It was a great time. We took two 19 yr old girls and they were scared before we got in the parking lot. We will be back.

I'm 11 and I thought this was so much fun. We had a group of boys behind us that were FREAKING out. It was sooooo funny. For people that are scared, it's not that bad. It's really cool.

Scariest night of my life
Me and my friend went and we were both scared but then even before we went in to the woods trail my friend started to faint she was okey so we wnt on in. I thought it would be fun but IT WASNT i was soooooo scared i thought i was going to die. I started to have a panic attack and stared to scream and cry because the people wouldnt stop folowing me and im only 13, they kept saying they were going to kill me and chop me into pieces, I had tio have the security escort me out because iwas frozen with fear... I have never felt anything like that in my entire life.So if you dont like things that can scare i sugesst u stay at home....

The thing
So like it was me and my dad, right. We were walking through the woods and something just ran in front of us and we didn't know what it wass. So we just kept going until it kept doing it and then we heard something laugh and my dad said okie thats enough your scareing my daugther. he finally stopped and when we got to the part were we had to split up and something just pulled him away from me and and i went on the wrong trail and got scared, Finally my dad found me but my experince was really really scary!!

cat scratch
Last year I went to sloss with one of my friends and while we were waiting in line to go into the furnace he was telling me his past experience about sloss. He went down to the basement one to get something that someone had told him to go get and all he had was his phone to see things and he was walking and felt what was a cat and he shined his phone down to look around to see if he saw anything...there was nothing. he grabed what he needed and when he was standing there he felt it again on his leg. when he went upstaires where there was light he lifted up his pants leg and found 3 long scratches going down his leg and to this day he said he still has the scars from them on his leg.

Definitely Haunted
while going through the inside trail, i was behind my boyfriend and was holding his shirt tail, we got into a really small, confined area and it felt as if my hand was pulled from his shirt. like not just pulled, YANKED, as if someone was angry that i was holding on to him. it scared me to death and i will NEVER forget that experience.

Pushed camera
I was up in Birmingham this last spring. I like old industrial places, love a little history mixed in with mechanical items and machines. I am not one to be quick to "believe" in ghosts not am I one to look for the paranormal, however during my visit, I was taking pictures, many pictures. I put my camera through a broken window to snap a shot of one of the machines, just then my camera (with me holding it) was pushed in the opposite direction from where I was pointing the lens, I thought I might have either hit something or just got the camera caught on the window frame, I pulled the camera out, took a look at everything and put the camera back in the window....nothing, It did not get hung up on the window....I then realized that it was physically moved....I left believing that there are "spirits" or "ghosts" at the Sloss furnace.

So,I've never been to sloss but I might be going next weekend[October 6,2012]with my boyfriend and some friends. I'm reading a ton of personal experiences and I'm TERRIFIED.! But I'm also excited cause I wanna see what Slag has to offer! Two of my friends that went a few years ago,both said they got slapped while in the basement and I read a story on here where someone got slapped. I'm ready but I'm not.! I'm full of anticipation.! Well,yea.!~ Bye.. Wish me luck and hope I dont pee my pants.!

Ghost from the boiler room
Several years ago, I was a memeber of the Alabama Paranormal Society and we did an investigation at Sloss. In one of my photos that I radomly took in the boiler room and captured a figure of a man sitting on the metal step near the back of the boiler room. I still have the photo.

The Ghost
When I was at Sloss Fright Furnace with my family, I saw a weird looking shape. It looked like like a ghost. It also looked like a girl floating in mid-air. When I got out of the Furnace, I felt a cold chill running through my body. I think the girl was a daughter to one of the workers. Also when I got out of the Furnace it felt like the girl was hugging me. I was shocked to see a ghost at Sloss Furnace. So were ever you are at Sloss Furnace, there will always be a ghost a round you. Damian Boteler 7/15/2012

Who knows.
So I went through the outdoor trail with my dad and bestfriend last Halloween. Me and my friend were holding on to each other for whatever reason. We were exiting this wooded house and had just passed 2 actors. There were no actors around and I felt soemone grab my left elbow softly. I was wearing a jacket yet it was so cold like bone chilling. I could feel it through my jacket. I thought it could've been my dad but he was walking ahead. My friend was holding my arm on the right. I looked around and there was no one behind us just in front of us. Then as I looke forward I felt someone blow on my ear and whisper something inaudible. Then of course actors came out and scared the shit out of my still racing heart.I can't debunk this experience as anything bc I'm not sure what happened. But if anyone asks, of course I'm a a believer.

If you have a week bladder dont come here because you will easily let a quick piss out if you do.Its so creepy. You will feel things rubbing against you and all kinds of stuff. There isnt a second that will go bye without you having second thoughts about turning around and going home.If you dont like ghost and any other nonliving creatures i would recommend you not coming here >:|

Knowing The History
My friend and myself thought it would be clever to go just us; we were wrong. The minions were everywhere you wouldn't expect them to be in addition the heavy fog added to the idea of not knowing where to go or what you'd run into. Knowing the history of the Furnace doesn't ease the tension either. I personally did plenty of research and it made the atmosphere that much more intense. They say the monsters don't touch you, however I swear someone or something grabbed my ankle in the dark. I'd go back a hundred times over but hopefully won't almost trip from running so fast again.

The Fright Night Shift
I was a volunteer working a night at the haunted house with a vet at the Black Hall. I've known about the stories of the ghost at sloss furnace and have always wanted to see if the stories were true. After one group walked down the black hall, i followed after them with my bat and went to recharge the glow paint on my face under the black light. I was hiding in a closet type area and was on my way back to my spot when i noticed someone walking into my place. It was not the guy I was working with and no other group was walking through at the time. I saw workboots belonging to a man going into my hiding place. When i got back to my place, i could feel something cold rubbing my arm and something whispering something inaudible in my ear. It was crazy
by NonVet
Me and my boyfriend were walking throught the tunnel and i saw a man running twards me and i turned around to see if he was still chasing us and he was gone and we started walking back the other was and i felt some on grab me ans i just up and shit me pants i was so imbaressed my boy friend hade to drive me home with the smell of shit in his car.
by Bitchslap
Real Spirit
I went last year and in the tunnel there was a real spirt/ghost whatever you wanna call it. Near the end of the tunnel I looked to my left and there was a face that looked like it was made by a projector or something of the sort but it was pitch black in that tunnel and I did not see anywhere a projector could have been. You also get chills right when you walk in it.
by Ashleigh
I have been here one time, and I am very skeptical to go back. My heart was beating so fast, i was even scared to go to sleep, they grab you and everything. It was a fun night, but i cant say im going back!
by Kimmi
Really great. :)
I went to Sloss with my boyfriend. We were in the second group to go into the woods for the night, and it was really great! Actors coming out of nowhere, following you and scaring you.. The chainsaw people were cool. One was chasing my boyfriend and I and my boyfriend tripped and fell and I fell on him lol. In my opinion, the factory was scarier! The vortex thingy was so trippy omg. It's so confusing. They did a fantastic job in the factory. The only 'ghostly' thing that happened was that two people in our group disappeared. First they were behind my boyfriend and I, and then they got in front of us when we were trying to get away from one of the chainsaws. They were both really tall, so I don't know how we missed them disappearing, but everyone in the group that went on the trail with my boyfriend and I was wondering where and when they disappeared. Creepy! The trails are well worth the money!

Glad I finally discovered this section of the website! I went with my aunt, uncle, and sister October 2010 to Sloss for the first time. Knowing the stories of James Wormwood I was curious and anxious to see what Sloss and Slag had to offer. Walking in I started calling out to him asking to make himself known. Of course I wasnt expecting any replies from the after life. When we made our decent into the walk ways that was filled with smoke (just past the black bags hanging from the ceiling) I noticed off to my side someone with a black glove reaching at my face. I ducked and 'wooed' at the guy reaching to me and laughed it off. Shortly after that room We walked up the steps and I was tripped up the steps loosing my shoe which was hanging slightly off the edge of the step. Laughed it off and again and went on. On the car ride home we were talking about everything that happened and my family told me they had each seen someone standing in the fog room. My aunt and uncle saw the shadow of a man on the left side of us and my sister and I saw a man on the right. Keep in mind you can barely see in that particular room. Upon further investigation we found out that no monsters are in that room due to the dense smoke. Weird factor number one.... Why would I have seen someone reaching at my face and the 3 other people I was with each saw a figure at the same time if no one was there? And weird factor number two. When we go home and I was taking my shoes off I noticed blood on the room of my shoes on the heels as if someone grabbed at the heel. On both shoes. No one else had it on theirs and they had white soles. It wasnt on my pants or any where else on my shoes. A year later its still there. Idk what I saw or what went down that night, if it was real or an illusion. All I know is it still creeps me out thinking of it and I'm going back for more this weekend!
by Ashton P
Stayed all night at Sloss all alone one night. Need say more??? Will never do it again. True story. All night.

by Stump

Chased on the inside AND out
Last year was my first year to ever go to Sloss Fright Furnace. One thing you should know is that I'm the EASIEST to scare.The group of friends that I went with had told me "everything I needed to know" about what I was about to go through. Except they said things a little backwards...they went on to tell me that if I got scared, then they would all leave me alone and I'd be fine. Turns out, it's the exact opposite. I'm deathly afraid of clowns and of course, the first thing I see is a man dressed as a clown. I respond by hiding behind one of my friends and burying my face into his jacket. The man proceeded to taunt me and wouldn't leave. My natural instinct was to run so that's what I proceeded to do until I had about five massive figures chasing behind me. I went everywhere trying to find a safe refuge, even a portal potty...bad idea considering it was hot, and they have speakers in the back of loud screeching and chatter that filled my ears, not to mention that the monsters had bats and axes and they almost tilted the whole thing over with. But when it was finally safe to come out I carried a police officer with me wherever I went haha. Soon though, my tears had dried, but anything could've started me up. I was on alert to everyone. My group was called to go into the furnace and we got in line. But I didn't even last 5 minutes inside the gate before I was surrounded by creepy scary figures who chased me out in numbers. It was like they were hunting me in groups! I couldn't turn or open my eyes without having someone in my face! Thankfully my friend and his mother accompanied me until the rest of my group exited the furnace. Me, being thankful to leave, sprinted toward the exit. By now, you would've thought that I learned my lesson to NOT run or act afraid. But I was READY to leave! the chase started once more and lasted until I was laying on the floor of our car crying trying to tune out the banging on the outside of the car. I waited for my group to reach the car and we went full speed ahead away from the furnace. So here's a tip, if you are as scared as me...DON'T ACT AFRAID! It will egg them on that much more! and wear a sweatshirt of jacket that you can burry your face into when you're scared! it comes in handy when you need it. and out of all the things to do DO.NOT.RUN!

Black figure in sight
It was May, of 2011. My friends and I were taking about our own paranormal experiences when I told them I thought it was all a joke. Nobody comes back when they die; shortly after that argument we got on the subject of Sloss furnace. I thought it was a hauxce where as the others said I was crazy. My friend Matt drove us all out there by the tunnel. He believed it wasnt a joke or hauxce and wanted to prove my wrong. Matt and I got out of the car and the others stayed in; Matt told me to say and one end of the tunnel and walk to the other end. He headed back to the car without my knowledge; I stood at the end and took 6 steps in.(remember the 6 steps..It's kinda important) and felt something cold brush my arm. I thought I was just getting chills so I took 6 slow steps in again, and something scratched my leg. It was 3 claw marks. It was barely bleeding so I wasn't to alarmed. I took 6 last steps and looked straight ahead of me, there was a man who looked like a worker standing there staring at me. You couldn't see a face just a figure outline of a man who bent down it was almost like he dropped something. I thought it was Matt so I ran out of the tunnel and to the other side to see if it was them playing tricks on me. I called him, and he told me he was in he car with the other girls. I reached the other side to see three lines of 6 scratch with a finger into the dirt. I was freaked and ran to the car. The scratches on my leg opened up by the time I got into the car. It was poring blood and I have 6 stitches on my right calf. I've never gone back and don't plan on it now. I believe in paranormal activity now.

siblings/working there :/
im 12 and i went to sloss with my mom because my sister was working there and wen i was going through i wasnt really scared because i have been there a million times and dont scare easily except the chainsaws hateing those anyway i was walking through with my mom and when we got to the gungeon (before the clown maze) i could hear my sister screaming GET OUT!! and knew she wus gunna do something ........ noone in my group knew she was my sister so when we walked in her part she of course saw me picked me up swung me around and then put me down like she was killing me and it was hilarious because everyone in my group besides my mom was freaking out!!!! it was soooooo funny!!!!!! but i was wearing a white shirt so now theres fake blood on it :'( so if you want some advice : DO NOT WEAR THE COLOR WHITE TP SLOSS!!!!!! unless you want it black when you get home :)

Police Offiicer and a unknown man!!
I remember when I went to the Sloss Furnace in the year of 2009 with a group of friends and one of my cousins. Me and my cousin was standing by the palm reader talking and waiting to get our palm read, when I felt someone come up behind us so I turned around.It was a pale, white, police officer with dark brown eyes(appeared black). There was something about him that just wasn't right. He kinda freaked me out and I really didn't want to say anything to him. He asked, "What letter do you have?" Me and my cousin responded by saying, "M." He told us that they called our letter.Me and my cousin didn't hear it so we went over and asked the people what letter they were on and they said "C." So me and cousin went back over to where we were standing before and told the Police Officer that they didn't call our letter. He asked "You sure?" I looked back at the palm reader and she was just finishing up with a couple, and then she asked us, "Who are you two girls talking to?" I said, "The police officer." I turned around and pointed infront of me but he was gone... When me, my cousin, and my friends got our letter called and we beginned the trail, there was a man chasing me so I was running. I turned around to see if he was still chasing me..he wasn't. So, I turned back around and that's when I bumped into the man that was chasing me. I started screaming and ran around him. When I turned back around to see if he was following me, he was gone... I swear, that was the scariest thing I've ever encountered! But when I think back to what happened, it was actually fun and it makes me want to go back and have more weird or ghostly encounters! :)

Apparition of a Bride in her Bridal Gown
My husband,niece, and myself went to frigt night in 2008. As we first started going through the front door we came around into a huge looking like auditorium and this foggy looking bride in her gown came by us and brushed us on our sleeves. The bride just kept staring at my husband. It was just really creepy. After she passed by us she just disappeared into thin air.I am finally getting to go back this year and I cant wait! I,m hoping I will get to see slag and the bride too. I know the story about slag but, I heard there is a story about her too.
by Billie Teague / Bug
I went here with my art teacher but she didn't tell us the place was haunted.But it was me and three other girls that was with me we went down this dark place I don't remember what is was called but you could see a light at the end of the place and i felt something actually grab my leg.I don't know if I was imagining it or was it for real.I believe it was for real because a lot of people died down there.If i would have knewn the place was haunted I would have never sign that permission slip and got on that bus.

Physical Attack
I went to Sloss on a day tour. When I was in the tunnels by myself I heard a noise behind me and then felt a sharp pain in my back. There was nothing around me or near me I was standing alone in the middle of the tunnels.

A Real Haunted House
I went to Sloss Furnace one year when they were hosting a haunted house I believe it was one of the first years that they had a haunted house there! At the time I had not even heard the stories of Sloss nor did I realize that it was really haunted but I was soon to find that out! I started on the tour threw the furnace we had just began our tour when I turned a corner and saw a man standing between two steel beams in denim overalls with a hat just standing there staring at me, I started to laugh and said why arent they trying to jump out and scare us isnt this suppose to be a scary Haunted House, the tour guide turned around and said who are you talking about and I said that man back there when I turned around and pointed where he was he was gone and she said we havent even gotten into the haunted house yet! must have been old man slag and then she proceeded to tell me who that was I got chill bunps all over! needless to say i was ready to go after that!
by Melissa
Cool evp
Me and my friends frequently go ghost hunting there. My brother was provoking in the basement when he heard and caught on tape "GEEEET OUT." We have also had discussions with the other side with our k2 meter there. We know for a fact there is someone names Paul who died in the tunnel. Sloss furnaces is my favorite place on earth and i have pretty much everything in there gift shop i hope more people visit there.
by Adrian

My first time ever to go in sloss furnace was an experience that I will never forget... My step son and I were both surprised at what had happened..We came to the clown section and I hate clowns so bad, but when I looked up over the wall I seen a little boy looking back at freaked me out. He was just hanging there looking down..well after it was over we made it out too the parking lot and my step son was tslking about a little boy he had seen in the same place, spot and it really freaked us out...We still keep coming back though

Best all time
Ive been to slosses furnace and this time was the best time. My girlfriend said she wanted to be scared, because she never gets scared and when we got done she said it was the best one shes been to. So if you want to be scared go to the furnace and see if you can go threw without wanting to get out . but I suggest you watch the videos on the furnace website to get the history of the sloss it makes it so much scarier.
by jeremy
i work at sloss and its not bad if u dont know the history but if u do u know ghost r there especially slag the manager the top dog or watever u want to call him and his workers.Sloss is haunted and me and my friend were walking there at night getting ready to work in the haunted house and so we were walking and were hit in the back and heard a voice say we were lazy and got no brake so we think slag thought we were workers and thinks he still works there.
by Worker
We went to Sloss this past weekend{Oct 22}I have never been this was my first time,and it was awesome!!!Now on to the best part.We were standing in line waiting to start the Sloss haunted tour.I was beyond excited:}When out the corner of my left eye I see something on the very top of the highest silo{Big Alice},this man just looking at me.I look at him acknowledge him and he disappears.I immediately tell my husband and Sister-in law did you see that.There like NO what. At this point I'm just not sure what I saw.I look back and there is this man standing,looking at me then he starts walking to the edge of the rail and looks like he is about to throw himself over the railing,he is just dangling there .Then he disappeared again.We start the tour and the whole time I feel as if I'm being followed.I'm in the catwalk and alone I lagged behind do NOT do this.Then out of nowhere I got pushed Hard!!My husband comes to find me.I'm freaking out.The rest of the way I'm feeling sick on fire..I swear to the Lord almighty the ghost of James Robert Wormwood was following us.Because the moment I got out of that place I didn't fell him.Now I'm sure most people when they hear Ghost stories they think well fake not real{unless they see it with there OWN two eyes!!}.I can assure you this is real.Sloss is 100%HAUNTED!I have the Ability to Channel,I'm Clairvoyant,and I have.E.S.P.,so this isn't my first GHOST:}I will be coming back I'm planning a private tour.Cant wait.
by Bonnie
Excellent fright fest! Went tonight (10/16) with the family and a couple friends and had a blast. The Sloss Furnace has some interesting history that definitely adds to the terror. Some nice catering, souveniers and great actors, was a bit crowded but was well worth the wait and it quickly became obvious why it is so popular. Don't forget to get your picture taken by Little Red Riding Hood at the photo spot, she's a cutie ;-)
by Sandman
Amazing Time!
Me and my friend went to Sloss the other night, and it was the BEST haunted experience I've ever had! Usually I don't get scared easily, but this time I was caught off guard about 20 times! I hope they make more trails, I had so much fun. Thanks!!

Two moms came last night and brought 7 kids to the Sloss Haunted House. It has to be one of the scariest haunted houses I've been to. All of us loved it. The 3 D room was our favorite !!!!! The clown and the little jester boy were great outside !!!!

Last year on October, 18th 2009/ My first visit, to Sloss Fright Fernace.. Ok, last year at about this time. Is when, I went. I wasn't expecting any of this! If your going to go, All I can say is be AWARE! It's scary as f**k. Me & my friend Shelby, are going on the 15th. I've heard stories about this place, & most of them were true. So, I've heard. I actually, experienced onee. Alright, well we were all in line getting ready to walk in. & this girl, & her boyfriend were behind us.. & as we were half way through, I glanced back real fast as we went into the spinning room. & noone was behind us. So, I was ofcourse freaking out!! & When, we finished the tour. We asked, the Manager about them two. & He said they have came up missing.. So, we gave him our number to keep in touch if they appeared. & the man called two days later. They had arrived back. He said the boy & girl, didn't know what happened. Had no clue, at all. No memory of even entering Sloss! So, all im saying is if your going. Be willing to take the consequences. Your actions, your descions, your consequences, right? Welp, guess you'll find out. Have funn!(:

I went to sloss with a group of friends in october 2009. I am very scared easily and was so nervous! Though it says the monsters cannot touch you, they get REALLY close. Sloss is a great mix of fun, and being scared. I would reccomend YOU GO. I am going back this year, 2010, and I just gotta keep my eyes closed and run as fast as I can to get the hell outta that maze!

Clown Maze
I worked Sloss a few yrs ago (2005-6) and was in the clown maze. Any of the workers know we have sections to keep too many monsters from being clustered. Where I was positioned I could hear a group coming, but I saw a sihouette of someone at the end of the hall in my section. They appeared lost as if trying to find the way out and I knew the last group had went through a LONG time ago so I decided to investigate, but never found the source of the silhouette.
by Bluddie
The 1st time I ever went to sloss I was very happy about knowing the history about this awsome place. While being scared already about walking through the darkness I felt like every time I'd walk their was a cold chill on my face. Then I was walking up some stairs and a guy was banging a shovel I saw the shovel virbartion on the ground and a sound saying stop now.. so I stoped and looked at the scarey guy and I said please stop u arent scareing me at all but theirs a ghost yelling at u so stop and listen. He takes his mask off and looks at me.. U haer that I told u that I did. So he was scared and ran out of the place and out into the parking lot. Im a believer about Sloss done some resurch.. Very much so when a spirt inter acts with u sometimes be afraid run like crazy. Or stop and listen to what it has to say.. I and a ghost wisper so where ever theirs a ghost im the one who knows it is their.. give me paper and a pen and a nice chair.. They will write to me and ill show u what they want u to do or just leave them alone.. This is all true ive got a ghost in my room that likes to move stuff and write to me at night.. It's crazy but it's all the truth..

ghost photos
I have several photographs that show someone extra that was not there. These were taken in November 2009 and March 2010. In the gravel area behind the furnace by the train tracks, everytime I raised the camera to my face I heard footsteps running around behind me. One photo has 1/2 torso and head as well as my model, another has 8 faces, yet another at the fence has my model and a figure coming thru the fence. This place is HAUNTED.

My gf and I took her son to Sloss for the first time. He loved it and read every marker we could find. He loves history but scares fairly easy. We didn't tell him about the haunted history we wanted him to enjoy the trip. He wanted to go down into a tunnel near the old train. I agreed to walk down with him, my gf refused to go along knowing the history. We made it to the base of the stairwell, I stepped on to the landing. As soon as his foot hit the last stair we heard "NO!" yelled from the other end of the tunnel. My stepson ran back up while I turned to look. There was no one in the tunnel but me, the daylight was pearing down the other stairs and my gf was at the top. I don't know who didn't want a young innocent in the tunnel but I refuse to take him back there.

Me and my friends went on a hunt for paranormal activity. At the end of the railroad tracks at the other side looked like a appercian it looked like it had a hard hat on and had a limp people say it's Slag but some people say it's just the other people that got killed in the explosion that's there trying to get with there family and loved ones!!!!!!!!!!

Woman voice
I worked the Sister Hazel concert on 3/26/10. Me and my friend Rick were just walking around the place! We went into a tunnel and we were gonna walk behind this old train. It was dark so I turned my flash light on from my phone and pointed it towards the darkness and I seen movement! I didn't say anythign cus I didn't want to look dumb and then me and Rick heard a girl's voice! He looked and said did you here that I said yes and we ran!! We both were like I bet a girl was murdered there! And we researched it and only 1 girl was ever to die there and we heard her!!!
by TJ
next time, I'll do my research BEFORE
I came to the Sloss for the first time a few years ago, in 2007. I am not from Alabama and had never heard of Sloss, nor the stories surrounding it. I love haunted houses, however, so when a group of my friends suggested that we go, I readily agreed. We arrived a little after nightfall, and got our tickets. There was a good crowd, and we were very entertained by the performers, scary movies, and other Sloss patrons- some of whom were very deeply in costume. After a while, we were able to get into the "line up" area immediately before entering the haunted house. I was instantly uncomfortable. Not the normal pre-scaring jitters, but honestly unnerved. I felt very nauseous, twitchy and paranoid. I began to look around me, at the other guests to see if they were uncomfortable. All seemed well. So I began to look at the looming building in front of me. It was dark and almost indistinguishable in places. I let my eyes wander up the building and to what I assumed were the furnaces. They were wide, and more low-slung than the smokestacks. I found myself looking at them one by one, imagining the furnace in full swing. Until I saw a man standing on top of the tallest area. I couldn't believe it. These people at Sloss didn't expect us to climb all the way up there, did they? That can't be safe. I figured he was just some security guy, keeping an eye on the grounds, or maybe a haunted house worker taking a smoke break. I couldn't imagine that we would be expected to go that high up. I watched him pace for a few seconds before it struck me that I should ask someone. I flagged down a worker that was heading towards the Roadkill Cafe and asked if it was safe to stand up that high, and she looked at me like I was out of my mind. She said that no one was allowed that high in the factory. I pointed out to her where I had seen the man. She looked to where I was pointing, and back at me. This is what she said: "That's impossible. No one can get up there, not even the workers." She walked away from me very quickly. I looked back to where I had seen the man, but he was gone. We entered into the haunted house a brief minute later. When I got home that night, I immediately jumped onto my computer and googled "sloss furnace history". I had been staring at what I learned was called "Big Alice". I do not know who I watched pace on top of her.

Sure is...
My group and I went to Sloss over the last couple of days and ivestigated the place on our own. Not only do our experiences match those of the ones documented but "Samuel" is VERY real. Samuel attached himself to me for...a reason I don't want to mention...and followed me around the place the second night. There was another spirit named "Jeremiah" that hated me especially and tried to walk into a member of our team. The words we kept getting were "hot" "violent murder" "fell" and on several times, words that were not programmed into the device came up like "Ally" (me), "sexy" "bitch" and various others. A scraping sound that sounded like Freddy Kruger's nails and many various voice speaking within each of our minds...many of the same thoughts and words. Really spooky and really active. If you go back, tell Jeremiah that Ally sent you...

This wasn't actually MY experience, it was a friends. My buddy, Jacey went to the Sloss Fright Furnace with my other buddy, Paige, and there was a clown grabbing Jacey and she said "No! Stop! I'm just a little girl! Please don't hurt me!" And she started crying! I thought it was pretty funny, but then I thought that if it happened to me, I'd cry too!!!

1996 - Theopolis Jowers
My step-father was the executive director from about 1992? - 1998. As a child I would roam around from the beehive ovens to the far 2nd blast furnace. One day I was walking around talking with the artists at the time, and headed back to the gift shop. On the way back I saw the ghost of Theophilus Jowers on the top circular rail of the furnace closest to the administrative building. after that I was scared to wander around

the torture room
I worked the fright furnace this month. Scared a least 2000 peoples. After a break on friday there was 4 of us scary folks just lurking at the torture room waiting to start again when the ropes started doing things. As I had been working those same ropes all night and one of them was jammed and I could not make it budge I looked. No one there. As soon as I looked away it started again. Still no one there. I liked that the ghosts were f**king with us. I called to SLAG to keep it up.

It was so crazy every bit of it was scary it was the best thing ever
by blake
I've seen what appear to be shadows of men working at Sloss durring the night. I've seen things move as if a person were there. Others have been pushed, hit, and choked. I've heard of people doing things there as if something else drove them to do it and they just went along with it. It's all true... but know this: It's not ghosts. It's demonic activity aimed at confusing and distracting you. It's meant to make you think you have some sort of psychic ability and that dead people can be active in the spirit. Don't be fooled! The bible clearly states that the dead do nothing at all. Get away from those things as soon as you can. It's pure evil and not human. They hate you.
