Hi,

I recently came across the story about the Seven Gates Of Hell, located in York, Pennsylvania.
http://en.wikipedia....n_Gates_of_Hell

I read that, according to the legend, back in the day, there was an old asylum, which had the most horrible patients.
The doctors were even said to be a little crazy aswell, it was really a place of pain and torment.

On night, the asylum somehow caught fire and burned down, killing most of the doctors and patients.
Those that survived ran away in the woods, but were gunned down during a manhunt by the sheriff and the cops.

It's now said that there are seven gates in those woods near the asylum and according to the legend, no one has ever made it past the 5th gate, but if they would go through all 7, they would go straight to Hell.

I'm searching for people who have actually been there and have maps for me and stories ?
I plan to go there someday to investigate, when I got enough money to travel to the US (I'm from Belgium).

I read some stories from people online that have been there and they say that they hear strange sounds in the woods and start seeing spirits after passing the 3rd gate, demons after the 4th and that when they pass gate 5, a little girl appears and tells you to go back.

Other stories are that after gate 5, a man with a chainsaw chases you.

Also, those people say that when they get back to their car, a truck follows them for a while and then just dissapears into thin air.

I really think this is an interesting legend and I would like to know, well, EVERYTHING :D
I want to believe, so it doesn't matter what you tell me from your experience, because I'm not a skeptic.

Thanks already! :D

I heard/read if you make it pass all the gates you will find the hollow ruins of the "asylum." [Shrugs]

The chase stories are new to me. I've never heard that before. Thanks.

I've tried to find more info about this place but I always end up with nothing.

Thanks for the reply, that sounds kinda terrifying, but still very exciting aswell :D
I'll search for the website where I read those stories and post it here, there are alot of stories on there, but I would also like to find out if anyone from UM has been there and maybe has maps, since I can't seem to find any :unsure2:

It sounds a bit too glamourized to be a true story.. You know how people like to exaggerate to impress others.

Not exactly a reliable source, but worth looking at, anyway.

Yeah, that's true, but I'm still hoping for some of it to be real :)
Because I find it really strange that the place is guarded by police 24/7, why would they do that ?
If it's just to protect the neighbors from annoying teenagers, then I could use the police in my neighborhood 24/7 aswell hehe :P

I grew up just south of York and never heard of this it sounds like a gimmick to get people to go to the haunted park they put on Halloween at rocky ridge park just south of the location. if you want a scary place to go in that area try rehmeyers hollow where old man rehmeyer was killed because he was supposebly a warlock and cast a hex on some guy. there was a book written about it called HEX. they said the walls in the house would bleed on certain nights.
the area is now called spring valley park. when I was a teenager we use to go hangout here hoping to see "something". I do believe this part of my childhood is the whole reason I couldn't sleep for weeks after seeing blair witch.

The thing I don't understand... Is, assuming for the sake of arguement this is real, and there actually are these gates to Hell... Why on Earth would anyone want to use them?...  I could understand if they beleived the gates would take them to someplace like Paradise, or Heaven - or even Coney Island... But Hell...?

All that being said, I don't for a moment believe any of this - every single 'paranormal' and historical point has been debunked repeatedly - and it just seems so rediculously "out there" that (IMO) anyone with an IQ above room temperature would see that it's just an Urban Myth, a campfire "ghost story" at best...
