Ever since the Inlet Public-Private Association renovated the lighthouse tower, rebuilt the Keeper’s Cottage and re-opened the site to visitors in the late 1990s, several staff and volunteers have shared stories of being alone on the property but hearing footsteps and voices, smelling smoke, and even seeing a few ghostly apparitions. Now is your chance to find out if there is any validation to these claims.
Visit Absecon Lighthouse on March 21 to partake in your own Ghost Investigation, led by the New Jersey Researchers of Paranormal Evidence (NJROPE). NJROPE will be on the property to help you hunt for ghosts in the five paranormal “hot spots” identified at the two-acre property, museum and tower in their previous paranormal investigations.
Participants will use equipment such as light boxes, glow balls, K2 meters and cameras to detect voices and electromagnetic fields. Participants are encouraged to bring their own equipment as well. Hear NJROPE’s eerie recordings taken during previous paranormal investigations. Guided tours of our grounds and tower will let you experience an authentic paranormal investigation.
Reservations are required. Please call 609-449-1360. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the three-hour investigation begins promptly at 7 p.m. and concludes promptly at 10 p.m. Tickets are $45 and must be reserved in advance. There will be five teams of eight participants in each investigative team, and participants must be at least 16 years of age. Results are not guaranteed.
