#364 ROOM 217 - The REAL Hotel that Inspired the Shining

By the 1970's, the once beautiful 'Stanley Hotel' looked like it was headed towards total demolition... That was, until one fateful night when the hotel received an unusual guest - Stephen King. King and his wife were the final two guests of the season and after what they experienced that night... it was no surprise. This was the hotel that would go on to inspire King's next book, THE SHINING

    01:05:02
    There are lots of things they don't teach you in schools: how to hot-wire a car, for example. But they really should teach children which shapes are paranormal. Because in the world of the paranormal, squares, circles, and rectangles are all safe, but triangles are apparently extremely deadly. The Bermuda Triangle, The Bridgewater Triangle, and now? The Alaska Triangle. Deep in Alaska lies a triangular area in which thousands of people and planes have gone missing without a trace over the last 70 years. Is it Bigfoot? Inter-dimensional beasts? An energy vortex? Or just plain bad luck? Time for investigators Kit and Rory to find out!
