Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor Announces Second Maze for Event’s 2024 Return

Dark Harbor is set to return this Halloween season at The Queen Mary in Long Beach, CA, after a three-year hiatus. Last month, we got our first maze announcement with the unveiling of Lullaby, and now, The Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor has announced another maze with Big Top Terror.

Big Top Terror sounds like the next iteration of Circus, which was the Ringmaster’s domain in years past. The all-new maze is described as follows:

This carnival is no ordinary circus—it’s a trap, a deadly labyrinth designed to ensnare the souls of the innocent. The Ringmaster, with their hypnotic charisma and enchanting performances, lures the unsuspecting into this dark maze, where doom awaits. Proudly displayed within the Circus is the Ringmaster’s sinister collection of cursed objects, amassed over the ages.

Dark Harbor is a massive Halloween festival that takes place on The Queen Mary and surrounding harbor. This year’s event will feature haunted mazes, live entertainment, themed bars and lounges, experiences on-board the ship, along with festive eats and treats.

The event returns to Long Beach on Friday, September 20, and will run select nights through Saturday, November 2. Tickets are expected to go on sale soon. To sign up for updates and get exclusive access to presale tickets and deals, visit
