America's Most Haunted Amusement Park

Lake Shawnee Amusement Park in West Virginia has been abandoned since 1966, but these sinister events have transformed it into a playground for ghosts!

1.  The park was built on the site of an ancient Native American burial ground. 

2.  The land was also the location of a family massacre in 1783.

3.  The amusement park was built in the 1920s. Shortly after, a little girl was killed on the swing ride when a delivery truck backed into its path.

4.  A little boy drowned in the amusement park’s swimming hole.

5.  The park’s rides were responsible for a total of six deaths.

Lake Shawnee Amusement Park was featured on the TV Show “Scariest Places On Earth.”
