Travel Channel Kicks Off Season Six of "Ghost Adventures" with Visit to Shanghai Tunnels on Friday, March 9‏


Travel Channel returns with season six of the popular paranormal travel series, “Ghost Adventures” on Friday, March 9 at 9:00 p.m., ET/PT.  Investigative duo, Zak Bagans and Nick Groff, along with equipment technician Aaron Goodwin, explore some of the most haunted locations in America to unearth the trapped souls and dark energy within.  This season, the team visits spots that have never been explored by the Ghost Adventures team including the Shanghai Tunnels in Portland, OR, the Peabody-Whitehead Mansion in Denver, CO, as well as the family home of paranormal equipment inventor Gary Galka in East Granby, CT, where business gets personal as they help one family make contact with their dead daughter in a deeply personal story of love, loss and a haunted house.  Each of the seven, one-hour episodes starts with an in-depth profile of a location’s haunted past.  Once the story is told, viewers follow the investigative team as they survey every nook and cranny while conducting scientific experiments while being locked down overnight.

The new season kicks off with the trio taking a deep dive into the dingy Shanghai Tunnels to unearth the spirits that still haunt Hobo’s Restaurant & Lounge in Portland, Oregon.  They meet Shanghai Tunnels curator, Michael Jones, who gives insight on the tragic history of these passageways.  In the 1850’s, Portland sent many ships across the Pacific to trade goods.  In order to man the ships with an adequate crew, people were “shanghaied,” or kidnapped and sold illegally to trading ships.  The tunnels were used to hold them and later transport them to the harbors.  Andrew Guthrie, owner of Hobo’s, shows the Ghost Adventures team the trap doors that were once used to trick unsuspecting locals into the tunnels.  One of the most tragic stories involves the legend of Nina, a former prostitute who knew about the horrors of the underground.  Nina shared these stories with a local missionary, and they in turn went to the cops.  The next day, she was found dead at the bottom of an elevator shaft.

The Ghost Adventures team begins their lockdown inside the Shanghai Tunnels at dawn.  They descend into the dark tunnels, and their equipment starts to record audio of a female voice.  Zak first believes this voice is Nina’s spirit, but after he probes further, it seems to be one of a different prostitute.  Then, they record audio of a male that accompanies the initial female voice.  Later on, a door rattles unprovoked.  As Zak, Nick and Aaron further investigate, they hear phantom footsteps.  Meanwhile, one of the static cameras record visual evidence of an unexplained mist.  Finally, the guys split up across the tunnels.  Zak captures an anomaly in his thermal imaging camera moving towards Aaron in the next room over.
