The Haunted USS Orleck brings Halloween fun to Lake Charles

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Halloween weekend in SWLA brings plenty of spooky activities to those who enjoy a little fright. The USS Orleck in Lake Charles was turned into a haunted house.

"We've been busy all week," Penny Miller, Marketing Director of the Orleck said of the haunted ship. "Last night at one point there was a two hour wait to get on the ship."

Plenty of people young and old waited in a line that would take them aboard the Orleck for some haunted fun. But the ship isn't really haunted.

Miller said the actors aboard the ship are part of a group called The Blood Family Crew. The actors travel to different non-profits organization to help out with haunted houses and Miller says the Orleck lucked out this Halloween.

"We've talked to them about it and they found their new home aboard the ship, so we're going to keep them on board as long as they want to keep coming back haunting every year," Miller said.

The USS Orleck will stay haunted until Oct. 31 and opens at 6 p.m. Miller said the ship is still open during the day for tours.
