A Haunting Evening Onboard the RMS Queen Mary

The Queen Mary has long been thought to be haunted, and it’s sailing history is rich in unexplained events and activities.  The ship is now permanently docked in Long Beach, California, as is operated as a hotel and museum. 

Employees and guests have frequently reported paranormal activity aboard the ship, and psychics have concurred that something is going on.  Halloween visitors will have an opportunity to experience some of these “happenings” with “Shipwreck 2007” — the Queen Mary’s 13th annual Terrorfest.

The past popularity of this event has resulted in limited admission on each night, so if you want to catch a glimpse of a shipboard ghost, you’ll need buy tickets right away.  Tickets are available online.  Don’t wait — this event will sell out!

Remaining dates are:  October 26, 27, 28, 30, and 31, from 7 pm – midnight.  Admission is $35/person, and includes unlimited entry to all mazes and attractions, live music in Purgatory Park, and two dance parties.  Parking is $15/car.

A variety of hotel/event packages are available starting at $153.

For safety and security reasons, a dress code will be strictly enforced.  No baggy or sagging pants, Wallet chains that extend past the pockets, Headbands, Bandanas, Spiked wristbands, Spiked belts and collars, All starter gear, Old English style writing on hats shirts or pants and Oversized or extra long T-Shirts and Necklaces.

The Queen Mary is located at 1126 Queen’s Highway in Long Beach (map it).
