Spooked theme park bosses have moved a new water ride – after sightings of a ghostly headless monk.

Is this an image of a ghost?


An eerie apparition prompted Thorpe Park to call in paranormal experts, who say building the Storm Surge has disturbed an ancient burial ground.

The 64ft-high ride was initially in an area called Monk’s Walk – a footpath linked to the nearby ruins of 1,400-year-old Chertsey Abbey.

But staff reported ghostly sightings, including the headless holy man, and an uneasy feeling they were being watched.

Thorpe Park in Chertsey, Surrey, called in paranormal investigator Jim Arnold. He got extreme Ouija board readings and ghostly images in photos of the site.

He added: “We felt the only explanation could be an ancient burial ground was being disturbed, prompting the paranormal activity.” Storm Surge has now been moved to another area of the park.

Work is currently halted on the ride...
