PUBLIC GHOST HUNTS: Kingseat Maximum Security – Oct 11th & 18th 2014

Due to the great numbers of requests from the general public to attend our investigations, we decided to run a handful of public ghost hunts, so that fans, followers and supporters of the group could get the chance to see what it’s like and get a taste of the paranormal investigation field for a few hours. The first event was at The Pumphouse Theatre in Takapuna.

The night was a huge success and further investigation nights were asked for.

The team decided to come out of their safety zone yet again, holding an even bigger public event. This time at the Maximum Security buildings of the old Kingseat Hospital complex, now utilised by Asylum Paintball who have been incredibly welcoming and generous in giving the team unlimited access to the building for research and investigation. Two nights in weekly succession were held in October. Each night inviting 40 lucky budding investigators to join the team for a night of education, investigation, food and a lot of fun. Below is some of the wonderfully positive feedback we recieved via the Haunted Auckland Facebook page and a selection of photos from the nights.

Paranormal Investigator and Founder of Haunted Auckland. I have been a mad researcher of everything Paranormal, Extraterrestrial and Crypto-zoological, since early childhood. When not creating electronic music, watching Horror movies and documentaries, archiving and documenting NZ’s diverse and eclectic music history, I have spent countless hours investigating and furthering my research out in the field, either as part of a group or solo, since the early 80′s. I’ve spent much time in opportunistic investigations whilst travelling around New Zealand and Internationally.
