I am Bill Brown and I am the tech manager, lead investigator and data analyst for the Full Moon Paranormal Society. We are a small group of investigators who have all been either present or past employees of Six Flags St. Louis. Our web site is www.jwbserv.com/ghost. I should mention that Six Flags St Louis and its management are not in any way responsible for anything said on the web site or in this article.
We believe there are at least five ghosts at Six Flags. We think we know what their names are but Six Flags doesn't want us using their names. Since I like my job I will honor their wishes and avoid using their names except for Bob the Pigman who has been featured in the annual October Fright Fest.
For years people have said the lady of the theaters' name is Stella. I can tell you that the lady of the theaters is not named Stella. The lady of the theaters is most often seen at the Empire Theater but has been seen at the Palace Theater and in the courtyard behind the Palace. She was seen one night by two security officers as she was walking across the courtyard and up the stairs to the door of security office where she disappeared. There is also a male ghost seen and heard in the same areas as the lady. He seems to be angry all the time whereas she is friendly and has been known to talk to people unless you call her Stella. She has been known to get quite angry when she is called Stella. We think we know why she doesn't like that name but because of Six Flgs policy we must let the subject go.
The little girl we call the little girl of the Arbors. These arbors are located between Thunder River and the Colossus Ferris Wheel. She has been heard giggling throughout the park but most sightings have been in the arbors after closing time. She is about 8 to 10 years old wearing a yellow dress with white puffy sleeves. We think she was the one who left muddy footprints near the Ranger Pilot's kiddy airplane ride in 2009. We also think that the day after leaving the footprints she intervened and saved a baby from possibly serious injury. I am going to attach one of the photos of the footprints.
The fourth known ghost is the one haunting the Mine Train roller coaster. Last year while there were only operators present and the power was turned off the loading gates opened and then closed. We had been talking about the ghost just prior to the incident. We try to not say bad things about that ghost because she has been known to cause a shutdown of the ride when she has been angered.
The fifth known ghost is Bob the Pigman. He is supposed to be the pig farmer that owned the property before Six Flags was built. He and his pigs have mostly been heard on the back roads in the park. He was blamed for some equipment damage when the Boss roller coaster was being built. For some reason he was not happy about the new construction.
Sometimes some of the ghosts can be a pain in the butt but none of the ghosts have ever done anything to harm a guest or an employee. I feel good when I am operating the kiddy rides because I believe that the little girl is helping keep the children safe.
