Plenty of people out there believe in an afterlife, and most of those people might also believe in ghosts. After all, think of all the sightings of spirits and spectres which have been diligently recorded over the years by paranormal investigators and mediums around the world. Now personally, I don't believe in ghosts 100 per cent myself. I think that most ghost sightings and purported hauntings are more the result of overactive imaginations and tricks of the light.
However; would I be willing to put that conviction to the test, and spend a dark and foggy night somewhere cold and creepy? Absolutely not. I might be a sceptic, but I'm not stupid either, and if there really are otherworldly forces lurking around out there, that I for one don't want to get on the wrong side of them. However, my opinion might well change if, for example, someone was to pay me a whopping great sum of cash to stay somewhere that might be ... well that might change my mind.
So if you want the opportunity to possibly see a ghost in the flesh (or not as the case may be) then look no further than the following offer, which comes courtesy of local service provider Bark.com, which is going to pay five lucky (or unlucky, depending on your perspective) people a total of $260.00 to spend a night with a real-life paranormal investigator at a ghost-filled graveyard. You might be lucky and see nothing, or you could be hounded by poltergeists until dawn breaks. You'll never know until you give it a go.
There are some rules and guidelines to bear in mind before you sign up and build yourself a makeshift proton pack. First of all, participants are required to spend a full night within the confines of the graveyard, without leaving once. No matter what happens, no matter how spooked you get, you can't venture out of the graveyard and still expect to claim your dough at the end of the whole ordeal. You'll also be required to "perform rituals throughout the night" and help out with the paranormal investigation, although Bark hasn't specified what this entails. You also have to send them some detailed background information regarding your childhood, family history and any tragedies prior tragedies which may have occurred in the course of your life.
Kai Feller, the co-founder of Bark.com, has recently stated: "Halloween is a strange time of year, and I’m not sure people are going to be jumping at the opportunity to spend it in a graveyard. We’re excited to see if anyone actually puts themselves forward for this." Hmm, I notice that Kai himself isn't interested in camping out in the cemetery himself. Maybe he knows something we don't? Who knows? Frankly, it all sounds a bit too eerie for me, but if you'd like to sign up to this immersive Halloween experience then check out the following link for more details.
