Paranormal Investigation with the REM-Pod Device

The REM-Pod is one of our Ghost hunting device choices we use here at the Geelong Gaol to capture spirit activity. The REM-Pod emits an ElectroMagnetic field and with its tall antenna therefore detects anything that moves into that field that then sets of the internal devices alarm. We place the RemPod in our field of Investigation; kitchen bench, Stairwells, Surgical table, Morgue Autopsy table to name a few, then if the device is triggered and we (the humans) are not in the vicinity of the device, neither bugs or debris of any kind, then we may class it as paranormal.

Via active Investigation we have had strong spirit evidence in the East Wing stairs where the RemPod alarm is most always triggered by the spirit of a little girl, in a cell on the third level where a convict spirit resides, is triggered in the Condemned Cell near the Gallows trapdoor and many other evidence based captures too.

If you would like to join the team at Twisted History on a Paranormal Investigation tour, we run seven nights a week using various ghost hunting devices. To book call 1300865800.

Sunday Paranormal Spot – K2 EMF Detector

We use the K2 as one of our most popular devices whilst Ghost Hunting to detect any Electro Magnetic Field that may be present, and the varied range of detection tells us how strong the field range is or its intensity. Once turned on the green light will be illuminated then once a EMF detection occurs the light illuminates according to the fields it has detected ranging up to the red 20milligawls of energy; an elecrto magnetic energy phenomena is given off when there is a Spirit around. We as Investigators, walk around with the device in our hand and place the device too on areas of interest: seats, walls, graves, shelves – anywhere we see fit during our investigation, with the hope that a detection will be made. We also call for any Spirits that can hear us to come forward and come close to us and the device and trigger the meter. We can also use this K2 device to actively communicate with us via triggering the device to our line of questioning as an answer to our enquiries. You will also see below we have used the K2 on an experiment in the Dentist Surgery where we have detected spirit and out line of questioning is asking the spirit to choose which substance he/they liked from our display on the floor- in this case Bourbon was chosen by lighting up the K2 which is situated on the left on the picture.

 

Who is brave enough to enter the gates of the Geelong Gaol tonight or tomorrow night. Be guided through the most intact 19th century prison, hearing stories of the prisoner conditions, executions, and of course the ghosts! Perhaps you will be lucky enough to encounter one of our spirits….

Or if the paranormal is more to your liking then join us on an investigation tonight at 9.30pm or tomorrow night at midnight, in search for the evidence that the paranormal truly does exist. Do you have what it takes to become a ghost hunter for the night.

Rug up and join the team at Twisted History on this cold winters night on a Ghost tour or Investigation of the Geelong Gaol or a murder tour of Chinatown.

The Geelong Gaol has seen many people pass through its doors in its 142 year history.  Many of them would call this cold, impenetrable fortress home for a period of time.  Many would never leave it again ….

Chinatown is the oldest Chinese community outside of Asia.  It has been the scene of murders, crime, drugs and prostitution. Hear of Chinatowns links to some if the more infamous events in Victorian history such as the Gun Alley Murder, Eureka Stockade and Jack the Ripper.

For bookings, please call 1300865800

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
