DULUTH, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) - Organizers say it's a frightening experience that's already caused people to wet their pants and go into panic attacks.

We're talking about the William A. Irvin Haunted Ship.

There's new management this year, and a new experience.
Several zombies help make the ship come alive, or should we say "dead".

The trip through the ship involves many senses including your nose.
This a frightening experience, so organizers say no child under the age of 12 will be admitted without a parent.

"We actually included smell this year so you can actually smell the different rooms. We have things like rotting decay and charred corpse, a lot of things that go in your nose and really makes this an all encompassing experience here," said Jake Roeber, a technical director and production manager for the Haunted Ship.

The haunted ship typically runs Thursday through Saturday and then on Halloween during the month of October.

If you bring in a canned good to donate, you will get a dollar off admission
