Great experience. Would recommend.
, Jul. 2021
Not sure what to expect after mixed reviews. Was not disappointed, the guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the prison. We had a great time using the detection equipment as well. Great activity inside of the new area with orb activity viewed on our phone and to the naked eye. Would definitely recommend a visit. If you’re just going there for ghost hunting you’ll be disappointed because that only happens twice during the two hour tour. But if you enjoy the history side then it’s great value for money. One suggestion would be to spend a bit longer in the new section and use a range of the detection equipment, but that’s my only suggestion.

Our guide was excellent. Really enjoyed reading the stories of individual prisoners on the cell walls! Lots of interesting facts and there’s no doubt it’s a legitimately spooky site… with last night’s wet and windy weather it was the perfect atmosphere 👌🏼 Would definitely recommend this tour!

It was ok, more like a tour . Have been on a few and thought it could have been directed more at the ghost side and more stories told

What a great tour. It was...

What a great tour. It was informative and very entertaining. Our two guides were great and our small group were open-minded. We had two opportunity for a paranormal encounter. All equipment needed was provided. The only change I would recommend was to include a hotel pick-up in the package for a small fee. As I was travelling with a group that did not drive, getting to and from the gaol especially late at night was difficult and we had to get a taxi. I believe offering this option would greatly improve the experience.
