Do you want to participate in a real paranormal investigation at one of the most haunted locations in Florida? Join us on any Friday or Saturday night as we conduct a Ghost Hunt at the authentic Old Jail of St. Augustine, Florida. The Old Jail is listed on the Florida and National Registry of Haunted Places, and has been featured on numerous TV shows, including Ghost Hunters and Paranormal Seekers.Built in 1891, this St. Augustine landmark was once home to the County's most vicious and violent criminals, the worst of whom were hanged at the gallows on the property. Now a museum, guests can come and learn of its past, its infamous residents, and its most famous Sheriff, Joe Perry, all during the comfort of daylight hours. But in the quiet of the night, the most daring of guests can join us on one of our Ghost Hunts inside this haunted building, where paranormal phenomena, from full-bodied apparitions to disembodied voices, have been seen and recorded.

The old jail para investigation was a lot of fun. Seeing the old jail at night was was worth the price of admission. The "ghouls" running the night were great leading you down the path or letting you go off on your own. For something interactive and fun to do this fits the bill

We made a trip up to st Augustine for a weekend getaway. The main attraction for our trip was the investigation at the old jail. The guides were personable and knowledgable on the history of the jail and the paranormal occurrences associated with the property. As they are there often they seem to have a relationship with the property and... More

Had a very good time, tour and investigation was great, tour guides were awesome and funny, it was nice to be around people that have a sense of humor which made it that much more enjoyable. I would consider this a must do if you like this type of attraction.

The Old Jail was a great tour. I would suggest that you take this tour if you visit St. Augustine, it's worth the money and the people who give the tour are really amazing.

We went on a girls getaway and chose the Ghost and Graveyard tour. This ended with a lock in at the old jail. Our Jail tour guide was a great actor! The rest of the tour provided awesome ghost stories and photo ops.

Although I am a skeptic I had a wonderful time and would suggest to anyone while they are in St. Augustine. I've never much believed on the paranormal, but after this experience I must admit there are some unexplained experiences.
