Bryan Kaplan:As I've said before the place feels eerie ... though I will admit it felt less eerie on the bridge this time. The new eerie is in the dining room area and the bedroom. This time the sound of a door opening and slamming was experienced two times.
Beth McLenaghan:What a fascinating place to visit. The only room I personally had experiences in was the "dining room". A lot of strange things, there. Weird, sudden temperature changes. My digital camera wouldn't work at all. Several times the hair on my neck stood on end, and once I felt a sort of warmth to the side of me, like an electric blanket was being held 4-5 inches from my body in the really cold room. The most unsettling thing for me, were the bangs, knocks and other noises I heard coming from the wall behind me. I could feel the wall being hit and shaking behind me. There was also one bedroom where we sat for awhile, and I was fine in there, until about about 20 minutes into the time we'd been sitting there, I felt a very heavy presence over me, very sick to my stomach, and I broke out in a cold sweat. Was very glad when we left that space, the last 10-15 minutes we were in there I was very uncomfortable, and felt as though I _shouldn't_ be there.
Hugh McLenaghan:It was another strange night of noises and bumps. At one point we were in the dining-room part of the haunted house, where we all sat down on the floor. There were several noises, and bangs. One specific one that was very loud and totally unexplainable. It was a door banging, now this door was held closed by a strong spring. First we heard the spring make a noise, then the door banged close. There wasn't anyone near that part of the room. It was a door that was just outside the room we were in.
Becky Ray:This was a different type of night for me than the previous two visits were.
We sat vigil in two of the rooms on the second floor where we kept hearing noises as if there were others in the building. In fact at one point I could hear what sounded like someone in the room directly behind where we were although there was no one else on the floor.
While we were in the "bedroom" that is set up to function as the "Exorcist" room when the power is on to the haunted house I suddenly began to feel very ill. It was at this time that I noticed what felt like a looming "presence" with me. This feeling lasted until I left the building.
We again conducted experiments to see if we could find a cause for the phenomena of the hanging bridge. I had my video camera set up at the opposite end of the bridge this time and am in the process of reviewing this footage.

The Catacombs Haunted House - Visit 2, 28th January, 2006
THIS EVP POTENTIALLY CONTAINS PROFANITY: This clip was recorded in a secret room that was directly behind a wall that Becky was sitting against in the 'dining room'. Todd will make a comment regarding the sounds we heard from directly behind Becky earlier, and how he doesn't see how he could recreate it unless someone had thrown small particles of something that was laying on the floor in the secret room we were in. Following Todd's statement you will hear an unknown voice say "Can't" or "C*nt". If it is indeed the word "Can't" then the A is sounded out as a SHORT A.

After hearing a door open and close itself Todd, Bryan, Becky, Sevren, Hugh, and Beth all go to the entrance of the building to find that the others were outside during the time it happened. This E.V.P. was recorded when Bryan was standing just inside the front entrance of the building while everyone else was just outside the front door. Becky stood inside the front door as well. You will hear Bryan ask Todd if he's ready to go back upstairs yet and after Todd responds you will hear a voice say "Get the hell out of..." The last word gets cut off, but to me it seems to say 'Here' (as it get the hell out of here."

This EVP was recorded in the Elevator. You will hear the sound of the elevator going up and then stopping. As the elevator stops you will hear a voice say "Thank You" following Todd commenting on the "door completely opening and slamming shut all by itself" incident.

At this point, Todd and Bryan were back in the elevator heading towards the 2nd floor where a few people were, sitting on a suspension bridge. You will hear the elevator stop and the elevator gate doors slide open. It's during the time when the doors are being opened when you hear an unknown voice say "DIE" followed by Todd talking.
