For 22 years, this ghoulish steamboat has emerged from the fog of the Ohio River for the Halloween season — and this year is no different. 


Named as one of the Top 13 scariest locations for haunted houses by Haunt World Magazine, this ghastly attraction features 40 hair-raising areas of fright, 20,000-square-feet of gore and a total of 30 minutes of horrifying spectacles not meant for the faint of heart. 

Old haunts, such as the Vampire Overlord and Rat Lady, return and the newly opened crew quarters and machine shop are sure to paralyze anyone who wonders into them. 

7-11 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday. Through Nov. 2. $18-$22. 101 Riverboat Row, Newport, Ky., 859-740-2293, ussnightmare.com
