Dakota Laden, Chelsea Laden, Tanner Wiseman and Alex Schroeder return to the road for an all-new season of Destination Fear, beginning with a two-part investigation of the infamous Cresson Sanatorium and Prison.
The scary adventures begin on Friday, November 25 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Travel Channel and discovery+ (streaming all day on November 25).
The Cresson Sanatorium is not only the largest location the team has ever explored, but they will do so without a key component of any walk in the dark: flashlights. Dakota Laden’s experiments continue in the new season with his idea of prohibiting the team’s use of flashlights as a means to enhance paranormal activity in the location.
Other highlights this season include a trip to the world-famous Winchester Mystery House, the Ashmore Estate, a deserted hospital in Tennessee, a haunted junior high school, and the abandoned Norwich State Hospital.
