Ghost Adventures Season 7 Q&A with Zak Bagans, Nick Groff, and Aaron Goodwin
Question: I believe you've all been possessed or under the influence of dark energy at least once on the show, do you have a contingency plan in case one of these goes all shiny on the others during a lockdown?
Nick Groff: Film it. Yes, as a good violence - yes - I mean.
Zak Bagans: If one of the guys came at me and started beating me up, I would beat him up.
Aaron Goodwin: Thanks for the heads-up Zak.
Zak Bagans: No I think that, you know, we've come close, you know, as we've laughed at, you know, it is a very serious thing. You know, the most energies that have overtaken me was at Poveglia in Italy and, you know, Aaron and Nick are like family to me and we know - we know when dark energy is affecting us. There's times when I looked at Nick and Aaron and I don't recognize them, I don't know who they are - all I want to do is kill them.
And that most extreme sensation was at Poveglia, Italy and after watching some of the footage, I don't even remember some of it - and all I want to do is harm Aaron, you know, from what I can remember and breaking equipment and punching a concrete wall and it was just - it was amazing that how you just wanted to push that energy out of you. It was just - it wanted to overtake you - it wanted to use your body to do what it only knows, you know, what the current only knows and that flows violence.
And so if that does happen I think that we've all been through it now to where we know the indicators and, you know, as you can see in that moment Nick did help me get out of there. But we know that if that happens, the first thing you do is get out of the area - go outside - the out of the area and go outside.
And it's the Sedansville Rectory that's airing in a couple of weeks - a few weeks, that episode's is the same thing that happened to not us, but some other guy as soon as he - we got him out of the building, it gets lifted immediately. It doesn't mean it goes away, it's just that spirit stays in there - it's like the spirits in the corner (feel) the dreams, they stay where they know they can manifest. You know, but they can still attach themselves to you - that energy can still be residual, that oppression but that's what we do.
Question: Being a cancer researcher and leading a science space team, I'm really interested in the tech gear that you guys are going to be using - can you guys give us a little sneak-peek of some of the new equipment you're using on the upcoming episodes.
Nick Groff: Yes, Bill Chapel he's advanced all the PXs and (nagulous) and he's made it even better, so those are pretty cool. We also got a 3-D map image where you can like scan an area and like if a spirit does show up, it will show an outline of it, which actually we have got an awesome experiment evidence within - what is it, Cripple Creek. And then we got a bunch of new stuff coming out in - well I don't know, what can we say
Zak - can we say all of this?
Zak Bagans: Yes you can say all that stuff, the 3-D Kinect system is really cool.
Nick Groff: And we've got some awesome new shadow detectors and go ahead (Zak) I mean sorry...
Zak Bagans: Yes new (shadow), we got full-spectrum cameras, we've got all kinds of new stuff, so we're constantly evolving just like as technology is, we're trying to keep up with all these new awesome technology and cell phones and iPads and everything like that, you know, they're not the only ones benefiting from the evolution of technology.
We are also updating ourselves constantly and doing this it's connecting us closer with the paranormal as a lot of the paranormal has to do with energy - electricity, energy, which is also having a lot to do with technology. So I think back in the day we weren't advanced enough in the technology department to tap into those frequencies. You know, you think about a cell phone, you can send an image, a video, a picture, you know, through space - to your friend, you know, in Kentucky.
You know, how does that - where does that go to? You know, different radio waves and these different radio waves, these frequencies are similar to how, you know, we believe spirits travel, how spirits speak, how they manifest. You know, we've seen their shadows, how fast they travel - these orbs of lights that are not dust, that are not bugs - these orbs of light, orbs of energy we believe are visual presentation of their energy that makes those goose bumps stand up, that speaks to us.
They can manipulate the environment in different ways, to make words and the technology we're using, we're able to capture these balls of energy. We're able to now, you know, see these images like Cripple Creek, Colorado - an upcoming investigation where we captured an apparition with the help of a skeptic, a scientist. You know, Bill Chapel, he captured it - he was speechless - we've never seen Bill Chapel speechless - ever, so that investigation in Cripple Creek will really challenge any scientist - anybody.
You know, a level of his background, you know, I can't say his background per se because of where he's worked which is confidential where he's worked, just showing you the level of skill that this guy has and what companies he's worked for, to make him speechless from something he captured, is really - we're going up into that level where we really want to, you know, take credit and challenge any scientist out there to prove that those exist. And that $1 million challenge that (James Randy) had, you know, issues is a bunch of BS.
