I live in New York, I've seen many other encounters with ghosts there. If you haven't read my other stories then you won't know what I've seen or heard. This story I'm about to tell happened in the very famous amusement park "Six Flags Great Adventure" in New Jersey.
I went there on June 27th for camp. All my friends in my group wanted to go on Kingda Ka, the fastest roller coaster on Earth. I was going to try it, but by the time we got up there, I chickened out. Five out of the seven kids in my group went, my counselor didn't go either. When two kids were on line, there were three in the carts all strapped up and ready to go (I was standing behind the gate by the exit on the other side, wishing them good luck).
One of my friends asked a kid in my group if they can sit next to them because there was another opened seat. They said sure. But when she sat down, she couldn't, something or someone was blocking her. So she just said she'll go when they get off. My friend wasn't even paying attention when this was happening, but I saw it happen. The chair pulled down the seat on it's own and strapped itself in! My friend sitting next to the "Automated" chair always screams really loud! She can't make herself stop, it sort of ruins the fun of the ride (no offense).
When the guy came around to check if everyone was good, he made a weird looking face at the chair that already was buckled. But he set the train off anyway. There they go, 150 feet into the air. Pretty high, but it's so fast you don't really notice how high you were. I was at the bottom and I can hear my friend screaming at the top of her lungs. When they made it back and got out I asked "How was it?" My friends said "AWESOME!" Before we left we had to remember to wait for the other two kids in my group. Now when they got in, the chair that had no one in it before was still there. Locked in. I watched it.
I took out my phone to see if there was anyone there, because if it was a ghost, it would come up on the camera. I turned to camera mode. My jaw dropped to the site. I couldn't even show my friends or take a picture I was so shocked. There, sitting in the seat, was a almost about 16 year old boy wearing a park uniform. I looked at him. He had his arms folded and looked pretty mad. I think he didn't enjoy his ride with my friend screaming at the tippy top on the roller coaster. I saw him get up, open the gate, walk right past me, up to the controls and press a button. The people working there said after awhile that the computer wouldn't make the trains go because it thinks that 3 seats aren't locked in even though they were. The ghost ruined everything for my friend, but at least when we walked past the ride again, it was working and they went on it again.
Now you would think that I would never see that 16 year old ghost again right? Wrong. The second time we went to Kingda Ka, I saw him sitting on the roof of where the trains were. My counselor went to the bathroom so no one saw me do this. Just like my name "GhostTalker13", I talk to ghosts. So I called the dude down, still holding my phone of course. So he came down and I told him to sit next to me and talk before my counselor got back from the bathroom. He said his name was Ricky. He used to work here 2 years ago. One day, when they were finally going to test Kingda Ka for the first time, no one wanted to do it. But he was brave enough to raise his hand and try it. He sat in that same seat he was sitting in before when I first saw him. And the people got it ready, he made the ready sign with his hand and off he went.
Everything was going as planned, except when it got to the top. It didn't have enough speed the train, so when it got to the top, it stopped. Then it rolled backwards really fast like 365 miles per hour with Ricky on it! When it got back to the station, the workers found Ricky dead. They had a burial for him, but he said that he just wanted to make sure everything is ok now with the ride so the whole rolling backwards thing doesn't happen again. He also told me why he played around with the computer before, he said he was so mad at the girl sitting next to him screaming! I told him that was my friend and she always does that. He said, it's ok now. So then he went back on Kingda Ka, and never saw him again.
If you haven't been to this amusement park, you're missing out on a lot of stuff. Also, before you enter Kingda Ka, there's a sign that says this:
"On occasion, Kingda Ka's train will not go over the hill. This is a Normal Occurrence. If it doesn't, it will safely go back down the hill slowly and stop in it's starting place and be ready to be launched again."
Now they have that sign!
