“Sunland Hospital” was demolished nearly two decades ago, but locals still know the story well. It was a treatment center for those with severe mental handicaps, and for many years it was a poorly-kept secret that the children there weren’t treated with the very best of care. Finally it was shut down in the early 1980s.

From that point on, people claimed to see weird lights and sounds emanating from the abandoned building, and it didn’t take long for it to become the #1 spot in Orlando for bored kids and ghost hunters to check out at night, looking for a good scare. Some got just that – apparitions of little boys and girls appeared at various spots throughout the building.

The abandoned hospital remained a popular night-time diversion for Orlando’s youth until the mid-1990s, when one unfortunate kid fell through an elevator shaft and was seriously injured. That incident led to the building being demolished soon after. Today the site is a playground, and some claim that swings can be seen moving entirely on their own, as if being ridden by the spirits of long-dead children.
