The Bay Area’s Only Haunted Attraction on Board a Historic Aircraft Carrier Located in the San Francisco Bay - The Haunted Hornet
Alameda, CA September 19th 2015: NOW HEAR THIS, NOW HEAR THIS! It was announced today that Alameda is seeing strange new creatures on the pier near the USS Hornet. With the heavy fog rolling back into the bay area, a new event has taken up residence on board one of the Navy’s most haunted aircraft carriers.
“We are extremely thrilled to bring you this one of a kind event” said Joshua Overturf, “This is the only aircraft carrier in the world that has a haunted attraction on the ship itself, with the added benefit of the ship being actually haunted. We’re bringing you to a new level in fear.” ScareCo, Inc, is excited to launch the 2015 Halloween season with its Grand Opening of the Haunted Hornet on Friday, October 2nd in Alameda, California, which is prepared to scare patrons out of their minds and overload their senses.
The Haunted Hornet will bring you ON BOARD the historic aircraft carrier USS Hornet, and send you through several areas of the ship dressed out in ways like you have never seen them before! Each space is packed with special effects and talented actors that will both amaze and terrify patrons over and over again. There will be zombies, monsters, creatures and more thrills than ever!
After being decommissioned in 1970, the USS Hornet aircraft carrier was used to house a secret research facility specializing in deep sea research and Bermuda Triangle phenomena. Undergoing secret and extreme retrofitting, the ship and its crew set out to document what they find. While out at sea, the crew were involved in the discovery of an unexplained occurrence which began to affect the entire team and the ship. Immediately after, the program was cancelled, items locked into storage and the ship was returned to Puget Sound for final mothballing.
Now 45 years later, we are finally able to access these secret parts of the ship….
ScareCo, Inc. kicks off its Halloween season this Friday October 2nd, running through the weekend. Normal operation is from Thursday through Sunday through November 1st, 2015.
