On Halloween, the stars of Eureka Springs’ Intrigue Theater, Sean-Paul and Juliana Fay will be returning to the Crescent Hotel’s Crystal Ballroom for a seance show. This year they will astound their patrons as they witness a seance in an effort to reach some who have “crossed over.” Limited seating!
Eureka Springs Paranormal (ESP) weekend at the 1886 Crescent Hotel has evolved over seven years. What began as an opportunity for paranormal investigation groups to explore the active areas at night for one weekend in January, has grown to a two-weekend, two-hotel investigation – and not only of ghosts.
The phrase Extra Sensory Perception refers to the mysterious powers that some people (and maybe all people) possess, that seem to defy the laws of space, time and even logic.
You will have many opportunities to explore your own psychic abilities at ESP19, our interactive weekends – opportunities to share your experiences, feelings, questions, realizations with other companions on the quest. And at night we will be attempting to communicate with those who linger in this hotel long after their bodies are dead and buried.
America’s Most Haunted tour guides have begun investigation of the Basin Park Hotel in downtown Eureka Springs with a launch of the Spirits of the Basin Tour. Our tour guides run daily investigations of the long rumored spirits within this 1905 landmark hotel that has already uncovered evidence of the paranormal.

“Guests in room 309 reported they awoke at 4am to see a 6 foot tall man wearing boots, spurs, and a duster standing at the foot of their bed.”
“I stopped by my room to put some powder in my shoes. I distinctly remembered the powder being the last thing I packed before leaving my home. However, the powder was nowhere to be found. I left the room to go shopping downtown. I purchased a simple silver ring and placed it on the nightstand along with my watch, glasses and loose change, then went to sleep. The next morning the ring was nowhere to be found. After searching everywhere around the bed and shifting through the luggage items I gave up. I raised my arms up into the air and said aloud, “When you finish playing with the ring, please return it to me.” Two weeks later, while sweeping my home, the ring appeared in the path of the floor that I was sweeping.”
“Last winter I was doing room checks on the second floor, no guests were around. I had checked the north hall and turned the corner into the hall, towards the front of the hotel, when I heard a door slam behind me down the north hall. I checked the hall again but there wasn’t any unlocked doors nor anyone there. I proceeded to the South hall, as I started walking down the hall I heard what sounded like someone jiggling a door knob. This is the only time I have ever been unnerved in the Basin.”
It is important to know that while the America’s most haunted tour guides continue to investigate the Basin Park Hotel, the spirits tour covers more than just the ghostly experiences. The tour captures all of the history and colorful characters who stayed, worked and died at the 1905 historic property. Tours are Tuesday–Sunday throughout the year (tours will only be offered Th-Sun from 8/16-9/6)– inviting guest to explore the legendary Basin Park Hotel, from the Crow’s Nest to the underground cave, and experience the spirits – living, dead and 92 proof .
