Peering Into the Paranormal

If you're the ghostbusting type of geek, you may want to buy a ticket to the Haunted Vegas Ghost Hunt. This adventure takes you around the city to visit places where the spirits of celebrities such as Liberace, Elvis, Redd Foxx and Bugsy Siegel are reported to frequent. Tour leaders use EMF meters, temperature guns and dowsing rods to identify paranormal activity. Participants get to keep the complimentary "ghost finder" dowsing rods, plus they are treated to a pizza party and receive a ticket to Madame Tussaud's haunted wax museum. An FAQ on the tour's website assures prospective customers that the tour is "not hokey."
