Haunted Segway Tour Groupon is NOT the REAL Greenville Ghost Tour

WARNING: If you want the REAL Greenville Ghost Tour it ain’t on an overpriced segway ride! Why waste $65 on a haunted segway tour of old dusty myths and legends when you can enjoy the REAL, ORIGINAL Greenville Ghost Tour for a mere $20? You got had! My fans have been calling ME asking what the deal is…Here is the deal…

Now the Greenville Glides segway tour company could have called me to partner with the real deal and been able to have an amazing offering… but they didn’t! The Greenville segway haunted tour IS NOT authorized to tell our stories nor does it have anything to do with the ORIGINAL Greenville Ghost Tour. They do not hunt ghosts nor do they have any paranormal evidence… just dusty old myths lol.

Don’ fall for the groupon deal on the overpriced segway ride… if you did.. ASK FOR A REFUND! The only place to get the REAL haunted tour of downtown Greenville haunted places is from paranormal expert Jason Profit… I am the guy who actually investigates the haunted locations downtown Greenville and guides the Original Greenville Ghost Tour downtown. Oh yeah and I WROTE THE BOOK about Greenville, SC hauntings. So make sure you don’t get ripped off… There is only ONE Greenville Ghost Tour!

If you got the haunted segway tour groupon… feel free to ask groupon for a refund and come on the REAL haunted tour where the paranormal activity runs high and we know the REAL hotspots where cameras capture orbs, apparitions, mists and learn about how our guests regularly experience the paranormal happenings of downtown. Plus did I mention it is just $20???

Greenville Ghost Tour is the original haunted tour and the ONLY haunted attraction open all year long in Greenville, SC! We have the years of press and media coverage to prove it!

For Halloween Season we also have an all night ghost hunting adventure on Halloween night where you get to be locked into one of the places featured in my book Haunted Greenville South Carolina… Also our Haunted Pub Crawl has new creepy info on the last remaining old brothel downtown Gvegas… We also have an exclusive LATE Tour where you learn the dark side of Greenville’s haunted places, grizzly crimes and suicides… the LATE tour ends where 10,000 souls rest …but not too peacefully!

Haunted Segway Tour Groupon is NOT the REAL Greenville Ghost Tour

Downtown Greenville: 10 wannabe teenage thugs threaten a couple in parking garage with toy gun

Breaking news from Greenville Ghost NEWS Network… Bringing you the news the mainstream is afraid to!

On Saturday evening 9/14/2013 around 10:30pm, a couple was in a downtown Greenville, SC parking garage when they were approached by a group of 10 African American teenage wannabe thugs who were trying to be intimidating. One of the wannabe thugs pulled a toy gun on the couple and the couple carefully got into their car. Upon driving off, the teen shot at the rear window leaving damage. It was a BB gun that had pulled on this couple.

As reported by WORD 1330 and 950 news talk radio.

As a downtown Greenville business owner and a father,  I am disgusted that more local media outlets are not covering this type of increasing violent activity. Count on me to bring you the unpopular news in an opinionated manner as the Greenville Ghost Tour attempts to get attention about these matters for YOUR safety.

I invite Mayor Knox White and the Greenville City Police department to consider the fact that this kind of crap will CEASE to happen with a city wide open carry ordinance. Until then Greenville Ghost NEWS Network will bring you the hauntings AND the teenage violence problem Downtown Greenville. It is MY business after all to share the dark side of Greenville, SC. It is the business of Mayor Knox White, Greenville City Counsel and The Greenville City Police Department to make the town safe for all of us to enjoy.

You comments are welcome below! Share this story on Facebook and help us bring this problem to light.

~Jason Profit (THE creepiest guy in town)

UPDATE!!! According to Fox Carolina there has been a turn of events in this case! Greenville Police have made 7 arrests in the case. Thankfully investigators have made headway in this event and the “thugs” in question range in age from 12-15.

I want to applaud the Gville PD for being able to gain ground in what many of us Central Business District biz owners see as a growing problem for the safety of our guests and customers. Attempted robbery and malicious damage are the charges and hopefully this will send a message to the other wannabe “thugs” that think they can get away with crap like this…

Greenville Glides Segway tour tries to copy Greenville Ghost Tours Success with a haunted tour!

Greenville Glides Segway tour tries to copy Greenville Ghost Tours Success with a haunted tour!

They DO say imitation is the greatest form of flattery!

The Original Greenville Ghost Tour is the only authentic haunted tour downtown Greenville, SC. Make no mistake about it!

Don’t be fooled by those trying to cash in on the Halloween season!

So one of the many loyal GGT minions notified me that Greenville Glides was trying to offer a haunted tour on their segways this October I actually got a chuckle. Since I have spent the last 10 years doing my OWN research and investigations to develop the ever evolving stories contained in the Greenville Ghost Tour, I knew there was only ONE source for haunted stories downtown. Me! Jason Profit, creator of the only REAL haunted tour downtown as featured by nearly every major news outlet in Greenville dating all the back to 2008.

So I decided to call Greenville Glides and confirm this rumor… A man answered the phone and I asked. “Is it true that you guys are offering a haunted tour this year?” He had to confirm with a female whom I heard in the back ground… “Um yeah we are still working on the details… it will be in October.” I said “May I speak to the manager?” He confirms he is the manager…I continue, “Well good, Just make sure you are not plagiarizing any of my published stories.” “Who is this” he says… “I am Jason Profit, Owner of the original Greenville Ghost Tour which has been running since 2008, we are the second tour company in Greenville and my book is the only source for ghost stories downtown Greenville. Just make sure you are not trying to plagerize my copyrighted works and we have no problems… by the way I WILL have a plant on your tours making sure you don’t steal my hard work.”

He began sounding nervous… which indicated to me that they likely WERE planning to use my copyrighted works as a basis for their COPYCAT tour… “Oh we won’t be using any of your stories on our haunted tour” he proclaims in a shaky voice.

So if you want to hear the REAL ghost stories of hauntings downtown Greenville and actually visit THE MOST haunted places downtown… Make sure you are the on the ONLY Original Greenville Ghost Tour which has been created and is LED by the most publicized  paranormal expert in the Upstate.

Don’t wast your money on copy cats! The ORIGINAL Greenville Ghost Tour is the only that has the details of the REAL haunted tales and most active haunts downtown.

Now if you want to have a lazy stroll around town… please do check out Greenville Glides Segway Tour. They offer a unique opportunity for those who want to see Greenville from a different perspective… We encourage folks to visit ALL tour operators in the downtown Greenville area. Just don’t fall for the copy cat stuff.

The Vault of Horror Haunted House (downtown)

What: Vault of Horror One day, a man lost his son at the show. He looked high and low for him. The man attended the show each night in hopes of finding his son, and as he left on the last night, he passed a cage with the oddest creature in it. As he looked into the eyes of the creature, he saw his son’s eyes looking back.
The man confronted Raymond and knocked him to the ground. Raymond snapped, recalling his childhood trauma. He struck the man and killed him in front of hundreds of witnesses. The cops came and arrested him.
The next day, Raymond Hunt III disappeared from police custody. The Traveling House of Freaks was never seen again, until a poor soul opened the Vault.

In it, he found the most unique, terrifying, inspiring, and bloodcurdling collection know to man.
