The Haunted Guided Tours of Pier 23
Visit the remains of a cursed and abandoned shipyard, long condemned and forgotten, its gates locked and chained to keep outsiders out... and the insiders in. Meet the tortured souls who were left imprisoned for eternity in this interactive, theatre-style guided tour. A former dockhand reluctantly shows the way while describing the horrid stories of how the shipyard and its workers sank into the deep grasp of evil. Please read this warning before entering Pier 23.
The Spooky Wharf
Howling Halloween fun, recommended for ages 10 and under. Tame the flames of the Dragon's Breath, stir up something sinister in the Witch's Cauldron, tangle with the terrors of Heebie Jeebie's Spider Cave, or test the turbulent waters on the Stormy Seas Bumper Boats! Creepy crawlies, maritime monsters and goodie bags abound at this "lights-on" tent of frightful fun for the wee ones! Activities in the Spooky Wharf include:
Trick or Treat
Every great haunt has its tricks and treats! Start your journey by filling your Halloween sack at the Shipyard.
The Dragon's Breath
Dare to face the dreaded beast? Reach inside the Dragon’s heated jaws and retrieve a bone from his last meal. Find the “wish” bone to take home a prize, or risk getting burned!
The Witch's Brew
Curdle, bubble, a heathen’s stew, the number’s a secret she keeps from you! Choose a pumpkin from the wicked witch’s cauldron. Only the fortunate few who avoid the curse take home a prize!
The Alligator Pond
Test your lucky lure and fish a prize from the alligator’s mouth. Hold steady and don’t tickle his tongue, or SNAP! Your luck will run out!
Visit the sands where pirate ghosts lurk and precious items have been left behind. Comb the beach for the sunken treasures of vessels lost long ago…
Let your imagination roar! Unleash a monster of your own making by creating your own “spooktactular” mask. Be sure to take it home for some extra Halloween shrills!
The Tunnels of Heebie Jeebie. The light is dim at the end of these dark tunnels so don’t get lost! Explore a nest full of arachnid creepy crawlies and keep a look out for the largest one... He’s got eight eyes on you!
Batten down the hatches as the waters begin to stir on this childhood favorite: bump-in-the-night bumper boats!
