans had to lower themselves to levels less civilized in order to survive and thrive.
This spooktacular event focuses on ghosts, ghouls, and goblins -- also known as people --that have left behind a trail of fear. This spooky tour highlights the worst and most bizarre events in the Queen City and captures human beings at their worst. Everyone has a bad side and we will uncover those naughty, grueling, and horrible events that have to this day left chilling evidence of days best forgotten. In addition to tales of horror and unthinkable madness, we will visit a haunted Revolutionary and Civil War cemetery, a haunted Civil War hospital, haunted homes and antebellum neighborhood.
If seeing is believing then hearing is believable. Hear our well spun tales from the crypt of the macabre as only we can do with nearly 20 years of touring experience. Up until just recently, the Queen City was one of the best kept secrets in the United States. Now that the cat is out the bag, it is time to free its ghostly and eerie past by uncovering some of its deep and dark secrets. Everyone has skeletons in their closets; our tour will not only expose those creepy anomalies but we will take you to where they sleep.
