Queen Mary's Dark Harbor 2015 Announcement
The Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor rises once again from the deep history of the infamously haunted ship October 1 - November 1, 2015. Dark Harbor is thrilled to unveil the horrific new maze, Lullaby, that tells the tale of the ship’s youngest soul, Scary Mary. The chilling new Side Show of Freaks and Oddities, new attractions and new monsters will be orchestrated by The Ringmaster and all of the ghoulish spirits of the Queen for its most frightful season of thrills yet.
Lullaby will take fear-seekers on a terrifying voyage with Dark Harbor’s youngest soul, Scary Mary, who has haunted the Queen Mary ever since her horrific drowning in the poolroom in 1952. Mary was a bad seed from birth. Before her death, mysterious tragedies and unexplained occurrences seemed to follow in Mary’s wake. She isn’t looking for just one playmate; she wants a whole playground of souls to play with in the afterlife. She can be spotted throughout Dark Harbor, but the poolroom of the ship is her playroom. One must proceed through Lullaby with caution, as it may be the last journey through Dark Harbor as a mortal soul.
Dark Harbor will introduce the new Side Show of Freaks and Oddities that will take guests through an immersive experience into the grotesque world of freaks like never before imagined. Enjoy a specialty cocktail at the Side Show Bar for an up-close and personal look behind the Side Show curtain and catch an exclusively freaky live Side Show performance.
Dark Harbor guests will get lost in the depths of the Queen Mary’s haunted history through the Deadrise, Soulmate and B340 mazes as well as visit the feared Voodoo Priestess in her Voodoo Village with dark magic gypsies in a setting wrought with shrunken heads and voodoo dolls.
The Ringmaster will orchestrate the freaks and monsters of the Circus maze and its terrifying mad house that will disorient illusions through horrific magic, paranormal wonders and spirited thrills. The Ringmaster, The Captain and their band of spirits including Samuel the Savage, Graceful Gale, Half-Hatch Henry and of course Scary Mary will haunt the grounds of Dark Harbor nightly.
Dark Harbor brings the true haunted tales of the Queen Mary to life, offering the most authentically frightening experience available. The annual event begins October 1 and continues to scare those who dare through November 1. Ticket prices start at just $20 online, with Fast Fright, VIP Passes, and lodging packages available.

MAZE OVERVIEW CIRCUS (Spruce Goose Dome) Since the true spirits of the Queen Mary have risen, The Captain has conjured up a haunted circus to celebrate their victory. And with this circus comes The Queen Mary’s very own big top tent inside the deadly dome! Here you will face your greatest fears as you find your way through disorienting illusions, fatally horrific magic and circus wonders never before imagined!
DEADRISE (Midway) Deadrise is a WWII escort ship that helped guide The Grey Ghost through enemy-infested waters. After a fatal crash during one of their dangerous voyages, Deadrise sank to the bottom and has been resting in her watery grave in the depths of the sea ever since. The wreckage of Deadrise has once again been called into service by the star of Dark Harbor, The Captain, to escort him and his armada of ghosts and monsters into a battle against the living to reclaim Dark Harbor.
ALL NEW! LULLABY MAZE (Ship) Ring around the rosey, a pocket full of nightmares. The new Lullaby maze takes the visitor on a spine tingling trip through the story of little Scary Mary. Gone, but certainly not forgotten, Mary’s looking for playmates to join her on the other side of hell. Will you succumb to the youngster’s pranks and tricks, or will you escape with your soul intact?
SOULMATE (Ship) In Soulmate, the story of Gale unravels as her true spirit is revealed. Gale is not as graceful as she appears, she is haunting The Queen Mary in order to lure suitors into her possession. Once she captures the hearts of these men, she will have her adoring minions cut them up and reassemble them, trying to create for Gale the "perfect man."
B340 (Ship) B340 is a schizophrenic journey of Samuel the Savage’s decent into insanity. We go through his mind literally and figuratively, ultimately concluding where his life was ended through a mirage of B340s. He’s on the loose, he’s dangerous, and he is out of his mind! Heck, through this maze, you may just lose your mind as well.
VOODOO VILLAGE (Village) The traveling gypsies of the Ringmaster’s Circus have taken over The Village of the Damned. Along with the powers of their leader - The Voodoo Priestess - they are casting spells and creating dangerous ceremonies that will take you through a Voodoo nightmare. Enter the Gypsies’ sanctuary if you dare...but be careful, if you are lucky enough to survive the southern crypt of death - you will be face to face with the deadly swamp!
ALL NEW! SIDE SHOW OF FREAKS AND ODDITIES (Midway) Don’t be afraid to peek behind the curtain. Our all new Side Show of Freaks and Oddities gives you a glimpse into the secretive world of our side show circus performers. Enjoy a cocktail and take in a performance by one of our oddities as they put their highly unusual talents on display for your enjoyment.
