Park City Ghost Tours

Park City Ghost Tours, Ghost Stories, Park City, UtahHear about Lizzy… the ghost that lives at the Imperial Hotel. Her husband shot her and her boyfriend as they lay sleeping in bed. (She likes men with beards!)

Learn about the Miner who fell down the mine shaft losing every limb on the 600 foot fall. (His favorite bar with the Alamo and he can still be seen drinking there today.)

Park City Ghost Tours reflects years of research into the colorful past of Park City. Originally a mining outpost, most people in Utah considered Park City “Sin City”.

With mining came hard drinking, gambling and brothels. And with this… came accidents, mysterious unexplained deaths and MURDER!

We believe that ghosts are real. Ask anyone who has encountered Park City’s ghosts and they will agree.  MOST of them are harmless.

A 70-minute ghost tour of downtown historic Park City will give you, your friends and your family lots to talk about. What else are you going to do? Drink? Well there’s plenty of time for that. After your bike ride, hike or shopping spree, give yourself a fright of a lifetime with these real-life stories of Park City.

Tours operate every day (rain or shine) at 7 pm
Meet at Miner’s Park Main Street in Park City. Each walking tour is 70 minutes.
