Kings Island, an amusement park that opened in 1972, is rumored to have an 1840s graveyard called Dog Street Cemetery on the premises. But most witnesses feel that the park’s haunts are victims of accidental deaths, like the 1976 tragedy when a Lion Country Safari Ranger was killed by a lion or Black Sunday in 1992, when a man, his friend and a security guard were electrocuted in a fountain that had an unknown electrical issue, and a woman on the nearby Flight Commander twisted to look at the commotion in the fountain and fell out of her harness to her death.
One of the Kings Island ghosts seen often is a girl in a period blue dress that some call Tram Girl, as she’s often seen around the parking lot or admissions area after park close. And Racer Boy is the nickname given to a little boy ghost who wears white and appears near the Racer coaster. He is believed to be attached to some of the Racer cars that originally belonged to a Coney Island ride called Shooting Star, on which a little boy was found dead on the tracks, having fallen from the ride. Tower Johnny is the ghost who haunts the Eiffel Tower. In 1983, he was visiting on a grad night event when he fell down an elevator shaft while exploring restricted areas of the Tower. He is still blamed for electrical problems; workers call unexplained tripped sensors “Johnnies.”
