This Abandoned And Haunted Amusement Park Has a Bloody History

Lake Shawnee Amusement Park

Many say that this place is probably one of the creepiest abandoned amusement parks in the United States. The reason being is that it’s said to be cursed and that there should have never been an amusement park on that land in the first place.

There’s always some kind of story of someone passing away at an amusement park, but in this case it’s a bit different. The rides that this place had were your basic rides without any roller coasters.

The way that some of the deaths happened make you think about the curse and if it’s actually real. Some people don’t believe in curses and others do, could there be a possibility that the land is actually cursed?

Maybe it is is and maybe it isn’t, but one thing is for sure, there was a lot of bad things that happened on that land way before that place was even built.Some say that the land was haunted beforehand, and that the owner who built the place was warned against turning it into a fun park. 

Whatever the case this place is still there, it was just left to rot and become part of the land. It’s a grim reminder of a time where there once was a place built for happiness that was set over a land where sadness once prevailed.

Does the past still echo in the wind there? Some say it does and many have seen ghosts in this location. It’s a very spooky place that gives us all a haunted reminder, you decide for yourself if the curse is real or not.

    22. laura says:

      its in west virginia.Lake Shawnee fans know the facts intimately: a little girl died on the swings and a boy drowned in the pond. All told, roughly 6 visitors died during the amusement park’s brief history. In 1966, the attraction was abandoned. The cheerful turquoise, red and green rides slowly faded and flaked.

    It’s between Becky and Princeton in a small town called Rock West Virginia, on state route 19. I’ve been by it several times but never stopped. I think they open it once a year and that may be around Halloween. Lots of local folk lore about it in the area.

  6. Shelley says:

    Whether or not its stated if they dont want someone to know about something they shouldn’t bring it up at all. Not stating the location sparks ones interest to look fo it and research more bringing people to this place
