(People Magazine) — The Haunted Museum: 3 Ring Inferno premieres on Halloween on Travel Channel and will stream on discovery+
Ghost Adventures' Zak Bagans never hesitates to face his fears.
As the founder and lead investigator for the Travel Channel and discovery+ hit series since 2008, he has spent years chasing down the paranormal with his team of Aaron Goodwin, Billy Tolley and Jay Wasley. Bagans opened The Haunted Museum in Las Vegas in 2018 to share his vast personal collection of oddities and frightening objects with the world.
Now he's bringing a new niche of terror to the small screen for a two-hour Halloween special. "It's funny because the idea and story for it started before I even began investigating the paranormal or had the museum," Bagans, 45, tells PEOPLE exclusively of writing his scripted horror film The Haunted Museum: 3 Ring Inferno. "I went to a film school back in 2002 and I'm more into the documentary stuff. But it just became so visual for me, I started writing it down. I was like, What does this mean? Why am I thinking about the circus? It wouldn't get out of my head."
