and the blinking Snow White
I really like amusement parks. The bigger the coasters, the better for me. I have enjoyed them for as long as I can recall, but there is one that I think I would enjoy for a very different reason.
In Veracruz Mexico there is a long abandoned park called Reino Mágico. Once upon a time it was a place you could take your children to play amongst their favorite fairy tale creatures.
Built in 1985 it had all the makings of an ideal wonderland save for one feature. The fact that it was built directly on top of an old cemetary. Unsurprisingly that led to a lot of rumors regarding the park, and whether or not it was cursed. Many people over the years have claimed to have seen spirits walking around the grounds, and others claimed to have seen some of the swings moving on their own, while the rest remained still.
However, the eeriest rumor comes from the Snow White statue above. It is said that late at night she moves on her own, and that her eyes follow you wherever you go. That’s not an uncommon thing to hear about paintings that are well done, but that isn’t where it ends with Snow White. Many claim to have seen her blink.
An interesting urban legend of course, as she is an unmovable object without a soul of her own. Certainly she wouldn’t be capable of blinking, and the statue herself doesn’t have eyelids that could answer for the strange claims. All a rumor, a story, something to scare kids with so they don’t come to an old abandoned amusement park late at night to explore.
