The Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor will once again rise from the deep torrid history of the infamously haunted ship September 29 – October 31, 2016. Dark Harbor will unveil new grotesque creatures and features at Midsummer Scream in Long Beach on July 30.
Ghoulish spirits, old and new, will descend upon The Queen Mary in Long Beach for the most anticipated twenty-two terrifying nights of the year. Dark Harbor’s Sinister Seven Spirits: Ringmaster, Captain, Samuel the Savage, Graceful Gale, Half-Hatch Henry, Scary Mary and the newest malevolent resident will haunt the grounds of Dark Harbor nightly.
Ringmaster promises to unleash her band of misfit monsters under the gruesome big top of Circus – a maze that continues to disorient with horrifying illusions, death-defying acts and spirited thrills. Dark Harbor’s youngest soul, Scary Mary, who has haunted the ship since her mysterious drowning in the first class pool in 1952, will leave fear-seekers gasping for air in the enhanced Lullaby maze. Deadrise, Soulmate and B340 mazes have been reengineered to deliver a darker descent into the depths of Queen Mary’s sinister past.
This year’s Paintball Shooting Gallery sends guests on an other-worldly adventure and Sideshow grants “backstage” passage into the macabre underworld of the traveling circus. Haunt-fanatics can even double down on this year’s new double-sided small tops to host a private soiree featuring close-up freak shows with instant complimentary access toSideShow directly from a private Creepy Cabana.
Take in a mesmerizing fire show on the main stage, have a spin on the Sinister Swings, and toss back all-you-can-eat tacos in the exclusive R.I.P. Lounge. But get the party started early and arrive during Happy Haunting Hour to down a happy hour potion in the all-new Voodoo Brew.
Dark Harbor brings the true haunted tales of The Queen Mary to life, offering the most authentically frightening experience available. The annual event begins September 29 and continues to scare those who dare through October 31. General admission ticket prices start at just $20 online, with Fast Fright, VIP Passes, and lodging packages available.
