Hello ATS! I’ve been a long time Observer of the site and just recently signed up, iv been racing to reach the minimum amount of posts to create my
own thread in order to bring you guys a event that I am still unable to wrap my mind around. Let me start off by assuring all of you that everything
to follow is 100% legitimate. I swear to god/ my mother’s life / on the holy bible/ (insert assuring words here) that I have in NO way edited or
altered the photos I am sharing with you (outside of Brightness and Contrast).
A little bit about me. I have been fascinated by the paranormal sense a young child, I have already participated in countless paranormal
investigations but unfortunately most of them are subject to trespassing in abandon building and wondering around graveyards at this point. During the
period of the investigation I am about to share with you, I was currently leaving near Orlando FL. I have sense moved north to near Boston and unable
to continue my research on this particular location. Never in my past investigations have I ever come away with such a amazing single piece of
evidence. I have been sitting on this story for 28 months; I have only shared the photos with a handful of personal friends.
In June 2010 while at my daytime job in Orlando, a coworker told me about a place called Splendid China. Splendid china is a abandon theme park in
Orlando Fl that closed in 2003. She told me a story about a trip she took there with some friends, she experienced things mostly like voices and
shadows, but it was enough to make me want to check it would for myself.
On June 19th 2010 Saturday, my coworker, my best friend, and myself headed out to Splendid China. We parked about a half mile away in a Sub-Division
nearby, walked along the road and once the coast was clear we jumped the gate. We wondered around the park for about 3 hours. My friend brought with
him his Canon 24 Megapixel camera (I think that’s the MP). I had him take pictures of EVERYTHING in every direction; we ended up with 280 photos
from the night. We also had a Sony night shot camcorder and a voice recorder. The camcorder ran the entire time but did not yield anything
interesting, the voice recorder also did not turn up anything worthwhile. I spent over 30 hours going though everything from that night. The camera
yielded two interesting pictures that showed something like something like white mist in shame of a distorted person. But then there was one other
photo that made care less about all the others. I have some ideas, but honesty don’t know what I am looking at here, it is absolutely mind boggling.
I do not have any good photo editing software, all I used to put these together was Microsoft Office Picture Editor and Paint to crop the images.
First let me show you the original photo after brightening it a little bit.
What you are looking at here is a manmade cave. A rock face with an entrance on the left and another on the right out of frame. The entrance on the
left is where we are looking, that should just be a empty hole. But there is something there…some kind of face…
This next picture is a zoomed in cropped img. I left the edges of the cave entrance in for perspective.
Same image but slightly zoomed in more. And brightness/ contrast enhanced a little more.
This is absolutely incredible, this is not what I expected to find. I have never seen a face that looks like this anywhere before. To me it appears to
be a face with pointy ears, a sharp mouth/chin, And HUGE Black Eyes. Im not sure what to make of the brighter spot on the top of the head, its almost
like a fluff ball or something. It almost appears to have a very evil grin, I can even make out the nostrils.
This is a cropped image all the way zoomed in on the face.
Okay, so there no way I could say this is something real unless I did some debunking research on this. Splendid China is of course a place that is
heavy broken into by teenagers, mostly skateboarders, there is a lot of videos on YouTube of kids skateboarding around the park and smashing random
things throughout the park (punks). For that reason there is TONS of graffiti everywhere in the park, this was my first thought of what it could be.
Also this is a Chinese Themed theme park so there is different kinds of statues around, this is also a possibility, this face seemed to good to be
true. So there was only one solution, I had to go back!
On June 22 2010, Tuesday. I returned to the park with the same two people and one extra friend. We headed straight back to the cave. To my surprise
there was no graffiti or statues. I will show you the photos that are corresponding in distance, then as well some close up ones of the cave entrance
itself. ADVISED, my friend with the camera did not want to return to the park so I had to do some slight blackmail=P but for this reason he did not
care as much about the photos, they are not as good angled as I would like them to be, and not in perfect focus, but they still show my point.
Again the photos have been brightened.
Zoomed in and cropped
The next two photos are closer up on the entrance
So if it’s not something naturally explainable and truly is paranormal, what is it. Obviously this is not a normal ghost photo. It’s not a human
face. I have done some research into the area, unfortunately the internet does not have much to provide on the exact geographical history, as far as I
can find. But it is known that much of Florida used to be Native American territory. Before I made my first trip to the location, two separate
individuals told me that they heard that during the construction of the park, there were dozens of Indian graves unearthed that was relocated nearby
outside of the park. I have sense been unable to find anything online to back this up, but it is certainly not unheard of in central fl. Even during
the construction of a underground pool at my old house in Orlando, two unmarked native American graves were found. So with this said, could this be
something Indian related? One person said that it reminds them of a ceremonial mask.
SO THERE WE GO! That’s all I can think of to share with you guys! Feel free to ask me absolutely any questions about this, I happily share all that
I know. The biggest reason I am sharing this with the great people of ATS is because I would like to know more about what I caught here. If anyone
that has access to better photo editing software then I will happily share the completely unedited photo, although it is 9MB in size, if you Private
message me I will gladly email you the photo. As well I look forward to hearing if anyone can dig up some good history on this location.
P.S. I am very disappointed on how these photos turned out on here, i had to edit them down inside to fit under 500KB. I think i could of done a
P.S.S. I don't know if its related, it was probably just my mind playing tricks on me. But in the coming weeks after i discovered the photo, while
laying in bed in a dark room, i could swear i could see the face in the corner of the room starring at me, when i closed my eyes i could make it out,
and a few times it appeared in my dreams. it was probably just because i spent so much time talking about and obsessing over the photo.
