Tour Information

On Saturday, June 20, experienced ghost hunters and curious beginning paranormal hobbyists are invited to attend a unique event at Perryville Battlefield. Nick Groff, co-creator and star (Seasons 1-10) of Ghost Adventures on the Travel Channel will be bringing the Nick Groff Tour to the site of the largest Civil War battle in the state of Kentucky. Attendees will be treated to a meet & greet with Groff, a question/answer session, and will finish the evening investigating the battlefield and John Dye House alongside the celebrity ghost hunter.

Earlier this year, Groff, along with Kentucky’s own SHOCK Paranormal team, launched the Nick Groff Tour. The tour features live paranormal events across the U.S. where attendees get to visit iconic haunted locations while searching for spirits with Groff, as well as other well-known paranormal researchers and investigators. To date, tour stops have included haunted prisons, asylums and even Bobby Mackey’s Music World in Wilder, Kentucky.

General Admission tickets to the event start at $30. The full VIP Experience includes the investigation, meet and greet,
