Ghost Tours

The new Paranormal

For 12 years Paranormal has taken visitors on a tour through Asbury Park’s haunted history.  It has been our pleasure and our honor to do so.  We have met so many friends through the tours, so many who became like family.

It simply would not be the same if we did not continue to tell this city’s stories.  But the world has shifted and we must move with it.  And so, we have shifted as well. There is a new “paranormal”.  But don’t worry…it is still awesome.

We will be using a new state of the art audio app system that will allow us to speak directly into your ear while you stand or move where you choose.  We will have people around to help you social distance and to make certain you’re space is also respected.

In order to take this tour you will be required to download our app and have headphones. We can provide you with wired headphones for free or blue tooth headphones for $5.  The headphones are yours to keep. You will also be required to wear a mask.  Paranormal has disposable masks available or we have spectacular styled masks available for a nominal fee.

Our primary goal is to keep the number of ghosts in Asbury Park stagnant this summer.  We are required to wear masks for your safety and weak that you do the same for ours.

Finally, our tours will be limited in size.  Should you want a private tour for just your party, we can arrange the with enough notice.  Our walking tours take 75-90 minutes in length and we ask that you dress comfortably and be prepared to walk about 1/2 mile at a very leisurely pace.
