Transylvania is a 2 hour Halloween special which aired during Season 8 of Ghost Adventures. The ancient Celts believed that Halloween was the time when the veil between the world of the living and world of the dead was at its thinnest. And for Zak, Nick and Aaron, it means it's a time for spirits to run free. Ghost Adventures spends this Halloween in Transylvania, a region in central Romania, on a quest to contact Dracula and the spirits associated with him. Hunedoara Castle was known for torturing its prisoners. Hoia-Baciu Forest is known for its paranormal activity, and the mysterious circle located in the center of the forest where no trees or plants grow. This circle is where Zak has a terrifying experience. This 2-hour special features the guys' once-in-a-lifetime journey into the heart of Romania and the birthplace of Vlad Dracula, searching Targoviste Castle, Hoia-Baciu Forest and Hunedoara Castle for answers.
