haunted theme/amusment park stories

Monday, October 24, 2005 2:08 PM
Well it’s that time of year again Halloween what are some stories you have heard? I heard of a park by a lake that was on an Indian burial ground. I think it was lake Shawnee. No coaster just a Ferris wheel and some swings. It was on A show I watched. There was one part where they where quiet and they heard something coming out of the lake. Creepy!

Do English teachers think the lesson on punctuation and capitalization is optional? If so, I want my tax dollars back.

Zongaboy, Camden Park has an Indian burial "mound" right next to it's Whip. :-) I didn't realize another park had a similar claim. ;-)

What zongaboy is referring to is ABC Family's Scariest Places on Earth which aired last night. The story goes that a settler's two daughters were scalped by Shawnee Indians, and a little girl was killed on those swings.

Once I had a corn dog at a park that "haunted" me for a couple of days. Does that count?

Stay at Hotel Conneaut, they sell a book written by one of the employees there that has stories and pictures of all the ghost and spirit encounters she has heard while working there.

It's really creepy to ride the Blue Streak in the dark. I promise you there was something back in the woods for two of the runs on the '04 Blue Streak Challenge. It was near the end I just got really creeped out, then the feeling went away.

^ Becca: You beat me to it for CLP. I haven't read the book yet.

I've stayed at the hotel many times and I never heard/saw anything unusual about it.

I saw a moose in the CLP woods once. That was pretty cool.

I saw that show, it kind of creeped me out. The moving swing (not by the wind, only one was moving while the others were still) and the rocking car on the ferris wheel were kind of freaky. I wonder if it was all a setup...

Every Six Flags has that creepy old man that gets off of the bus and acts like Michael Jackson. That is enough to scare me.

Kings Island has several related to Indian Holy Ground. Word is that the spirits let the Safari exist as it actually put nature into the area on the north end of the park.

The spirits were angered by the removal and subsequent SOB building and thus all the problems constructing and mainatining SOB.

Other such stories like Tower Johnny getting the blame for everything and Black Sunday have been turned into urban legend.

Behind Wild One at SFA Partnership Mansion stands. Partnership Mansion was once owned by the Halls who had a daughter named Eleanor. Eleanor fell out of a top window when she was little, cracked her head open and died. She was burried on the grounds of Partnership. When they were building either Wild Animal Kingdom or Wild World a bulldozer ran over her tombstone and cracked it. Every year, around her birthday weird things happens. A car caught fire in the parking lot one year, a five year old kid died in the wave pool (when the park was Wild World) another, occasional loss of power to the entire park. All of this has been blamed on the childish antics of Eleanor.

However, Hall Manor now lives on every year at Six Flags America. The original manor is now designated as a historic landmark and the park is required to have a protective buffer around the property. Since the original Hall Manor can't be used, SFA uses the storage "barn" next to Roar as Hall Manor. Perhaps someone that has waited in line to tour Hall Manor can tell us whether or not it's the story of Eleanor. I've never been through it.... I really don't want to get that close to Eleanor. ;)


A day at the park is what you make it!

The Mole's avatar BTW, just to add, I have some great Disney ones, I just need to find them and post them here. Just so busy with college! *eek*

Anyway, ever heard of George at Pirates of the Carribean at WDW?

Anyway, there are LOTS of variations of the story, many take creative licenses, but still, they all revolve around the character of George.

Rumor goes that George was a maintaince employee/ride designer who worked in the early years of WDW. That's what's in all the stories. Each one is unique, and I need to post them all, but still, some deal with him commiting suiced on the ride, gay lovers, anti-gay sentements, etc. BUT, what really stikes this story as different is that if someone says they don't believe in George, a CM or a guest, the ride has been known to break down under the oddest of circumstances. Many say it's George, other just chalk it up to an old ride system.

There, ofcourse, are the great stories of the HM, some in Tomorrowland, and a few others. Most of the stories are centered around the MK, not Epcot, Disney Studios, or AK.

I know about "Black Sunday" but who/what the heck is Tower Johnny?

Tower Johnny was a kid visiting on Grad night that thought it's be neat to show off and climb the Eifel Tower at KI. The elevator counter weight struck him, Beheading him as I understand it.

Johnny haunts the park to this day, Almost every stange incident is blamed on him.
