Ripped from the headlines of Detroit’s past, and not so distant past, this chilling look at the city’s sinister side reveals a reality that’s much more frightening than fiction. Join us – if you dare – and traverse a tragic trail of terror and unmask menacing tales of depravity, rage, retribution, corruption, sadism, torture and pure evil that lurk below the surface of this historic city.
Beautiful by day yet eerily haunting at night, Detroit’s 300-plus years of history and its mix of gothic, neoclassic, and modern architecture create an ominous setting for scary stories of misconduct, murder, misfortune, mayhem and mysticism.
Expert guides will lead you down dimly lit streets, through shadowy back alleys and the heart downtown Detroit and disclose gruesome true crimes of corruption, intrigue, passion, greed, and sheer evil. Chilling stories of mob massacres, black widowers, serial murderers, defilement of the dead, killer cholera, morgue experiments and more!
A tour of Detroit’s sinister side wouldn’t be complete without dabbling into the occult and supernatural. Perhaps, we’ll be the lucky ones to raise Harry Houdini from the dead when we pass by the location where the famous magician gave his final performance. Or, will we see the ghost of Michigan’s “Boy Governor” in the city center where his body is interred. Do the spirits of those who died tragically, whether victims of foul play, horrible accidents or deadly diseases, still wander the streets? Can Detroit’s misfortune be attributed to an evil spirit who has a history of wreaking havoc? Find out on this tour!
Popular haunted houses and ghost tours, with their manufactured fright, are great fun and entertainment. They pale, however, in comparison to these terrifying true crime stories wretched from the headlines of Detroit’s past. It’s these vile and ghastly stories of brutality committed by real people – not ghosts and goblins – that will come to haunt your every thought and plague your dreams.
Disclaimer: Tour may not appropriate for young children – or the faint of heart! In the end, it’s your call!
