Returning to the 2020 conference!
experiment h437 — brave enough to take part?
If you have ever wanted to come face-to-face with authentic haunted relics -- and take part in paranormal experiments with them – this is your chance! We have added this creepy Saturday daytime session to the roster so that guests can examine, touch, and take part in experiments with actual relics from haunted places, cursed objects, and objects believed to have attachments. Bring your equipment – we’ll also have some on hand – so that you can try to detect and measure the paranormal energy that surrounds these objects. The relics will include a piece of a wall from a documented haunted house, soil from Gettysburg, a brick from the Fort Delaware dungeon, stone from the Edinburgh catacombs, a relic from a Mexican temple, and more!
Part of the experiment will allow participants to take part in the Estes Method of EVP recording. This method (coined by Karl Pfeiffer, Conor Randall, and Michelle Tate) uses a spirit box that has been tapped into soundproof headphones. One participant wears the headphones and a blindfold while the spirit box sweeps across a random radio feed. They are a human receiver and will say out loud any words or phrases they hear. Meanwhile, the other investigators in the room will ask questions that the blindfolded, headphone-wearing person cannot hear. The results of the Estes Method can be stunning because only one person can hear what is coming through the box. If what they speak aloud matches the questions asked by the other investigators, it offers chilling proof of the paranormal.
How the session works: Conference guests can sign up for the experiment on a first come / first served basis after arriving at the event. We will be offering four sessions on Saturday, with only 13 guests in each experiment session. Cost is $20 per person.
SINGULAR FORTEAN SOCIETY’S REPOSITORY OF UNUSUAL STORIES — returning TO HAUNTED AMERICA 2020
The Singular Fortean Society will bring its Repository of Unusual Stories to Haunted America in 2019! Tobias and Emily Wayland look forward to recording your anomalous experiences in an attempt to better understand the experiential and often spontaneous nature of the unexplained. All recorded stories will be added to The Singular Fortean Society’s YouTube channel and shared on Haunted America’s website, but if anonymity is preferred then steps will be taken to assure it—including the exclusion of names, blurring of faces, and anything else that can be done to ensure every story can comfortably become an addition to their ongoing research. Be sure to stop by and see them in the Conference Vendor Room and share your stories of the strange, the haunted, the unexplained, and bizarre!
