Last night was the opening of one of our favorite events of the Halloween season, Queen Mary's Dark Harbor.
We were on-hand to take in all of the mazes and more at the event. We also were able to get video of most of the mazes and of course, lots of pictures.

When we got there it was still a bit light out
Maybe a nap before we head in?
Soon the sun came down and the Captain welcomed us into the event
As we like to do at most of these events, a live-stream of the opening moments.
An overview of the event from the VIP lounge
The event always features some amazing lighting design
We of course took in all of the mazes and video'd most of them (the one for Feast didn't come out as well as we would have liked). But we hope you enjoy these!!
The new maze for 2019, Rogue which replaces the fan-favorite Deadrise. A similar type theme, some really amazing special effects. Wish they would have kept the Deadrise ending though. That fog tunnel was always amazing.
The Iron Master is back. We did notice a few new things this year in the maze, fun as always.
Lullaby had a new path this year and a really creepy scene in the pool. One of the highlights of the event as always.
It took a few years for B340 to hit it's stride, but this is definitely now one of our favorites at Dark Harbor
And last, but certainly never least, Circus is back with some new treats for you all.
We of course had to take in the Slider show
We decided to do a bit of a different perspective on the show this year, we actually really dig out this came out. Hope you will too.
Some more of the amazing props around the event
Best name for a bar ever
They also have some amazing character posters. We tried to get the best angle on these as we could.
We're making plans to return to Dark Harbor 2019 to have even more fun with some of our favorite monsters.
We'll have some more pics and video in the next few days from Scott. So stay tuned!!

Dark Harbor is back for 2018 and we have to say, the event is better than ever.
Each and every maze has undergone some amazing changes, some very drastic and two mazes that were constantly struggling to find their way, found their way in a BIG way this year.
Let's head in and get the ship scared out of us!!

Welcome to Dark Harbor!!
The Captain is waiting for you!!
As always, the Ringmaster was on hand for the festivities!! She's the best!!
Speaking of the Ringmaster ... we got the chance to go through Lullaby with her. Yes, Lullaby, which definitely was an interesting experience as you'll see below.
Even the stages are bigger this year!!
Deadrise is back, our favorite dead sailors are up to no good again.
Our favorite end-of-maze moments are always found at Deadrise.
Although, having the entry and exit in the same place means people are pretty much expecting it at this point. Still, we managed to get some great reaction shots below.
Feast was back this year, in a new location and was a lot of fun yet again!! Crawling through the grinder was interesting as always.
The food options were MUCH improved this year!!
Watch out as you head into B340
Speaking of B340, wow, talk about a huge plus over the previous year. Simply fantastic and is not to be missed.
Circus was back, we tried to find the hidden bar like last year but it was not to be.
Our early season vote for best year-to-year improvement of an existing maze HAS to go to Intrepid. This one has really struggled to find it's way.
We are VERY happy to say Intrepid has found it's way. And it may have been our absolute favorite maze of the entire event. It's THAT good. Kudos to Jon Cooke and his amazing team for breathing new life into this maze.
Thanks to Queen Mary for another fantastic year of Dark Harbor!! We hope to be able to return again before the season is over.
