Crescent Hotel and Spa, America’s Most Haunted Hotel, Hosts 2012 Paranormal Weekend

January 3, 2012

The 1886 Crescent Hotel and Spa, in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, considered America's most haunted hotel, is hosting the 2012 Paranormal Weekend, Jan. 6-8.

The upcoming ESP (Eureka Springs Paranormal) Weekend 2012, scheduled for January 6-8 in the 1886 Crescent Hotel and Spa, has released its three-day agenda. The agenda includes not only the very popular complete hotel access for attendees to ghost hunt on their own but this year attendees will also be able to attend numerous seminars, speakers, cinematic presentations, and a live theatrical presentation. The hotel, rated as America’s most haunted by Trip Advisor and Yahoo.com, is located here atop Crescent Mountain on the historic loop at 75 Prospect Avenue.

“What we are trying to do is build upon the success of past ESP Weekends and give attendees a full paranormal experience from start to finish,” said Keith Scales, the hotels ghost tour director. “This year we think we have added the ‘wow factor’ with musical presentations by ‘Still On The Hill’, a well known duo who plays exotic instruments creating a kaleidoscope of musical color and texture.”

Weekend activities also include ghost sweeps, several paranormal-based documentaries, technophilia seminar, off-site investigations, themed movies and experiments in telepathy. “However, there will be plenty of time for attendees to tour this haunted mountaintop spa resort, even the morgue, just like TAPS from ‘Ghost Hunters’ did several years ago and then a chance to compare their findings with fellow paranormal enthusiasts,” added Scales.

The weekend starts during Friday check-in when attendees will receive their “paranormal packet”. Following an opening reception; attendees will take the very popular hotel ghost tour; see a film; browse a book fair; and then be part of the exclusive audience for the hotel’s new Midnight Theatre production of “In The Morgue of The Mastermind: Norman Baker Speaks”, an intimate look into the psyche of the charlatan that operated the Crescent Hotel in the late 1930s as a cancer curing hospital.

Saturday has attendees taking an active part in technophilia and telepathy seminars, more ghost hunting in some of the hotel’s most active rooms, another documentary, a movie, plus a séance.

“Perhaps the most popular event each year during this weekend is when attendees -armed with flash drives- compare their findings to the findings of others. They then share those images and EVPs (Electronic Voice Phenomenon) by swapping flash drives and then downloading each other’s evidence,” Scales explained.

The ESP Weekend is an overnight package. Full details can be found on the Crescent Hotel’s paranormal website, americasmosthauntedhotel.com .
