Want to amp things up a bit? Opt for the RIP Experience and immerse yourself in the Mitchell Massacre! For those brave (or crazy) enough to try it, the crew of the William S. Mitchell will make sure your experience is not one you will quickly forget—even though you may want to. Warning…this hands-on, immersive experience is not for the faint of heart. Guests can expect a more interactive and extended tour of the ship designed for death with access to never seen before areas and the potential for complete separation from the civilized world.
