"Bally's 23rd floor Weird and Frightning Experience!

I had no clue about what I was getting into. I upgraded to a renovated room on the 23rd floor. Initially I was happy about the room until I encountered weird things that took place in early am...3. I had the worst 4 sleeps ever! My wife had her first night terror ever. She was facing the wall yelling and screaming at the top of her lungs, so loud I jumped out of bed clinching my chest. She was yelling stuff like OMG and leave me alone and was running towards the door. The screams coming from her were so loud that I thought security was going to be called. I was so frightened that I had a hard time breathing for like 45 minutes. This was the first time in her life she had a night terror. Other weird things were chills running through my body constantly. It started from my head and would go thru my body out of my feet and cycle thru repeatedly. I travel alot and I thought this was weird so I decided to go talk to customer service and I asked them of there was history to the room. She assured me that she had no recollection of anything on that room recently and offered us to stay on a much lower floor. I declined because I wanted to still have a bar fridge and I don't believe in ghosts or supernatural stuff, and convinced myself it was probably a bad dream that she has no memory of. My wife and I returned to the 23rd floor and as I exited the elevator, I made a comment to her that was what would you do if there was a fire here...I never made comments like that before. Again I continued to have chills, the bar fridge made banging noices, and it felt weird. The last night as I couldn't sleep I looked over at the curtains and saw clear air waving movements in the corner. I didn't want to look anymore so I slammed my eyes shut and prayed. Then as I started to fall asleep I had a bad dream and woke up instantly. It was about a man running frantically, that I thought he was chasing me, but was running for water, like a calm ocean, but was running fast in panic on the shoreline. I thought all this was crazy, and had explainations like the a/c was what gave me shivers and the night terror was from a late meal...etc. When I arrived home I was curious so I started to google things and found out that the 23rd floor is most haunted and a fire broke out in 1980 where 85 people perished. I had no knowledge of this before and will now check for history's before I book another hotel."

This was great until the ghost story part. Don't get me wrong, I love a ghost story, but I think the made environment is much more interesting outside of the supernatural. Old Vegas is a perfect example. It was the center of the entertainment universe back in the day, now it's a family-friendly, sad shell of that. That didn't happen because of fires or ghosts, it happened because the money moved up the strip. Now, I can feel the griminess in the old casinos that may be the ghosts of the gambling-addicted of yore, that would be a sensation upon which to focus. That said, seeing pics of the old places is awesome. However, personally and on a side note: I always forget to have fun in Old Vegas. I get so uptight and depressed.




You betcha

I remember when the MGM burned. It wasn't long after I moved to Vegas. I could see the hotel from my office. Stories of players not wanting to leave their machines even when the hotel was on fire. Others trying to cash in smoke damage chips at other casinos. Crazy stiff. Since then I always travel with a good flashlight and check for exits before I go to bed. Commercial building codes changed as a result of the fire. Tragic.
