Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor: Hidden Little Secret

I’ve attended the Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor every year since it’s conception and I’m happy to see first-hand how much it has grown.  I didn’t post a review from last year (I have my reason!) but my pictures are to die for.  I’ll post those in my Instagram Instastories.

Dark Harbor has always been terrifyingly fun but the creativity of the mazes and concepts of fright mature each year.  For example, Lullaby, this maze was one of the first-runners and although it’s the same, it has a lot more attention to detail this year.  Each year it gets better (like wine!)

Feast was a maze that first exhibited last year.  This year it was just as great or better.  I loved when we first started walking through it gives the illusion you’re walking through a food warehouse with boxes everywhere.  That was a nice added touch.  I swear, when we were walking through the part of the maze where the bodies were hanging it actually smelled like dead bodies.  Not that I’ve ever smelled a dead body before, it’s what I assume it should smell like.  Or, maybe someone passed gas…who knows.  I wasn’t the only one who smelled it though, so maybe it was supposed to be there?

Don’t think because you came once, that’s it.  Each year the maze is different, each year it’s getting better.  I’m going to let you in on a little secret…shhh!  Some of the mazes have secret bars in them.  No, not like prison bars, shots…not gun shots, alcohol shots!  Forget it!  Go see for yourself.

Speaking of bar, I couldn’t resist the 9 degree chill of The Ice Cave. Not to fret, the different flavor shots will warm you up. The tasting is a mere $9 for two shots but the experience is well worth it. Let’s just be honest, the more alcohol you consume the more the ghouls become your friend.  Maybe that’s just my experience. Ha!



Circus is back! I must admit I didn’t care for this one as much as I did the first year it exhibited, but again, the attention to detail in the décor was spectacular.

Anywho (it’s my thing, let it go), B340 is back…there’s something about this maze that really puts my scare into perspective. Maybe because it’s from a true story? One of the biggest massacres aboard a cruise line.

There’s so much to see and do this year at Dark Harbor this year.  The sliders are back! Deadrise is back! I must say it’s nice to see some of my ghoul friends I met over the years return for another frightfully fun year.  I’m also glad they didn’t make it rain! Thank goodness.  There’s even a Haunted Hookah area if you’re into this.  I didn’t see a lot of people engaging in this activity so, it’s not for everyone…not even majority.  Hmm… I wonder why they added this?


Of course there’s the VIP experience with the RIP Lounge & Captains Quarters.  Don’t think this is your ticket away from the ghouls…they haunt there too!

I wouldn’t be telling the truth if I said it wasn’t work paying the ticket.  It’s definitely worth it.  There’s a Panic 4D Experience if you’re really want to immerse yourself in fear. There are Six (6) scream-filled mazes, with three (3) secret bars, and only one (1) exit.

Do you Dare?
