    1. Hello we visited the park today and we decided to go up to the 3rd floor of the hotel when we got up to the floor I felt uncomfortable and like someone was sitting on my chest I told my family we had to go there’s something here when I said that I was looking at room 3D and the door opened we immediately ran to the elevator and left keep in mind spirits are attracted to me they’ve always been

      I work at this hotel. I’ve had a few experiences in the short time I’ve worked here, but there’s one that stands out to me the most. I was working on the fourth floor, I don’t remember the exact room. Keep in mind that the window behind me was closed and there was no air flow coming through. I was finishing up making the bed, putting a pillow in a case. Out of nowhere, there was a clear, quick, deep sigh right behind the back of my head. I felt a weird pressure on the back of my neck and all my hairs stood up. It really scared me. I even took the pillow out of the case and redid it, jumped up and down, trying my best to recreate that experience to see if I was just freaking myself out, but I knew it wasn’t because of something I did.
      Spooky stuff! I’ve had guests tell me their experiences as well. If you want a chance at experiencing something creepy, that’s a good place for it.

    3. I forgot which floor I was on. I was about 12 years old maybe 13, I loved it. The buffet, snow and everything. Unfortunately we skipped out on our skiing trip cuz of covid. It was all good until the very last day. I had just finished watching how to train a dragon and decided to go to bed. About an hour later I had a REALLY BAD anxiety attack for no apparent reason. I was crying for like 2 hours. I felt like someone or something had possesed me. I felt like those werent my emotions I was feeling. I dont remember what I was sad about. And when me and my brother were alone while my parents were getting Groceries from the store like 20 mins away, We felt like we werent alone. Aside all that, this hotel is a very nice place to stay and very comfortable. I would watch out for any paranormal occurrences tho.
