Synopsis for "Who Haunts the Corridor of Chills?"
Amusement park owner Walt Dempsey makes a final inspection of his new park in Central City. While riding through the Tunnel of Terror, Dempsey is transformed into a bird-like Ornitho-Man. In bird form Dempsey begins destroying the park, prompting Flash to intervene. After a fierce battle, Flash defeats Dempsey using bright lights, changing him back to normal.
Flash investigates the source of trouble in the Tunnel of Terrors. However, he is overcome by a sudden paralyzing fear that prevents him from entering. Iris West decides to enter the tunnel and photograph the scene. Light from her camera, releases the Flash from his paralysis. He then rescues Iris when the monsters in the tunnel begin attacking her.
Flash enters the tunnel again with Iris's camera. He finds the source of the strange events which is a glowing crystal. The crystal is alive and explains that it is an alien who came to Earth millions of years ago to meet the Ornitho-Men. A nuclear war caused the crystal creature, Vardar Varr, to become buried underground until Dempsey unearthed him. Varr believes that humans started the war and wiped out the Ornitho-Men. Flash travels back in time and brings back proof that the Ornitho-Men started the war against each other. With the human race vindicated, Varr returns to his homeworld in peace.
