Adelaide Arcade Ghost Tour

Adelaide Arcade Ghost Tour as featured on Channel 9, Today Show, and Haunting: Australia

Adelaide Arcade Ghost Tour – is the Arcade really haunted?  Many who work and visit there, claim it is! Come on an Adelaide Haunted Horizons Adelaide Arcade Ghost Tour and explore those ghost stories for yourself, on this exclusive tour… after dark!

Why would the Adelaide Arcade be haunted?

How about three terrible deaths since it opened in 1885. As the oldest shopping Arcade in Australia, it certainly has seen its share of tragedy.

1. 1887 Francis Cluney, the caretaker of the Arcade met with a tragic and horrific accident.
2. 1902 death from gas inhalation of a small boy. Was it an accident, or was he murdered by his mother?
3. 1904 – a young lady, shot in the back by her husband. Her husband felt the end of a rope in the Old Adelaide Gaol.

Meet the Arcade Ghosts

There are many experiences told by both staff and visitors and the reports keep growing:

1. Dark shadowy figures and full-bodied apparitions witnessed by security and staff. 
2. Reports of footsteps pacing on the 2nd floor of Gays Arcade
3. Children heard playing and running
4. Doors slamming
5. People being gently touched
6. A little boy is seen standing close by, before vanishing in front of witnesses.

These are just some of the ghost stories told on the Adelaide Arcade Ghost Tour… there are many more!

Book our Adelaide Arcade Ghost Tour and maybe you will go home with a ghostly tale of your own too!

Please note that the Arcade itself will be lit, but our visit to the original old tearoom beneath the Arcade will be in darkness.
