The Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor: A Discussion with Executive Producer Charity Hill
October 12, 2016•29 min
Haunts come in all shapes and sizes, from intimate home experiences to grand historical prisons. Among the myriad of haunts out there, one has stuck in my mind as particularly unique- The Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor. The Queen Mary herself is a splendid experience. She thrusts solemnly out from the water, a hulking monument to a bustling era; the past clings to the corridors like dew on grass, and weighs down one’s imagination. Playing off the ship’s inherent ambiance, the Dark Harbor Event pits you against the ‘Evil 8’ in mazes both on and off of the ship. Entering the Queen Mary at night, among the lights and frights, for a maze is just something that all these years later, has not yet dropped out of my mind. This past month I returned to meet with Charity Hill regarding this year’s event. Charity Hill is the executive producer of Dark Harbor 2016 and the Assistant Director of Entertainment at the Queen Mary.
