- Send a Sim to the Park
  (Ghosts? Seriously?! Uh-oh, one of your Sims has a fear of ghosts and wants to find somewhere to hide in the park! Quick, send a Sim to the park!)

- Hide in the Public Toilet in the Park (45 secs)
  (Where to hide... I know, the public toilet! Make a Sim hide in the public toilet.)

- Buy the Spooky Painting (free)
  (Your Sim can't hide in the public toilets all day, they have to overcome their fear of ghosts! Buy one of the spooky, haunted paintings from the Decorations section of the Home store. The spooky paintings are marked with a red ghost icon. Let's face this fear and proves there's no such things as ghosts!)

- Hide from the Painting (40 secs)
  (Uh... I’m pretty sure that was coincidence. Lights flicker all the time. Oh, who am I kidding!? This happened as soon as the painting arrived! Tap the painting (if you dare) and select ‘Hide from Painting’.)

- Drink a Herbal Tea (1 min 36 secs)
  (Phew, that painting is scary! Your Sim really needs to calm down. They should probably try drinking a herbal tea. If you haven’t already got a tea pot, you can find them in the Home Store in the Kitchen category!)

- Complain to the Toilet (5 hrs - 3 star)
  (**GURGLE... gurgle, gurgle... BLLLURP** Did you hear that? I think that sound came from the toilet. That’s it! Your Sim can’t go through life being terrified of creepy paintings and gurgling toilets. Go lecture the toilet about why ghosts can’t possibly exist.)

- Complain to a Spooky Painting (5 hrs 30 mins)
  (You tell that toilet!
Wow, confronting your fears really works. Your Sim is starting to get over their fear of ghosts! Let’s keep this going. Get your Sim to confront the spooky painting and tell it off for being scary.)

- Get 4 Sims in the Park
  (There’s a group of Sims getting together in the park to discuss the recent ghost sightings. Rumor has it that this group of Sims are going to become Sim Town’s resident ghost hunters. Go meet them!)

- Hold a Conference on a Soapbox in the park (1 day 30 mins)
  (Okay, now that everyone’s here, nobody seems to be taking the initiative to organize the group! Someone needs to lead this group of Ghost Seekers. Get a Sim to stand up on that soapbox and Hold the 1st Annual Ghost Conference!)

- Look for Ghosts with a Video Camera (16 hrs 30 mins, in the Park!) 
  (One of your Sims had a great idea: if you haven’t had any luck spotting a ghost yet, why not try using a video camera and capturing one on film?! Look for ghosts with one of the video cameras in the park.)


GHOSTS SPOTTED!
Ghosts spotted in Sim Town! A local Sim has confirmed the presence of ghosts through recorded video footage and vows to become a ghost hunter!

- Buy another Spooky Painting (free)
  (They exist! Okay, it’s time to hunt these guys down! Place another piece of spooky furniture in your house. Let’s get this place nice and haunted!
Note: Spooky furniture can be found throughout the home store. Look for the red ghost icon to identify spooky furniture!)

- Buy Spooky Bookshelf (§ 200 -> Living Room section)
  (Hmm... not quite haunted enough. Buy a spooky bookshelf for your house.
Note: Spooky furniture can be found throughout the home store. Look for the red ghost icon to identify spooky furniture!)

- Read Fine Literature (9 hrs 30 mins on 3-star bookshelf, 12 hrs on 'spooky bookshelf')
  (Hey, your new spooky bookshelf contains a book written by a ghost! It’s called ‘Can’t Touch This: A Story of Penmanship or Lack Thereof’. It’s considered to be fine literature! Read it!)

- Buy Spooky Chains (§ 180 -> Decorations)
  (Okay, one more piece should do it. Place some spooky chains in the house!
Note: Spooky furniture can be found throughout the home store. Look for the red ghost icon to identify spooky furniture!)

- Tell Jokes to the Spooky Chains (4 hrs 30 mins)
  (That’s it; your house is now haunted! Hmm... but where are the ghosts?
I know, let’s get those little ghosts to come out by telling some funny jokes! Tap the Spooky Chain you just placed and select ‘Tell Jokes’. Your Sim can tell the one about the ghost whose favourite movie is High S-Ghoul Musical!)




You've unlocked the Ghost Hunting hobby! Your Sims can now hunt for ghosts on any piece of haunted furniture!


You just unlocked the Haunted House! You can now build it in any housing lot and your Sims can live there... if they dare!
(Shown in the Build A House menu)

Happy Simming!
