Fort Knox will be closing for the season at the end of October. One more Ghost Tour is on the schedule this season.

It's been an exciting season of ghost hunts at Fort Knox in Prospect. The popular monthly Ghost Tours have sold out every month. Paranormal enthusiasts have flocked to the haunted fort in search of evidence from beyond. The tours have exploded in demand after the fort's hauntings were recently featured on the paranormal investigation show, Destination Fear. The episode aired back in August and is currently streaming on Discovery +.

One more tour is on the books for the season, scheduled for October 2. The night of ghost hunting is guided by 207 Paranormal. Paranormal investigators will guide participants to the fort's ghostly hot spots, and provide all the ghost hunting equipment. Tickets are on sale now. Tickets must be purchased in advance. All of the money from ticket sales goes directly to Fort Knox.

The Ghost Tours have helped lessen the financial blow the fort has taken after the cancelation of Fright at the Fort. The three-weekend event is Fort Knox's biggest annual fundraiser. Roughly 10,000 visitors visit the spooky attraction each year. The 2018 Stephen King theme brought in a record-setting 15,050 visitors over the five Fright nights. The Friends of Fort Knox hope to bring the event back in October 2022.
