My eyebrows litterally moved when I saw this article.
The link is here : Mystery at the asylum
It starts badly for them ‘Hunted Auckland”……..
Ghostly figures in photographs, batteries that die suddenly and slamming doors are just a few of the spooky activities occurring at Asylum Paintball.
Owners Vitaly Miheer and Anton Klimenko were worried enough to get Haunted Auckland in for a look at their business premises in the former Kingseat Hospital.
The paranormal investigation and research group is now making a documentary on its three-part investigation.
Asylum Paintball was set up last November in the former psychiatric hospital‘s maximum security ward.
It’s a creepy place, with a past that plays to your lizard brain, the builsings all brick and imposing, trees. It’s deserted, it’s a long way from anywhere. It is spooky. In fact there is a theme entertainment there called, oddly, Spookers. They have lots of actors in dress up Zombie clothes, blood make-up, and themed rooms of things like mad old mental women, spiders, surgery rooms etc. Again Lizard brain loves this stuff.
Its two two-storey buildings have 20 rooms and are connected by a steel-caged security tunnel. They were locked up for 20 years before the paintball enthusiasts moved in.
Then the science kicks in ………
Haunted Auckland’s team members arm themselves with electromagnetic field metres, camera and torches to document the paranormal or allay people’s fears by explaining the seemingly inexplicable.
electromagnetic field metres – say what they measure is distance….
They found “energy” in many areas of the maximum security units at Kingseat. The eastern wing and the caged walkways in particular had levels that were unexplainable.
Haunted Auckland founder Mark Wallbank says he was standing outside one of the cell doors and saw a shadow move quickly across the wall.
“It was roughly the shape of a person but I didn’t notice any arms or legs moving. It just floated from left to right,” he says.
Science again ….
Investigators also recorded something that sounded like a man laughing and a number of other strange sounds.
They don’t mention EVP recordings?
So more science ….
“It was everything I could’ve hoped for in an investigation location – soaked in history, rot and decay, signs of the past everywhere, no power, dark corridors, creepy stairwells,” Wallbank says.
He won’t go so far as to say there are ghosts in the building “but we know something is out there”. “We need to learn more about it to understand and that’s why we do these investigations.”
Got to be wary of “creepy stairwells”
Back to the Science …
Meanwhile, the strange incidents continue.
“Batteries on our cameras suddenly run out of power. Yet away from the building they last for hours,” Miheer says.
Eyebrows doing the full disco tango now, and then a bombshell revelation …
The pair found a key in an old medical box on the windowsill and discovered it opened every door in both buildings.
They found a key to open the doors, every door, which sounds as dubious as it sounds. It was a lock-down facility, each cell would have the same lock, you then have one key per nurse/guard/doctor it isn’t a mystery.
Then there is the nonsense that you have to put in to justify yourself
Miheer says he’s also captured a shadow figure in a photograph.
“This place may well have something,” he says.
“It certainly has a very special energy. There is some sort of feeling that I just want to stay away.”
Lizard brain clicks into gear…
