'Caine... Who am I?' at the National Emergency Services Museum 'Caine... Who am I?' at the National Emergency Services Museum

Sheffield's National Emergency Services Museum launches 'scare experience' in search for ghost called 'Caine'.

One of the oldest buildings in the City is bound to have a few ghosts strolling its corridors, right?

Especially if you consider that building was one of the UK's first purpose-built combined fire and police stations, the police part of which had cells that housed some of Sheffield's most notorious criminals!

Now the National Emergency Services Museum (recently rebranded from the Fire And Police Museum following expansion) on West Bar is throwing open its doors for a unique event for budding thrill seekers.

Taking place in the evenings between 9-17 May, the specially created 'Scare Maze' experience invites you to join guides and paranormal investigators in a search for the ghosts of the building.

Additional special age-appropriate daytime ghost tours are available on 10 and 11 May for the whole family to take part.

Making use of the 120-year old building's history and features, the experience is interactive and uses theatrical elements, including actors, props, smoke and lighting to create something fun, memorable - and hopefully scary - for visitors.

The scare attraction, set up by the museum in a collaboration with PUP Events and Seeking Spirit Events, is called 'Caine... Who am I?' and focuses on trying to find the origins of a mysterious entity that haunts the building.

'Caine' is a name that has been brought up by many different paranormal investigators but none have yet been able to fully trace who the ghost may be.

Said to be a terrorising and murderous figure that hates women, the spirit has apparently caused investigators to collapse and even left marks on the skin of ghost hunters.

Even one of the actors for the event felt a scratch on his back after taking part in a promotional photo shoot at the museum!

Will you experience anything similar on your quest to find Caine?

The scare maze attraction costs just £5 per person and can be booked now via the National Emergency Services Museum website or by calling 0114 2491 999.

Events will run between 7-10pm each evening with each group visit through the maze lasting approximately 20 minutes or more depending on how interactive visitors get during the experience.

Are you brave enough to hunt for Caine at the National Emergency Services Museum? Have you experienced ghosts before? Have your say in the comments below!
