Ah yes, who doesn’t love the joyful escape that is the amusement park? But beneath the din of cheerful screams and creaking coasters, what darkness lurks?
From aviator apparitions at Universal Studios to the cursed and sacred grounds of Lake Shawnee, and with a final stop at Disney’s dark side, we explore some of the creepiest accounts from the happiest places on earth.
So please, Belieflings, fasten your safety belts, and keep your arms and legs inside the ride at all times, as we seek out Dark Amusements and embark through the treacherous gates of the Belief Hole.
