Have the thrill of your life as you ride in a real, haunted 1972 Cadillac hearse to the actual places where some of Western North Carolina’s most frightening ghost stories occurred.
Investigators of the paranormal and historic ghost sites will love this tour through one of Asheville’s most haunted yet eerily beautiful graveyards.
Tours through Riverside Cemetery occur before the setting of the sun since the gates of this historic graveyard close at dusk each day. We all love a good, spooky time in a boneyard, but we wouldn’t want you to be trapped in there overnight! Or would we…?
In addition to seeing the graves of two famous writers, Thomas Wolfe and O. Henry, you will enjoy hearing your host Virgil Nightshade spin his original tales of terror inspired by the creepy crypts and terrifying tombstones of this hauntingly beautiful cemetery.
All scheduled tours depart from and return to The Conundrum, an escape room and speakeasy lounge, at 1 Battle Square in downtown Asheville.
PLEASE NOTE: Our tours run on a tight schedule, so it is imperative that our guests not be late for our departure time. We cannot refund payment for guests who arrive late for their tour.
We don’t have a minimum age requirement, but you should be aware that the tours will get rather intense at times. If your children can handle live scary Halloween attractions, they should be fine. If your child is easily frightened and prone to screaming and crying, it might be best to wait a year or two. But don’t get us wrong. We love little children. Especially for dessert.
While we welcome everyone to participate in this experience, we are not able to assist those who cannot board the hearse under their own power. If you or someone in your party wishes to manage this situation, you are welcome to do so, but we assume no liability for problems that might ensue.
