Ghost Hunters Recap: The Spirits Of Sylvan Beach Amusement Park

February 27, 2013 08:51 PM by Ryan Haidet

The roller coaster might make you scream, but it’s the Sylvan Beach Park’s ghosts that will surely send chills down your spine.  The TAPS team found themselves at the small amusement park in Sylvan Beach, New York surrounded by carnival-style rides searching for proof of the paranormal in the mid-season finale of Ghost Hunters.  It was the perfect location for a spooky investigation.  What evidence did they find?  Scream inside this article to find out!

Sylvan Beach Park marks the second time TAPS has investigated at an amusement park after previously searching for spirits at Kings Island in Cincinnati, Ohio several seasons back.  The major difference?  Sylvan Beach Park is a much smaller location, which also gave off a freakier vibe.  The hauntings at the park are tied to a trio of ghosts known as Abby, Scotty and Jack.  Abby, who is also known as the Lady in White, is somebody many believe died in a fire that happened at the park.  Scotty is the ghost of a former maintenance worker who was found dead in one of the park’s buildings.  Finally, Jack was a game attendant who lived in one of the site’s apartments.

Once again, the show has found an outstanding location mixed with perfectly creepy tales.  Trouble is, that’s about all this episode had to offer.

As the investigation began, Britt and KJ reluctantly boarded one of the park’s dizzying rides to see if they could recreate a spooky story in which somebody spotted a ghost while spinning on the attraction.  Although they didn’t see any ghosts, it definitely made Britt a bit wobbly.  Throughout the investigation, various members of the team heard strange knocking sounds and their techy, beeping gadgets went haywire a couple of times.  At one point, Britt claimed he saw something lean out and look at them not long before KJ watched a shadow walk by.  But of course, there was no evidence beyond their claims.

After reviewing the evidence, they noticed several pieces of strange audio recordings they captured.  None of them were clear voices, but the multiple whistling sounds were definitely strange.  Although I wasn’t too impressed with the final result, the park’s owner was psyched with everything he heard because he believed the whistling was coming from Scotty’s ghost.

That’s a wrap on Ghost Hunters for several weeks because new episodes don’t return to SyFy until this April.

What did you think of this episode?  Did any of the evidence impress you?  Do you believe in ghosts?  Do you have any strange experiences with paranormal activity?  Do you miss having Grant Wilson investigating on the show or are you getting used to things without him?  Sound off and leave a comment below!
