Paranormal Investigation Encounter At An Old Theme Park

13 August 2021 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I have been investigating and researching the paranormal for over 13 years. During this time, I have been to numerous locations where the activity was either low, high, or off the charts. On November 16th of 2016, I was asked by the owner of the defunct theme park, “Dogpatch USA” to investigate the parks former Administration Bldg as he had experienced voices, freezing cold wind in the summer time and had the ‘odd’ feeling he was not alone while inspecting the building’s grounds.

It was close to Midnight when I drove my daughters SUV (my other team mates were scattered about the park in other buildings.) to the front of the dilapidated  bldg. and carrying my recorder, camera, and small pen light, I walked down a small entranceway and entered the remains of the Bldg. This building when the park was open was where park goers could buy their tickets, get your park maps and other items before you went into the actual park. The building had sat exposed to the elements for over 23 years and was littered with debris and nature was slowing taking over the remains.  I went over to a broken desk and used one end to place my equipment. A cold wind was blowing and workers had put sheets up to help stop rain from coming in through the broken windows.  The flapping of the plastic sheets was noisy and a bit unnerving as it added an eerie sensation to the dark and musty room I was in.  But my experience occurred the minute I turned on my RCA recorder and started to ask a question.  The wind suddenly died off and all I heard was dead silence. But coming from a nearby short corridor, I heard the sound of heavy footsteps coming toward me.  No one was suppose to be in the area and being so isolated, I was completely alone. I was certain this was not a ‘spirit’ encounter and actually feared for my life as this section of the state of Arkansas is known for some rough customers so I yelled out, “Who’s there?  I have permission to be here.”  The footsteps stopped and I shined my light toward the corner of the hallway expecting a person to step around any second but I heard only dead silence. But in ghost hunting, you never let you guard down for before I could react, a shadow flew toward me and was immediately in my face.  It was a presence not so much seen, but the sensation was that of  a bully who wanted to intimidate me. I could sense an icy malevolent being which was old and not to be ‘jacked’  with. I immediately invoked the name of the Son of God and the dark shadowy figured backed off . I saw it for only a moment( tall, dark and dripping with hatred) and I tried to snap off a pic with my phone but it sensed my purpose and it was gone.

I was shaken by the experience and have not forgotten it.  We spent several hours trying to make contact that night but the being never came back.  To validate this story, I am enclosing my YouTube video with ‘evp’ captures from the park and the bldg. I was in that night.  Thank you and I hope you enjoyed this story.
