You Will Discover Things That Go Bump in the Night During a Haunted Tour of USS Lexington

This Friday, experience a ghost ship tour you’ll never forget! USS Lexington will be haunted from October 11th through November 2nd and the ghosts will be waiting for you! Check it out this weekend… if you dare.

Commissioned in 1943, USS Lexington set more records than any other Essex Class carrier in the history of naval aviation. The ship was the oldest working carrier in the U.S. Navy when decommissioned in 1991. An Essex-class carrier, Lexington was originally named the USS Cabot.
During World War II, final construction was being completed at Massachusetts’ Fore River Shipyard when the original carrier named USS Lexington sunk in the Coral Sea. The new carrier’s name was changed to Lexington.

There have been many accounts of unexplainable phenomena onboard the USS Lexington. Several soldiers have been killed on this boat. The most massive amount of death that occurred at once happened when an actual plane crashed into the ship. Many individuals have claimed that they have seen an apparition on the ship that appears to be a man from the Second World War era. When individuals see this apparition, they find that it quickly seems to fade out.

Several residual hauntings are said to occur on the ship. Residual hauntings are energy or emotionally heightened time in a certain area. Many individuals claim that they hear voices, screams, and even cries. In some instances, people have indicated that they have heard noises that sound similar to distant weapons being fired while onboard the USS Lexington.

The terrifying tour takes the bravest of souls down to the second and third decks of the WWII-era aircraft carrier to spaces never before opened to the public. You should be ready to handle steep ladders, dark corridors, creaky hatchways, and unimaginable sights, screams and sounds. This is an intense haunted experience – think twice before enlisting!
