Build­ing’s odd his­tory

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Kingseat Hospi­tal is a for­mer men­tal health fa­cil­ity with 59 build­ings on 58.6 hectares. It of­fi­cially closed in 1999.

Sev­eral in­ci­dents of pa­tients dis­ap­pear­ing af­ter wan­der­ing off from the hospi­tal were re­ported. Some were put down as drown­ings among the man­groves in the nearby har­bour. The bod­ies were never found.

Ghost tours were set up in the early 2000s be­fore the ar­rival of the Spook­ers haunted house at­trac­tion.

Cam­eras set up to record people’s re­ac­tions to Spook­ers’ pranks have al­legedly picked up un­ex­plained fig­ures.

People have com­plained of fur­ni­ture be­ing moved, cold spots and a strong smell of sul­phur in the build­ings.

None of those find­ings have been con­firmed.
