Well, if you watched Ghost Adventures on Friday, you saw they investigated the fort. And they did find paranormal activity.
The best footage was what appeared to be a lantern being lit on the ramparts. I’ve heard the rumors about the lantern man before, so it was neat to see them capture something that backed up the many claims surrounding that strangeness.
THE POWDER MAGAZINE
I was surprised there was no mention of the woman ghost rumored to haunt the Powder Magazine though. I’ve toured the Castillo de San Marcos three times. Every time I heard the story about the officer’s wife who fell in love with another soldier, had an affair with him, her husband found out and shut her away in the Powder Magazine where she ultimately died. I heard it from 3 different tour guides too, so I was surprised that wasn’t brought up for Zak and his team.
They also used a new piece of equipment I don’t recall seeing on any of their other shows before. I forget what they called it, but it reminded me a lot of the Telephone to the Dead. Except the GAC’s was smaller and also had these goggles Zak could wear.
They also explained how it worked, but I got confused. Something about it picked up activity and then translated it…the thing did “speak” a couple of times. I’m not sure if I quite buy this gadget…mainly because I just don’t understand how it works.
But if it’s real…wow. Then it’s got a lot of possibilities.
They also have this thing they call an EMF Pump. Basically it’s like a battery that generates EMF energy to “feed” ghosts so they can manifest.
Now that’s something that seems pretty useful. I’m curious if it helps save the battery juice of other investigative equipment like cameras, digital recorders, etc. that often get drained when ghosts are suspected of trying to manifest. Maybe we’ll find out on future shows.
