From headless roller-coaster riders to doomed brides, Long Beach has a long history of gruesome tales. In the spirit of Halloween, the Long Beach Post has compiled a series of videos looking at the city’s scariest stories.
- The Haunted Long Beach series begins Sunday, Oct. 28, with a stroll down Igor’s Alley in Los Cerritos, the setting of a grisly high school urban legend.
- In the next video on Monday, Oct. 29, we tell some of the tales behind numerous ghosts seen roaming among the tombs at Sunnyside Cemetery.
- On Tuesday, Oct. 30, we will take you on a tour of the storied Breakers Hotel in Downtown Long Beach, where visitors came for luxurious amenities, but found something much more sinister.
- And, finally, on Halloween, Wednesday, Oct. 31, we visit the most haunted place in Long Beach: The Queen Mary hotel, where ghosts abound from the propeller shaft to the first-class pool.
