Frequently Asked Questions
Ghost Tour Frequently Asked Questions – do you have a question about Adelaide’s Haunted Horizons Ghost Tours™? Then look for the answer here!
Who is behind Adelaide's Haunted Horizons Ghost Tours™ (H.H.)
Although having appeared on TV many times, Alison makes it clear that she is not a ‘TV Investigator’, and has in fact turned down opportunities for this. Instead she has continued to seriously research the subject for well over half of her lifetime, if not all of it.
Now she wants to share that wealth of experience with you!
Alison is often present on these tours, if not taking them herself, and is available for questions or book signings. Alison is also available for any other lectures or interviews.
Do we enter haunted buildings?
Haunted Horizons™ has been granted exclusive access to some of our most haunted, historical icons of our State, including the Adelaide Arcade. At these venues, you can either do a 2hr Ghost Tour or arm yourself with all that equipment you have seen on the shows, before setting off to discover for yourself if ghosts are real.
These are more than just a tour, they are an experience (although we can’t always promise it will be one of a ghostly kind!).
With our ‘Dark History Tours’ street tours, these relate history in a fun and very different way. For this reason we do not enter any buildings, except occasionally the Arcade. Our Murder & Madness tours are conducted in the Adelaide Gaol or Z Ward.
Will we see a ghost?
If it did there would be no sceptics in the world.
It also does not perform like a circus animal on command.
This is part of ‘Keeping it Real’… we refuse to put anything on, for you to think you have had an experience.
Do you take private groups?
For Corporate we can offer a spot of Ghost Hunting in one of our dark and creepy locations, including the Adelaide Gaol, Tailem Town, Z Ward or the National Railway Museum.
Groups become very bonded when sharing the experience of fear and working together to overcome it.
Maybe, you just want to take a group of employees for a night out and would like to include a short tour in which case we can cater for these too with a 2hr Ghost, Dark History or Murder & Madness tour.
To truly keep the tour private, maximum numbers would be needed or we reserve the right to add the public.
How many do I need to come on a ghost tour?
Do you only do tours on advertised nights?
How many do I need to make it private?
For our specials at Burra and Moonta we would need 15 to consider it private on these nights.
On nights away from Fri/Sat we can relax this to fewer in number.
Do you do charity work?
One way we can help is to run a special tour and donate 50% of the takings back to the Charity organising it (only available for our street tours).
If you are looking to raise money then contact us and see what we can do for you. Be aware due to the number of requests each week for ticket donations to quiz nights etc, we have had to stop doing this.
We are proud supporters of beyondblue and are raising money for the CFS Foundation.
Unlike others, we do not ask you to donate – we choose to donate from our own profits that come from ghost tours, ghost hunts, or special events.
Do you provide transport?
We encourage guests to make their own way to our venues. Local pick up from hotels and drop off is available as a courtesy for some tours run in Adelaide, but only if the driver and the bus is available on the night.
This courtesy, is for local City Tours only and from Hotels situated in Adelaide itself. Any other destination will incur a cost.
Feel free to contact us for more information on your needs and our transport.
Do you allow alcohol on your tours?
Neither Haunted Horizons™ nor our venues have liquor licenses, therefore to allow drinking and the consumption of alcohol would be breaching laws.
We are also working in darkened areas with uneven surfaces so the consumption of alcohol or the use of drugs would constitute a safety hazard.
Those who arrive under the influence of alcohol or drugs will be refused entry for safety reasons and no refund will be given. Those who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs and are ruining the tour for other guests, will be asked to leave and no refund given.
Are children allowed on your ghost tours?
The reason for this is that we keep our tours very real. These are not your ‘ghost train’ type tour for entertainment or thrills. We often do have activity and on occasion it can be very challenging, as can the subject matter.
It is for this reason that we have set an age limit and even then it is on the parents understanding that these tours can get very real sometimes. Any person under 18 should be accompanied by a supervising adult.
This will only be allowed once I have spoken to the parents on the type of activity we experience and only with their acknowledgement and understanding that should anything happen, they take full responsibility for their child (and any ongoing therapy afterwards!).
We do on occasionally on school holidays, organise a ghost tour for a younger audience at the Adelaide Gaol or National Railway Museum.
We do NOT relax the age limit for the Ghost Hunts unless it is privately booked. These are strictly 18+.
Will you be discounting your tours on voucher sites?
The only time you will see our tours on these sites, will be the street tours and, only in times where there is a traditional seasonal drop In numbers. After all… we need to keep those facts fresh in our heads!
We never discount our ghost tours or ghost hunts on these voucher sites. We don’t need to.
Our tours speak for themselves by being popular and booked out most of the time.
We believe in giving you a quality experience in the most exciting venues we can find.
To achieve this for you, it costs money with venue costs, wages for the best guides we can find, insurance etc.
Although we strive to keep our prices as low as we can, we would prefer to bring you a quality, professionally run tour and not a budget tour.
We believe our guests appreciate this more.
Will our ghost tour be cancelled?
With weather, we will go ahead with the tour unless there is a severe weather warning and it would be too risky or dangerous to travel or be out in the open. If it is simply raining then we will go ahead. After all, it is what brollies were invented for 🙂
These are just some of the questions I am asked about our Ghost Tours. If you have any further questions that I have missed here… feel free to email me and I will add it to this list.
