    If your childhood memories of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disney World causes you to break into a cold sweat and tremble in fear, do we have a Halloween night suggestion for you.

    Possibly more frightening than any haunted house is the Halloween Lakefront Escape Cruise on the Spirit of Chicago boat. 

    Imagine being trapped on a boat for two hours over murky Lake Michigan under the wide, dark sky, not really knowing just what is floating beneath you.

    Yeah, that’s pretty creepy.

    For $64.90, you get an open bar package, small plates buffet, two hours of cruising and a costume contest on Friday, Oct. 31. Boarding is at 7:30 p.m.; the boat sails from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m.

    Call 866-273-2469 or make reservations online. 

    For a family-friendly version of the ride, check out the Halloween Lunch Cruise Saturday, Oct. 25. Boarding begins at 11 a.m.; the boat sails from noon to 2 p.m.  $33.90 per adult and $15 per child ages 3 to 11 includes lunch, treats, a kids’ costume contest, a balloon artist, DJ providing music and goodie bags for the kids. 

    Make reservations for the lunch cruise by calling the same number above, or book online.
