UNDead in the Water on the American Victory | Polk County Moms

In late September, the American Victory Ship will shift from its home berth to Sparkman Wharf, joining a haunted experience both by land and by sea. UNDead in the Water, Tampa’s premier nautical haunted attraction, opens October 1 and will operate twelve nights throughout the month, providing thrills through Halloween night. This exciting new location allows UNDead in the Water to compliment the Haunted Wharf, which is in its third season at Sparkman Wharf and operating six nights in October.

“Sparkman Wharf’s dynamic downtown waterfront experience has become a favorite Tampa landmark,” said Bill Kuzmick, President of the American Victory Ship. “We’re thrilled to be working with Sparkman Wharf’s talented team to cultivate an immersive haunted experience for Tampa Bay and beyond.”

In its fourth iteration, a new UNDead in the Water theme, Save Our Souls, threatens passengers across 60,000 square feet of cavernous cargo holds and open-air decks. The American Victory Ship has drifted back to Tampa after surviving a violent hurricane in the Bermuda Triangle. The frantic and terrified crew tells horrific stories of a mysterious female apparition. Who is she and what does she want?

The attraction features live scare actors and thrilling special effects through a nail-biting path aboard the ship, and is recommended for ages 11 and up.

Capacity is limited, and advance purchase for specific time slots is required.
