Downtown Cheyenne Arcade Has A Haunted History
Flippers Family Arcade is one of the happiest places in downtown Cheyenne, but there may be some shady characters lurking in the shadows after hours.
Rumors of ghosts haunting the building at 1617 Capitol Avenue date back to the venue's days as The Cheyenne Club. Not to be confused with the original Cheyenne Club, which was a private members-only social club for rich cattle barons on 17th and Warren from 1880 to 1936, The Cheyenne Club on Capitol Avenue was a rowdy saloon and country music concert hall.
During its heyday, several employees reportedly witnessed the ghost of a man hanging in the corner. The building later became a Mexican restaurant where staff members allegedly saw another apparition, a man in a trench coat who mysteriously disappeared when he was approached.
According to the staff at Flippers, they haven't seen any ghosts...yet.
