You are the first to hear it officially, a new rafting company offering one and two-day motorized whitewater trips in the Grand Canyon begins this March. The River is basically sold out for 2018 and 2019 so this is a great opportunity, and availability will not last long. All trips will begin and end at the Grand Canyon Caverns Motel and we could not be more excited! The rafting trips cover the last 70 miles of the Colorado as it slices through the Grand Canyon and include nine breath-taking sections of rapids.

February 2018 Grand Canyon Caverns Newsletter

Largest Oldest Deepest Darkest Quietest motel room in the world

  • Largest. 200 feet by 400 feet with 70 foot ceiling
  • Oldest: Caverns and walls over 65 million years
  • Deepest: 220 feet below the surfaces, access via elevator
  • Darkest: absent of any light
  • Quietest: the only sound is your heart beating and your breath. You are the only living thing in the caverns… The only living thing
  • Driest: zero humidity, nothing lives in the caverns, not a fly, not bat, nothing!

Imagine, if you can, spending the night in the oldest, darkest, deepest, quietest, and largest suite room in the world. Imagine, 220 feet below ground, in a cavern that took 65 million years to form, in a room that is 200 feet wide, 400 feet long with a 70 foot ceiling. The largest dry cavern in the United States, so dark that it is completely absent on any light, so quiet because it contains no life forms; nothing lives in the caverns, not a fly, not a mouse, a bat, bug or animal. Nothing. The only thing moving or breathing is you. The air is as dry and clean as one can get, coming in via 65 miles of limestone crevices from the Grand Canyon to the caverns. The limestone takes out all moisture and impurities… Please, re-read the above paragraph, slowly, and think about what each feature represents.

You take the elevator down 22 stories underground and spend the night in a place so quiet and dark, so large and so old, and so alone. It is not for everyone, but if you have the desire and will, you can do this.

There is only one room available in the caverns… we do have plenty of motel rooms above ground… in case the entire group is not as adventurous.

The room is completely furnished with all amenities one would need… 220 feet below the surface, 2 double beds, living room with a queen fold out sofa, (room sleeps up to 6), a library of old books and magazines such as a National Geographic collection dating back to 1917, dictionaries and other books dating back to the late 1800’s. A working record player with records, table and chairs, bathroom, several lightening options for the over night stay in the caverns, and personal lightening. A comfortable “home for the night”. Your check in time is normally with the last tour of the day (4 PM) and check out is shortly after the first tour begins. (10 am) . You can check in earlier and stay later… but keep in mind that the caverns has guided tours 363 days a year along the concrete trails that curves around all sides of the room, so your privacy is limited during tour hours.

There is only one Grand Canyon Caverns Cave motel room, only 364 nights a year. If someone has said they have done it all…have they stayed in the Cave room? Your water is hand carried down and up by staff (100 gallons) and an employee is station on top ground level at the top of the elevator should you need assistance. Not everyone will get to experience this wonderful most unique unusual place in time and in the world.

Dear Friends of the Caverns,

Happy New Year to everyone! 2018 has started out for us with a very mild winter and plenty of sunshine – much like our friends in Southern California, Las Vegas, and Phoenix are all experiencing at home. This means everything at the caverns that would be normally frozen and closed is open and operational. It’s fun to see visitors playing our Disc Golf Course in January. With no bugs and few people, Supai Falls is a delight. There are even a few paddle rafters on the Colorado! Be sure to read below about all the exciting new adventures coming to the Grand Canyon Caverns and our partners this year.

Sincerely,
John McEnulty
Partner, Grand Canyon Caverns

Are the Caverns Haunted?

Grand Canyon Caverns Hires Ghost Experts to investigate Cavern paranormal activity

Mike Kadletz, business manager of the Grand Canyon Caverns, an Arizona Route 66 landmark for over 75 years has hired the OCGALT Paranormal team (Orange County Ghosts and Legends Paranormal Team) in Orange County California to finally put to rest, or confirm, the existence of the reports of Ghost and paranormal activity at the Grand Canyon Caverns to rest.

Over the last half century 8 people have died or been buried on or in the caverns property, and another 4 have spent their lives and have had huge emotional ties of a lifetime in the Caverns. Un-explain ghost and paranormal sightings and activities have been recorded and witness by employees and guest alike. The most popular sighting is seeing a man, believed to be ghost of Walter Peck at the top and bottom of the elevator shaft, opening the doors at different times. Also of great interest, was when the Caverns were used as a burial site for the Native American Indians during winter months? The bodies have been removed, but the whispering sounds of the Indians can often be heard in the caverns when one listens according to reports. And at night in the darkness of the caverns, you do hear things that are not supposed to be heard according to reports. Overnight guess in the caverns suite have also reported seeing what appears to be shadows of Indian figures moving in a dance formation, circular on the rocks, as well as a distant chanting. Other reports have been of seeing images of the hanging of a body at the top of the caverns (A person did so 30 years ago) the list does go on.

The investigating crew of OCGALT will arrive Friday, March 3rd and spend the weekend around the caverns property, but will spend the nights 220 feet under ground investigating. Operated by Matt Harvey, who has been running his paranormal business for 9 years and offers his services to haunted locations in California and Arizona.

About the ghost hunting investigation into the Grand Canyon Caverns

Matt and Chris will be investigating the Grand Canyon Caverns on March 3rd, 4th and 5th, 2012. The investigation will start around dusk and last till the early hours in the morning. Some people report seeing a ghostly figure on the elevator. Is this the previous owner of the property? Other tragic events have happened that could be causing the activity in and around the caverns to. The son of the old owner hung himself on top of the mines could be hanging around. A tour guide who lost his life just outside the caverns, does he still lead tours of the caverns? Who or what is causing the activity at the Grand Canyon Caverns? That’s what the owner wants to find out.

Matt and Chris hope to be able to capture evidence of the ghostly activity that is said to happen in the caverns using the following ghost hunting devices. Different types of EMF detectors including KII Meters, Gauss Meters, Ghost Meters. EMF stands for electronic magnetic fields or energy and are said to be given off by ghosts, but can be caused by any electronically device The devices work by lighting up and or by making a loud sound alerting us of an energy change. Sony Handy Cams with Super Night Shot and additional infrared lighting to possibly capture something moving, an apparition or something they can’t explain away onto video. Digital voice recorders, hoping to get what are called an EVP or Electric Voice Phenomenon and are said to be voices heard on the recorder that were to low for us to hear or caused by ghost altering the noises inside the recorder to produce a response that we can sometimes hear. Professional grade digital cameras, again to capture ghostly images or apparitions. Motion sensors, the idea is to have some unseen entity or mass break the beam of the motion sensor beam and the alarm to sound. Matt and Cris are hopeful that they can not only experience the activity that is said to be happening but also capture evidence of it at the caverns. They are hope to be able to establish communication with whom ever or what ever may roaming the caverns in hopes that others may also be able to experience it on tours in the caverns.

Matt and Cris will report any finding and experiences back to the owners of the Grand Canyon Caverns, He is hoping that the Orange County Ghosts And Legends Paranormal Team will bring him back evidence that will show that the caverns are haunted once and for all.
