Investigate with Nick Groff
Since leaving Travel Channel’s Ghost Adventures, Nick Groff has diversified and started touring. Nick is the Executive Producer and Creator of Destination America’s freshman paranormal offering Ghost Stalkers. The series ended its 6 episode run in November. Still no word on whether the show was picked up for a second season. But Nick is not resting on his laurels. NickGroffTour.com debuted online almost simultaneously as Travel Channel announced his departure.
Two locations are currently scheduled. On February 8, 2015, Nick will be investigating at the infamous Bobby Mackey’s Music World, in Wilder, Kentucky. Ticket sales are brisk. The only remaining options are general admission for $30 or the VIP ticket for $325. The VIP package is truly a celebrity ghost hunting experience. There will be lots of face time with Nick, a full-fledged investigation, plus a bunch of photo opportunities. The general ticket gets you into the Q&A sessions and a photo. There’s a wide range on these prices, so carefully weigh your options.
The second investigation will be held at the Ashmore Estates in Illinois. More ticket options are still available for the April 11, 2015, investigation. View www.nickgrofftour.com for more information as more locations will be added.
Public group tours are popular. Fans yearn for personal investigative experiences with paranormal celebrities. Face time is paramount, and people will pay. Ask Amy Bruni who has also started her own touring company called Strange Escapes, www.strange-escapes.com.
Small group investigations differ from conference sessions. Attendees can see how a paranormal investigator reacts in the field. Numbers are low, so that fewer people can have full access. Evidence is not guaranteed. However, I would venture to guess that the ability to walk side by side, shoulder to shoulder with a celebrity ghost hunter far outweighs the occasional anomalies.
Only adults age 18+ are able to participate in the investigations. However, children may attend the Q&A sessions.
Locations for Nick’s events are more well-known and supposedly haunted. Advertising claims “iconic haunted locations in America.” Seems Nick is off to a good start. Once he gets closer to the Greater Atlanta area, I will venture out and join in on the craze.
Hmmm. One place I would be very wary: Bobby Mackey’s. I’m surprised he’s going back there. He said the place really affected his home w/ stuff following him home. Especially since he has a newborn daughter.
I wish he never left GA. But again 3 Aries don’t mix and they’ve been mixing together for years.
It would be great going on another of the tours with him. I wish him well and hope his show GS gets picked up, but I think for that to be a success (my personal opinion) one guy has to go on that show and Nick needs to be on camea- in the show, doing the investigations.
I do wish he wasn’t going to Mackey’s though. My brother got seriously messed up there.
Nick knows how dangerous that place is especially in the well room.
(My opinion, which doesn’t mean anything) is he should not go back to Mackey’s
Besides that (Mackey’s) Again I wish him all the success he deserves.
My one worry is that people will create rumors and friction between him and the GA guys.
That shouldn’t be.
The whole paranormal community needs to support each other not bash each other. We need to remember many people don’t believe and when they see us bickering and knocking each other it makes all the real evidence, investigators. Investigations, and true experiences seem suspect.
(Sorry for rambling beyond what this article is about) I just really hope there’s not going to be another ridiculous feud- this one being Nick vs Zac & GA.
& I know if there is it will be from the fans, . Not from Nick, Zac, & GA.
I just wish Nick would go back on GA where he belongs.
NOTE: any misspelling in my (large) comment is from the damn auto spell on my jacked up Kindle.
& a warning about Bobby Mackeys… the place is truly dangerous.
So think long and hard if your going to go there. My brothers life turned upside down in a very bad way starting from his experiences there and continuing the early hours he left through months afterword.
But one thing is sure: you will get crazy evidence and even crazier experiences.
Sorry for the looonnnnggg comment.

My Nook likes to hijack my words and change them. I think it’s par for the ebook course.
I wouldn’t investigate at Bobby Mackey’s. I’ve heard things from both sides: lots of activity and no activity. I think it is personal, and I’m not ready at this point in my life to see if anything “like” me.
I believe Nick was the most sensitive to the spirits and the most respectful to them also. It was not just a show to him, he really felt for the spirits. The show won’t last without Nick. We love and support you in all your future plans. Your fan forever!!! And God bless you and your beautiful family!!!
I like nick but I love watching vac. I just hope Aaron will hang in with Zach. I think Aaron makes the show great.
