The Queen Mary continues to live up to its reputation as one of the most haunted places in the world, as the crew gears up for another season of fear at Dark Harbor. This year, the annual Halloween fright-fest will bring guests through three new attractions full of treacherous love, insanity and unseen terror.
Two new mazes that will immerse guests in the haunted history of the ship were announced Thursday, as well as an all-new paranormal journey that will take select guests through haunted, previously unseen areas of the ship.
The first new maze, Soulmate, will tell the story of Graceful Gale, who was once a beautiful, beloved passenger aboard the ship in the 1930s before mysteriously disappearing on her final voyage in 1939. The maze will tell Gale’s story as she attempts to lure men into her possession and create her perfect mate.
Then, B340 will take guests on a schizophrenic journey into the mind of Samuel the Savage, who was locked away in the now-infamous room after a violent outburst. The maze will immerse guests in Samuel’s twisted story of isolation and madness, and is sure to have everyone trying to find a way to escape.
The brand new Exclusive Encounters—which promises to be so terrifying, it requires participants to sign a waiver—will take a limited number of attendees on a never-before-seen paranormal journey through areas of the ship never open to Dark Harbor guests before.
Along with the new additions, old Dark Harbor favorites like the Monster Midway, Freakshow, Mechanical Monster, and The Ringmaster will reappear to haunt thrill seekers and horror fans alike.
Dark Harbor opens Oct. 2 and runs through Nov. 2. The event lasts from 7PM to midnight on select nights. General admission ticket prices start at $20, with Fast Fright, VIP prices and lodging packages also available. To purchase tickets and for more information, click here.
