Welcome to Tombstone, Arizona

Zak Bagans and the Ghost Adventures crew descend upon the historic city of Tombstone, AZ — known as "the Town Too Tough to Die" — to reopen their investigation at the famous Bird Cage Theatre.

Bird Cage Theatre

Established in 1881, the Bird Cage Theatre was named for the "cages" that hung from the ceiling, in which prostitutes would entertain their clients. One of the more popular institutions in Tombstone, the theater was frequented by the wildest bunch in town. More than 100 bullet holes can still be seen in the walls today. The theater was also a brothel, saloon and gambling hall.

Tombstone's Hearse

The Black Moriah was the official hearse of Tombstone, and as you can imagine, it was used quite often. According to Tombstone tour guides, the Black Moriah was the first vehicle to have curved glass. The hearse can be seen in the Bird Cage Theatre.

Big Nose Kate's Saloon

Formerly the Grand Hotel, Big Nose Kate's Saloon was a well-known bordello in the 1880s, operated by Doc Holliday’s longtime mistress, "Big Nose Kate." During the Grand Hotel days, it served as a place of rest for Doc, as well as Wyatt and Virgil Earp.

The Shaft

The Shaft is accessible via the spiral staircase that leads to the basement of Big Nose Kate's Saloon. Back when the building was the Grand Hotel, a swamper worked tirelessly to access the silver mine shafts beneath the hotel. The entry point to the mine shaft can still be seen today.
