ABOUT USS NORTH CAROLINA BATTLESHIP

The History:

The USS North Carolina Battleship was commissioned on April 9, 1941. She participated in every major conflict of the Pacific Theater during World War II. Despite the Japanese claiming to sink her on six occasions, she survived many close calls and earned 15 battle stars. Her most notorious incident occurred when she was struck by a Japanese torpedo in 1942. By the conclusion of the war she had suffered 10 casualties and 67 wounded.  

 

The Haunts:

This echo of past battles have left their mark on this magnificent warship. There have been claims of shadow figures, EVPS, and even full bodied apparitions appearing on the ship. The security team have often reported nearing voices during the middle of the night. Spirits are said to continue to roam the hallways and peer through portholes. 

The Investigation:

During this public investigation, you'll get to join our team for the night as we explore this historically haunted location. You will get to experience an opening vigil where we ground ourselves and then introduce ourselves to the spirits and invite them to interact with us for the night, several vigils that focus on using various ghost hunting tools and techniques, access to parts of the building that are normally off limits to the public and an period of self exploration where you can use your own equipment (or borrow Great State Paranormal's equipment) and partake in your own investigations. 

All tickets also include a free history tour of the Battleship during the day. 

Note for those with mobility challenges: This location can be very difficult to navigate. There are many steep staircases, ladders,  uneven floors, and doors with very high thresholds. We strongly advise those with mobility challenges to consider an alternative location. If you have any special request, please get in contact with us and we will do our best to find an accommodation that works for you and the USS North Carolina Battleship.
