    Hosted a group there last night. If you’re interested in booking this location for a private investigation, you should be aware that this place is made for experienced investigators. Noise discipline is super important, and being professional when an experience does occur, i.e. not running away in the dark.

    That being said, this is my 5th time at this location, and while my experience has been “hit or miss”, last night held some pretty cool experiences. I recommend this location for experienced investigators, and if you are new, please book this location with experienced investigators to show you the ropes.
