The following was sent to us when we asked to hear your paranormal experiences. Sit down and grab a drink. Here is the first of many paranormal experience stories that we are going to be posting in the future!
Source sent us the following in reference to their paranormal experience at a local bowling alley.
“I’m a mechanic at The Cherry Bowl (bowling alley) and I swear the back is haunted.
A lot of people have seen shadows and it’s very common to think someone is back there with you when there isnt. A few people think its because the one side wall is a giant painted ouija board on pegboard that we use to organize our marquee letters.
My most “wtf” moment was when I had a problem with a pair of lanes close to the ouija board wall. I pulled a chair close to the lanes to sit by them and monitor the problem.
It was a Saturday night and we had cosmic going on. I looked down at my phone to check the time. It was 11:11, I looked back up to the machines and I heard a creepy voice whisper my name in my ear.
I was leaning up against a stack of plywood/old doors and mechanics usually work alone. I was by the door to go up front so there was nobody that could’ve snuck back there without me knowing.
I said screw the lanes and went up front for the rest of the night (we close at midnight). There’s also an entry way off the mechanics area that goes back towards the staff bathroom and fridge.
If the lights aren’t on in that area and you walk by at night it sometimes gives you a heavy dread feeling……we usually keep that door closed now.
I make jokes about it being the souls of former employees whose hopes and dreams died there lol”
Note: For obvious reasons the stories told are from people that had an alleged paranormal experience and sent it to us and the story can not be confirmed.
Also it is .99 days this weekend at the bowling alley! Stop on in there and have fun and if you have a paranormal experience there, let us know!
We look forward to hearing your paranormal experiences!
