Posted by at 2:47 pm on March 20, 2012

Popular Travel Channel spookfest Ghost Adventures is entering its sixth season with a shocking slate of guests and new scary locales. Recently the team that includes; Zak Bagans (Host and Lead Investigator), Nick Groff (Co-host and Investigator) and Aaron Goodwin, (Investigator) spoke about the show’s history, their experiences with the paranormal and what fans can expect in season six starting with the first episode that finds them locked down in Colorado’s historic Peabody-Whitehead mansion.

History of the Peabody-Whitehead Mansion

Built in 1889 its first owner Dr. William R. Whitehead was convinced the building was plagued by the spirits of hundreds of soldiers he tried to save from his days as a surgeon for the Confederate Army during the United States Civil War. After his death when controversial Colorado governor James Peabody moved into the mansion,things went from bad to worse as the governor, who was notorious for his aggressive union busting activities, spent his time in the house being hostile and abusive to those he thought were not his social equals.

USC fighter Brendan Traub joins the team and hopes to shed some light on the evil entities in order to learn more about the darkness that lies within the walls of this well-known location.

Nick Groff Talks About the Mansion Lockdown

During their lock down in the mansion, the team encounters some strong negative energy in the basement, after hearing a story from a visitor of an unconfirmed crime that may have taken place there in the 1970’s. When discussing the mansion Nick Groff reaclls:

“And then the other location which was really interesting is in Denver, Colorado. We went to this old Peabody Mansion and it was really cool to have Brendan come in, the UFC fighter and Zak’s friend there. And we brought him in and his expression – Zak, weren’t you saying to Aaron like his expression was priceless when we had that voice come through on the spirit box saying she was raped in an unsolved murder case that we were actually trying to dig up. But it was a rumor to be that so we were trying to dig up information but we were communication with some sort of spirit that came through saying those exact clear words and it was absolutely mind blowing.”

Partying With The Sprirts

The team’s “Bro”stbuster” style shows in some other the other locations that they discussed for the upcoming season, Zak Bagans talked about the teams visit to the Riviera Hotel in Vegas:

“…we had the lead singer for Motely Crue, Vince Neal. Vince was a guest investigator recently in our Las Vegas episode. We investigated the Riviera Hotel about a week ago and we investigated Frank Sinatra’s old suite. And the Riviera’s the oldest standing hotel still on the main part of the Las Vegas strip – not in downtown – but it was built in 1955 and it’s still one of the original ones that hasn’t been imploded yet.

They opened up the doors which is very very uncommon for a casino resort that is still in operation to allow us to investigate and they let us do that. And we investigated Frank Sinatra’s old suite. We had Frank Sinatra’s old pianist who played his old private parties come in and play the piano. We had Vince Neal bring in a whole entourage of girls. Frank Sinatra would have loved that. And we also brought in a World Series of Poker 2008 Star won 12 million dollars, Jamie Gold.

And we threw our own Vegas party with who – you know, Frank would bring in high notable guests, we brought in notable guests. And to be honest with you once everybody got in there we thought it was just going to be – you know, we didn’t’ know how this was going to go and then things got really serious after about an hour.”

Ghost Adventures is a big edgier and lively the some of it’s “night mode video” competition, the guys dip into the the background of the episode’s location and mix a goodly amount of storytelling in with the actual “Bro”st-hunting” lock down. If you are a sceptic or someone of a particularly scientific mindset, you will probably have to lock those ideas in a box to really get into the whole spirit vibe. But give it a shot and you might be surprised.

This season they are enthused about new technology and instruments that when combined with their aggressive, persistent communication methods, will get them even more first person encounters with the paranormal. Ghost Adventures airs weekly on the Travel Channel.
