A hundred years ago, thousands flocked to Excelsior Springs for the healing power of the mineral waters. Some were healed, and some were not. This tour will take you on an exploration of the paranormal experiences and stories that haunt the area. Tour includes a guided excursion through downtown with stops at the Hall of Waters and a ghost tour at the Elms Hotel. Much of the tour involves walking and stair climbing. Comfortable shoes are highly recommended. $40 Tickets will be available starting September 1. *Souvenir T-shirts will be available for pre-purchase through the registration page so that you can guarantee your quantity and sizes.
Spirits and Spirits Tour
October 19 – 6:30-10:30pm
We’ll start you off with heavy appetizers and a cocktail at the 88 at the Elms and a full ghost tour of the historic hotel. Then you’ll hop aboard the trolley and go to Dubious Claims Brewing Co. where you’ll enjoy a special dessert paired with a cocktail just for this occasion and you’ll hear about their hauntings. Guests will then be whisked away on the trolley & taken to Golf Hill Grille and treated to a spirited cocktail and hear the mysteries of the cabin and then off to Y Liquor for a special spirits tasting. The final stop will be at the most historic (and probably haunted!) bar in the midwest – the Atlas Saloon & Brewery. Tickets are now available.
