Paranormal investigators from SyFy’s Ghost Hunters paid a visit to the historic downtown Rapid City Hotel Alex Johnson in November 2010. After many stories from employees, guests, and a few of his own experiences, Rich Dunkelberger decided to invite Ghost Hunters to evaluate the hotel. Rich Dunkelberger was the former chief executive officer of hotel management company ISIS Hospitality.
Despite not being able to gather hard evidence of aggressive paranormal activity, there was enough there for Ghost Hunters to say that the hotel could very well be haunted. Should people be afraid? Not at all. Whatever is here is harmless.
