I watched as they walked around the place and were shown where all the ghostly hotspots were along with the history of the place. After that, they set up cameras and recorders throughout the building. When it got dark, they shut off all the lights and then two by two they went inside. They not only heard all kinds of noises and voices, they saw a ghost of a woman heading downstairs into the basement only to disappear. At the end of the show they presented the owners with evidence of the sounds of piano playing, and cards shuffling on the recorders, and a heavy cord unwrapping from a bell on the wall by unseen forces on the video camera. Wow, this was so cool, and I was hooked. The show that followed was when they went to St. Augustine Lighthouse and had more cool evidence captured. I started watching Ghost Hunters every week since then, and still do. Yes, it has lost some of its glory and excitement, but I just can’t seem to stop watching.
After seeing that show along with Ghost Adventures and even Ghost Lab’s experiences at the Bird Cage Theatre, I wanted to be a part of a ghost hunt there too. Just this past May, I got to see that dream fulfilled. There were seven of us who got to be a part of the investigation. We also had experiences hearing voices, strange noises, and felt like we were being watched. (Click link to read about our experience.) The three hours was not enough time and we are hoping to investigate the place all night the next time.
Now Fact or Faked is doing an investigation there too. It looks like from the previews they had some weird things happen to them too. (Is this show becoming a ghost hunting show?) Whatever we all encountered while investigating this little place, the Bird Cage Theatre is a creepy and interesting place to do a ghost hunt.
