Dying to take a ride on the dark side of San Diego?

| September 6, 2012 | 0 Comments

Old Town Trolley hosts will entertain telling ghost and graveyard stories.

Prepare to enter the boundless realm of the supernatural. The happy ghost haunters of Old Town Trolley beckon you to take a trip in their buggy of doom for a journey around San Diego’s darker side. The limited engagement is September through October 2012 only, and reservations are required at (619) 298-8687.

As dusk approaches the tour starts in the dead center of the Old Town Marketplace, located at 4010 Twiggs Street in Old Town, where your ghost host will tell you a tale of sea monsters. Stories of murder and death by hanging are but a few happy thoughts for a gloomy evening, a spiritual uplifting so to speak.

Your buggy of despair then spirits you away from Old Town winding its way to a little known park with a tales of an historic cemetery in Mission Hills. You should really watch your step while there. Then you’ll descend down to the Maritime Museum along the Port and hear its tantalizing tales of terrifying sailing stories.

As you head back to Old Town and your final destination, the ghost host will tell stories of being buried alive. It’s an “undertaking task.”

On a walk through El Campo Santo Cemetery you’ll perhaps meet the pioneers of San Diego who should have remained six feet underground.

Your last walk will take you to America’s most haunted, outside on the Whaley House grounds, where stories of the past will dig up memories of the tragic Whaley family.

Your evening concludes with this question in your mind. Is something or someone standing in the shadows beside you? Decide for yourself. Sweet dreams.

This tour is not appropriate for children. The tour runs most dark and stormy nights; so, dress appropriately. Part of the tour is walking. Comfortable shoes are advised, or you will be dead on your feet.
