The WWII-era ship is purportedly haunted with the spirits of past crew members.
A museum media release promises “a tour to some of the creepy-crawly parts of the purportedly ghost-inhabited ship, as well as a trip through a terrifying maze.”
Tours run Thursday through Sunday from 7pm to late, every weekend through October.
Monsters are likely to get in close proximity to participants; consequently the tour is not recommended for children under the age of 10, and pregnant women will be turned away.
Ship-safe Halloween costumes are welcome, but ScareCo, Inc., the tour operator, promises to eject without a refund anyone who misbehaves.
Tickets are $40.
Halloween festivities at the Hornet culminate in the ship’s annual Monsters Bash on Saturday, October 31, 2015 from 7:30pm to 1am.
All proceeds benefit the USS Hornet Museum.
