What did paranormal investigators Zak Bagans and Aaron Goodwin and the rest of the “Ghost Adventures” team find when they explored the ghost town of Goldfield, Arizona? Viewers of the popular Travel Channel show can find out tonight, Jan. 31, when the show airs.

The “Ghost Adventures” crew spent a night locked down in the Goldfield Mine in Goldfield Ghost Town, 4650 N. Mammoth Mine Road in Apache Junction (although promos on the show’s website and Facebook page refer to Apache Junction itself as the ghost town).

According to the website, Zak tests new gas-detecting equipment in the mines, and (cameraman) Jay Wasley “is utterly startled when he sees a man in a trench coat roaming through the town.”

Goldfield Ghost Town Mayor Bob Schoose shares the haunted history of his town and gives the investigators a tour of its grounds as part of the show.

To view promotional videos of the episode, visit the “Ghost Adventures” page on the Travel Channel website and the show’s Facebook page.

The “Ghost Adventures” episode “Apache Junction” will air at 9 p.m. EST Saturday, Jan. 31, on the Travel Channel. Check your local listings for show times.

The Apache Junction Independent is mailed each month to 35,000 homes.
