The Dark Harbor, featured in the Press-Telegram and on Things to Do Inland Empire, celebrates the accumulated ghouls and eerie tales aboard The Queen Mary's haunted history. First setting sail in 1936, The Queen Mary served as a World War II troop ship, luxury liner transporting celebrity guests, and white-whale chaser before retiring in 1967. The ship's annual Dark Harbor experience commences with a fog-shrouded entrance into the spectral bowels of the ship, where zombies and monsters lurk in search of unwitting guests and their long-lost car keys. Themed mazes entangle visitors in spooky sites such as the former ship's infirmary, and local bands rock out amid decidedly unhaunted finger food and cocktails.
Guests can also peruse The Queen Mary's original staterooms and sun decks, including authentic art-deco built-ins and wood paneling. The Queen Mary historic exhibit further illuminates the legends, terrors, and sordid games of bridge throughout the ship's storied history.
_The Queen Mary_
Since its maiden voyage in 1936, The Queen Mary has cultivated a colorful history by transporting iconic figures from Winston Churchill to Fred Astaire across the ocean blue, as well as serving as troop transport in a world war. Today, passengers board the famous ocean liner to tour historical and haunted areas amidships or stay overnight in an onboard hotel. Visitors rub elbows at seasonal soirees and dive into historical exhibits, fueling up at restaurants, bars, and cafés for a literal taste of The Queen Mary's brand of luxury.
