Attending public ghost hunts is often a great way to learn more about exploring the paranormal. But not all ghost hunting events are done well, and some can be quite harmful. There are several signs that may indicate that a ghost hunting event is not a good one. Here are some things to look out for…
How to Recognise a Bad Ghost Hunting Event
Lack of safety precautions
If the organisers do not take safety seriously, such as not providing protective equipment or not identifying potential hazards, this could be a sign of an unprofessional event.
If the organisers promise that participants will see ghosts or have supernatural experiences, this is a red flag. No one can guarantee that paranormal activity will occur, and such claims are often a sign of a scam.
If the event is poorly organized or there is no clear schedule or plan, it may indicate that the organizers are not experienced or do not take the event seriously.
If the price of the event seems too high, this may be a sign that the organisers are more interested in making money than providing a quality experience.
Lack of credibility
If the organisers have a history of making false or exaggerated claims, this is a sign that the event may not be legitimate.
Lack of expertise
If the organisers do not have any apparent experience in ghost hunting, this may be a sign that they are not equipped to lead a successful event.
If the organisers behave unprofessionally or disrespectfully, this may be a sign that they are not taking the event seriously.
In general, it’s important to do your research before signing up for a ghost hunting event.
Look for reviews and testimonials from previous participants, and check the credentials of the organisers to ensure that they are legitimate. The Ghost Club and ASSAP are two great organisations to contact to find out more about paranormal investigations.
If something seems too good to be true or if you have any doubts, it’s better to err on the side of caution and avoid the event altogether.
