Reily’s Pizza

Reily is a small town located between Cincinnati and Oxford. For those of you who know of Reily, it’s probably because you either live/d there, saw a kickass concert there (Ted Nugent shut the town down), or because you’ve been to Reily’s Pizza.

It’s pretty much the only business in town. Maybe another bar. Handful of houses. That’s it.

If they get 30 customers in a day, that means the entire town of Reily ate, twice.

Reily’s Pizza has some delicious food and tasty beer. They’ve been around for a long time, and for almost just as long, they’ve also been known to be haunted.

I forgot all about them being haunted until I talked to my dad the other day, and he told me about something that happened to him while in there.

I’ve been to the place twice, once years ago and once this past summer with my dad. My dad goes all the time, and has for years. He told me about a recent incident and mentioned how he had forgotten it was haunted until that happened, then he remembered something that had happened to him back in 1988 or so.

Which do you want me to tell you first? That one? Okay.

He had stopped in with two of his buddies. They sat down at a table and got a pitcher of beer. Three big guys sat at a table over from them, and they had some pitchers, too. With everybody drinking, and everybody in a mood to fight, the group of guys started talking crap to my dad’s two buddies, because they were big guys.

His two buddies started talking crap back to them and said they wanted to fight. My dad tried talking them out of it when out of nowhere their pitcher of beer flew off of their table and landed on the other guy’s table, splashing beer all over them. They got pissed off and were ready to fight while my dad was dragging his buddies out of the bar. As he was, he kept an eye on the other guys, and suddenly their pitcher of beer flew off of their table and hit my dad and his buddies, soaking them.

The Final Inn

This is most likely the final entry for The Inn, and sadly, I don’t have a paranormal story to share. Instead, I thought since my wife no longer works there, there’s no problem in saying who they really are. If you haven’t figured it out by now on your own, of course. My wife had worked for Great Wolf Lodge in Mason, Ohio for the last 5 years or so. She enjoyed her time there and I especially loved all of the paranormal stuff going on around the place. Unfortunately, she had to move on, so I’ll probably never step foot in there again.

The Great Wolf Lodge is the next door neighbor of King’s Island, which is a known hot spot for paranormal activity and was even featured on Syfy’s Ghost Hunters. They were both built on the same land where a powder keg plant had many accidents and explosions and fatalities. As a matter of fact, the tiny cemetery that sits on King’s Island’s property, is actually located right in between the two places.

Go rent a room for the night and do some overnight investigating. Hang out in the lobby overnight. See if anything pops up. It just might.

As for me, I’ll probably never go back, but I will miss the place. So long, Great Wolf Lodge paranormal activity.
