Haunted Activities FAQs

QAre the tours handicap accessible?
For trolley tours, we need prior notice to adjust our vehicle to accommodate a wheelchair. Walking tours are handicap accessible (we do not provide wheelchairs)

QDo we get out on trolley or coach tours?
No-However, we do stop for a few minutes in front of the more active sights on each tour so passengers can take photos from the vehicle. Keep in mind that houses on the trolley tours aren’t spotlighted, so they may be more difficult to see them in the evening.

QWill we see a ghost?
We don’t guarantee ghosts but, we have had amazing photos taken during our tours which can be interpreted as ghosts. Keep in mind that “orbs” or light-balls you see in photos can be dust, rain, your finger over the lens or other natural occurrences. ***If you take photos of the supernatural, please send them to the chamber along with your name at marketing@atchisonkansas.net so we can post them on our site for others to interpret.

QIs the tour scary?
We share history and ghost stories at each location. Sometimes the places we stop at can be dark which creates and eerie atmosphere. We don’t have people jump out at guests or dress as scary monsters.

QCan my 9 year old child go on the tour?
We set a base age at 12 years old, unless otherwise stated. Sometimes, we tell very descriptive or disturbing stories. We leave it up to the parent to decide whether their child is mature enough to take the tours. Children 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
