The William A. Irvin will remain closed to the public for the rest of the 2018 season, including the Halloween season, due to construction and cleanup along the seawall and in the slip the ship calls home.
Every time I go on the William A. Irvin and stay the night, something new is discovered, some new story comes along to remind me how many people have seen or heard something that scares them or confirms the fact that the ship is haunted.
Thousands of thrill-seekers from all over the country make their way aboard the William A. Irvin Haunted Ship each October, enjoying the frights organizers and volunteers invest months of planning and preparation into for the scariest month of the year.
Every October the William A. Irvin transforms into a floating haunted house with various story lines and many monsters hidden throughout the ship to scare the wits out of people. The ship has scared thousands every year with the help of some good actors.
For the second year in a row the William A Irvin has invited Duluth Paranormal Society to stay aboard the ship overnight and investigate again this year. Last year they collected stories and some film, using new technology and scientific methods to record proof or disprove. Click here to see.
