TV show investigates paranormal activity at Hell’s Gate Airtram

Episode of Ghost Hunter's International to air in April

Hell’s Gate Airtram will be featured in an upcoming episode of Ghost Hunter’s International.

Last October, Pilgrim Films & Television Inc. chose the Fraser Canyon attraction as one of two Canadian locations to shoot their popular paranormal TV show.

“They hunted us down,” said airtram general manager Debbie McKinney. “It was a pretty exciting time. They said it was one of the most spectacular places that they have ever filmed in.”

A crew of about a dozen people arrived in the Fraser Canyon two days after Hell’s Gate Airtram closed for the season. Misty and foggy weather provided the ideal backdrop for two nights and one day worth of shooting. Accompanying the crew were popular cast members/investigators Barry Fitzgerald, Joe Chin, Paul Bradford and Kris Williams.

“Hopefully it will bring awareness to the paranormal activity that does go on there, to our attraction as a whole, and more people will come up and see us this summer,” said McKinney. “With all the history in the Fraser Canyon – the Fraser Canyon War, the building of the railway and the Chinese labourers that were killed during that time – there’s lots of elements of spirits that could be possible.”

Hell’s Gate Airtram has been the subject of numerous unexplained paranormal activity since the winter of 2006, when guests and staff starting coming forward with testimonials of disembodied incidents.

The Ghost Hunter’s International episode is set to air on OLN at the beginning of April. Hell’s Gate opens for 2012 on April 20.
