West Virginia’s abandoned Lake Shawnee Amusement Park is going to be opening up for guided tours starting October 25 and running through Halloween.  Lake Shawnee Amusement Park closed in 1966 after several incidents inside the park.  These incidents included a  the death of a little girl on the mechanical swings and a drowning death in Lake Shawnee.  Some paranormal investigators have visited the site and claim to hear children laughter and the swings moving all on their own.

The park is also said to be built on a former Native American burial ground, and was the site of a huge massacre of settlers.

Cameras and audio recorders are allowed during the tours, so if you are in the area, be sure to bring your camera along to snap some photos of this creepy abandoned amusement park.
