  1. I have been here many times and every time I go here, it feels like a huge weight is put on my shoulders. Every time I hear about something that has happened that nobody can explain. When me and 3 other friends were here, we kept seeing shadows. I went and asked the person at the counter if there was anyone else who was watching that movie and she said ‘no’. I’ve never been back since then because I feel like something bad will happen.

  2. U have got to b kidding me. This place is no where near being hunted I had worked the for several months as a janitor and lot of times by myself. Never once did I feel like there was something there or hear anything out of the normal. It’s nothing more then just an old building and that’s it. But if someone really thinking its haunted I say u got 2 chooses u can try and prove it to me or 2 u can buy this oceanfront property I have down in az for real cheap too. But this place is not haunted in anyway shape or form. Sorry to break your hearts people.
