MOA, Sea Life, Spooks and Twin Cities Live!

Last Friday I did a shoot for a fabulous television show called Twin Cities Live. The show showcases some of the happenings in the Twin Cities. Let’s just say, something is definitely happening at The Mall of America, and I don’t mean just the great shopping!

I’ve been a regular guest on Twin Cities Live since September 2009. My segments have included everything from reading models (Cheryl Tiegs), football players (Chris Kluwe) to audience members and their pets!

Last October we did a story on a grand old mansion that had been turned into an elegant restaurant called Forepaughs. There was a rumor about ghosts and we set out to discover for ourselves if there was any truth to them. It was definitely a lot of fun but not overly creepy.

Well last Friday was fun and extremely chilling! We invited Dave Schrader of Darkness Radio to join us. We were originally headed to another potentially haunted spot and then Dave learned that something fishy was going on at Sea Life at The Mall of America and suggested we check it out.

So late last Friday night, Kerry from Twin Cities Live, Darkness Dave and I met Megan and Nate from Sea Life at the MOA. We headed down in the dark to see the aquatic life and perhaps some apparitions.

Honestly, I was initially a doubter and thought that the whole thing might be a ploy for advertising. The minute I met Megan and Nate I knew they were honest so I prepared myself for some ghostly encounters. Within a few seconds I felt a chill and sensed stagnant spirit energy rush around my body. I heard faded voices and smelled musty cigarette smoke. Each time I stopped to comment about a different spot, I noticed that Dave paused. I thought it was because of his fear of aquariums.

Later I learned that I had stopped in the very places that Megan had previously pointed out to Dave. They were the very same spots that were noted by employees as potentially eerie.

It’s not unusual for earth bound spirits to drain batteries or mess with anything electronic so I shut my phone off before entering the area. Dave did his thing, I did mine and the spirits floating around Sea Life certainly did theirs! I wasn’t the only one hearing, feeling and seeing apparitions.

When we stepped out of the area, I turned my phone back on and took a few photos. The second picture was great so I saved it and put my phone in my purse. After I arrived home, I wanted to show my husband the cute spook crew and found that I no longer had a camera on my phone. Everything related to the camera was gone. Everything.

Later the next day Dave and I exchanged text messages about the cool and eerie adventure at the MOA. I told him about my camera and then forgot about it until later in the day when I decided to check it just one more time. I touched the camera icon and.. the photos were back!

Without giving too much away before the segment airs tomorrow, you should know.. if you love a good rush or chill, or if you are simply open and interested in the possibilities, you will absolutely want to see Twin Cities Live Tomorrow!
