At Fuddrucker’s restaurant, formerly a Blockbuster Video, a haunt is rumored to reside. When it was Blockbuster, the ghost was rumored to activate battery-powered toys, turn lights on and off, open doors, and speak over the sound system, saying things like “shh… listen,” and “you’ve been bad.” Blockbuster Video was demolished in 2007 and Fuddrucker’s was built, but some attribute at least some of the hauntings to the fact that the area was a skate park in the 1980s and a boy broke his neck there.

This is bologna! I worked at Blockbuster for many years and it is not haunted.
They didn’t demolish the original building. They remodeled it. I grew up around the corner and remember when it was blockbuster but never got any bad vibes.
They didn’t demolish the building, just remolded. BUT, I worked at this location and it was definately haunted. I personally saw whole lines of video boxes fall on their own, sound activated toys activate themselves and strange shadows while closing the store.
I heard this myth along time ago crazy I hear about this 15 years or so later. Thanks for the information
