Ahoy! It’s time to set sail on the spoooooky and haunted (yeah – it’s said to be really haunted) Queen Mary in Long Beach, California for their 10th anniversary of Dark Harbor! I was lucky enough to go on opening night, and it was the perfect way to kick off my Halloween season.
From the opening moment when The Captain bellows to his fellow monsters to open the gate – you’re immersed into a world where you can walk by a snarling Scary Mary (my fav), before getting spooked by a 10-foot-tall creepy clown. The atmosphere is top notch here (something that Universal Horror Nights is lacking), and Dark Harbor not only brings it in terms of that atmosphere – but also with the mazes.
With a total of 6 mazes in all, Dark Harbor has unleashed Rogue this year as it’s newest addition and it lived up to the hype. My personal favorites Lullaby and Circus are back, with a few new twists that attendees from previous years will appreciate. The scare actors really go for it in all of the mazes, which makes the interactions with them all the more fun (and terrifying).
Once again, Dark Harbor satisfied all of my haunt needs this year and did itself proud for its 10 year anniversary! If you find yourself in the Long Beach area or are looking for something to satisfy your own haunt needs this Halloween season, then go HERE for more info on the schedule and ticketing for The Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor experience! Scare ya, later!
