A Paranormal Experience In Room 217 At The Stanley Hotel

23 June 2017 | Audible Activity, Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

While staying the night in room 217 at the Stanley Hotel in Estes Parks, Colorado, my partner and I experienced three strange events we will probably remember for the rest of our lives. When you hear about the Stanley Hotel, you probably think of Stephen King’s horror novel called The Shining, or Stanley Kubrick’s horror film also called The Shining. However, in addition to a famous book and film, the hotel also has had a reputation for decades of reported ghost activity . Claims of paranormal activity have attracted visitors from around the world. In 1974, famous horror writer Stephen King stayed the night in room 217. Interestingly, his stay at the Stanley had inspired him to write his famous horror novel The Shining. It is also the room where

The Shadow That Absorbed Light

20 June 2017 | Haunted locations, Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Hi, my name is Shawn, I’m a Christian, born and raised in south eastern Pennsylvania. There have been a few “interesting” events in my life that one could say touch on the unexplained or super natural. Somewhere back around 1996 – 1997 I had two separate events that shook me pretty good, then a third later in life around 2003. The first took place at work, I was a shipper for a small company; my work area was in the basement of an old building. The building was one of those old 3 story industrial brick buildings that you’d have to walk upstairs to get to the first floor. The basement was only 3 feet below ground level and that is where I spent 8 hours of my day, Monday

The Most Haunted Hotel in the USA?

14 June 2017 | Haunted locations, Your True Encounters

Staying at the Chicago Congress Plaza Hotel and Convention Center doesn’t sound like a great idea based on some of the reviews I read. We walked into the lobby of this hotel and thought how beautiful it looked. We were very excited. However, the were very few people working the desk and check-in took a long time. Finally after getting our key we went up to our room. Since the lobby looked fantastic, we thought our room would be too. However, as we unlocked the door to our room we were very disappointed. The room was very dimly lit with one lightbulb in the middle of a very high ceiling. The wallpaper was coming off the walls, and the curtains were falling off their rods. The carpet in the room

The Hatman

07 June 2017 | Haunted locations, Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

One night, when I was about 13 or 14, I was lying in bed in that half-asleep state before you really doze off. I was staring at my wall that faced the front of my house and it was very dark. Suddenly, I saw a figure walk through my wall towards me. I could tell my his shape that he was a man, but I saw no other distinguishable features other than it seemed as if he was wearing a long cloak and a flat rimmed hat. I was kind of frozen as I watched him move closer. He came right next to me, bent down and kissed the top of my head and it felt like ice had touched me. That snapped me out of my stupor and I

The Haunted School

05 June 2017 | Haunted houses, Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Cornelius Piros is a young man from Malaysia that I met in Nagoya through mutual friends. He had been a practicing medical doctor in Malaysia before he took a year sabbatical to come to Japan and learn the Japanese language. After meeting him at a series of parties and social events, he came to be a good friend with my wife and I, coming to our home in Nagoya many times for dinner parties, BBQs, and so on. Cornelius’ encounter with Japanese ghosts occurred in Malaysia when he was a student. I was a student at the Anglo Chinese School in Ipoh, Malaysia. It was a high school with a long history, built in 1893. At the time, I was living in the school dorm, in the student hostel called

Hotel Poltergeist

17 May 2017 | Haunted locations, Poltergeist, Your True Encounters

Imagine checking into your hotel room only to experience poltergeist activity? No? Well, the Holiday Inn Express in Leeds City Center apparently has poltergeist – at least according to this Tripadvisor reviewer.. This hotel is great value for money and is ideally situated in the centre of Leeds and no more than a 20 min walk to most places that you will want to visit. The bar area is fine and the breakfast cooked and the basic fayre that you would expect. The rooms are of ample size and the bed was very comfortable. Service from the hotel team was great throughout. Two things let it down for us and hence not five stars: – There were only decaf coffee sachets in the room and after a heavy night out,

A Haunted Classroom?

11 May 2017 | Audible Activity, Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This happened in 1966 when I was ten. It isn’t very dramatic, but it was quite scary enough for me. I was at a convent boarding school in the United Kingdom. The school was shaped like a Z with the fourth-year classroom at the bottom right at ground level with the third-year classroom between it and the rest of the school. A long corridor ran from the fourth-year classroom and past the third. It had a window at the top, but above my height so I couldn’t actually see into the classroom. At weekends the children could watch television after dinner and before bed. Toward the end of dinner, two girls would be sent to the third-year classroom to put chairs out, as this was where the only television set

A Haunted Vegas Hotel

20 April 2017 | Haunted locations, Your True Encounters

They say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas but not apparently when it comes to the happenings at the Luxor …. Here are two accounts of ghostly experiences by people who stayed there. Me and my 18 month old son stayed in room 19-207. Let me start off by saying my son is a great baby and is very loving and never gives me hard time. We arrived on Monday. Our Suite was amazing, and we loved it. As soon as I unpacked, my son started to act unlike himself. He was biting me, hitting me, and pulling my hair. He tried to scratch my eyes out. He started to hit himself, pull his own hair and eyelashes. He pulled his ears and bit himself, then he tried to destroy

18 April 2017 | Haunted locations, Your True Encounters

Living in the Czech Republic, it is not difficult to collect ghost stories from the country and I can tell you, it is a country full of tales, myths, and legends. There are many ghosts stories about Prague of course. Wether these are true, half truths for the tourist or even just myth, they can be very entertaining. Here is an example.

He became engaged to a pretty young Czech woman and then returned to his homeland to ask his parents‘ permission to marry her. As the Turk was gone for a quite a long time, his fiancée, hearing nothing of him, began to believe that he had died, or that he

The Mounting Block

03 April 2017 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Almost forgotten in the small village of Charing, at the junction of The Hill, and Pett Lane, stands an ancient white stone mounting block with three time worn steps. You may have to search a little if you wish to see this, as during the summer months it becomes overgrown with weeds and the growing branches of a hedge close by. It is an interesting reminder of the old days of Tudor Charing, when it was first placed here for the convenience of riders in the village, just a few yards up from the old blacksmiths workshop and forge. Few of todays present villagers even know it is there, or indeed what it is, and even fewer have heard the story attached to it, a story of a young highwayman

The Flying Ghosts of Headcorn and Lashenden – Spectres with Wings.

23 March 2017 | Audible Activity, Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

The sound of throbbing engines is never far away from the busy Kent village of Headcorn. Its charming high street is always crowded with cars and motorcycles, as it is still a very commercial place of small shops, offices, supermarkets and banks, set either side of a road that leads from Maidstone to Tenterton  and from there, on to the coast at Rye. This is a very pretty road and a favourite with both sports car enthusiasts and bikers, as it winds its  meandering way across the countryside, I drive it a lot myself, a most enjoyable trip in a fast open car in early spring’ before the roads get tangled with tourists. High above the village, in the warm summer skies, still more engines can be heard, as Headcorn

The Haunting of Victorville Base, California

04 March 2017 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

For much of my life I worked as a barber at a military base in California. When I first started at Victorville I noticed the frame on my mirror was broken. I thought nothing of it at first as there were several hairdressers, and sometimes we would grab the nearest mirror on our way to wax a client, or a client in general would use one. So, I assumed someone had accidentally broken it. No sweat. I was issued another one but within a week the same thing happened. My boss questioned me in a joking manner as to how I kept breaking the frames. I joked back that at least it wasn’t the mirror and so no “bad luck” x 14, but in all seriousness, I had not caused

A Haunted Anniversary

20 February 2017 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Today we return to the reviews on Tripadvisor.com and to The Town House, Durham, England. It appears that one couple celebrating their anniversary had an experience they might like to forget……. My partner and I stayed for our anniversary, for one night. We booked the nautical room which was very cramped- especially for the price we paid. The location is very central, and ideal for seeing Durham. Overall, the hotel is well furnished and maintained, however, one word of warning, the room we stayed in was haunted! I must be the most sceptical person in the world- never believed in such things, however, clear as day a figure was next to the bed! (defiantly not associated with any alcohol) after my partner ‘felt’ someone/ something in the room- I turned

A Ghostly Battle In A Storm..

17 February 2017 | Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My Dad told me this creepy story several times when I was growing up. His childhood wasn’t so great and so he liked to escape at weekends or whenever he could. His best friend, Jack, and he, loved to cycle, camp and hike around East Yorkshire and that’s what they did just anytime they could. It was the years directly after the war and there was little traffic or other people to bother them. One night, they pitched their small two-man tent in a farmer’s field near Long Marston. They knew very well that, in the vicinity, many years ago, a battle had taken place there during the English Civil war – The battle of Marston Moor. It was partly why they were there as they both had a love

The Tasmanian Hotel That Used to be A School…

07 February 2017 | Audible Activity, Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

The Rydges Hotel, Hobart, Tasmania was apparently a converted school. One visitor sensed the kids may still be there. Here is his review from tripadviser.com. The hotel looks nice enough from out side and was a long way out of the city centre. It has all the amenities one expects form a 4 star. The first thing I noticed was there was hardly any cars in the carpark and also not many guests in the hotel at all, the bar and restaurant were all empty even at breakfast time. The hotel has a nice view of the oval, but an eerie vibe. Believe what you like, but at 440am I awoke to what I thought was the sound of Kids playing in the room next door; thumping a ball against
