Orlando Haunts

Orlando Haunts says the city may be home to theme parks, but it has a hidden history you don’t know about filled with “tragedy, murder-suicide and mystery.”

During the tour, which ranges between 60 and 90 minutes, customers will hear stories about and eyewitness accounts of paranormal activity across downtown Orlando.

Its website says, “Join us for a night of frights and fun as we recount O-Town’s stories of rumrunners, vaudeville performers, and conflict that have led to a series of hauntings still experienced by visitors and locals to this day.”
