Haunted Bowling Alley's Are There Such A Thing?

 

Bowling with a Ghost?

 

Please double click image for a larger view To see the ghost.

Description and Date of Incident: I took this picture on Saturday, August 1, 2009. If you look between the two guys on the right end, it is obvious that there is an additional person in the group. A group of co-workers gathered for a few games of bowling and decided to take a group photo. The "person" seen between the two guys was NOT there when I took the picture. I didn't realize that there was someone "extra" until I got home and reviewed the pictures.

Bowling is a sport in which players attempt to score points by rolling a bowling ball along a flat surface either into objects called pins or to get close to a target ball. There are many forms of bowling, with one of the most recent being ten-pin bowling and the earliest dating back to ancient Egypt. Other places where bowling was first seen were ancient Finland and Yemen, and in 300 A.D. in Germany. The first standardized rules were established in New York City, on September 9, 1895.[ Today, bowling is enjoyed by 95 million people in more than ninety countries worldwide and continues to grow through entertainment mediums such as video games for home consoles and hand held devices.

BY DANNY "10 pin" KRAY

I have always had two passions in my life the first is bowling and the second is Paranormal Phenomena. I have been an avid bowler since I was a child of seven. My mother brought me there to our local bowling alley in Rochester, New York every Saturday until I was old enough to go their by public transit myself. I am now 45 years old and still love the sport dearly. I still haunt bowling alleys today but I also search them for real ghosts.

We have all heard the many urban legends of the guy in the back the pin setters ghost who was killed when a stray ball hit him in the head. Many around the world still blame him for making them miss a pin. Or what about the ghost in the Bowing machine that haunts Blackpool England's famous park. And perhaps you've heard the many tales of haunted bowling balls. And of how their former owners ghosts are haunting the lanes and making the ball flip into the gutter because they don't like that you are using their ball! Or the ghosts who's shoes your wearing makes you slip or drop it on your foot?

In my life I even loved the sport so much I got a job working at the lanes. I would be their many nights after closing hours. And in this land of smelly shoes and broken pins I met a ghost.

We all know that many bowlers are superstitious individuals. From how they dress to how they prepare to throw a ball. To wearing their lucky shoes or going crazy just because somebody who should not have came right up and touched the ri balls. (no pun intended. "Many amateurs and professional bowlers will bowl with two balls.") Bowling they say is not just a game of skill it has to deal with luck and your mental composure. And we all know how frustrating it is when bowling because of the intense emotions it brings out in individuals.

Bowling is an anaerobic type of physical exercise, similar to walking with free weights. Bowling helps in burning calories and works muscle groups not usually exercised. The flexing and stretching in bowling works tendons, joints, ligaments, and muscles in the arms and promotes weight loss. Apart from the physical benefits it also has psycho-social benefits, strengthening friendships or creating new ones in groups. Many bowling teams today carry names like the Ghost Ball Busters. And yes the team also hunts for real ghost in their spare time between frames. the visit haunted houses, cemeteries and of course the haunted bowling alley they frequent.

The Ghost Hunters 'went to Somerville, Mass at Sacco's Bowl Haven. Yes. A bowling alley and pool hall. Jason and Grant began the hunt in the billiard room by playing pool, in near total darkness, while challenging the ghosts to come out and play with them. When that didn't work they moved on to a string of bowling. Again, nothing.

Suffice it to say, the TAPS team was able to debunk every paranormal claim of the owners, with the segment ending with a statement from Grant that the owner seemed to appreciate all the hard work they put into debunking the site. Which, while true, still got a laugh out of me considering the majority of their debunking included shooting pool, bowling and doing their plumbing job and discovering that the 'odd breathing noise' was in fact a leaking toilet.

While I do love Ghost Hunters, they seriously have not been having much luck lately. How I long for the days of the St. Augustine lighthouse with it's shadowy, stair-climbing entity. Or Eastern State Penitentiary with its coat-grabbing guy or that shadowy cloaked figure. But I suppose it's a little hard to get ghosts to hit their cue and perform while the cameras are running. So, I'll continue to watch faithfully each week and hope for the best.

At this alley, something eerie?

Excerpts from http://www.boston.com/news/local/articles/2009/03/01/at_this_alley_something_eerie/

 

A frustrated candlepin novice might well accuse the ball of being possessed. At Sacco's Bowl-Haven, it might be true. The Sci Fi Channel show "Ghost Hunters" came to Somerville last month to investigate reports of haints and haunts at the Davis Square lanes.

To be sure, the past is always present at Sacco's, which opened its doors in 1939, said co-owner Damon Sacco. "The way it was is the way it is," he said.

The room has wood paneling and a teal-and-orange color scheme. The prices are frighteningly low - $3 a string, peak.

On Feb. 20, the only echoes were those of falling pins. However, a few employees have reported creepier sounds.

Sacco's mechanic, Mike Carey, has "heard noises that don't make sense," he said.

When co-owner J.P. Sacco worked the closing shift, four or five times he heard "a real definitive footstep" above the lanes.

... Somerville city spokesman Tom Champion tried to focus the attention across the river: He'd expect "Sammy White's Brighton Bowl would be the locus" of paranormal practices in Boston, he said. Four employees were murdered there in 1980; a Somerville cabbie was convicted.

Mid-City Lanes Rock 'N Bowl New Orleans Louisiana is said by many locals to be haunted. The second story upstairs bowling alley has seen many things over the past years. From the great storm of Katrina to the many ghost that haunt the stairs leading up to it. Many tell of how they see ghoslty images and shadows walking up and down the steep longs set of stairs. The locker rooms are said to be haunted by a ghost called Whitney, and that of a man who walks around cussing. And also as is the most haunted lane number 6. Many say the ghost will always let the underdog who bowls on this lane win

This unlikely music venue attracts all kinds. Locals of all ages come to Cajun two-step on the large, wooden dance floor. Tourists generally stand at the protruding half-circle bar eyeing the dancers. Some patrons just come to bowl with great background music, not the usual repetitious drone heard in more traditional alleys. Rock 'N' Bowl focuses on regional roots styles, from Cajun and zydeco to swing and rockabilly. Don't expect high-tech bowling that keeps score for you; this is an old score-sheet-and-pencil kind of alley. A downstairs performance space, cheekily named Bowl Me Under, hosts special events and local acts during busy times such as Mardi Gras and Jazz Fest. Patrons pony up a pay-one-price cover for unlimited back-and-forth access to both the alley and the hall below.

McGregor Lanes -Minnesota
Originally built as a movie theater in the 1940s, McGregor Lanes was converted into a bowling alley twenty years later. It’s been filled with the sound of strikes and a few ghosts haunting the place ever since. Many say they see the ghost of man they call iron Hand Jack.


Bryant Lake Bowl - Minneapolis
This gem of a bowling alley is located near the intersection of Bryant and Lake in Uptown, Minneapolis. The location is said to be very haunted and those that bowl there attest to the haunting's vehemently. Not just a hotbed of bowling, the Bryant Lake Bowl theater is famous for eclectic and always interesting performances. And ghost Photos happen here all the time.

Why are Bowling Alleys's

So-So Haunted?

Many people meet the loves of their lives at bowling alleys. Many happy memories often generate a location where a ghost might want to settle. I have witnessed wedding's, proposals, birthdays, anniversaries, and even a funeral memorial service or two. I have seen love affairs blossom, people reveal their sexuality. Many often make new friends that last them their whole life long just by throwing a ball down a gutter once in a while.

People of all ages die at Bowling alleys all the time also. Either from severe bowling accidents, slips falls, illness, disease, old age, heart attacks, or injuries.

Many bowling alleys no matter how family orientated these lanes are supposed to be still have murders occurring at them. From arguments turing into serious fights, shootings, knife fights, gang fights and many rivalry's between good and bad individuals.

Another contributing reason Bowling alleys are so haunted is they have been around for a long time.

Many who ghost hunt and bowl will tell you hunting for real ghosts it is likened to actual bowling. You need to have the patience, mind set that your going to accomplish getting evidence. If your just going there and being distracted then your not going to find ghost. Concentration makes good bowlers and good ghost Hunters. Just because Jason And Grant found out they were easily distracted might mean their mind set was just not right when searching for ghost in a haunted Bowling Alley.

After hour EVP's from haunted bowls always seem play back the sounds of the machines and the sounds of crowds. Even though the place is totally shut down and empty.

So the next time your out trying for a strike ask the ghost for a helping hand it might not hurt.
