All Creeped Out

Go aboard the Hornet in Alameda for scary fun this month.


What are all these ghosts and ghouls doing aboard the USS Hornet? Well, they’re certainly not doing the Transylvania Twist. It appears that they’re doing the bash … the Monster Bash.

This premier haunted attraction and party is a-swingin’ shivery shindig with live music by Less Presson and the Nails and Flock of Seagirls, as well as ’80s dance favorites spun by DJ Terrifying Tom LG. Arrive in costume; best costume wins a $500 cash prize.

Oct. 29, 7:30 p.m.-1 a.m. $40. USS Hornet, 707 W. Hornet Ave., Alameda.

That’s not the only creepy-crawly calamity on deck this Halloween season. Throughout October, the ship will be transformed into the Haunted Hornet. In 1975, the USS Hornet left port for a secret mission to investigate the Bermuda Triangle. What they found was so bone chilling, so terrifying that the mission was aborted, and all record of it destroyed. But that didn’t stop something from coming back home with the Hornet. This Halloween horror turns the USS Hornet into a spooky horror maze with actors, special effects, and a creepy storyline.

Enter if you dare. Oct. 8-31, Fridays and Saturdays, 7 p.m.–midnight; Sundays, 7-11 p.m. $30-$35. USS Hornet, 707 W. Hornet Ave., Alameda.
