ORBS Paranormal Investigation at the
Mad River & NKP Railroad Museum

October 21 at 7 PM to October 22 at 3 AM


Join us on Oct. 21 for the 6th straight year as The Ohio Researchers of Banded Spirits (O.R.B.S.) conducts a paranormal investigation at The Mad River & NKP Railroad Museum.

O.R.B.S. is a locally based but nationally prominent paranormal team that has been featured on Animal Planet's "The Haunted", History Channel's "My Ghost Story" and "Haunted History" and Destination America's "Paranormal Survivor" and coming this fall "Haunted Case Files."

This fundraising event will begin at 7:00pm. You will learn about the different methods and equipment that will be used in the night's investigation and then be divided into investigative teams spreading throughout the grounds, buildings and railcars of the museum. The groups will rotate through all areas before the investigation is over.

The Mad River & NKP Museum is located at 253 Southwest Street, just 2 blocks south of Rt. 20 in Bellevue. Tickets for this event are $25 per person and space is limited so reserve your spot now.

The O.R.B.S. Team generously donates their time and all proceeds for this event. They will be used for the restoration on the "Silver Dome", the very first glass-topped dome car.

While the investigation will begin at 7:00, it's ending is determined by your stamina and the level of activity experienced. The last die-hard investigators wrapped things up last year at about 3:30 am! We will have coffee, water and light snacks to keep your going throughout the evening and early morning hours.

Join us for this exciting and unique way to support our museum.

Call our reservation line at 567-228-9866 to reserve your spot.

Call early as this is a very popular event.
