Review This Haunt
  • Email Verified Saving the USS Edson one Scare at a time!

    The Edson is always on my Spooky To Do List! The people who put on the event, and all the people who volunteer, are all so passionate about saving the Edson and making it the top Scare Location in the State! The costumes, decor, and ambience are perfect for this old ship! And of course, the Edson has lots of spookiness without any help- the creaking and groaning of metal, and the resident ghosts may even make an appearance... if you are brave enough!

  • Email Verified Beautiful ship, full of surprises!

    The timing of the scares was great! As well as the underlying feel of the ship, which put me on edge before I was even aboard! They were very creative with their scares, and when I asked around, not many had the same story twice!

  • Amazing!

    This is one of the best experiences I’ve had with haunted houses. The ship is amazing, the people are incredible, and they put together a spooky ambiance that’s appropriate for pre-teens through 80 yr olds, and I saw all of those this last weekend. Seriously… just go next year! It’s great fun. ❤️💀👻

  • Email Verified A great experience

    We drove 1 1/2 hours to get here. We all had a great time. Very unusual first because it was on a huge war ship. Then the creepiness factor, scary scenes and awesome scary characters just kept adding to the Edson Experience. If you have to drive far spring for the Express entery.

    Thank you for the awesome review!!! Glad to see it was worth the long drive! This review also added to the Edson experience! We got a new fire pit this year and had to test it out after scaring for the night. Nothing like fresh mean cooked over an open flame!!! Thank again for the review and the meal! Much appreciated!

  • If you're debating on a haunt to go to, pick this one.

    Me and my girlfriend went here on the first weekend of October and it was our first time experiencing this haunt. I didn't go in expecting to be blown away but I left genuinely impressed. People go on about how St Charles or Jackson or Holly has the best haunts in MI, but I didn't feel as immersed as I was here. You don't see too many haunts on a warship so it was refreshing to experience something new. Overall this is in my top 5 haunts in MI and it's definitely worth the small price compared to other more expensive haunts.

    Thank you for the awesome review!!! We told him he could survive if he gave us a good review and sacrificed his girlfriend. Lets just say his girlfriend left the review for him, and he ended up in the slow-cooker for this weekends stew! Should be nice and tender by now! Thanks again for the great review! Oh!, and the sacrifice!

  • Email Verified Recipe for Fun!

    We've enjoyed this scare for 4 years and each time is a fun, new experience! The Edson is a beautiful piece of history that generates a unique energy and eerie excitement in the air. You approach the massively incredible ship - ominously backlit by moonlight - and climb aboard, taking in her grandeur and rich history. Passing mounted machine guns, you inhale one last breath of the crisp, fall, night air and cross the threshold. Fog and dim lights engulf you and your anticipation rises. With heightened senses, you twist and turn continuing deeper into the belly of the beast, climbing down ladder after ladder into the unknown abyss. Ofen being unable to decipher actors from props, you're on high alert as your eyes scan who or what's lurking in the darkness. The environment creates perfect opportunities to elicit frightful screams and fun jump scares. But don't let your guard down with such distractions... you never know who's following you or what will pounce from the shadows and strike again! Each room offers a new opportunity to look inside the mad scientists lair, at the zombie infirmary, or captains quarters of death. From strobe lights, death metal, chainsaws, and crazy chaos to claustrophobic, silent darkness .. your heart and mind race. The layered scares and adrenaline rush push your senses to the limit. It's the perfect recipe for fear and fun. Kudos to the two families who continually reinvent the scares and keep us coming back for more. We'll see you again next year!

    WOW! Thank you for this amazing review! We had no idea we dragged a writer down into the depths of the ship! Not only did they write an awesome review, they did it with only one hand. Monster George got a little hangry on the way down and needed a snack. It happens.... On a good note, the monsters were so moved by this review they apologized profusely, and agreed to let the reviewer live. They are now just held captive, tasked with writing new stories to read to the monsters before bedtime!

  • Email Verified unique and fun

    I really enjoyed it. it is such a unique location, amazing to walk through plus a lot of effort was put into the atmosphere. the lighting sets everything off just right. I It is such an awesome ship, really worth supporting as well.

    Thank you for the great review! The atmosphere is where its at! They never know when they'll be snatched into the bowels of the ship. Just like this reviewer. They wrote this great review because we said we'd let them go. Unfortunately the monsters decided they looked to tasty to give up!

  • Email Verified Ship is awesome!

    Many levels of climbing disorient you quickly and soon your passing many dark blind corners. Actors are all working hard and the scenes are detailed.

    Thank you for the great review! The monster are currently working hard getting the smoker ready to start making some jerky out of this reviewer! We need it to last a while, and be a good afternoon snack when needed!

  • Unique and scary fun experience

    Wow, how cool to go to a haunt on a destroyer! The characters did a great job scaring us! Very well done and a lot of work put into this! Being on the destroyer and feeling the coolness of the night added to the affect.

    Thank you for the great review! The reviewer must have overheard one of the monsters saying "Very well done, and lets put a lot of work into this one" He was actually talking about the meal we were in the process of making out of the reviewer! That made them giggle a little when they read the review. Thanks again for the awesome review and the very well done vitals!

    Thank you for the great review! It would have been longer but we were in the process of securing this sacrifice to the table, and they only had the use of one hand, and limited time. As far as sacrifices go, we give this one 5 pumpkins too! As far as blood squirts go, this one has the longest distance so far!

  • Unique and Fun!

    Fun time! We had a great time! Loved that it was on a ship! Be sure you are physically able to go up and down the ladders to maneuver between decks. Well worth your time to explore this unique haunted house.

    Thank you for the great review! Yes, the stairs gets the blood flowing! The monsters like that a lot! This reviewers blood started to flow a lot towards the last set of stairs. Lucky for them a monster was able to help them out! Now they have all the time in the world to explore the haunted house as a resident ghost!
