'Ghost Adventures' Investigates Melrose Hotel, Binion's Hotel And Casino
Ghost Adventures has returned for its latest run on the Travel Channel. The paranormal investigative reality TV show, which stars ghost hunter Zak Bagans and Aaron Goodwin, looks into locations reputed or reported to be haunted.
The most recent episode of Ghost Adventures premiered last February with a story on the Lutes Casino. The next episodes will have Bagan and his team checking out the Melrose Hotel in Grand Junction, Colorado and the Binion's Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Melrose Hotel owner Joya De Pasquale told KKCO11 that they got a call from the producers of Ghost Adventures about investigating the site. Melrose Hotel apparently has dark spirits that haunt just the male guests and the team wants to know the reason behind it.
De Pasquale, who has owned the property for over 20 years, said that he's not afraid of the ghosts of Melrose Hotel. In fact, he gets along with them and honors their presence.
Before De Pasquale became the owner, Melrose Hotel belonged to the couple Marcus and Sabrina Bebb-Jones, who bought the site from the family of James Ponsford. The latter established the Melrose Hotel in 1908.
But the Bebb-Jones couple had an unfortunate history with Sabrina's disappearance. Twenty years later, however, her husband was tried for her murder. De Pasquale solidly believes her ghost never had peace, which is why she has been making her presence felt to the guests.
Ghost Adventure will air the Melrose Hotel episode on Saturday, March 16, at 9:00 p.m. It will re-air this installment on Sunday, March 17, Friday, March 22, and Saturday, March 23. Check out the time schedules on the Travel Channel.
Meanwhile, the following Saturday, March 23, Ghost Adventure will head to Las Vegas to investigate another paranormal activity at the historic Binion's Hotel and Casino. This large property with over 300 rooms has been an abandoned site since 2009.
Bagans and his team described the Binion's Hotel and Casino as a "paranormal pressure cooker just waiting to explode." Their visit comes as its operators are expected to open a new hotel near the haunted site in the summer. However, there have already been many reports of unusual activity, which has the management feeling the nerves.
This Ghost Adventure episode featuring Binion's Hotel and Casino will also air on Sunday, March 24, Friday, March 29, and Saturday, March 30. The time schedules for these broadcasts are between 12 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. Look up the exact listing of Ghost Adventure on Travel Channel.
