Since I am now not at Genting Highland anymore, and since my best friend, Lion also doesn’t know much about the some spooky rumors around that area, I have managed to compile some stories that might add to everyone’s knowledge. Please remember that this stories does not have any solid proof. Maybe someone out there could provide some insights on these stories.
Let start from the bottom, the Karak Highways. There was a story going around for quite sometimes. Once a family was traveling along
After a few minutes, there were banging on the roof of the car. The wife got scared but remembered her husband’s advice and did not go out. There were cars driving pass them initially slowing down but sped off when they came near to the vehicle. Sensing something amiss, the wife dialed for the police.
Soon, a patrol car came and stop a distance behind the car, shone light at her and tell her to run as fast as she could to the patrol car without look back. She followed their advice but out of curiosity, she looked back and she saw a
Not really sure, how truth this story was. I heard a few version of it but the content was about the same. Out of curiosity, I did some searching and realized that there were really lots of accidents around that place. At least one or two serious one per year, I remembered seeing some serious car crash when I traveled to Genting last time but strangely it was not reported in the newspaper. Here is some articles that I managed to dig out: The famous one in 1990, recent ones (June 4, 2008) and the most recent ones (Jan, 19 2009). There was even one accident with ghostly photos.
Words from the street which goes that if you stroll around the themepark at night, you could some times heard people screaming or some equipment might came to life for no apparent reason.
I heard that it was haunted by those who died while playing at the theme park. One accident I heard was that a long hair girl got her scalp ripped off when playing the Space Shot. Her hair somehow got stuck by the machine, and the velocity of the free fall killed her instantly. I also heard that there were some fatal accident on the Corkscrew and people mysteriously missing when they paddled into the old Shark mouth (heard that it was sealed off).
In addition, one of my friends (after viewing my previous entry) told me that he saw children playing at the closed theme park at night!
So, I don’t know how true the haunting and accidents were, whether it was a good cover-up or just some stories to scare off some people but if anyone had some first hand experience, please do share.
Genting Hotels and Appartment
Ria Appartment (currently close)
This might be a coincidence but I heard many people fell sick after staying there. I got an anonymous email saying that one of the floors was totally sealed off and although no one was living at that floor, you could hear many people banging at the lift whenever your lift zoomed through that floor during midnight.
I did some research and it seemed that there were a lot of people experiencing seeing unusual figures or hearing unexplainable noise when staying at the apartment. There was also a history lesson on Ria Apartment and why the blocks were then renamed to Pahang and Selangor block.
Other Genting Hotels
There were lots of stories regarding some locked rooms and figures appearing out of nowhere and then jumped out from the windows. I heard that there were some suicides incidents because of gambling debts. That is why the windows of all rooms had been adjusted so that you could only open it slightly and enough to let the cold air in. Try typing “Genting Hotel Haunted” in your search engine and I bet there were lots of eerie happenings for you to read about.
One thing I was very sure was that if you requested changing room from the front desk, the staff would change it for you without asking anything. My friend tried it before, and this raised my curiosity to another level.
Although there was no much reported incident regarding the casino but it was considered a place full of little ghost. I shall start another entry on some ways to win money in the casino which was practiced by my aunt. One of the methods was giving the little ghosts some candies. But still depends on your believing.
There was one incident reported in the newspaper about a granny reported missing from the casino but was found at a far far place later.
This is what I managed to compile from my reading some stories and hearing some first hand experience. It might not be true and just some rumor. Just in case I go missing after this entry is being published or this entry is suddenly removed. Then you guys could suspect what might happen to me or this entry.
