Batman, the Joker, Omi, Jade, Uncle, Joey Wheeler and The Holiday Sock -
will pack their bags and flashlights and hit the road for one of the
most terrifying trips yet...the "Way Outta The Way Spooky Road Trip."
Scouring the country for the spookiest sites out there, the characters
will take viewers on a frightful trip around the country, only making
stops at the scariest locations they find, including haunted roads,
monster-filled lakes, terrifying bat caves and more! The "Way Outta The Way
Spooky Road Trip" will conclude on Saturday, October 30.

This past summer, Kids WB and the Queen Mary hosted the "Kids WB
Spooky Sleepover Sweepstakes," receiving more than 15,000 entries from
kids across the country who thought they had the guts to survive a
sleepover aboard one of the most haunted ships in the world....the Queen
Mary. Nine Grand Prize winners had the frightful opportunity to board the
spooky ship and get an exclusive tour of the mysterious vessel -
complete with a freaky feast, ghost stories in the boiler room and a game of
"dare and scare."

From its charming quarters to the depths of its darkest corridors, the
Queen Mary has been a constant source for stories about ghostlike
sightings and other unexplained activity on the historic ship. The Grand
Prize winners boarded the ship for two nights and received an exclusive
haunted tour aboard the vessel. Six-year-old Steven Farber from
Pennsylvania and six-year-old Sean Kennah from Montana were the youngest of
the Grand Prize winners. The seven remaining winners included Rachel St.
Pierre (age 8) from Michigan, Johanna Callahan (age 8) from
Pennsylvania, Cole Beatty (age 9) from Texas, Teran "T.J." Keck (age 9) from
California, Cody Dorn (age 10) from South Carolina, Megan Raposa (age 11)
from South Dakota and Charles Schuchmann (age 11) from Florida. On
Saturday, October 30, viewers are invited to tune in to Kids WB (8:00 a.m.
ET - 12:00 p.m. ET / 7:00 a.m. PT - 11:00 a.m. PT) and join the
sleepover to find out if ghosts really do exist aboard the Queen Mary!
