  1. I went to Ryders and I think it is haunted. Even though I had a lovely time, I felt like eyes were watching me the entire time i was in the ladies room.

    Went to check it out, it has been torn down. Just an empty lot. The Salon next door said they are building a Taco Bell. I was heart broken!
