This Midwestern ‘ghost ship’ will take you on a spooky journey
Are you brave enough to take a ride on the ghost ship?
The Wisconsin Dells is best known for all of its fun water parks, but did you know it’s also home to a unique haunted attraction? According to the official website, the Dells of Wisconsin “the scariest and most intense attraction” is the ghost ship of Dells. Guests begin their journey at 11 Broadway in downtown Wisconsin Dells, where they board a boat to take them upriver. This is where things get scary! The website states:
As dusk falls over the river, climb aboard the boat that will ply the black waters en route to the haunted canyon. On this spooky moonlit cruise you will hear the legend of Whiskey Jack and the ancient mining colony that gave the canyon its ghoulish reputation.Then it’s time to see if the ghostly story is true, as your boat docks in an ancient cave and you continue the quest on foot, through the virgin forest and in the dark and winding corners of the canyon! “
Since you will be spending most of your time outdoors, it is recommended that you wear comfortable walking shoes and dress appropriately for the weather. Here are some cool photos to show you what you’re getting into:
If you’re interested in a trip to the Dells this month, the Ghost Ship is open Friday and Saturday nights until Halloween. It is recommended that you purchase your tickets online in advance, and you can do so HERE.
If you’d rather visit a haunted attraction closer to you, there are LOTS here in Eastern Iowa (no boats, though)! You can view a list of them HERE.
