Looking for fun things to do in Asheville, NC? Do you like a good scare? You’ve experienced haunted houses, scary ghost stories, spooky graveyards, ghost tours, and haunted attractions of all kinds. But just imagine having ALL of those creepy things rolled into ONE experience!

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.

It’s a haunted house on wheels!

The Haunted Graveyard Tour:
Tours through Riverside Cemetery generally 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.

Don't see an availability for the night you'd like? If you have a party of three or more, call to see if we might be able to add a tour just for you!

Spirits on the River Tour:
Near the campus of the University of North Carolina at Asheville and its hauntingly beautiful botanical gardens situated near the French Broad, sad spirits of the Civil War era mingle with other ghosts whose lurid stories appeared more recently in Asheville’s local newspaper.

Perhaps you’ll also see the ghost of the mysterious woman in white who glides from the steps of the Church of the Redeemer into the river on moonlit nights or the restless spirits of past prisoners and guards who once walked the grounds of one of North Carolina’s scariest prisons.

But be forewarned! Sometimes the subjects of these stories find a way to manifest themselves inside the hearse!

Halloween in the Graveyard:
Join us in our haunted hearse on this tour for tricks AND treats as we spend the twilight hours in the beautiful but haunted Riverside Cemetery. This special Halloween trip includes new creepy music videos and short horror films, spine-chilling stories told by Virgil Nightshade, and an opportunity to communicate with the spirits as we hunt for ghosts on this scariest of nights!

We will provide the treats to satisfy your sweet tooth, but feel free to bring your own beverage, or one of Asheville's many amazing brews from the Conundrum's speakeasy lounge—but remember…all alcoholic beverages must be opened and consumed in the hearse.

Haunted Halloween Ride:
This special edition of our Spirits on the River tour features Lenore, our haunted hearse, as usual, but on this creepiest of nights we have added new Halloween-themed music videos and short horror films to the experience. We also will give you the chance to interact with the ghostly apparitions we encounter in our quest for spirits. On November 1st you will be telling your friends about your first-hand spooky experience from this unique Halloween ride!

We will provide the treats to satisfy your sweet tooth, but feel free to bring your own beverage, or one of Asheville's many amazing brews from the Conundrum's speakeasy lounge—but remember…all alcoholic beverages must be opened and consumed in the hearse.
