Set Sail For Horror At Ghost Ship Harbor

Last year an exciting new haunted attraction docked in Quincy. Ghost Ship Harbor features three frightful “scare zones” aboard the historic USS Salem that founder Matt DiRoberto promises will “scare the ship out of you.”

The overall premise of Ghost Ship Harbor is that a deadly virus has swept through the population, wiping out everyone in its path. Seeking refuge aboard the USS Salem is humanity’s last hope…or is it their worst nightmare??

The main attraction takes place on the 718 foot deck of the ship and features the Contagion zone, the Plague zone, and the new for 2017, Fear No Evil experience. This area is designed around common phobias such as clowns, spiders and claustrophobia. You will feel as if you’ve been immersed in a nightmare!

The additional Paranormal experience is available to VIP guests only. It is led by “paranormal experts,” Don DeCristofaro and Ryleigh Black. During this half hour session, DeCristofaro and Black regale guests with tales of the ship’s paranormal beginnings.  After, high tech paranormal equipment is used to contact some of the Salem’s ghostly residents.  ‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍

DeCristofaro founded the Greater Boston Paranormal Associates and was among the first to investigate the Salem’s dark past. Black has been a paranormal investigator/audio expert since 1994 and claims to “have spirits that like to come and talk with me, so it makes for an interesting night out in the field.”

Ghost Ship Harbor features an entertainment area serving beer, wine, food, costumed characters, tarot card readings, midway games, a virtual reality experience, and much more!

Open Thursday through Sunday until Halloween.
