Haunted houses are cool, but giant haunted ships are way better. That’s how we do Halloween in Tampa. One of the most anticipated haunted events of the year returns the weekend of September 22 aboard the American Victory Ship at 615 Channelside Drive. The spooky festivities continue on select nights through October 22.
In the sixth iteration of UNDead in the Water, a mysterious female apparition and her possessed cult threaten passengers across 60,000 square feet of cavernous cargo holds and open-air decks. Flesh of the fallen adorn the bulkheads and passageways as you make your way through the forsaken vessel. Of the crew that survived, some have entered into the ranks of The Gathering, while the remaining are on the run from her cult, their screams and moans echoing throughout the bellows of the ship.
Tampa’s wild haunted ship returns for its 6th season
The American Victory Ship is a 1945 WWII ship that served in WWII, Korea and Vietnam. Built in only 55 days in the California Shipyard, it stands as an American icon and national treasure as it is only one of 3 fully operational WWII Victory class vessels in the country. This floating museum is open Monday from noon to 5pm, and Tuesday through Saturday from 10am to 5pm. The ship embarks on a Relive History Cruise once per year and sails through the Channel for an exciting day of history, fun, music, food and more.
Those interested in reserving tickets can do so in advance online. The event will take place on a select 13 nights in September and October leading up to Halloween. This attraction can be quite scary, so it’s not recommended for young children.
