If you can dream it or fear it, you'll have to face it at this year's Haunted Ship.
"It's going to be absolutely intense," Production Manager Alex Dunning said.
This year, it's a "Nightmare on Harbor Drive."
"We have some paranormal type of things, we have classic Hollywood type of themes. Freddie Krueger makes an appearance at one point," Dunning said.
They're delving into phobias on the Haunted Ship.
"There's going to be a lot of light, dark, there's going to be some claustrophobia in new ways," Dunning said.
Plus, he said with the new "It" movie that recently came out, they had to have some fun with clowns.
Dunning and his team have also expanded the route thrill-seekers will meander through, so it will take between 40-45 minutes.
"Every year we try to amp it up more and more and more, especially with Hollywood and the new It movie, it's such a high standard we have to reach," Dunning said. "So we completely revamped this entire year."
It's not for the weak at heart or the weak-stomached.
"We've been using smells now for the past two years. People have such an interesting reaction," Dunning said. "Last year, we had two people throw up because it was just so bad."
The Haunted Ship is open Thursday-Saturday. If you bring a canned good, you can get $2 off your ticket.
