A Haunted Cruise Ship on San Francisco Bay
You’ve got your costume-be it a vampish vampire or a strapping buccaneer-now it’s time to show it off. Isn’t that what it’s all about? Halloween is a fun time in San Francisco, and there’s no stopping the party train-or the party boat for that matter.
Speaking of party boats, for a truly exceptional Halloween experience, get tickets to the Titanic Masquerade Halloween Party Cruise. Enter the haunted Titanic, where ghosts and ghouls are waiting to scare you out of your wits! Don’t worry-liquid courage will be in abundance, brought to you by the 4-hour open bar. Two DJs will spin house and Top 40, so be sure to wear your dance shoes.
No Scary Dreams at this Party
Rather stay on dry land? Not a problem. Nightmare on Van Ness is the party for you. Held at the gorgeous art deco Regency Center theater, this party features live performances in hip-hop, Top 40, and Electro dance music. Enter the costume contest for a chance to win cash prizes.
Tickets to Nightmare on Van Ness must be purchased in advance, and you must be 21 or older to attend. Tickets start at $25, and go up to $1,500 for a 10-person table. That’s also known as the Freddy Krueger Booth, which includes VIP seating near the stage and 3 bottles of the drink of your choice.
