TRAVEL CHANNEL JOURNEYS TO THE BEST PLACES FOR OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD EXPEDITIONS, EXTREME SCREAMS, FUN FOOD AND SPOOKY ADVENTURES IN OCTOBER

NEW YORK (September 12, 2017) - A quest to highlight out-of-this-world expeditions, heart-pounding adventures, scary, tasty treats and ghost stories from fascinating places has Travel Channel stars crisscrossing the globe in October. The month begins with a special premiere of "Extreme Hotels" as Anthony Melchiorri checks into haunted hotels around the world. Josh Gates searches for evidence of life beyond the stars in "Expedition Unknown: Hunt for Extraterrestrials," while Don Wildman heads to Transylvania to unearth the real story behind bloodsucking, immortal demons in "Vampires: Mysteries at the Museum." The thrills increase when Zak Bagans leads a four-part "Ghost Adventures" lockdown in Vicksburg, Mississippi, considered one of the world's most haunted cities, and the new series "Xtreme Screams," premieres with back-to-back episodes of the ear-piercing screams heard at hair-raising rides and attractions.

Here are more details about Travel Channel's October series and specials:

Out-Of-This-World Expeditions

"Expedition Unknown: Hunt for Extraterrestrials"

Four-Part Special

It is mankind's eternal question: are we alone in the universe? Adventurer and explorer Josh Gates sets off on an epic 50,000-mile, multi-continent quest across North America, South America, Africa and Europe, searching for evidence of life beyond our planet and the truth behind longstanding extraterrestrial legends. From exploring ancient signs of aliens on remote Easter Island to hunting for meteorite fragments in Zimbabwe, Gates boldly goes where no adventurer has gone before.

Airdates: Wednesday, October 4, 11, 18, 25 at 9 p.m. ET/PT

"Expedition Unknown: After the Hunt"

Four After-Show Specials

For fans that can't get enough of "Expedition Unknown: Hunt for Extraterrestrials," each hour-long episode will revisit Gates' journey in a candid, behind-the-scenes forum. Gates and his team dig deeper into their astounding findings, further analyze key evidence and reveal never-before-seen footage from the expedition.

Airdates: Wednesday, October 4, 11, 18, 25 at 10 p.m. ET/PT

Extreme Screams

"Xtreme Screams"

New Series

Fear has a sound and "Xtreme Screams" will ensure that thrill-seekers' screams - heard at exhilarating rides, attractions and experiences around the world - will reverberate in viewers' ears long after they watch each heart-pumping episode. From Colorado's Terror-Dactyl, which launches riders 100 mph over Manitou Springs, to a heart-pounding jump off the 260-foot-high Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban, South Africa, one thing each adventure has in common is the ear-piercing shrieks coming from those brave enough to try it!

Airdates: Sunday, October 8, 15, 22, 29 at 9 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. ET/PT

Fun Food

"Food Paradise" - "Scary Good"

Special Episode

Take a terrifying tour of some of the most haunted, or just plain haunting, restaurants in the country. From kitschy kitchens that celebrate All Hallows' Eve year-round, to dining in dungeons or grabbing drinks with your monster squad in an old jailhouse, one thing remains the same: no matter where we go in "boo paradise," the food is always scary good.

Airdate: Sunday, October 8 at 8 p.m. ET/PT

Spooky Adventures

"Extreme Hotels" - "Haunted Hospitality"

Special Episode

Host Anthony Melchiorri faces his fears - braving the most haunted hotels in the world. From Ottawa Jail Hostel to Chillingham Castle, the hotelier's beliefs and nerves are put to the test as he travels to creepy castles and mansions, staying in rooms with fearsome stories from housekeepers and groundskeepers.

Airdate: Monday, October 2 at 9 p.m. ET/PT

"Vampires: Mysteries at the Museum"

One-Hour Special

The vampire legend may be over 1,000 years old, but Dracula and other vampire myths continue to both frighten and entertain us. Host Don Wildman heads to Romania to explore its rich medieval history, mystical folklore and dank caves filled with bats to unearth the real story behind the vampire legend - and it's even more frightening than we could imagine.

Airdate: Thursday, October 5 at 9 p.m. ET/PT

"Ghost Adventures" - "Hauntings of Vicksburg"

Four-Part Special

Paranormal investigator Zak Bagans and the "Ghost Adventures" team heads to haunted Vicksburg, Mississippi, exploring the lasting impact the Civil War's Siege of Vicksburg has had on the city. The team searches for paranormal evidence during lockdown investigations in McRaven Mansion, considered to be the most haunted building in the South; an antique doll museum said to contain dolls that come alive; an abandoned hospital; and the site of the Battle of Champion Hill.

Airdates: Saturday, October 7 at 9 p.m. and 10 p.m., Saturday, October 14 and 21 at 9 p.m. ET/PT

"Haunted USA"

Four One-Hour Specials

See America's towns and cities like never before on this spellbinding tour of the historically spookiest and most spirited destinations in the country. From enchanted hotels to bewitched bar rooms, "Haunted USA" shows off some of the strangest and scariest paranormal places.

Airdates: Sunday, October 8, 15, 22, 29 at 10 p.m. ET/PT

"Ghost Adventures" - "Museum of Madness" and "Annabelle's Curse"

Two-Part Halloween Special

"Ghost Adventures'" Zak Bagans has opened a Haunted Museum in downtown Las Vegas, housing his collection of haunted and cursed objects. With several new items on hand, Bagans calls on experts from previous "Ghost Adventures" investigations to tap into the energies within each object. In the second half of the two-part special, Bagans invites three lucky fans to the museum to further investigate the dark entities. Then, Bagans ups the fear factor with the arrival of the famously haunted doll, Annabelle, who comes with very strict rules: no physical handling, no provoking and a quart of holy water must be on standby in case of possession.

Airdate: Saturday, October 28 at 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. ET/PT
