17 Theme Park Workers Share The Scariest and Creepiest Things That Have Happened during their Shifts

Guy lost his hat on a suspended rollercoaster and decided to climb the fence to get it back afterwards. Quite literally had his head kicked off by a lady on the ride as it went by, which also shattered her leg.

EDIT: Apparently this type of incident has happened more often than I'd like to think about. To stop all the guessing and save my inbox it was Raptor at Cedar Point.


Six Flags Magic Mountain. While stocking up one of the carts from within an unused, empty location I had a unexplainable experience. The location I was in used to be a restaurant that served pizza (Laughing Dragon near Superman if your familiar with the park). It's empty and void of life and only gets used on occasion for maybe some training. The tables that we're used for the restaraunt were stacked upside on one side. The tables were heavy, concrete topped tables and would take 2 guys to move them. Upon entering the location and beginning my inventory I felt uneasy and chalked it up to being tired and creeped cuz it was late. To get to the stock room, you have to pass by the dining area with the tables, and I did so without incident. After counting our overpriced ice creams, I turn around to head out the way I came and lock up. What met me as I turned around the dark corner freaked me out. Right there, blocking my exit, we're 3 tables sitting right side up and lined up obstructing my path. I called out if anyone was there and was met with silence. I simply turned around and ran to the back entrance and left the building from there. Afterwards, I explained to a co-worker how I was alone up there and heard absolutely no one and how the heavy as hell tables got moved and flipped so swiftly and silently. I was then later told that a little boy with a heart condition ran all the way up the hill racing his friends and essentially dropped dead right in front of that restaurant, probably 10 feet from where the incident occurred. I hate closing at night now.
