1886 Crescent Hotel Becomes More “Intriguing” On Halloween Night
As if the 1886 Crescent Hotel & Spa wasn’t intriguing enough on Halloween, Sean-Paul and Juliane Fay, the headliners of Intrigue Theater, will return for the third consecutive year to this historic hotel’s Crystal Ballroom on October 31. The 2-hour performance begins at 10:00 p.m. with seating at 9:30 p.m.
This special performance opens with nationally acclaimed illusionist Sean-Paul opening his antiquarian doctor’s bag and sharing some of the newest mysteries from Intrigue Theater. This will be followed by Juliane Fay, a medium of highly respected repute, who will call upon the energies of the spirits said to be residing in the hotel during a séance. Randomly selected members of the audience will be invited to the stage and a seat at the séance table to assist in reaching back to and communicating with “those who have crossed over”.
Intrigue Theater has created a new segment based on the disturbing accounts of Norman Baker performing autopsies in the Morgue. Sean-Paul will extract tumors from an audience member with his bare hands using only Hypnosis to eliminate the sense of pain. This will be a one time performance to offer glimpse into what might have happened in the basement of the Crescent during its days as a Cancer Hospital. It will only be performed on HALLOWEEN NIGHT – at the Haunted Crescent Hotel.
This a once-a-year performance has completely sold out by early October in years past, so those interested in attending should secure tickets early. It is an adjunct to the numerous Crescent Hotel ghost tours that will be conducted day and night on Halloween.
Every night of the year, dozens of different people wind their way down the hallways and open, serpentine staircases of the five-story 1886 Crescent Hotel & Spa, “America’s Most Haunted Hotel”. Final destination: the hotel’s “morgue”. They just know they are strolling amidst what some would say are hundreds of spirits who still frequent this Historic Hotel of America located here atop Crescent Mountain. Each tour patron is eager to see something, feel something, smell something that they would categorize as a ghostlike experience enabling them to share that close encounter with their world. However, several of those strolling along those same paranormal pathways have been there before, every night of the year. These are the stalwart souls known as the Crescent Hotel Ghost Tour Guides.

Pam and I had several experiences there while on tour.
My first encounter with a ghost occurred in orientation. Sitting in the middle of my Mom and girlfriend. I distinctly remember two quick tugging pulls on my ear lobe. To the effect that I asked my Mom on that side if she tugged my ear. She said no; it was apparent she was listening to the guide. I turned to my girlfriend on the other side and asked her if she reached around and pull my ear as a joke. She said “Why would I do that?”. I was so perplexed that I turned to the lady behind me and asked her if she pulled my ear. She answered that she was not in the habit of pulling strangers ears. I was not yet sure of what had happened.
It was only later when the guide mentioned a little girl who poked people that I made the connection to something truly strange. For the next few weeks as I stayed at my Mom’s, back in Utah, I would often hear a little girl happily calling Daddy. My feeling as if she was happy I had come back. It was a strange period of time after that I would awake at night and hear a little girls voice calling out to me.
I have had supernatural encounters in the past. This one is one of the most livid.
