Southern California’s most terrifyingly authentic haunt, the Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor has been teasing us with details all summer long and this Thursday, September 27, it will once again rise from the depths for 23 nights of terror. This year Dark Harbor features six reimagined mazes, an entirely new park footprint, along with new maze designs, interactive alternate paths, thrilling live entertainment and four new secret bars to discover. The infamous spirits of The Ringmaster, Scary Mary, The Iron Master, Chef, The Captain, Samuel the Savage, Half-Half Henry, Voodoo Priestess, Graceful Gale, and hundreds of bloodcurdling spirits that are ready to scare those who dare for the haunt’s most frighteningly immersive season yet.

With the added talent of haunt veteran Jon Cooke (Knott’s Scary Farm, MurderCo) the Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor will feature newly-intensified mazes including:

  • FEAST: Face the terrifying wrath of Chef as his vengeful staff are joined by the lost souls of poisoned passengers, all hell-bent on serving the living to the dead.
