The Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor Unveils Two New Mazes Aboard the Notoriously Haunted Ship

July 20, 2014


Dark Harbor returns October 2 with multiple new attractions to tempt thrill-seekers and explore the depths of fear


LONG BEACH, Calif., (July 16, 2014) –The Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor will once again rise from the depths of a rich, haunted history to frighten those who dare October 2 through November 2. This year’s Dark Harbor is thrilled to unveil a spectacle of new attractions that include two brand new mazes, the new The Voodoo Village, and an Exclusive Encounter on board the infamous ship. Beloved veteran characters including The Ringmaster and all grotesque spirits of the Queen will make a chilling return for 20 nights of delightful terror amidst freaks, food, and live entertainment.

 The two new death-defying mazes will take guests through never before visited areas of the ship and will replace the former Hellfire and Containment mazes. Details of each new terrifying maze will be unveiled in the months leading up to the October 2 Dark Harbor opening. Half Hatch Harry will once again emerge from the Deadrise maze, the infamous Captain will return to haunt the Dark Harbor grounds, and The Ringmaster will host the most frightening show on earth at The Circus, located in the outdoor dome just off the ship.

 In addition to new mazes, Dark Harbor will feature the new Voodoo Village with dark magic gypsies that will taunt guests passing by in a setting wrought with shrunken heads, voodoo dolls and the feared Voodoo Queen. Also breaking ground at Dark Harbor in 2014 will be the Exclusive Encounter aboard the Queen Mary ship that will require a signed waiver to participate. This new, exclusive experiment in horror puts guests in an intimate and frightening setting that will leave a lasting impression jarring extreme fear.

 The all-new Monster Midway will be where guests, zombies, food, and entertainment intertwine. The Midway will act as the centerpiece of Dark Harbor and welcomes back the Freakshow, exposing even more freaks than ever before including the harrowing Beast. Adventurous guests can chance the Mechanical Monster and check out the newest Dark Harbor ride that is yet to be revealed.

 Dark Harbor will also feature stage shows that spotlight timeless characters as well as the fresh presence of the feared Voodoo Queen and her lackeys. LED hula hoopers, live musical entertainment, costume contests, holiday celebrations, and drag shows will enhance the spine-tingling experience.

Dark Harbor brings the real haunted history of The Queen Mary to life, offering an unforgettable, authentically frightening experience. The annual event kicks off October 2 and runs for 20 haunted evenings through November 2 from 7 p.m. to midnight.

*Spoilers* First Time Director Cameron Brings Life to Truth or Dare

November 16, 2013

In “Truth or Dare” horror actress and now first-time director Jessica Cameron had little to work with in her directorial debut.  However, she was able to craft a fun and quickly paced film that leaves the viewer glued to the screen.  Not to say that it’s a bad movie, it worked in its simplicity, but there wasn’t much character development in the film and it seemed to have two acts, rather than the traditional three.  If you’re looking for violence than we suggest you see this film.

Golden State Haunts and Events 2013 Haunted Attraction Awards

November 5, 2013


This year was quite a year for Halloween haunts and attractions in Southern California.  Elvira made her return to Knott’s Scary Farm, Rob Zombie had his own haunted amusement park at the Fearplex and we saw some of the best new haunts we’ve seen in a long time.  Now it’s time to award our annual haunted attraction awards to those we felt exemplified what the Halloween Haunt season is all about.  Our decisions were hard and we weren’t able to visit every haunt this season so we had to go on what we visited.  There were many haunts that could have been in the same place as the award winners as it seemed every haunt gave it it’s all this season.  Read on for the winners… Read the rest of this entry »


Alone: An Existential Haunting Quite Possibly the Scariest Haunt Attraction

October 30, 2013

Before we even went through Alone we were feeling anxiety,  Perhaps it was because we had done an investigation of the building a few nights before and had some results where the haunt was located, in the basement of the Odd Fellows Temple, built in the 1920′s.  We had heard that this old building, located off of Washington Blvd. in Downtown Los Angeles had a long history.  Going through the basement alone seemed like a daunting task, especially since “real” spirits can get to know you after just one investigation.  The experiences we had just a few nights before led us to believe that the location is truly haunted so we didn’t know what to expect.

Dare to Walk Through Fears Gate

October 22, 2013


Fears Gate is a high contender for most improved haunt of the year.  Everything has improved from last year including the actors, sets and scares.  Plus, everything is new including a Mutants vs. Humans paintball maze.  Needless to say, we were impressed with the changes we saw.  Once again, the location (an abandoned hardware store) added to the spooky environment.  The three mazes this year were: Deadtime Stories, Krazed Klowns and Mutant Militia.
