The weather in Western New York is typically quite mild. Every so often, the area is struck with a storm, but no storm can ever compare to what happened at Darien Lake just the other day.

It was a completely average day at Darien Lake; the water park was bustling with guests, Aaron Radatz was performing a magic show, and Red Hawk was sending brave guests soaring across the sky. All was normal. Around 3 O’clock, the light summer breeze suddenly turned into a strong wind. Just as SkyScreamer was reaching its peak, a lightning bolt came down from the completely clear sky and struck the top of Skyscreamer, electrocuting everyone on the ride. There were no survivors.

A few days later, after the park recovered from the horrific event, we began receiving strange reports from guests that while riding SkyScreamer they felt the air turn ice cold and misty. We ignored these reports as we did not think they were serious. A few hours later a woman was heard screaming and running around the park as if she had gone mad. Security tried to calm her down but she would not stop shouting that she had seen a ghost at the top of SkyScreamer. The eratic woman claimed that the ghost had flown right through her body. Unfortunately, she was not the only guest that had claimed to see ghosts flying around the top of SkyScreamer. It is believed that ghosts are now haunting guests as they spin around the ride.

Now this could all be a myth, but believing isn't always seeing. With Fright Fest quickly approaching the ghosts may want to have some fun and toy with the ride. Keep your eyes peeled, you may experience the ride like you never have before…
