Newport, KY, August 2014 – It’s back. It’s haunted. And it’s open on Riverfest Day. The mangled, massive steamboat sitting along the Newport waterfront seems eerily out of place. But for Halloween enthusiasts, the return of the USS Nightmare signifies that fall is quickly approaching and the haunting season is imminent. As season 23 draws near, the USS Nightmare crewmembers are putting the final touches on this year’s show and are restlessly waiting to welcome “visitors” beginning with a special showing on Riverfest Day, Sunday, August 31. Built on an authentic wrecked steamboat, the USS Nightmare is annually one of the scariest and highest rated attractions in the Greater Cincinnati area making it the area’s best Halloween entertainment.
Come aboard, if you dare, and be among the first to experience this year’s tour which exposes the wicked past of the historic Death Dredge. On Riverfest Day, experience the show for a discounted ticket price of just $10 per person. (For even bigger savings, purchase online before Riverfest Day for just $8.) Ticket sales will begin at 3:30 p.m., and the show will be open from 4 to 8 p.m. Then, make your way back to your spot for the viewing of the spectacular fireworks display marking the unofficial end of summer.
