Ghost Wagon Tours is one of the most unique and interesting haunted ghost tours, as it is a custom-built rolling ghost on wheels, which leads the participants! On this 90-minute walking tour through the historic haunted downtown areas, you can hear and see the possible ghosts on their radar screen, as the wagon moves along. I recommend this tour for the braver travelers.
