New York is a city filled with tourist traps. Just spend a couple of minutes in Times Square and you’ll be accosted by jerks trying to sell you tickets to concerts, clubs, theater performances, comedy clubs, and sightseeing tours. Some of these are legit, and turn out to be a good deal. Others are bogus scams. And some of the tours are adventures you can easily do on your own, for free, and without being crammed on a bus with people less concerned with personal hygiene than you are.
But there’s one tour that just might be worth the cash, especially if you’re looking for a little extraterrestrial adventure.
Pete and Stew Kandel, who call themselves the Ghost Doctors, have created the UFO Phenomena Tour.
This tour takes place at night in New York’s Central Park. And, if you’ve ever been in Central Park at night, you know things get strange.
The tour’s website details, “This 843 acre oasis of iconic structures, lush lawns and bodies of water located in the heart of Manhattan has been in existence for almost 150 years which makes Central Park the ideal beacon for a UFO Visitation.”
But if Central Park is such a great spot for UFOs, why pay some dudes for something you can do on your own?
Well, first of all, you don’t want to be alone in Central Park at night. Secondly, Dr. Pete and Dr. Stew share a lot of UFO information with those on the tour. According to the website, here are some things you can expect to discover on the UFO Phenomena Tour:
- How to conduct an actual UFO investigation.
- Learn how to use different equipment employed in UFO investigations including microwave detectors, Geiger counters, infrared night vision, binoculars, as well as your own peepers when searching the heavens above NYC for IFOs (identified flying objects) and UFOs.
- Track the UFO timeline from Ancient Astronauts to the earliest reported sighting of flying saucers, to the present mysteries and sightings.
- Unravel the controversies of Roswell, Area 51 and the government's Project Blue Book.
- Military and commercial aircraft UFO encounters including authentic video and audio tracks.
- Famous encounters by presidents (Reagan, Carter), celebrities, and even rock stars. Listen and watch live footage of their amazing experiences.
John Lennon is one of those rock stars who saw a UFO from his New York apartment in 1974. As he wrote in his song “Nobody Told Me,” “There’s a UFO over New York and I ain’t too surprised.”
The next UFO Phenomena Tour takes place on Friday, July 17, 2015. And the tour lasts approximately one hour and forty-five minutes to two hours. But if that date doesn’t work for you, additional UFO tours will be available in the future. And, as their name indicates, the Ghost Doctors also offer several ghost tours in New York as well.
You can purchase tickets online. But the website suggests booking early because the tour apparently sells out quickly.
