Where do people get these things?

So, a good friend of mine sent me the link from the El Paso Times article about the arrest of several people inside the park and I have to say, where are you people coming up with these ideas?

So, I began some research into this urban legend and wouldn't you know I found a forum where it talks about ghosts and Magic Landing. Problem is, these not-so-bright persons posted it on a city website. Now, whether or not these individuals found this website or another, who knows.

Of course, the proper thing to do would have been to contact the property owner to see if he would grant a rag-tag team of amateur investigators with little to no tools to test the scientific explanations behind the rumors and conjecture found on an internet posting that the property that has not seen a paid customer is over 20 years has a ghost problem reported by other "investigators" that felt spooked being inside the park illegally.

That makes perfect sense to me. Why on earth did the property owners not give them permission to- oh, wait, thats right. He never got asked.

People, use some common sense. If you tried to get into a piece of property that had caught fire under suspicious circumstances, you should think that there might be extra efforts looking into the well being of the remainder of the park.

When it caught fire, did I want to go down to the park and see what the hell happened? Yes. I wanted to like nobody's business. I talked myself out of going, just cause I didn't want to see what's left. What few photos I snagged with my camera that day are all I have, and as long as I'm told there are photos out there of the parks existence, that is what will drive me to continue with this site.

Please, for your safety AND sake of no criminal records, don't break in.

I know this is hypocritical of me to say, but do as I say, not as I did.

I worked at Magic Landing from before it opened to the public, and there were several times that things happened that I could not explain. Strange things.

On many occasions, the Rainbow ride which I operated would just start back up after going through its full cycle. Once, I was literally standing at the front of the ride to push the button on the platform to open the lap restraints, and the ride just started up again. Went completely haywire. Yes, with people on it.

Who knows if it is/was haunted.

They say that a little boy was killed in the "wheel of fortune." What that ride is I don't know. It does not make sense to me as there would be real evidence of something big like that. Where did they get this from?
