Park City Ghost Tours in Park City
The owners of Park City Ghost Tours, Rob, and Lela Newey have put their experience as former history teachers to good use by developing this unique experience that not only capitalizes on their love for storytelling but also their passion for events of the past. These two have spent the last 12+ years sifting through countless tales and conducting numerous interviews to cultivate the most enthralling tour to share with their guests. They have even partnered up with filmmaker, Erik Hutchins, to beef up the tour with his studies on metaphysics and paranormal activity including human ESP, and the mysteries of crop circles. Park City Ghost Tours was ranked #2 Ghost Tour in the USA by Trip Advisor, making it an experience that you don’t want to miss!
Grimm Ghost Tours in SLC
For anyone who prefers a more hands-on approach, Grimm Ghost Tours busses guests from site to site and allows them to get up close and personal with the various haunted locations. On this tour, you will even have the opportunity to test out their ghost hunting equipment! Grimm Ghost Tours offers a wide variety of tour options to choose from, which is enhanced even further with their paranormal investigation offerings.

Story Tours in Ogden and Salt Lake City
Story Tours offers both walking and bus tours for anyone interested in learning more about the spooky history of Salt Lake City or Ogden. This company has been around for 16 years, so you know that they have truly mastered the art of getting you all riled up! On a more serious note, did you know that Ogden was once considered one of the most dangerous cities in the US? It’s true! There was a time when even Al Capone deemed the area to be too rough for him. Such a seedy history provides the perfect archive of exhilarating tales and wild occurrences.
The Other Realm in Logan
For our friends in Northern Utah, Logan is another city that offers the perfect setting for a spooky tour! While the annual Historic Downtown Ghost Tour has been canceled, The Other Realm is still going strong by continuing to offer frightful experiences for anyone brave enough! This unique company specializes in paranormal investigations at The Whittier Community Center. This building has been around for more than 112 years, making for a rich history! This ghost hunt is often booked out, so be sure to inquire well in advance, especially now that space is limited to better follow COVID guidelines.
