Park City Ghost Tours

Park City is an old mining town that is filled with haunts. It became abandoned once and became a ghost town of its own right.

The ghost tour happens twice a day, once in the light and once at night.On your tour, you’ll meet several of the town’s ghosts. Lizzy is the ghost of the Imperial Hotel. Her husband shot her and her boyfriend as they slept in a bed there. Now she haunts the hotel, especially male guests with beards.

The tour is the most popular attraction in Park City and has received rave reviews. One guest writes, “If you weren’t a believer in the paranormal you will be after this tour.”
