Two years ago my dad and step mom told me we were going to the Stanley Hotel. I was VERY excited. As soon as you walk into the Hotel you can feel something there. During the night if you have a flash camera and you go to the main staircase and take multiple different pictures at different angles, you will catch something. I went on a few of the Ghost Tours as well. You learn a lot about the hotel. There is a little boy who loves candy. During the middle of the night, if you go out into the hallway and put M&M’s in your hand and hold your hand open (Don’t have a light) soon enough the little boy will move the candy. It’s very interesting. I suggest you go there for yourself!

I went to the Stanley Hotel lest year and stood out in the hallway at night holding out my hands with M&M’s waiting to see if they would move. I suddenly felt a cool breeze in my presence. Nothing happened to my M&M but before I knew it someone pulled my pants down. I then dropped my M&M’s in shock. I pulled up my pants and ran into my room. When I summoned my courage and went back in the hall the M&M’s were gone. I then felt some pulling at my pants so I went back into my room. Very scary.
