If you love being scared at Halloween, lucky for us there are a ton of local attractions offering frightful nights all month long. I love meeting up with friends to find out who is the bravest. We usually laugh about it later but at that moment in time, forget about pride, we all want to find safe shelter. Please don’t put me in the front nor make me go last. Can someone just hold my hand while I walk around in the dark with my eyes closed? Everyone knows that The Queen Mary is really haunted. The eerie feeling that you get when you’re aboard the ship is no joke, and every year, they pull out all the stops to highlight the haunted historic tales. This year, the haunted ship will host MORE monsters, MORE nights, and MORE mazes than ever before.
New FEAST Maze
New resident spirits have resurfaced to terrorize everyone aboard the ship. CHEF and his kitchen staff have resumed their deadly duties collecting new victims for Chef’s latest recipes. You can’t run, because you must crawl your way out of Chef’s scorching oven taking you into previously unrevealed areas of the Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor – Yikes! FEAST will be the 4th maze onboard the ship. FEAST and Chef will make their horrific debut as Dark Harbor returns to the Queen Mary on September 28.
“FEAST tells the tale of Chef, a legendary spirit of the historic R.M.S. Queen Mary. As the tale goes, During WWII when the Queen Mary was in service as a troop transport ship, an enlisted military man serving in the ship’s kitchen quickly moved up the ranks to become a highly-decorated Chef. Unbeknownst to the soldiers traveling aboard, Chef had a dark side. Quietly he would sedate soldiers in the middle of the night to prepare them as ingredients for his latest dishes. Eventually caught, the Chef was thrown into one of his own ovens and cooked alive. Loyal to their leader Chef’s dutiful kitchen staff sacrificed their lives to become his evil henchmen, burning themselves in the same oven. The spirits of Chef and his evil crew went into hiding aboard the ship for many years. Now, these long-time stowaways have resurfaced to resume their deadly duties of collecting and preparing victims for Chef’s latest concoctions.”
