Paranormal Researchers Investigate Haunted Paintball Field

Paranormal Researchers Investigate New Zealand’s Only Haunted Paintball Field

Kingseat Mental Hospital’s infamous maximum security wards have been locked up for close to 20 years, that is until last year when the team at Asylum Paintball decided to build a brand new paintball field there, unaware of the venues haunted past.

After much online research and eerie goings on, they contacted paranormal investigators at Haunted Auckland, who have spent years investigating and researching the Kingseat Hospital complex.

The team at Haunted Auckland have clocked up 9 full night time investigations of the complex, visiting and documenting the nurses quarters that house Spookers Haunted Attraction, private residential villas and more recently the maximum security buildings that house Asylum Paintball.

Haunted Auckland believe that approximately 90% of alleged paranormal activity can be explained as misidentification, unusual atmospheric or natural phenomenon, tricks of the light and photographic glitches. Some cases, however defy all scientific explanation and its this remaining 10% that Haunted Auckland are interested in.

What did they find? What scary things did they see? Is Asylum Paintball Haunted? Read their full investigation including multimedia such as photos, video and sound recordings on the Haunted Auckland website at http://hauntedauckland.com/site/maximum-security-kingseat-hospital/

Gordon Campbell: On The TPP Deal Reached In Atlanta

Yes, the TPP has helped to knock a few points off the tariffs facing our exporters.
