    Here are some photos of last year's 5 amazing mazes at Queen Mary Dark Harbor. There's something truly special about a haunted event being held at one of the nation's real life most haunted places.

    Long Beach has a number of tourist attractions, but one which is often overlooked, is the Queen Mary. But last Halloween, they produced a haunt event that blews away anything they've done in the past and ranks right up there with the very best that Universal and Knott's have to offer. We had heard about past Halloweens at the Queen Mary and we honestly weren't very excited about our trip . . . but this IS the Queen Mary which is inherently creepy and many say truly haunted (for real). So that alone was worth the trip to Long Beach. It exceeded all of our expectations and provided for an exciting and affordable evening of fun.




    Once inside the turnstiles, you are greeted by a menacing phantom figure standing above a portal to doom. He invites all to come in.




    Entering the foggy shipping crate, fashioned into a tunnel, visitors will soon realize that this will be an evening to remember. The entrance to the Dark Harbor is a sort of maze of its own. Flickering bulbs light the blinding fog just long enough to see the dangers mere feet ahead. It was amazing.












    The path let out into an open grassy area with wooden structures offering a sort of free form maze. Out in the open but not in the clear, visitors are left to find their way.



    WRONG WAY




    Go that-a-way!




    The make up and costuming are amazing here



    We finally made it to the main thoroughfare of Dark Harbor. The path was lined with food vendors and a few solicitors here and there.

    Dark harbor offered five separate mazes. "Submerged", "Hellfire", and "Containment" on the ship - "The Cage", in the former Spruce Goose Dome - and "Village of the Damned" in the old village shopping center (next to the dome).

    We decided to hit the ship first and began our tour with the 'Containment' maze.


    Containment:


    Quote:
    A trail of torture.
 Containment has quarantined sailors and passengers who are possessed after having been infected with every disease imaginable. You'll need a strong dose of antibiotics if you're fortunate enough to make it out alive.



    The maze begins with a shipmate guiding visitors deeper into the story and warning of the dangers ahead. What followed was a very impressive medical themed nightmare full of ghosts, mutants and fiendish doctors.



    Come on up to the lab and see what's on the slab



    The mutants are coming



    The music was ominous a great backdrop to the creepy mood of the maze and the excellent scare-actors.



    Help me!



    The maniacal doctor attacks
    .




    HellFire:

    Quote:
    Your fears ablaze. 
Hellfire is a maze on the ship that's so hot, the steel melts. Be sure to wear sun screen because you'll head into the Queen Mary's boiler room as it explodes in a ball of fire. Descend deeper into the ship and you'll approach the Gates of Hell in areas of the ship normally off limits!



    This fire themed maze combs the depths of the Queen Mary's corridors and leads to a stunning Boiler Room finale.

    The actors and set pieces are all up to the task of setting the right mood and generating fear and uneasiness. The shortest of the maze offerings, "Hellfire" more than makes up for its lack of length by having an amazing ending.




    Fighting fire with fire




    Fishing for trouble



    What was so brilliant about the mazes on the Queen Mary was their use of the existing passageways on the ship. Winding in a seemingly endless labyrinth of riveted corridors, the maze establishes a sense of reality - which absolutely heightens the freight factor.

    We won't give the ending away, but lets just say that you should make a trip to the Queen Mary to see it for yourself.


    Submerged:

    Quote:

    Feel your spirit sink.
Submerged is the maze that will have you drowning in fear. Water pours in around you as you try to escape a sinking ship and an angry crew. If you have a fear of drowning this is one of the scariest mazes. If you make it you will reach the ship's swimming pool, which is truly haunted by spirits, and normally closed to the public!


    Submerged is a water themed maze on the ship that again features beautiful set pieces.



    The maze features sets with real water effects


    A ghostly tricycle enters the light.


    The scariest thing in the world . . . children.



    Let this sleeping ghost lie.




    One of the highlights of the maze leads visitors through one of the most haunted areas of the ship, the pool.
    "Submerged" was an inventive maze with just the right mix of mood and scares. The duration of the maze was just long enough and the talent was exceptional.


    Village of the Damned:

    Quote:

    Mutation, mutilation, and mayhem.
 Village of the Damned is a seaport haunted by the Queen Mary's resident ghosts. Upon entering the maze, you're cautioned to turn back…….. BUT You're dammed if you do and dammed if you don't because entering means you are trespassing into their world of ghosts. Fifty-five paces and you're in the scariest part of the maze.




    Brilliant lighting design is a highlight of this maze.


    Village of the Damned is a very, very impressive maze. The use of the old village shopping center is a brilliant move and here again, the actors were perfect. Seriously!



    The mutants of the town are after you.



    Very Clockwork Orange.



    A spooky coffin maze.



    Down into the sewers.



    Village is also one of the longest mazes I have ever been in. from beginning to end the maze took us at least 11 minutes to walk all the way through, perhaps more. Creepy, moody and totally satisfying. Worth the wait time!


    The Cage:

    Quote:
    Escape . . . if you can.
The Cage, is located in the DOME, and is filled with monsters and other gruesome creatures locked in cages. As you walk around YOU WILL GET LOST in the endless corridors of chain link and mirrors, so choose your path wisely. Finding your way out is like winning the lottery, enter the wrong path and you'll scream your lungs out.






    Entering the dome one realizes the scope of this maze may be something you aren't prepared for. The entrance into the maze replicates stepping into your worst nightmare. A path leads to the base of a large screen on which nightmarish images spin and twirl.

    Once inside, black curtains hang in misleading arrangements with disorienting lighting. There is no single way to go through this maze, as there is no real path!





    A light rotates over the entire maze.


    The maze finally evolves into a path of chain link and monsters that is exposed to the expanse of the dome. Loud distorted music blares from every angle as visitors navigate through this inventive living nightmare. This was the first maze we have been through in years that felt unhinged - no order or reason to the path - but in a very GOOD way. We loved every minute.





    A metal sculpture is lit red.


    Is this the right path?


    The Cage was a full on assault on the senses that I couldn't get enough of. So much so that upon exiting, we made a U-Turn and got right back in line. This may be our favorite maze of the year.


    Night Mariner's Bar:



    Nice


    A surprising amount of theme is here on display.



    A full bar is available.


    A nice lounge too.




    Dark Harbor is a must do for Haunt fans. Last year's incarnation of the Queen Mary Haunt is a jaw dropping spectacle of top notch design and presentation. Not a single maze was a letdown, not one. Even the maze like entrance to the event was impressive.






    You won't want to miss this opportunity to visit the Queen Mary with your haunt friends at MiceChat.com.

    I really wanted to go to this last year, but could not make. Hopefully, this year will work!

    Will there be the possibility of adding on a room for the night?

    I was so hoping this would be the same weekend as Knotts Haunt so we could go
    Finding yourself lost in thought may be unfamiliar territory... Be careful!

    Absolutely looking forward to going. Just bought our tickets. We were hoping to add on to stay the night but it looks like they're only accepting reservations for min. 3 nights that weekend on their site.

    Are you by any chance able to get a deal for us to add a room as well?

    Thanks. (see you there.)

    LAST CALL

    We are just about sold out on the Queen Mary Dark Harbor event scheduled for Saturday October 8th. This is a creepy event but not a gory one. If you can handle Knott's Scary Farm, you can handle this one easily.

    Dinner, tickets and front of line for just $55. Would love to have you join us: MiceChat Events Store (Powered by CubeCart)

    Be sure to let your friends and family know about this event before it is too late!
