Plot Synopsis

Paranormal investigators Zak Bagans and Aaron Goodwin document supernatural activity at haunted locations, both domestic and international. During their investigations -- which included Nick Groff for the first 10 seasons -- the crew learns about the area, interviews locals about hauntings, and gets up close and personal with the spirits reportedly inhabiting these locations. Armed with night vision cameras, digital recording equipment and unique provoking techniques, the crew readies themselves for an overnight investigation. While being locked down from dusk til dawn, the Ghost Adventures crew investigates each location's paranormal activity. At the end of each episode, an independent, third-party team of paranormal specialists conducts a scientific analysis to decipher and analyze the evidence caught on camera. In Season 7 (Fall 2012), the crew travels to new locations including Sugar Lands, TX to investigate the Central Unit Prison and Point Sur, CA's historic Point Sur Lighthouse. The group also explores the 150-year-old Black Moon Manor mansion in Greenfield, IN, the haunted happenings at Sauk Centre, MN's Palmer House Hotel, and the paranormal activity at the Excalibur Nightclub. The 13-episode eighth season of GHOST ADVENTURES premieres on Friday, August 16, 2013 at 9pm ET/PT on Travel Channel, as Zak, Nick and Aaron explore unexplained paranormal activity all over the world in their never-ending quest to understand ghostly phenomena. Plus, Season 8 features the show's 100th episode (Friday, October 4) and a one-hour retrospective special, "Ghost Adventures: Up Close & Personal," on Friday, September 27 at 9pm ET/PT, during which the team looks back on 100 of their most unforgettable moments. In addition, this season also features a special two-hour Halloween episode that takes viewers to Transylvania, where the team will explore the truth behind the legend of Count Dracula, as they investigate the most terrifying haunted castles in this intriguing and historical Romanian province. Other lockdown locations include the 150-year-old Black Swan Inn in San Antonio, TX; the Tuolumne General Hospital in the old mining town of Sonora, CA; the notoriously violent Missouri State Penitentiary in Jefferson City, MO; the Yost Theater and Ritz Hotel in Santa Ana, CA; a haunted century-old Victorian Mansion just outside of Boston, and more. Moving to a new night of the week, GHOST ADVENTURES returned for its ninth season on Saturday, February 15, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT on Travel Channel. In the Season 9 premiere, Zak, Nick and Aaron explored the Oman House -- a Los Angeles home ridden with paranormal activity believed to be directly related to the infamous Sharon Tate murders, which took place just 200 feet from the property by Charles Manson and his cult of followers in 1969.

Inexplicable technical issues plague the team from the start.
