Submission: More Cedar Point Ghost Pictures

10/13/2015:  Kim S. shares an alarming image she captured while taking pictures of her family.  Could it be a female spirit with an unexplained connection to the property, as one “medium” has theorized?

On August 27th, 2013, I captured this image by accident in one of the Cedar Point Cabins upon entering. I was taking pics to send to a friend of the cabin layout. I had just entered and asked my family to stand to the side so I could get uncluttered pics.

The television was off as we had just literally walked in – I have had it looked at by a well known Medium and he has validated it and claims it to be a woman with a connection to the property. 

The first two will be of the image that I captured (not knowing at the time), a zooming in of the face.

You can see my reflection snapping the pic in the photos (in the television) and then the spirit in there. Please note when reviewing my pics – the remote is clearly still sitting on top of the TV – as I stated, we had just walked in the door.

The next photos are ones I tried to take after seeing it to validate it and show the TV was off at the time and then with it on, etc. I also have a pic of where I was standing to show all angles and that the face blocked reflections of the futon couch.

There was no way of redoing that pic with the image – I tried to debunk it with my follow up photos – which clearly show our belonging having been moved into the upper loft, TV on and off and a shot of the space I stood in – in front of the window. It freaked us out.

I only noticed it was there about 20 minutes later when I zoomed into the photo to make sure my daughter had not stuck her tongue or “finger” out at me so I could forward to my friend in Colorado.

I haven’t been back since that trip – but am returning this weekend Oct 9-11, 2015 for Halloweekend. Wish me luck!!!

Submission: Cedar Point Ghost Boy

When you go to Cedar Point this summer, be sure to check out its newest ghostly attraction.  If you are confused about which Cedar Point ghost we are talking about, Rich shares photos to help you identify the right one:

My wife took these photos at our stay at the Breakers Inn at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio. In the first photo, a young boy is seen in the right side of the picture.  You can also see my wife’s reflection in the left. There was no little boy anywhere near her when she took this picture.

She then took another photo a few minutes later after she looked at the photo and saw what she captured.

My wife and I did a spur of the moment trip down to Moonville on October 16th, 2003.  It was my 4th trip to the tunnel.  We arrived around 5:45pm.  I first had to walk back through the rock cut site of the Dec. 26 1939 wreck.  Whenever I come to this wreck site, the temperature seems to drop at least 15 degrees.

Crybaby Bridge: Abbeyville Road

Not far from the Witch’s Ball, along Abbeyville Road near Medina, is this crybaby bridge, barely noticeable from the road.  Legend states that in the 1950’s, a young girl, in a desperate attempt to hide her pregnancy, threw her newborn baby into the river below.

Crybaby Bridge: Wisner Road

(Orig. Published 4/2004)

Wisner Road in Kirtland cuts through the heart of Melon Head country.  Drive beyond this bridge on the dirt road, and you will soon find yourself at a dead end.  Look closely, and you will see a foot trail that continues beyond the dead end….and  into the deep, dark woods.  In those woods along that trail, people say, lies the ruins of the original Melon Heads homestead.
