Nerd News Social stopped by Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor, which is running until November 2nd, 2019. We wanted to show you guys a couple of the mazes, so if you haven’t been yet, you’ll get it in gear and hurry up!
This maze is a solid, and earthy maze, taking you through a train, Scotland, and then finishing with the ranting of the twisted monster himself.
Prior years Rogue used to be a maze that took place within the bow of the ship, but this version of the maze is even cooler. With the use of projection screens, the newer maze allows people to get more involved and feel like they are actually in a ship that is capsizing, even though they are on land. One of the coolest things about this though is the Bubble room. I felt I was at a rave.
There is nothing cooler then being able to walk throughout the ship, and this maze has one of my favorite views as you walk across a gangway looking down into the bellows of the ship!
Turning the story of Stateroom B340 from the tale of the man who somehow killed himself in the most brutal way, to the detectives trying to understand how it happened, was an interesting twist. Who cares, as the Line Up Bar is an awesome location, with an amazing photo opportunity, and the ability to watch patrons walk through and be scared by monsters.
Feast oh boy… Where to start. Feast focuses on the fictional story of a cannibal chef aboard the Queen Mary. When food ran out about the ship, the Chef did his best to meet the needs of his high class patrons. However, when people began to worry about where the passengers were disappearing to, they quickly realized that the Chef had been serving them to the other passengers. Now back from the dead the Chef takes his revenge on it’s patrons by throwing them in his oven, like the passengers did to him as punishment for his crimes.
This maze has some interesting kitchen sets that are really cool, some looking like a human sized oven. The coolest part is that this year, this maze brings people down into the boiler room of the ship, and even empties into their maze themed bar.
The ball pit is a lot of fun, and the best part of this maze, as described earlier is the hidden bar, which has a control unit for a scare machine that will put the haunting in guests hands. I will say though, that bearded lady is a looker!
