    1. I went here as a child for my cousin’s birthday party. I didn’t notice anything strange but it was a cool place. I was shocked to hear it was featured on Ghost Hunters since I didn’t known it was said to be haunted. Too bad I heard it got shut down, it would have been an interesting experience to go back and check the place out after all these years.

    2. I was there 2 weeks before they closed..it was a very busy day there. I remember sitting down in the kids block area with my eyes on my 6 year old and my 3 year old in front of me fussing. I felt what I thought was my husband sit down close to me. I didn’t turn quickly to look at him until I felt him blow in my hair…when I turned there was no one there. I gave it no attention since I had 2 young children with me ..until I saw my cell phone pictures . They all came out cloudy with white snow orbs..I got freaked n deleted a bunch but if I can find the memory card I’ll send them to you..honestly I never searched to see what was in the pictures because it made me unsettled..but I’m sure a trained eye would pick up images..
