Three Spooky Electric Scooter Rides For Halloween

With such a rich and wild history, it’s no surprise that the Bay Area has its share of ghost stories. And since Halloween is right around the corner, we thought we’d hop on our 2.0s and scare up a list of East Bay spots with spooky histories. We hope that they get you into the holiday spirit. Visit if you dare!

Mountain View Cemetery

Established in 1863, the Mountain View Cemetery is a large graveyard filled with massive, ornate tombs that tell a fascinating story of Oakland’s history. Some of the cemetery’s residents also lend to its story, including famous names like: Short, aka the Black Dahlia; former Oakland Mayor Samuel Merritt; the Ghirardelli family; and famed architect Julia Morgan. The graveyard also boasts amazing views, and the 2.0 is a great wander the grounds and make the most of your trip there. To see one of the best sunsets in the East Bay, we recommend watching from the monumental hilltop tombs known as “Millionaire’s Row.”Just be sure you’re are not caught there after dark…

USS Hornet

The USS Hornet was built in 1943 and spent his time serving in the Pacific Theater during World War II. During his time in service, he quickly became one of the most decorated ships in the Navy. After 27 years, he was finally decommissioned in 1970 and declared a National Historic Landmark. In 1998 the USS Hornet Museum was opened, giving people a chance to tour the ship, eat in the mess hall and even arrange to spend the night in the bunks. Many visitors have reported seeing doors open and close by themselves, tools disappearing and reappearing, and the spirits of sailors wandering the corridors. So keep an eye out, and if things get scary, never fear! Your GenZe 2.0 has a 30-mile range, so you can get far away in no time flat!

The Claremont Resort & Spa

If you have ever seen “The Shining”, the first sight of the Claremont Resort & Spa will make you feel some serious heebie-jeebies. Built in 1915, this massive resort is an iconic part of Oakland’s past and present, so it’s no surprise that there are tales of ghosts who haunt the famous hotel. Visitors to the Claremont mostly report strange activity on the fourth floor, and many say that it’s the spirit of a mischief-making little girl who likes to play pranks. Her identity has been lost to history, but if you see flickering lights and hear strange noises it might just be her playing tricks on you. The Claremont Resort & Spa is not only a great place to visit and explore, the ride up is extremely fun. With a nice hill and winding roads, all you need to do is pop your 2.0 into “Sport” mode and zip through the Claremont Canyon.

These three spots are deeply infused with East Bay history and each have fascinating legends and lore. So even if you don’t believe in ghosts, they are great places to explore on your 2.0. And who knows—maybe you’ll have an experience with the other-worldly…

Enjoy the ride!
