If you love a good spooky experience, Ghosts of the Lost Colony is the perfect event for you to partake in during your Outer Banks vacation. An annual spring activity, this ghost tour combines supernatural thrills with intriguing history lessons for an experience the whole family will enjoy.
Head to Roanoke Island – located less than 20 minutes from Surf Side Hotel – for the chance to catch site of a ghost from the lost colony during this interactive tour around the Waterside Theatre grounds and Fort Raleigh National Park. The hour long tours begin at 8 p.m. and Trevor Janzen, the founder of Astral Plane Investigations, will guide you through paranormal hotspots in the area as you learn more about the Native Americans who called the Outer Banks home and the colony of settlers who disappeared from Roanoke Island in the 1500s.
While some supernatural encounters are staged, The Lost Colony’s website states, “…additional encounters have occurred on this tour.”
This family friendly event welcomes children of all ages, as there is no blood or gore in the historical stories or encounters. Cameras are welcome to try and catch ghosts, and comfy shoes and bug spray are recommended for this half mile trek.
Tickets cost $15 per person and children under the age of five are free. Purchase yours online or on site the night of the event.
Once you have your tickets, all that’s left to do is book your stay with Surf Side Hotel. We look forward to seeing you here – and hearing all about your ghost encounters!
