Can there be a more badass boat on the entire Ohio? This splendid, extravagant Halloween dream is one of the nation’s top haunts and not to be missed. All the action takes place along a tour of a rusting riverboat. Deep within the belly of this horrific craft you will find traditional, confrontational scares from the talented cast and well-executed animatronics that lurch and reach for you as you pass them. High tempo and realistic, the fear comes from all directions. Makeup and props are Hollywood quality. It’s the cruise of the damned and a devilish delight.
