USS Nightmare
This had mixed reviews from our group. It has live animals which is original and different for a haunt. One member of our group is afraid of mice, so the guy holding the rat really put her over the edge. There are some special effects that really put this in the top of haunted attractions. The boat and story line are awesome. The line area really joins in on the theme which is great. However, the boat is huge which makes for a long haunt but many areas were lacking. Some areas were great and others not so much. Be interested to see if the lacking areas grow as the years go by. Also, they let groups go in to fast, i dont want to see the actors hiding as they finish scaring the last group.

On a real boat!
We had a great time! So entertaining. It is built on an old steamboat. I am not sure Disney could make a Haunted House look so good! It is a must see if you are in Downtown Cincinnati.
