Be a ghost hunter for the night while searching for the unknown during a public paranormal
investigation of the historic and haunted Tri-County Restaurant & Truck Stop in Villa Ridge, MO
(about 40 miles west of St. Louis right off of Hwy 44) with team members of Paranormal Task
Force.

Tri-County Truck Stop has been featured on SyFy’s “Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files” segment
“Truck Stop Terror”, Fox 2 News, The Missourian newspaper and in several books.  Paranormal
Task Force has been featured in Spooked Television’s (Booth Brothers) documentaries
“Children of the Grave” (aired on SyFy and Chiller), “The Haunted Boy: the Secret Diary of the
Exorcist” and “Children of the Grave 2” (both airing in the near future).  Also featured in  
Paranormal TV’s miniseries “Haunt U” via Comcast on Demand, SyFy’s “Fact or Faked:
Paranormal Files” segment “Truck Stop Terror” and filmed for an episode of the History
Channels new series “Sold!”.  

This once Route 66 roadside icon formerly known as “The Diamonds” Restaurant has had its
share of tragic moments throughout its past.  Started by a young law student with ambitions and
dreams as a roadside stand selling plums in the early 1900’s, it grew to being the world’s
largest roadside restaurant in its heyday.   The current building, built in 1950 after the previous
building burnt to the ground in the late 1940’s, became the Tri-County Restaurant and Truck
Stop in 1970 after “The Diamonds” relocated to be nearer to the newly opened Interstate
Highway.

Before closing its doors to the public in September of 2006, employees and customers alike
were experiencing a plethora of paranormal activity.  Such experiences and reports included
full-bodied apparitions, eerie shadow figures, objects levitating from one table to another,
kitchen appliances turned off and on, people touched by unseen forces, children reporting
seeing a bloody monster on the stairway, disembodied voices and so much more.  Paranormal
Task Force (formerly Missouri Paranormal Research) investigations of 2006 yielded some of the
most phenomenal visual and audible captures to date, validating both employee and customer
experiences at this spine-chilling location.

A pre-investigative meeting and tour will start at 6:00 p.m. to present the historical & haunted
history of the Tri-County Restaurant and Truck Stop. Then the investigation will begin about
8:00 p.m. and conclude at 4 a.m.  Midnight snacks and refreshments will be provided.

"LUCKY 13 INVESTIGATION"
at Mineral Springs Hotel (now mall) in Alton, IL
Saturday Ju
ly 19, 2014


I
Spend the night investigating the other side at the Mineral Springs Hotel in Alton! Join the
members of Paranormal Task Force in a public investigation of this mysterious hotel with an
abundant amount of ghostly encounters.

With the property originally dating back to the 1880’s as a meat packing company, the owners
discovered a natural spring underground in 1910. With this new discovery, the plant was
converted for water bottling.  The water from the mineral springs was shipped to customers
throughout the country with over 100 bottles being sold every day.

The owners decided to capitalize even more on the springs, they built a hotel, opening in 1914,
on top of the water plant with two pools pumping mineral water into them.  These springs
created “curing powers” for those who swam in them.  It’s estimated that over 3,000 people a
year would come to Alton for the healing waters in those pools.  The hotel thrived for more than
40 years till the 1960’s when belief in the curing powers declined. In 1971, the hotel closed and
sat empty till it was purchased in 1978 and turned into a mall, which it’s still used as today.
Since it’s closing over 40 years ago, the hotel has become less known for the “curing powers”
of the mineral spring and more for its ghosts.  Legend says that at least three ghosts still roam
the halls of this once beautiful location.  

Do past guests still walk the Mineral Springs Hotel?  Use the latest in paranormal equipment,
explore this once extravagant hotel with experienced paranormal investigators, and collect
your own evidence to prove they still do!  All this is waiting for you at the Mineral Springs Hotel
(currently the Mineral Springs Mall) in haunted Alton, IL!

A pre-investigative meeting and tour will start at 6:00 p.m. to present the historical & haunted
history of the hotel. Then the all night investigation will begin about 9 p.m. &  conclude at 4 a.m.
with light snacks provided.
