Bosses at Thorpe Park in Surrey have had to relocate on one of the rides after workers complained of paranormal activity at the site.
Staff at the theme park working on the new ride complained that they had seen what appeared to be a headless monk, and that they had encountered several other strange feelings.
The ride, which will be a new 20meter tall water ride, was being built on a site called Monk’s Walk, but will be relocated after bosses called in paranormal activity experts to check out the findings.
Some staff had complained they felt they were being watched, and felt sudden cold feelings.
The experts believe that the building may have upset an ancient burial ground, and the footpath it was built on has links back to the year 666 AD and connected Chertsey Abbey and Thorpe Church.
Stone coffins have previously been removed from the site, and 15 meter deep foundations would have been dug deep into the ground.
One of the experts, Jim Arnold said, Results were picked up immediately, with orbs, ghostly images in photography and ouija reaction results being strongest around the site where they were proposing to build Storm Surge.
“The results were so strong we felt the only explanation could be that an ancient burial ground or settlement was being disturbed, prompting the extra paranormal activity.”
The parks bosses have now bought in Peter Masters, a forensic geophysicist, who said, “From the preliminary investigations, we have picked up signatures similar to that of a burial ground – possibly ancient.
“Although this could simply be an old building, with Thorpe Park’s history the investigation is definitely worth continuing.”
