Lion Ambassadors To Lead ‘Haunted Valley’ Ghost Tours Through Campus

Update Oct. 21: This year’s Lantern Tours are rescheduled for November 4 due to impending inclement weather.

The Lion Ambassadors will again embrace Penn State’s spooky past during their second-ever Haunted Valley ghost tours through campus. The tours, described by the Lion Ambassadors as “a walk through Penn State’s past,” will depart from the Hintz Family Alumni Center.

Unlike the Lion Ambassadors’ Lantern Tours which are designed to shed light on historical Penn State figures, the Haunted Valley tours will guide attendees through campus using some of the university’s eeriest ghost stories.

The event will have a photo booth, activities like pumpkin painting and pumpkin bowling, and fall-themed food including cider and pie. There will also be live music from The Nittany Mountain Trailways Band. The tours are free, open to the community, and led by Penn State’s very own Lion Ambassadors.

The event will take place this Friday from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. If you’re one of the many students leaving campus during Halloween weekend for canning, this is the perfect opportunity to get your spook. Fortunately, Penn State has plenty of options this year.
