On an All-New ‘Ghost Adventures: Screaming Room,’ Zak Bagans and the Crew Revisit Their Unforgettable Haunting Experience in Vicksburg, Mississippi



A longtime adventurer, survivalist and military veteran, Cliff Simon is no stranger to danger and battling the extreme. Fascinated by the supernatural all his life, Simon is now taking his expertise on a personal mission, deep into the murky world of the paranormal in “Into the Unknown.” On a hunt for answers to the nightmarish myths and legends that have haunted locals for millennia – swamp monsters, mythical beasts, ancient aliens and mysterious phenomena – Simon uses his skills to hike, swim and even crawl his way into places most wouldn’t dare go. Whether he’s spending the night inside the ancient lava tubes of California’s Mount Shasta or trudging his way through the deadliest swamp in America, Simon’s journey takes him to haunting places where the wilderness and paranormal intersect.

In each episode of “Paranormal Nightshift,” we tell three horrifying stories of paranormal encounters during the night shift.
