With Halloween just around the corner, it’s the spookiest time of the year! Our team here at Apartment SEO is excited to celebrate this holiday and we want to share some of that spooky energy with our friends and followers. With our office being located in beautiful Long Beach, just miles from the harbor, we want to invite two lucky folks to check out Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor, on us!
The Queen Mary
Parked at the harbor in Long Beach, the Queen Mary is a floating hotel and attraction with an interesting story and haunting history – literally. This once luxurious liner set sail in 1936 and carried royalty and celebrities alike who all enjoyed her great amenities. However, when World War II began, the Queen Mary was transformed into a troopship, painted in camouflage, and stripped of her luxurious amenities. She was nicknamed the “Grey Ghost” and transported as many as 16,000 troops and their families until the end of the war. After that, she resumed regular passenger service until 1967 when she made her final trip to Long Beach.
During the Queen Mary’s 1001 trans-Atlantic crossings there were a recorded 49 deaths; however, there were apparently a few more that were not recorded due to the lack of organization during the war. Today, as many as 150 spirits have been spotted, making it one of the most haunted structures in America.
Each year during the Halloween season, Queen Mary hosts Dark Harbor to provide guests with chills and thrills. This event has six terrifying mazes, hundreds of monsters, and live entertainment, making it a must-see for all horror and haunt enthusiasts.
