The Bay Area's Most Anticipated Haunted Attraction - Haunted Hornet - Returns to the Historic Aircraft Carrier USS Hornet, Located in the San Francisco Bay
NOW HEAR THIS, NOW HEAR THIS! It was announced today that Alameda will be seeing strange creatures on the pier near the USS Hornet; when the heavy fog rolls back into the bay area this fall, something will have taken up residence on one of the Navy's most haunted aircraft carriers.
As Haunted Hornet's story goes, in 1975, five years after being decommissioned, the USS Hornet was modified to undergo a top secret mission to the Bermuda Triangle. After six months at sea, they finally found...something. What they found wreaked havoc on the ship and her instruments, so the mission was scrubbed and Hornet returned to her decommissioned status at Alameda Point. Only now have we been able to access areas of the ship that were affected. What did they find? Where did it come from? Come see for yourself onboard Haunted Hornet!
"We are extremely thrilled to bring back this one of a kind event" said Joshua Overturf, "We're bringing you to a new level in fear." Haunted Hornet is a high impact, actor driven, and immersive seasonal Halloween attraction held on board the Historic Aircraft Carrier USS Hornet which is located on Alameda, in the San Francisco bay. Recently rated number 23 on a list of "Must See Haunted Attractions" across the U.S. by TheScareFactor.com, listed as the "Number One Haunt to see in Northern California as well as being included in the Fascinating World of Random book "The Fright Seekers Guide to Random Haunts ...And Other Horrific Things."
