CASPER, Wyo. — Fort Caspar will soon be giving people an opportunity to try their hand at paranormal investigations with “Ghost Investigations at Fort Caspar” on April 28. Tickets go on sale April 1 at the museum.

Guides will lead guests around the fort’s grounds and buildings in small groups, looking for paranormal activity. Participants will be able to try out ghost hunting equipment such as spirit boxes, infrared thermometers, audio recorders and laser grids. After the event, participants will have an opportunity to share the evidence they found with one another.

The hour-long tours will begin every 30 minutes, with the first tour leaving at 7 p.m. and the last leaving at 9:30 p.m. There will be three different areas of exploration to choose from: the fort buildings, the fort grounds and the fort cemetery.

Purchasing tickets is recommended.

Tickets are on sale for $15 and are available for sale in person at the Fort Caspar Museum or over the phone with a credit card. They are being sold on a first-come, first-served basis.

Participants should wear good shoes and dress warmly for walking outdoors in the dark. They are also asked to bring a flashlight, and digital cameras are allowed if guests want to commemorate the experience.

Children under 8 years of age are discouraged from participating, and children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
