WINDBER, Pa., Oct. 21 (UPI) -- A massive Ouija board constructed on top of a reportedly haunted hotel in Pennsylvania could be the world's largest.

Blair Murphy hopes to have his 44 foot-by-29 foot Ouija board, constructed atop his home in the Grand Midway Hotel, featured in the Guinness Book of World Records, according to CBS Philadelphia.

"Well, for years, the roof itself was a canvas waiting for a painting. We were talking about the Guinness Book of World Records, and they said they don't have a large Oujia board yet," he told WJAC. "So they said they would create a category if we made the painting."

Murphy, an independent filmmaker from Los Angeles, purchased the notoriously haunted hotel with friends 15 years ago and ultimately converted it into his home.

Murphy said the Ouija board, which he created in conjunction with local artists, could stir some controversy in the Western Pennsylvania community.

"[In] the town itself, I have no idea what the reaction is," he said. "It's a pretty conservative town, so I'm sure there's some mixed feelings out there."

He plans to have the board completed on Halloween and will offer nighttime tours of his home for $10 per person.
