  • 4.5 is what I'd like to rate rolling hills asylum but google won't let me. We went on our annual columbus day weekend haunted trip to Rolling Hills Asylum this year. On our four hour journey to RHA, i was pulled over for going 83 in a rental that had and the officer was so nice and let me go....i wasnt used to the car yet as the speedometer was in a weird location ...and then we stopped briefly at Split Rock Quarry's rock crusher... apparently the grounds are said to be haunted due to a TNT explosion which killed at least 50 people in the early 1900s. (no results of supernatural activity.) We continued on for the rest of the trip to RHA. Upon arrival the building looked very small compared to several locations i have been to. But i was not disappointed at all. After parking we all walked up to the ramp where everyone is supposed to meet..after a few minutes Sharon came out and asked us to all go to our cars as there was a smell of smoke in the building and the fire company had to come and check it out before we could enter the facility. It was around 6:30 when we entered the building now this is why i could not give it a solid 5, it was a bit chaotic in the beginning getting in and completing forms and after a brief speech from Sharon involving the history of the facility we were off in two separate groups touring some of the rooms in the building. However i did not like how we all had to gather with a large group in some very small rooms..the other aspects which gave this a 4.5...going back to the chaos part..it had continued throughout the guided tour..groups were in rooms that i guess we were supposed to stop at...which caused confusion along the tour i still chalk these things up to the smoke issue...as having a delayed start of the tour to begin with throws everything off. I also felt like the tour was a bit long especially for a three hour long ghost hunt....short and brief is probably the best way to go with a ghost hunt tour. Our tour guides were great...even the staff in the green room and throughout the halls and rooms were great! ( i was nervous after reading some negative reviews) Now as i have my own equipment that i like to use...i will admit that i never received any validated responses from EMF any timei had used it. We had wandered the halls and various rooms for a bit...used my IR camcorder along with my digital camera, cell phone camera, and digital camcorder and did not catch any visible evidence. FYI i am a skeptic, but would like to have proof to verify belief. If a door creaked or a window slammed id say it was a draft..if my personal items were misplaced id figue that i did it without realizing it. If a glass flew across the room..i can't say that i could explain that. Now back to the asylum. We had decided to go to George's room. I certainly was not expecting for my EMF reader to peak like crazy. When we walked in it was almost instantly that we decided to set up our gear and see what happens. RHA encourages you to sit on his bed as George does not like that. After scanning the room for activity and finding nothing i set the EMF reader on the bed and sat next to it. We set the IR camera up to watch the EMF spikes...then we set the EVP reader to record. Suddenly a spike and then another and then it went crazy. We were communicating with George! I had asked if he was happy..the beeps on the EMF respoded like a knock (the one that sounds like knock-knock-knocknockknock-knock-knock) it was so awesome. Now i didn't check under the bed to see if there was any instruments that could cause my EMF reader to respond like that but it like to assume there wasn't. also note that the EMF reader was responding to my questions for a little over three minutes and briefly after. Remember im a skeptic...but i didn't feel scared or at peace or anything. ..i guess i was neutral the whole time i was there. But if this was indeed real...i have the recording and witnesses to prove it. On the way home we hit up 13 curves on Cedarvale road in Syracuse. (Negative activity)
  • I was so upset... we drove 5 hours and the tour was fast and speedy and they didnt like to answer questions save your money runn!!!!! Scam alert!!!
  • This building has a very interesting history. It's also a great place to run into a few ghosts!
  • Went here the other night with my boyfriend for our anniversary. The tour was very informative and we got an idea of what to expect out of our evening. This was our first time in a haunted place and we can say for sure this place is haunted! We purchased equipment for the second half of our hunt and the staff were very helpful in showing us the proper way to use the new equipment. We had an amazing experience and got some great evidence. This is an anniversary we will never forget and we can't wait to come back!
  • i dont hate the actual experience, but i hate the insensitivity of the owner. the refund policy is nill. i know the it says it plain and simple, but each circumstance is different. i purchased two tickets ans a week and a half prior to the date, my father suffered a heart attack and had to have triple bypass. sharon refused to refund or even comp the tickets for another time. we all know she could have rebooked somebody else and had no loss, but she probably rebooked somebody else and made an additional 80 bucks. i will never return and will make it a mission to spread her inconsiderate, insensitive personality, along with unscrupulous business tactics.
