Before its untimely closure in 2011, Escape Theme Park Singapore used to be uber popular with the masses.
It was apparently haunted too, at least according to a guy who had used to work as a ride operator at the Theme Park.
On a Friday night at about 10pm, he was getting ready to cease the ride operations when all of a sudden 5 teenagers – three girls and two boys – came sprinting up the stairs. For some reason they each had a helmet in their hand, but the operator didn’t think much of it. Leaving the helmets outside the control room, they swiftly entered the ride.
They were quiet, strangely so since you wouldn’t really see quiet groups in an amusement park. In fact, not a single word was exchanged. Frowning but still not seeing anything out of the ordinary, the guy proceeded to give them the spiel. To his surprise, it wasn’t working, even though his leader had changed the batteries in the device that very day.
It was dark inside the ride, but he could see the teens sitting at the front row. Somewhat reassured, he went down to start the show, only to realize that the simulator had stopped and that both the doors were open.
Suspecting that somebody had pressed the emergency button, he quickly headed back, only to find the s simulator totally void. The helmets were missing from outside the control room too.
Upon further investigations, it turns out that years ago before the launch of the theme park, 5 teenagers have been riding their bicycles when they were killed by a stray piece of rubble that had slipped from a crane’s grasp.
