Lake Shawnee Amusement Park is an abandoned park in WV. The property has been experiencing tragedy long before the 1700s. now it sits completely abandoned with a rusted swing ride and Ferris wheel. Lets find out why some call this the most terrifying place in the US. We will also be learning the quick history of the Chupacabra.

 

Due to this episode being so short I am also posting a bonus episode that I made for my Patreon page. "Island of the Dolls" So please keep an eye out for that one to be uploaded soon.
