MIDTOWN Macabre: Detroit Trail of Terror Walking Tour
In the spirit of London's Jack the Ripper Tours & other big city true crime/haunted tours, our new offering, MIDTOWN Macabre: Trail of Terror Walking Tour, features murder, mayhem & mysticism ripped straight from the headlines of Detroit's past.
Historic Gothic cathedrals and Victorian mansions of bygone eras create an ominous setting for scary stories of murder, mayhem and mysticism in a part of Detroit once home to the infamous "Cass Corridor."
Expert guides will lead you down dimly lit streets and through shadowy back alleys where they’ll disclose gruesome true crimes of passion, greed, and sheer evil. Chilling stories of serial killers (several of which are still-at-large)
A trail of terror through Midtown wouldn’t be complete without dabbling into the occult and supernatural. Perhaps, we’ll be the lucky ones to raise Harry Houdini from the dead when we stop by the former funeral home where the famous magician briefly lay in state before his body was shipped to New York for burial. Maybe, along the way, we’ll spot Detroit’s version of Chucky - the doll inhabited by evil that comes to life and wreaks havoc - or other spooky specters.
"Your nervous laughter won’t keep the evil spirits at bay on this tour," adds Risko. "But don’t worry; we won’t mock your feeble attempts to contain your fright."
Cost for the Midtown Macabre: Trail of Terror Walking Tours is $15 per person in advance and $20 on the day of the tour. Tours are scheduled on the last two weekends of October including Halloween Monday. They run approximately two hours in length and cover approximately two miles. Tours are probably not appropriate for young children or the faint of heart! In the end, it’s your call.
Tours depart promptly from the lobby of The Park Shelton, 15 East Kirby, Detroit. For tour times and schedule, please visit: http://hometownhistorytours.com.
