Queen Mary's Dark Harbor Returns Sept. 28 - Nov. 1!

The Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor Unveils the Spirit of Chef

Sept. 28 – Nov. 1

Embark on a Terrifying Journey Through All-New Maze FEAST

If you’re the faint of heart, this is not for you. However if you're up to the challenge, ready to be scared out of your gore, this is a horrifically delightful sight to see. Get ready to pee your pants, yes I said that, you’ll be terrified beyond your imagination. Take all those scary movies you've seen, magnify it by 100 and, even then it doesn't do it justice because you'll be thinking, “What the F am I doing here?” Because, now you can only imagine what the next chain of sequence can be, terror, sheer heart-stopping terror that will paralyze you with fear. When it’s all over, and, you realized you've survived the craziest, freakiest thing you’ve ever come across, grab another drink and go for another round! Here’s the secret to Queen Mary Dark Harbor fright festival, set aside the absolutely ghoulish things you’ll come across that your mind is processing at a fast pass and the entire time you‘re reminding yourself, THIS IS NOT REAL. The Queen Mary is notoriously haunted, she's nearly a century old cruise liner, permanently docked in the Long Beach harbor, and The Queen Mary hosts one of the most chilling, effective and believable Halloween events you’ll ever find because it is haunted! I firmly believe that during Dark Harbor spirits are awaked and this is exactly why this is extremely scary, there's a little bit of the paranormal sprinkled in, in what quiet can be the most devilish fright of your life. Happy Haunting, “May the odds be in your favor.”
