Graveyards are creepy places to be, there’s no way around that. Sometimes though, the gravestones can be so much spookier than the graveyard itself. Takes these 23 graves for example.

They’re the strangest, most bizarre, and most heartbreaking gravestones we could find.

1.) Weeping at the piano. I wonder if she played…

2.) This woman really loved her Micky Mouse.

3.) I hope this guy didn’t die of anything smoking related.

4.) The grave of a maze maker. Could you solve it?

5.) Sleeping forever.

6.) A tree taking over an old grave.

7.) From a graveyard in Paris, France. It’s a hauntingly beautiful gravestone.

8.) A heart broken mother had this grave designed for her deceased 10-year-old daughter in 1871. While she was alive, the daughter was terrified of storms. The grave was constructed with an entrance that descends to the level of the coffin. Her mother would come and enter the tomb during storms to comfort her child.

9.) This life size girl in the glass box grave was commissioned by the girl’s mother.

10.) This is the grave of a 16-year-old girl. Her sister has this life-sized gravestone commissioned for her.

11.) Endless love, from Thailand.

2. Called TILT, the attraction uses hydraulic lifts to move the full-length windows forward at a 33-degree angle so people can get a proper bird’s eye view of the city 1,000ft below.

3. The tilting windows have metal bars on each side, which you grab hold of as the glass begins to move outwards.

4. TILT opens to the public this weekend and will cost $5 plus the admission to the observatory.

Eight people will be able to lean against the glass at one time.

5. Nichole Williamson, the general manager of 360 Chicago, the new name for the old John Hancock Observatory, said:

 

The movement in and out of the building is very controlled. We want it to be memorable and thrilling, but we don’t want to terrify anybody.

6. Alia Kingsbury, who visited the attraction on a school trip, told AP she was just happy she didn’t wet herself.

Zumanjaro Drop of Doom

It’s official. Coming in 2014, Six Flags Great Adventure will introduce Zumanjaro: Drop of Doom, a brand new record-breaking drop ride feature breathtaking views, impressive heights, astonishing speeds, stomach-tightening drops, and an adrenaline rush like no other. It will be the tallest drop tower in the world, lifting riders up 415 feet in the air and rocketing back down at 90 miles per hour.

First, your eight-person gondola will blast to the top of the 415-foot structure in approximately 30 seconds. You’ll pause for a moment to check out the aerial view of the park and anticipate the rapid heart-racing plummet coming up next. Everything soon becomes a blur as gravity pulls your gondola downwards at 90 miles per hour, reaching ground level again in less than 10 seconds—before you even have time to scream.

The three soaring Zumanjaro towers will share their structure and be built on the face of the record-breaking Kingda Ka coaster. As you rise and fall along the vertical track, the Kingda Ka steel trains will be thundering around the track at 128 miles per hour at the same time.

Zumanjaro: Drop of Doom was inspired by the African theme of Safari Off Road Adventure, last summer’s new attraction that created the world’s largest theme park. While waiting to board Zumanjaro, guests will pass an all-new animal area, where they can watch native African Anubis baboon play and interact in their habitat.

To make room for the newest addition to Six Flags Great Adventure, we must bid farewell to a classic. Rolling Thunder, our classic wooden coaster, will close to the public on September 8 to help make way for construction of the new ride. New technological advances and preferences have created a new generation of thrill rides, and Rolling Thunder’s popularity has decreased over the years. Be sure to tackle this coaster’s 85-foot drop and 10 dipping hills before it slips into history.

The extreme Zumanjaro: Drop of Doom is set to debut in spring 2014. Are you ready to take on this all-new drop ride?

Man  Wakes up in Body Bag at Funeral Home

LEXINGTON, Miss. February 28, 2014 (AP)

Workers at a Mississippi funeral home say they found a man alive and kicking when they opened a body bag.

Holmes County Coroner Dexter Howard calls it a miracle that 78-year-old Walter Williams is alive.

The coroner was called to Williams’ home in Lexington, a community north of Jackson, where family members believed he had died.

Howard says Williams had no pulse and was pronounced dead Wednesday at 9 p.m.

Early Thursday, workers at Porter and Sons Funeral Home were preparing to embalm Williams when he started to kick in the body bag.

Family members were called and Williams was taken to a hospital. Howard says he believes Williams’ pacemaker stopped working, then started again.

Family members say Williams, a farmer, told them he’s happy to be alive.
