We would not have guessed that our sleepy little town of Fountain Hills would have its fair share of slightly strange, haunted, and downright scary paranormal stories. We rounded up a collection of stories that were compiled from personal accounts from readers and sources online. Caution that these stories are not meant for children’s eyes and not for the faint of heart. We will not be responsible for any sleepless nights or grown adults all of a sudden needing night lights. Please do not attempt to disturb any occupants or locations.
I work in Fountain Hills and every Sunday night around 2:20 am (early Monday morning) when I stand outside to smoke, a bicyclist appears out of nowhere, he has lights on his helmet and bicycle, no noise, just black shadow with a helmet on.
He rides in Front of the place I work and once he is by, he just disappears. I wonder if someone was killed on this road. It is pretty scary. Two other employees have witnessed this with me on different nights. – Linda
In a house in Fountain Hills there is a house where they have visitors around the house at night. Looking at you though a mirror or just standing there in the master bedroom which was never used do to the cold chills you got when you walked in or by.
Those are just some of the creeps that went on at this house in Fountain Hills. To top it off this was one of the first houses to be built in Fountain Hills.
One night about 12 am I was driving to pick my niece up from work. I live on the north side of town. It was dark and I passed this man on an old three wheel bike and he was moving slow. He had long socks with a long curly beard.
I drove past and it freaked me out so I turned around to see him again and he was gone. – Jerry
One night while I was driving east on Glenbrook Drive, I saw big bright yellow lights just over the horizon possibly over the reservation. They were not aircraft lights. They were too big to be a flashlights, searchlights, or headlights. As I drove down the hill, and came back up, they were gone. – Cheryl
Lady In White
There are numerous sightings of the mysterious lady in white roaming the streets of Fountain Hills at night. She has been seen on Saguaro Blvd. Another resident reports driving down Grande Blvd. at night where she saw a woman in white in the middle of the road. She stopped and got out of the car, but the woman was nowhere to be found.
My bedroom in Fountain Hills has a ghost. Time to time I have heard it growl and also have felt cold hands on my feet… Grande Blvd. -Anonymous
Haunted House on Keymar
Keymar Dr. House on the southside right as the street curves. My father built this home in the late 80s. I witnessed a black figure in my room at night. It was two dimensional but extremely muscular and lean. My room was the first room in the hallway the most southern bedroom. I understand this home has been renovated and expanded since we left in the early 90s. Beware. – Anonymous
I never felt comfortable in our condo. As soon as you would walk in, you would feel pressure in the air. My dog would constantly bark seemingly without reason in a certain room. Something would constantly knock on my night stand, and wake me up at night. I felt so much better when we moved out. -Anonymous
Strange Creature on the Beeline
I was driving east on the Beeline going towards Ft. Mcdowell casino as I approached the lights turning left at the casino’s first entrance I saw a creature with coarse short hair like a bull. It stood upright about 7 ft tall with large horns on it’s head the horns were large and curled at the ends.
It seemed like it was trying to cross the highway but turned away as I was making a left turn at the light. I didn’t see it’s face or eye’s since it quickly turned around heading back into the brush.
I made a slow u-turn hoping to get a better look but ready to take off if it got too close. It shook me up so much I went back home and abandoned any plans I had with friends waiting for me at the casino.
I just moved to Fountain Hills and it is very very dark and creepy here at night. I know what I saw was real it was only 12 ft from me. Makes me wonder about all these ”missing” hikers that are never found. – Allen
