Haunted Cedar Point

Check out these 3 entries on this web site about haunted ohio: theshadowlands.net/places/ohio.htm

Has anyone ever heard of these... although I'm not a big believer in ghosts ... the Hotel Breakers story seems to be the only one that could hold up as true.

Cedar Point - Amusement Park - The carousel in the park is an old one, with hand carved horses. Legend has it that the man who carved the horses for the carousel caught his wife cheating on him with a jockey from the local horse track. He shot and killed them both for their infidelity. There is a black horse on the carousel with bones carved into his mane, and the image of a jockey is carved into the saddle of another horse. Employees have reported hearing the music of the carousel at night while it spins backwards. They have also reported leaving it at night and arriving the next morning to find the horses in different positions.- November 2003 update: The carousel did not originate in Ohio it is actually from Michigan, near Lake Lansing. The locals there believe that Al Capone used to torture people on the carousel and then dump their bodies into the lake, which is where the haunting actual begins.

Sandusky - Cedar Point - a young woman walking past CJ's Provisions in the Frontier Trail. Anyone working in that stand has reportedly felt someone there or has apparently seen someone walking by the doors when they are closed before the season begins. Legend has it that a young woman walks up and down frontier trail looking for her boyfriend / husband in that area. Strange things have happened in CJ's. If you leave a sponge on the sink in the fudge area and leave to go and do something, like take your break or go outside to get something and you come back and your sponge is gone. No one else has taken it or even seen where it went to. Then when you go back, sometimes the sponge reappears in the same place that you last left and there are only 2 of you in the stand. (I have first hand experience with this since I've worked there this past 2003 season).

Sandusky - "Hotel Breakers - To get the story straight on Hotel Breakers (it was probably a seasonal employee making something up about Fridays) There are two known reoccurring instances of hauntings in Hotel Breakers. Hotel Breakers has now four sections all of which were built at different places in time, the oldest and still central being of the hotel is "The Rotunda" which is named so for its circular five floored circular structure of which live it's majority of rooms. "The Lobby" is a two story structure in which contain offices and old meeting rooms on the first floor of such, second floor has rooms that were once guest rooms, now employee dwellings. this is that which we are most interested in for in one of the two second floor hallways is room #169. The very room in which during the early 1900's when the park was still just a beach resort, a guest by the name of Mary hung herself in dismay (supposed to that of a lover), hung herself in her room. Since then, Employee and guest alike have had odd occurrences, disturbances, violent unseen actions, noises, problems with electronics occur. The third oldest portion of the hotel "Breakers East" Which in itself wasn't built until the mid 90's and is portioned into three and four floors. The occurrences in this section were sightings of "Faceless apparitions" in a small combination of number. All other sightings and instances are not known as re-occurring and random. The whole park is rumored to be haunted, and also rumored to have been built on a native burial ground.

I never heard of the second one but the other twos yes. They did this exhibit thing for Halloweekends a couple years about the first story. Not sure if they did it last year though might of stopped when Fright Zone got expanded.

Thats right they did stop that exhibit, but it was a neat one. I think the carousel story is about the old frontier carousel (UR dade), and one of the horses are in the town hall. I have been told that the eyes on that horse will get cloudy. But, I do not know how much truth there is behind that.

yeah, I heard about those haunted stories from the old hotel. i have stayed there before and loved the place! My sister works at the hotel lakeside and has haunted stories about it.

They also did some sort of a murder mystery game for guests at the Breakers last year.

anyone know any haunted stories about the go-kart tracks....having to do with engines turning themselves on during the middle of the night?

I'm too sexy for my harness!

Here is a thread I posted a long time ago regarding an experience I had with the haunted Breakers room:

I have heard that there is more in the carousel horse than just bones, gruesome details which I won't post here but the details of which can be found in different versions of the story...

As far as the carousel turning on by itself, there are many employee testemonials regarding that, among eye witness reports, so who knows...I guess it depends on what you believe in.

I'm really skeptical about any of these stories. The carousel turning on by itself could just be an intermitant electrical problem. Go-karts turning themselves on in the middle of the night? Most likely someone forgot to turn them off at closing time.

I've stayed in Breakers East since the year it was built. Never saw anything even remotely strange or ghost like. The "faceless apparitions" most likely appeared after someone had one too many at TGIFridays

I'd love to see some concrete evidence of any of these hauntings. Most likely these are just stories passed down through the years, and some people's imaginations just got the best of them after listening to the stories.

I'd rather be in my boat with a drink on the rocks,
than in the drink with a boat on the rocks.

If your interested in seeing something creepy or haunted. Pick an open Sunday and head (straight down 13) to the Ohio State Reformatory and take a tour. I give tours there and since the first sunday in May when we start working, something ridiculous has happened every Sunday. Guaranteed to be a good time.

Why is every carousel out there haunted and turning on by itself at night? Typical story. At least this one just comes on. The Kennywood one supposedly screams while turning backwards.

I've stayed the Breakers at least once in every part (tower, east, etc) and I'm yet to see anything more strange than a flickering light.

It's called Millennium Force, not "Millenium" Force. Thanks.

You want concrete evidence? Spend a night in the Mansfield Reformatory. 'Nuff said.

You can actually do that? That would be so cool... can you give me a link for it?

You have to be 21 to do it, and I believe its $50. Coming from someone who works there (me), its bad enough during the day. If you acutally go though, send me a PM and I'll tell you all the good places to see in there.

I have personally seen the eyes cloudy one day and then clear the next. I even posted a story a while ago. Though I can't seem to find it :(

If you guys want to see a haunted amusement park head over to Conneaut Lake Park. I have had alot of experiences there.

One of my Ex. Co workers was running our Bluestreak Rollercoaster and was reading a book about the ghosts of CLP and It said weird thing happened on the day that a sailor was beheaded in the 40's when he stood up on the Bluestreak and she said I wonder when the day is and right at that exact second the lift shut off and the train was stuck on the lift. I recently found out that happens every year on that day.

And a bunch others while staying in the Parks hotel.

^ sounds scary

and what evidence Pete? People don't really ever get any evidence on anything about hauntings. You wanna try then go get ur own evidence. Made up or not it's still cool to know that theirs a chance that Cedar Point is haunted.
