How are you spending your Friday the 13th this week?  Why not join us on a ghost tour of the Geelong Gaol or perhaps, if you are brave enough, a Deadtime tour starting at midnight!  For more information and bookings, call 1300865800.

But as for Friday the 13th …….

The fear of the number 13 has been given a scientific name: “triskaidekaphobia”; and on analogy to this the fear of Friday the 13th is called paraskevidekatriaphobia, from the Greek words Paraskeví (meaning “Friday”), and dekatreís (meaning “thirteen”).

The superstition surrounding this day may have arisen in the Middle Ages, “originating from the story of Jesus’ last supper and crucifixion” in which there were 13 individuals present in the Upper Room on the 13th of Nisan Maundy Thursday, the night before his death on Good Friday.  While there is evidence of both Friday and the number 13 being considered unlucky, there is no record of the two items being referred to as especially unlucky in conjunction before the 19th century

 

Have you ever wanted to search for your own evidence that paranormal truly exists? We have a small number of places on a 9.30pm investigation tonight.

Why not join us behind the walls of the Old Geelong Gaol with one of our experienced investigators, as they guide you to the “hotspots”. On this tour you will use a range of equipment to attempt to gather proof of the paranormal.

These investigations run 7 nights a week, check our website for times and our extended investigations on a Deadtime Tour or Lockdown.

Call 1300865800 for more information and bookings
