Visit the only haunted house on a ship in Texas: Haunting on the Blue Ghost opens Friday

Haunting on the Blue Ghost, a spooky experience aboard USS Lexington, opens tonight.

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — 24 more days until Halloween and things are getting spooky on Corpus Christi Bay.

If you're looking for thrills and chills, why not visit the largest haunted house on a ship in Texas? Actually, it's the only haunted house on a ship in Texas. Haunting on the Blue Ghost, a spooky experience aboard USS Lexington, opens tonight.

The bravest souls will explore more than 80 compartments on two decks of the historic ship through ladders and passageways.

"Of course, you probably hear the stories,” USS Lexington Executive Director Steve Banta told our Lexis Greene last year. “The ship is haunted, there is definitely some strange things that happen on the ship that are hard to explain."

The Blue Ghost, as the ship is known, is the perfect place for some creepy fun. The ship got its nickname after being reported sunk during World War II no less than four times by the Japanese. The ship always seemed to come back, though, leading the propagandist Tokyo Rose to nickname her “The Blue Ghost.”

  • October 7 & 8

  • October 22 & 23
