"Legend Tripping"\, also known as ostension\, is a name rece ntly bestowed by folklorists and anthropologists on an adolescent practice (containing elements of a rite of passage) in which a usually furtive noctu rnal pilgrimage is made to a site which is alleged to have been the scene o f some tragic\, horrific\, and possibly supernatural event or haunting. The custom may be based on folk practices from Great Britain involving holy we lls and similar shrines\; on certain days of the year\, young people would visit them\, and these visits attracted attention on account of drinking an d sexual activity at the site. 

\n

Tales telling of marvels\, wonders\ , or mysterious phenomena have excited human curiosity and inspired travel for centuries. What distinguishes legend tripping from other sorts of touri sm is the notion of a dangerous experiment. The legends of legend trips typ ically warn of dangers. The legend trippers violate the tabooed site for th e specific purpose of flirting with that danger. The legend trip is a speci fic ritual\, and as such takes place in ritual time and ritual space. This creates a sort of mentally separate sphere in which the legend trip occurs\ , and allows the legend trippers to flirt with the dangers while minimizing their psychic effects in ordinary (i.e. non-ritual) life.
