COLUMN: 5 Things We’re Excited About For Dark Harbor’s LGBTQ+ Night at Queen Mary

With Halloween only a week away, folks are scrambling to squeeze in as much spooky fun as possible. The Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, and they aren’t holding back. Now through November 2, this scream-inducing attraction is hosting a variety of events and themed entertainment, including our personal favorite — LGBTQ+ Night on Sunday, October 27! 

Here’s why we’re excited for this: 

1. LGBTQ+ Night — Who doesn’t love a good LGBTQ+ night at a public attraction? It’s everything you love about the Dark Harbor, PLUS all your gay friends are there. Sometimes it’s just nice to scream with your fellow queens. 

“We really strive to create an inclusive environment at Dark Harbor in every sense of the word,” Steve Shedon, Executive Co-Producer of Dark Harbor, said. “Many of our cast and crew are members of the LGBTQ community and we are proud to be a place where all of our team members, as well as all of our guests, feel safe and welcomed.”

2. The Boulet Brothers – The Boulet Brothers, Dracmorda and Swanthula, are hosting LGBTQ+ Night! They are nightlife producers/hosts who developed the Dragula TV series, based off their long-running club event of the same name. Known for glamour, filth and horror, the Boulet Brothers will perform twice on the Dark Harbor Main stage and also judge the much-anticipated, cash-prize costume contest. So dress to impress! 

3. The new mazes – It’s Dark Harbor’s 10th anniversary and they’re pulling out all the stops. One highly anticipated new maze, Rogue, takes guests through the frightening voyage of when the Queen Mary was hit by a 95-foot rogue wave of blackness that sent waves of panic through the marine community and re-defined science as we know it. How on brand. 

4. Exploring the haunted Queen Mary – Look, we all know the Queen Mary is haunted, and we want first-hand encounters with ghosts. This year, guests can access the never-before-seen depths of the Queen Mary. In one of the newly re-imagined mazes onboard the historic ocean liner, attendees can now walk through the infamous Door 13. Dubbed one of the most haunted areas on the ship, legend has it that an 18-year old crewman was crushed to death by Door 13 in 1967. Does anyone else have goosebumps? 

5. Secret bars – Secret Bars! Need we say more? Guests can venture 6-fathoms below sea level submerged in the notorious Boiler Room to indulge in the newest secret bar. We hear there’s several other secret bars around the park… have you found any yet?
