The Haunted Playground In West Virginia That Will Send Shivers Down Your Spine

Some places in West Virginia are almost expected to be haunted – an abandoned insane asylum, sure; an old cemetery, definitely – but a place of fun and joy that’s become dark and creepy inspires an ironic fear that is hard to shake. This is Lake Shawnee Amusement Park and its bloody history…
