“Welcome to a world of possibilities, of nightmares, and hope. Welcome to the reality that is The Haunting of Asylum 49.”
—Dave Schrader, Host of Darkness Radio and Guest Host of Coast to Coast AM
“Being a seasoned investigator myself and a visitor to Asylum 49, I have personally witnessed some of the chilling activity that goes on behind the doors of the Old Tooele Hospital, but what I experienced was just the tip of the iceberg. Discover the events leading to Asylum 49 and follow along as a team of ghost hunters investigate the many paranormal claims coming from inside the building...you may leave with more questions than answers.”

Everybody loves a good scare at Halloween, but visitors to most “haunted houses” know the most frightening things are just actors in monster makeup and spooky special effects. Deep down, we all know that the ghostly inhabitants are fake…
...Except at Asylum 49.
This unassuming former medical facility outside Salt Lake City stands next to a graveyard and is home to a full-contact Halloween haunt with a difference: The ghosts are all too real, and they are very willing to interact with the living. Hundreds of staff members, customers, and ghost hunters have encountered them firsthand over the years.
Join paranormal investigator Richard Estep and Asylum 49 owner Cami Andersen for a behind-the-scenes insider tour of one of the world’s most haunted hospitals. Meet the ghostly children who like to tease unsuspecting visitors and the angry ER doctor who insists on things being done his way...or else. Explore the maze, home to a malicious dark entity named “The Guardian,” and meet Jeremy, who died of severe burns and whose appearances are heralded by the smell of lingering smoke. These and the many other restless spirits have their own stories to tell, their own reasons for continuing to haunt the darkened rooms and shadowy hallways.
And they are very eager to meet you....
