This spooky attraction is not new to Laramie; Ghost Tours of Laramie has been scaring us for 14 years. The tour has even won several awards in the region. According to Janine Bangerter, a manager of the attraction, it won Best Haunted Attraction in this region. Janine also tells me that just a few years ago the tour even won a prestigious award for Best Haunted Attraction in Better Homes and Gardens magazine.

What makes it unique?

You may be wondering what makes this haunted attraction stand out from the rest. I was skeptical at the uniqueness of the ghost tour, but Janine sold me on it. She tells me that this tour is not your typical haunted house kind of attraction; it is a unique haunted tour that highlights our local history, while telling true, documented ghost stories. These ghost stories mainly tell of haunts and ghouls in Laramie and Wyoming, but they also include an array of ghost stories from around the world.

Other haunts

Laramie has other spooky places to offer if you’d rather explore yourself. The Laramie Plains Civic Center is said to be haunted by many spirits. There have been countless stories of disembodied voices, footsteps and other strange noises that

can be heard after dark. According to Shadowlands.com the Prep school in Laramie has also had numerous reports of haunted activity. There have been reports of locker doors slamming, the feeling that you are being watched in the library and the feeling of a presence in the girls bathroom on the second floor. All of these places would be fun for exploring on a dark Halloween night!
