The Bosses at Thorpe Park in the UK have been forced to relocated one of its new rides , the Storm Surge had to be moved due to reports from workers of paranormal goings on .

Staff building the water ride at Thorpe Park said they had encounted several strange phenomena, including what appeared to be a headless monk. There were reports of objects being moved, workers feeling like someone was watching over their shoulders and sudden cold feelings being experienced.


Paranormal expert Jim Arnold, who carried out tests at the site, 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."

They should build a haunted house on the site instead

There was a headless monk reported in Shepparton who was seen also in Chertsey, last seen 1940's. He left the Monastery to live with a local women, and he was beheaded for his efforts. His ghost apparently walks around headless near where the old farm was located (in Chertsey) still trying to escape his pursuers.

Chertsey is where Thorpe Park is.

Read it in a british forklore book...Make of it what you will

Indeed, the ONLY EXPLANATION for "orbs" and photo anomalies and ouija board activity COULD BE the disturbing of an ancient burial ground.

I'm so glad we have a guy like this in charge, pinning down the case with an air-tight explanation.

Where do you think the Sun got the story from? Oh right a press release from Thorpe Park.

It's probably a publicity stunt, but at least the theme park went out of their way to go whole hog and get in an 'investigator'.

You're right about it being a publicity stunt. I spoke to friends today who have worked at Thorpe Parks for years and that's their opinion too. They'd never heard a thing about any haunting till the story broke in today's news, and they're finding it hilarious.

They'll probably just play off it for their Fright Nights at Haloween. "Now with real ghosts!"
