Ghost Ship Harbor will be held on USS Salem in Quincy for Halloween season 2017.
Ghost Ship Harbor is a totally Immersive Haunted Attraction new to the Boston area in 2016. When arriving at Ghost Ship Harbor you will feel like you are in an alternate universe. We have an activation area where you will find our food area, entertainment area serving beer and wine, tarot card reading, Midway games, VR experience and more. The Attractions take place on the deck of a 718 foot battleship. For 2017 we have revamped all of our attractions so it will look and feel brand new. We have also added a brand new attraction called Fear No Evil!
Fear No Evil
New for 2017 we are taking you through all things phobia! You will enter the dreams of a little girl named Isabelle who has been having nightmares of epic proportions. Fear no Evil will test any and all phobias while you jump from dream to dream containing clowns, spiders, claustrophobia and many more evil things.
