NORFOLK, Va. - The Battleship Wisconsin has been home to a lot of history.

"It's got a lot of history to it," said Dustin Uhl, the Senior Exhibits Manager at Nauticus. "There's been a lot, thousands and thousands of sailors who have been on that ship. It's been through three wars so there's a lot of history that could be haunting the ship."

But this Halloween, things have gotten even spookier. The ship has been taken over by alien invaders!

"The aliens begin to stalk everyone on the ship and as guests move through the route, it's turned down really dim and they run into guests who have seen the alien," says Uhl. "They get get reports back and each time they meet one of the witnesses of the alien the encounters get worse and worse."

You make your way through the halls of the ship on an unguided tour, meeting frightened guests along the way.

They recommend visitors be at least 13, because this thing gets scary!

"The experience gets really frightening, it starts of simple but it builds," says Uhl. "We've had a few children come down … they’ve come up from there screaming and crying... We've frightened a few adults, as well, so be prepared."

The ship is open Friday through Sunday from 7 p.m. until 10 p.m.
