Ghost Hunters celebrated the sixth season launch with their 100th episode before a live audience from the legendary Studio 8H in Rockefeller Center, where they presented their first-ever investigation at Alcatraz as well as a look back at the most shocking and spine-chilling moments the hit series has caught on tape over the past five seasons.

Josh Gates (Destination Truth) hosted the event, which featured investigators from all three Ghost Hunters teams gathered together for the very first time: Jason Hawes, Grant Wilson, Steve Gonsalves, Dave Tango, Amy Bruni, Kris Williams (Ghost Hunters), Barry FitzGerald, Robb Demarest, Dustin Pari (Ghost Hunters International), Susan Slaughter and Karl Pfeiffer (Ghost Hunters Academy).
