GCLA Pre-Party and Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor
The west coast Groove Cruise sailing is generally in October, so some sort of Halloween element is usually incorporated. This year, Groove Cruise LA’s pre-party is complemented by discounted access to The Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor haunted attraction.
This is a really unique addition to the 2017 GCLA event. The Queen Mary is both a ship and a hotel. Around this time of year, it is also a haunted attraction.
If you haven’t booked your GCLA 2017 cabin, now is the time because prices go up as the event approaches and the ship is already over 60% sold out.
You have two options for taking advantage of the GCLA 2017 pre-party. You can either book a room aboard the Queen Mary and receive complimentary access to the pre-party, or you can purchase a ticket to the pre-party separately if you’re not staying on the Queen Mary.
Regardless of the option you choose, if you have a GCLA 2017 pre-party ticket, you can get a 20% discount on access to The Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor.
The Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor Attraction Details
The Queen Mary is a docked ship turned hotel that has a unique history (http://www.queenmary.com/history/our-story/). It is also the location of the GCLA 2017 pre-party and recommended hotel option for the night before the west coast Groove Cruise sailing.
GCLA 2017 pre-party attendees receive a 20% discount on The Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor tickets.
Dark Harbor has been named one of the Top 10 Most Haunted Places on Earth by Time Magazine.
Dark Harbor features 7 haunted mazes:
