No offence, but $100 seems a little steep. It depends on the person I suppose.

Was it just a tour, or was there extra. How long did it last? Thanks

It was the paranormal investigation held at the Old Melb once a month. You have to buy your tickets through Ticketek, and belive me the sell pretty fast.

Basically you arrive there at 9pm and you leave around 5-6am. You are apparently taking part in an ivestigation for the night in which they seperate you into groups and place you in cells with different types of equipment to try and record any paranormal activity.

they did do a little experiment where they asked you if you would like to be locked in a dark cell by yourself for half an hour, which i found to be a little on the 'theatrical' side... more for scares in my opinion.
Other than that i thought it was really interesting and i really liked taking part in it, Although that is the only investigation i have ever been a part of so i'm not sure if thats how they work or not but you get the gist!

:)
Hope that helps!

Not worth going, overrated and nothing else I have to say is complimentary.
If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, we have at least to consider the possibility that we have a small aquatic bird of the family anatidae on our hands.

Fair enough. Maybe i'm just easily pleased!  (small things amuse small minds...) :)
Don't get me wrong, there were some things i thought were crap, and could have been done a lot better, but i had never been on anything even remotely like it so i wouldn't know if they were full of it or not.
when did you guys go? do you know the ppl that run the investigations?

We hired the place for the night and the people who run the night stayed with us.

It isn't a newer group of people. It is the same old crew, with the old leader pretending to not be as involved and his old crew pretneding to lead.
