An Urban Legend is modern folklore with some truth, or the whole truth in it hidden within plain sight in defiance of The Supernatural Secrecy Pact. The paranormal tales can be told to the general public because it’s placed in the guise of being a myth so people can choose to believe it or not in light of no evidence being presented. Below is the first urban legend in a series of supernatural legends with a link to the next one at the end of the story. The complete list is at the end of this page.
The Horrific Tale Of The Phantom Tollbooth From Hell
The lone phantom tollbooth from hell randomly appears for some tourists after Midnight on various isolated US roadways that used to be apart of Route 66 or connected with it. They say if you pay the toll and pass through you will literally drive yourself straight to hell. Apparently back in 1984 a guy named Ralph Hanks was a toll booth worker who was suspected of being a serial killer. There was no proof but everyone knew it was true. One day a vigilante rammed his semi truck right through the booth smashing it to smithereens which killed Ralph in the process. A year later the ghostly tollbooth started to appear in the middle of nowhere manned by the hellishly hideous specter of the vengeful Ralph.
It’s a blue run down looking tollbooth with a fog of mist swirling around it along with a few unholy hell flames. It also has no identification on it signifying it belongs to a given State nor what the fare is. Although the word “HELL” is written in blood along with a pentagram that has a “666” in the middle. Ralph will first appear as he did when he was alive except he will be a ghastly pale white color and will give you a cold stare while holding his hand out. He will not speak unless you hand him money and then he will howl “Drive straight to hell!” as he laughs maniacally. His face will then turn to the ghoulishly monstrous image you see in the photo above. If for what ever reason you get to this point we strongly advise you to put your car in reverse and floor it the hell out of there. A Mystic Investigations employee shot the photo above but we don’t really know if you may indeed drive straight into hell since what might be considered hell exists in the 5th dimension. Some alleged witnesses have claimed to see cars driving into a wall of flames and then the tollbooth disappears into the macabre mist. Some allege that the 666 on the pentagram signified a hidden highway that exists on another plane of reality. A so called Route 666 if you will. You may very well have driven or walked through it without knowing since it would most likely be out of phase with our reality at the quantum level. If you spot a single blue tollbooth in the middle of nowhere surrounded by mist then we advise turning your vehicle around and finding another route. Please contact us immediately so we can attempt to eradicate both the booth and Ralph from our reality once and for all.
