Snopes found a fine haunted house urban legend. It concerns a haunted house so scary that nobody can complete it.
I have heard for YEARS about a supposed "Haunted Hospital" here in Ohio.
Not actually haunted, but a haunted house attraction set in a hospital. Supposedly it's very scary and if you can make it through all the floors you get your money back. And no one ever makes it all the way through.
I've heard this story from MANY people, but NOONE knows exactly where it is. I've heard Dayton, OH Columbus, OH even KY.
These get pretty elaborate:
Common elements of the rumor are statements that the "house" has a specified number of floors or levels, and visitors are charged an exorbitant fee for entering, but get back a specified dollar amount for each floor or level completed. Ultimately, according to scuttlebutt, those who complete the full tour get back every cent they paid to get in. In the same breath, however, one hears that no one has yet managed this feat — this place has proved too darned scary for those who've so far tried it. (Some versions even posit that a few visitors never came out the exit, and were later found dead on the top floor.)
Any recent signs of this?
