Have you been to Ghost Boat Season of the Witch? Then share photos of your experience!

Wisconsin Dells legends tell of ancient canyons buried deep in the rocky banks of the Wisconsin river, where dark things haunt the passageways and shadows move in the moonlight. What lurks inside? Take an eerie, after-dark journey up-river by boat and into the shadow-haunted passages on foot, and find out.

The Ghost Boat is Wisconsin Dells’ scariest and most intense attraction, offering two chilling adventures: JOURNEY INTO HAUNTED CANYON (summer season) and SEASON OF THE WITCH (weekends in September and October). Climb aboard for an experience you’ll never forget . . . assuming you come back.

Season Of The Witch:
There are those who believe the wilderness just beyond the borders of Wisconsin Dells is home to an ancient, evil entity, a malevolent monster whose power waxes in the dying days of Autumn. This is the Witch of Wisconsin Dells, and those who dare can join in a fright-filled Halloween season journey to its haunted lair. You’ll embark at dusk on a boat filled with fellow explorers (and a few uninvited ghastly guests), hearing legends and folklore of the Dells as you ride upriver. Then comes a walk through a forest haunted by all manner of ghost and ghoul, vampire and werewolf, leading you straight to the dark heart of the witch’s canyon crypt! A Halloween adventure that will haunt your nightmares!
Some locations may have last minute updates due to changing circumstances. Please visit the attraction's website and/or social media before going to double-check that they are open.

    This really is a one-of-a-kind attraction. You certainly pay handsomely for it and it has its flaws but its amazing nonetheless. It all starts in the historic boathouse in Downtown Dells, where you line up and get ready to head down to the waterfront through old, twisty tunnels. Once on the boat you head out upriver for a lovely 15 minute ride to Witch's Gulch where a fantastic haunt is produced in the woods...but the line control is ABYSMAL. It takes a lot of work to separate yourself from the rest of the crowd, but even if you manage to do so, once you reach the turnaround point forget about it. Last time I was there it was wall-to-wall people with zero movement for at least 10 minutes. Really blows the immersion. There's a separate path back for some of the way which is nice. Once you make it back to the boat it's another nice ride back to the dock. While it's pretty expensive, I do this every year and love it a lot. I just wish they could figure out how to control the crowd at the midway point. ...I also wish they could bar the typical local trailer trash that shows up drunk and ruins the ride for everyone, but that's another story completely...one I'm sure you don't need to hear if you've ever been up to the area.
