MANSFIELD, OH (WCMH) — If you’ve ever wanted a chance to learn how to do some ghost hunting, you can now, thanks to a class being offered at the Ohio State Reformatory.
Taught by paranormal investigator Sherri Brake, classes are $115 per person and take place at 1 and 4pm May 19 and Sept. 1.
Students are said to receive hands-on training in professional ghost hunting techniques, including proper protocol; how to use ghost hunting equipment, document evidence and communicate with entities; and local paranormal history and lore.
After the class, the group will return to the Reformatory for a private ghost hunt from 8pm to 2am, allowing newly minted paranormal investigators to test out their newfound skills.
The ghost hunting isn’t allowed for anyone under the age of 13, and the class promises visitors can get up close and personal with the spirits that are believed to haunt the prison’s halls.
Featured in the movie “The Shawshank Redemption” the Ohio State Reformatory is considered one of the most haunted places in American after it closed in 1990.
