    Hershey Ghost Stories

    Post  Stormwinder on Fri Oct 16, 2009 5:39 pm

    The Carousel is known to be haunted. They say that it has turns on by itself in the middle of the night.
    The Sooperdooperlooper is also haunted. In 1977 when the park was doing a test run of the ride before it opend a maintenance worker was on the track working on something then the train went by and ran over him. It killed him. He is sometimes seen roaming the track on quiet nights at the park.
    (I do believe this story, a couple of years a go I sware I saw someone standing beside the track, then it flased away. The ride is creepy at night.)

    It is also said that Milton Hershey has been seen roaming the Hotel.

    Do you believe these stories? Have you heard any other stories about the park?

    I believe the looper story as well. Quite a few years ago, I was walking outside the park in the middle of the winter at night, I heard the chain running. It was very creepy, especially since there was nobody else around.

    I've never heard any other stories. I'm sure I would have heard them during my years working there if there were any others.

    ^^I see you've found that ghost story book! lol

    It does feel like the park is creepy after closing. If you stay until the last minute at the park and walk out starting at midway, with very few people left in the park, it does kind of give you that feeling.

    The SDL story was that the guy was supposedly working near the loop when whatever he was doing, somehow caused him to dispatch a train where it ran into him. I really doubt that this happened because all the electronical controls are inside the station and there'd be no excuse for the wiring for that to be out at the loop unless it somehow had something to do with the trims on the turn that goes through it.
    My theory is that the guy was was either inspecting the ride while it was testing or he just simply got electricuted by the wiring for the running lights.

    What book? I did not know there was a ghost story book that had Hersheypark in it. I just found out the information from being at the park over the years and knowing people.

    I agree with Stormwinder. I haven't heard of that one either. Did you find it in the library or something?

    I was basically browsing the local history section at Barnes & Noble a month ago and came across a ghost story book that covers stories in the Harrisburg, Lancaster and Ephrata are and they had a chapter in on Hershey. It covered these stories inside the park as well as ones at the Hershey Theatre and Hotel Hershey. I forgot the title though.

    I've heard about the carousel. I actually have heard first hand from one of our maintenance guys while he was working late in the circle area near the carousel, he noticed that the lights were on. He went over and shut them off and turned to walk away. When he left the area and came back, he found the lights on again and thought he saw someone sitting at the controls. As he got closer what ever was at the controls disappeared. I would like to see that for myself though.
