Long Beach, Calif. – The Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor opened on Thursday, October 1 and unveiled a spectacle of new, terrifying attractions. Thousands of brave thrill seekers joined the cast of spirits and ghouls for a completely sold out opening weekend. The blood curdling terror will continue with themed entertainment and thrilling special events on select nights through November 1.

This year’s Dark Harbor unveiled multiple new attractions including the horrific new maze, Lullaby, that tells the tale of the ship’s youngest soul, Scary Mary, the all-new Curse of Anubis Paintball Adventure, a Side Show of unimaginable Freaks and Oddities and the Big Top Bar featuring bubbling Absinthe potions for 21 and over guests.

Iconic Dark Harbor mazes Deadrise, B340, The Voodoo Village and Circus returned this year, each with new enhancements and horrors, haunted by the spirits of The Ringmaster, The Captain, Half Hatch Henry, Scary Mary and more than 200 grotesque monsters.

Dark Harbor offers harrowing entertainment and special ghoulish events throughout the season. A show on the main stage welcomes the Queen Mary spirits showing off their terrifying talents with magic acts, circus performances, monster dance parties, fire breathing, live bands, DJs and the Dark Harbor Sliders performing the Slider Olympics down slider alley.

Oct. 31 and Nov. 1 are the only evenings that Dark Harbor guests are invited to wear costumes. On Halloween night, Oct. 31, the iconic “Jewels” will return to Dark Harbor for a special costume contest and drag show. Nov. 1 welcomes the annual Dia De Los Muertos celebration with DJ Mikey O spinning all night long.

Dark Harbor will be open Oct. 15-18, 22-25, and Oct. 28-Nov. 1 from 7 p.m.-12 a.m. Thurs. and Sun. nights and 7 p.m.-1 a.m. Fri.-Sat. evenings. Tickets start at just $20 online. For more information, or to purchase tickets visit
