I recently took my 14 year old granddaughter and two of her friends to do the two hour guided tour of Waverly. You do have to make reservations in advance and your money will not be refunded. So make sure you can make the time and date. Our tour began at 8pm on Saturday night. The guide had been doing these tours for several years and had several paranormal experiences. Our group was large (about 20+people). In order to have the best experience the group needs to be quite,so you will "feel" the presence of the people. Our group had a few chatty Cathys but for the most part people were cooperative.The history of the sanatorium is explained as you are touring as well as some of the experiences people have had while there. The girls saw "shadow people" , but for the most part nothing extraodrinary happened.Be aware that you are touring in the dark. You may use your flashlights when in the stairwells. So if you don't like dark places, this is not for you.Overall, I think it is very interesing experience ,and one that I would do agian. I do think the experence would be much better if the groups could be smaller. It was diffficult to spend much time in certain places because of the group size. You have to cover 5 floors in two hours. Bring a flashlight, comfortabe walking shoes,and dress weather appropriate. There is not heat or air and most windows have no glass.
