Ghost Hunters: Titanic Terror

I recently started watching Ghost Hunters, but there are so many episodes that I decided to just watch the ones that are about places I've visited or are just interested in.  Since I went to the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta few years ago, I thought the Season 5 episode where the TAPS (The Atlantic Paranormal Society) team investigates paranormal activity in the aquarium's Titanic exhibit would be pretty interesting...and it was!  The exhibit is a traveling one, and paranormal activity seems to follow it wherever it goes...people have reported seeing shadows while in the exhibit, hearing footsteps, and feeling fingers scape their scalps.  Jason Hawes, Grant Wilson, and Steve Gonsalves meet with Meghann Gibbons, Director of Public Relations, as soon as they arrive at the aquarium, and she tells them that many of the aquarium's volunteers have reported strange occurences in the Titanic exhibit.  For example, volunteer Margaret Mourino sensed a presence behind her in the iceberg exhibit, then felt something pressing on her scalp. 

Jason and Grant begin the investigation in the cabins exhibit, where they see shadows and experience a sudden drop in temperature; when they move to the iceberg exhibit, they encounter a five-foot tall cold spot, and Jason feels something tugging his sweatshirt.  They soon move to the artifacts room, where Grant sees a shadow he thinks is Jason, but when he sees  the beam of Jason's flashlight in another room, he realizes that he was mistaken.  When Jason joins him, he also sees the figure and chases it, but no one is there.  When the men get up to leave, Grant feels a hand on his shoulder, pushing him back down.  Dave Tango and Steve review the footage and hear a voice during the part of the recording where Jason and Grant ask the presence to knock twice if it wants them to leave; it sounds like the voice is saying "No, please wait."

This episode wasn't too creepy, but I'm glad that the Titanic exhibit was not at the aquarium when I visited...and if I'm ever thinking about going to an aquarium and then find out that they have the Titanic exhibit, I won't be going there. : )

My rating: 8/10
