The Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor has a new spirit aboard the ship and they call him Iron Master. His story will be brought to life this year in the newest maze on the ship…Intrepid! Dark Harbor is back once again and will begin on Thursday September 29th & continue through Halloween night on October 31st ending at 1am! This is always one of my favorite events of the year and I cannot wait to attend. If you are there on October 14th, keep an eye out for me and say hello. I love to party it up with these crazy monsters on the ship & my favorite is always Scary Mary! See our photos below! 🙂
The new maze, Intrepid transports guests aboard a steaming locomotive back to the birthplace of the Golden Era of Travel –Scotland’s storied shipyard of Clydebank. Blazing down the Iron Master’s death-defying tracks, guests will bear witness on his cursed journey to save The R.M.S. Queen Mary from her predecessor’s Titanic peril. This all sounds super crazy to me and I cannot wait to check out the newest adventures aboard my most favorite haunted ship in Long Beach!
According to the tale that has been told for years, Ivan was the ship builder and original iron forger of the Queen Mary Ship. In the early 1930s, Ivan’s shipyard was commissioned by Cunard to build the Scottish vessel. Eager to rise to the challenge, he got to business and devoted his life to finding an amazing crew and creating the ship that soon became the R.M.S. Queen Mary. The ship set sail in 1936 with Captain at the helm and unknowingly, Ivan in the hull.
One fateful night, a mysterious steam engine rolled into his shipyard rail station and beckoned Ivan. Before he realized it, he had boarded the deadly train and was barreling toward darkness. By the end of the dark journey, he realized he had been transformed into a terrifying creature – part metal, part monster. Over the century, his corpse decaying, Ivan was forced to replace pieces of his rotted flesh with cast iron – the same from which he forged his beloved ship. A slave to his craft in life, so too, would he become in death. Cursed for eternity as protector of the Queen Mary, Ivan is now…Iron Master.
The Queen Mary, also known as “The Grey Ghost” has been eerily hovering in the harbor and this year marks her 80th year afloat! Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor will resume for 22 nights from September 29-October 31 & will offer haunting takes from several familiar characters including the eight evil spirits that include: Iron Master, Captain, Samuel the Savage, Graceful Gale, Half-Hatch Henry, Scary Mary, Voodoo Priestess, and Ringmaster.
Mazes from past years of the Dark Harbor’s Queen Mary will return, such as Circus, Lullaby, Deadrise, Soulmate, and B340. These mazes all offer glimpses into the ship’s haunted past. Some other attractions that will happen at Dark Harbor include: Hex Paintball Gallery, Panic 4-D, Sideshow, Neverland Ranch’s Sinister Swings, Voodoo House Bar & Tasting Room, R.I.P. Lounge, Big Top Bar, demonic DJ’s and other main stage mayhem and bands performing outside for lots of fun and a scary good time!
