Your pre-paid ticket is your reserved space on that date; sorry - we can't hold tickets for you without pre-payment. Because we have finite space on each tour bus, all ticket sales are final. All minor children must have at least one parent or legal guardian with them. No alcohol permitted on the tours. Any person appearing intoxicated will be asked to leave the bus without ticket refund. We ask that babies and toddlers not go on the tour. Ticket holders must be able to climb the four steps on the tour bus. This is an annual event. We have lots of ghost stories to tell this year and a comfortable tour bus with A/C if we need it. For added comfort on the bench-type seats, bring a cushion or a pillow to sit on. I ask you for two favors: 1) Please, please, please - get your tickets on the ticket launch day of August 25th. Don't delay - you may not get a seat if you wait. Every year we have folks who find out about the tour after the tickets are all gone, or have procrastinated. 2) Share this notice with family, friends, neighbors, co-workers and social group members. You can help us get the word out so that everyone who wants to go has a fair chance to get tickets. Thank you. Location to board the bus... The bus will depart from and return to the Indian Village Shopping Center, 13th & Arapahoe. (Private groups renting the entire bus may use a departure location of their choice). The bus will board beginning at 6:45 pm, and the tour will begin promptly at 7 pm and return to the parking lot at approximately 9:20 pm. We stop at the half-way point at a McDonalds for a bathroom break, and folks can get food, soda or coffee at their own expense. We use a modern white passenger bus with a professional driver that seats 50 people and it has A/C if we need it. Tell us your ghost story !... If you"ve had a personal experience in Lincoln, NE, I want to hear your story. Send all personal accounts to: . Your story may be one of the stories we tell on the Ghosts of Lincoln Tour ! Reserve the whole bus for your group? Should you wish to reserve the whole bus for your private group, contact me immediately at 402-770-8604. You may reserve any night that is not a public tour night. We don't do tours on Halloween. We can do a private tour for your group, business or social organization at any time of the year. Thank you !... I'm excited and looking forward to the tours, and seeing our old and new friends. Lots of great stories to share with you - it will be fun and spooky (did I say fun !!!) So join us in October and we will board a bus and drive by some of the alleged haunted houses (and buildings) of Lincoln at night, as I tell stories about ghosts and what people saw. Lots of new Ghost stories plus the best of the old, so even if you've gone on our tours before, you will enjoy them again. Questions? Scott Colborn, 402-770-8604. . Don't delay - you may not get a seat if you wait. Tickets launch on Monday, August 25th ! Boo !
