BOOS CRUISE - 21+ Only

Ghosts, Murders, & Prostitution

(& Liquor)

GRUESOME TRUE STORIES + BOOZE

For your hardcore drinkers, relax. We stop twice, TWICE, for refills.  Think pub crawl meets best friends under the sheets telling ghost stories. Only there are no sheets. And we're just here for the money.  But yeah.  Like that.

On this tour:

  • Several guests have seen the infamous woman in a certain downtown window (ghosts, ya perv, not window peeping)

  • No hype--only fact-based, chilling stories of spirits and death and the skin trade and whatever you'll believe after two drinks
  • Visit one of Salida's original mortuaries (again, Ewwww)

FALL & SPRING SCHEDULE

March, April, September, & October only

8:30 PM ~ $25

2.5 hours

FRIDAY & SATURDAY

Tours are held regardless of the weather.  Please wear appropriate attire.  The tour route goes about 12 blocks. Hats, water, and cameras are highly recommended. 21+ to drink. Alcohol not part of the price.

EASILY UPSET? PLEASE TAKE THE EARLY TOUR

DO NOT TAKE THIS TOUR IF:

  • You are quickly offended (snowflakes & those who are "woke, we're talking to you)

  • You use only sanitized, PC language (cuz 4-letter words & inappropriate comments are kind of a big part of this 21+ tour)

  • Gore and talk of the whore trade is upsetting (this ain't the family-friendly Ghost & Murder Tour)

THIS IS A 21+, UNFILTERED VERSION OF THE EARLY GHOST & MURDER TOUR. IT'S DESIGNED FOR THOSE WHO WANT SOME ADULT FUN. WITH BOOZE. DID WE MENTION THERE IS BOOZE? BECAUSE THERE IS.  SPEAKING OF ALCOHOL--BARS TABS ARE YOUR RESPONSIBILITY. ALCOHOL IS NOT PART OF THE PRICE.

 

Now that the disclaimer is out of the way. This tour includes:

  • Shocking details of Salida's only serial killer​ (a total psycho)

  •  

    The truth of the whore trade in the early days (All we can say here is Ewwwww. Seriously, ew.)

  • We'll visit sites of current ghost hauntings (we have plenty!)

  • Details of a couple of vicious murders 

  • We'll stop for courage juice (liquor, if you're slow to catch on)

5-STAR RATED TOUR

Here is the obligatory insert by the marketing team where they write about how amazing this tour is (it's a total hoot) and how it has received 5-star ratings from guests around-the-world (sometimes we require you to post a positive comment before we'll call a cab (kidding, not kidding, but yes, kidding) and where we tantalize you with a few more facts about what is covered (knowing you really only want an excuse to drink while telling friends you "toured.")

Continuing on this tour...

  • Hear why a man slept on the train tracks, and paid for it dearly​

  •  Hear a spine-tingling, true ghost train story​

  • Learn of Salida's colorful history, including brothels & saloons

  • See the bar where spirits roam daily

  • Drop by the place past employees refuse to return to

  • But, yes, we stop for drinks.  Pinky swear.
