Z WARD GHOST HUNTS (PARANORMAL INVESTIGATION)
Z Ward for the Criminally Insane at Glenside Hospital, previously Parkside Lunatic Asylum.
Is Z Ward really haunted? Are those rumours true? Now is your chance to find out!
Z Ward has long been a fascination for those interested in the paranormal, and there was always one question raised… is it really haunted? Join us, in this unique opportunity to explore and lets find out!
Completed in 1885 and shut in 1973, this stand-alone building with its impressive and inescapable Ha Ha wall, housed many of the States violent or criminally insane patients. No wonder it has gained a reputation for ghosts and strange goings on.
The new owners of Z Ward (Beach Energy) planned to start building works earlier this year to modify Z Ward for use as offices. However, this has been put on hold and for a short time, they are permitting the National Trust of South Australia to operate selected tours to allow South Australians a glimpse of the unique history that is Z Ward. Adelaide’s Haunted Horizons Ghost Tours have once more, been asked to service the night tours and in so doing, raise money for much needed heritage projects.
Are we excited? You bet!
Can we promise a ghost? No and we are not going to even pretend we can
Is it haunted? Let’s find out!
The above was our original and very honest advertising. We took people in for 69 nights and we can indeed say we had unusual events happen. Just as it was starting to get interesting, including watching a mobile phone fly 3 m across a room.... the tours finished and we were unable to explore the subject any further. Now, we are back and can continue the investigating, and you can help us do that.
Rather than allow just paranormal research teams to investigate such an important part of our heritage, we felt that you, the public, deserved the same opportunity to come on that journey with us. We only have a certain amount of time, to log any activity within this building before its adaptive reuse in the future and we are unsure on what that time will be. With the journey, comes the raising of funds for heritage projects for Z Ward and other heritage projects, to preserve this history for future generations. You can be a part of that, and have fun along the way!
