GET HAUNTED has designed its paranormal events so they are suitable for all levels of experience. For those new to the paranormal and have no equipment, we’ll be there to guide you every step of the way. For those that are no stranger to investigating, we’ll happily work right alongside you as you navigate the location. Maybe we can learn from each other!


Those who still roam “the bloodiest 47 acres in America” are waiting for you! Join us as we explore and investigate the MISSOURI STATE PENITENTIARY!

Please contact us with any questions.


• While our events have a format, they are not structured to the point where you are a spectator. We are there to work together, as one unit. As a team.
• Once checked in, the evening will begin with introductions and if available, a historical tour.
• We will then gather to develop a plan based on our format.
• Smaller groups will be assigned based on experience levels, and off we will go. This is so you’ll have the best public investigation possible. The entire evening is about you. We investigate WITH you, not in front of you.
• During the investigation will discuss and utilize various investigative techniques, equipment, and methodologies. We will spend plenty of time in the known hotspots to see who or what we can coax out of the darkness.
• Later, we will regroup and recap our experiences.
• Now it’s time for the second phase to begin. This is where you go off on your on and explore utilizing what we've already covered, or your own techniques. Someone will always be close by to help you out if needed. You can also use our equipment.
• Throughout the night we will offer various experiments and challenges …. if you're feeling like testing your limits!
• Refreshments and snacks will be available all night. Feel free to bring your own.


What to Expect -
• A clean and legitimate investigation. Nothing is faked. Nothing is staged. We will try to debunk everything as much as we can.
• Fun, friendly, and experienced investigators. We have been doing this for a long time now and quite frankly, we can keep it fun, even on those "quiet" nights.
• A balanced approach to investigating. We approach it from all angles – scientifically, spiritually, and psychologically.
• Evidence that you can take home with you. With Get Haunted, you will be able to bring home most of the evidence we capture that evening (if any). Some evidence, like video footage, needs to be reviewed but we will make that available to you as well.
• If nothing else, a fun night of spooky adventure, stories, and great company. This event is most definitely “family style”.
• We have many repeat guests, and we think that is a testament to the staff and what we do.


What You Should Bring -
• A flashlight (red would be best)
• An open mind
• A sense of humor
• A camera
• Any of your own equipment (it’s okay if you don’t have any – we have plenty)
• And… a bit of courage!

We are a very fun and exciting team to work with, but we are very serious about respecting the property, other people's experiences, and the law. Do not show up under the influence of anything, do not show up looking to be rowdy, do not even think about damaging or defacing anything onsite…. we love our location owners as much as we love our guests! Good news - we haven't had any issues yet!


Brief History - The Missouri State Penitentiary, the oldest operating prison west of the Mississippi, opened its doors in 1836 and was finally shut down in 2004. With 168 years of history, it certainly had its share of executions, murders, escapes and riots.
From 1937 to 1989, a total of 40 inmates were executed in the gas chamber, 39 men and 1 woman. Over time, many serious assaults took place, which resulted in the nickname “the bloodiest 47 acres in America”. The early years saw many escapes, partly due to an unsecure perimeter. Escape attempts continued throughout the 1900s and while a few made it, many did not.
The Penitentiary made national headlines in 1954 when a violent riot broke out within its walls. Nearly 2,500 inmates were running loose, starting fires, and creating a nightmare of chaos that lasted almost 14 hours.

Paranormal Activity – With its long and vicious past, is it any wonder that the activity experienced here is nothing short of incredible. Shadow figures, apparitions, and being touched, both physically and emotionally have been reported within this massive location. Loud bangs and footsteps have been heard and the odors of smoke and body odor from unseen sources have also occurred. The question that remains is .. Are you brave enough to face these spirits with us?
