Get set to experience the Halloween season in an eerily-unique way aboard the haunted and historical Queen Mary because starting tomorrow, Saturday, October 5, haunt revelers and thrill seekers alike can experience a double dose of entertainment that’s to die for! That’s right, you can enjoy a new 60-minute haunting edition of Aiden Sinclair’s Illusions of the Passed, A Theatrical Séance followed by a VIP paranormal investigation that will take you to the depths of one of the most historically haunted areas of the ship, the Rope Room Locker.
What’s good Gab had the opportunity to be one of the first passengers to experience this perfect paranormal pairing featuring Illusions of the Passed, A Theatrical Séance followed by the paranormal investigation. We ventured aboard the Queen Mary on October 2nd, coincidentally marking the very day when the Queen Mary and HMS Curacao collided at sea north of Ireland in 1942. Without giving away too much about the experience, here are a few highlights of the night.
THE REVENANT ROOM
Once you board the Queen Mary you venture down the halls of the haunted famed ship, and enter the depths of the stern of the ship on B-Deck to the Revenant Room where a very dark corridor conceals what’s ahead and surrounds you by a wall of old photographs of the dearly departed passengers that took their last breathe aboard the ship. You are then taken back in time and greeted by the lovely Rebecca Knight, Aiden Sinclair’s assistant who lets you into the dark and cozy Revenant Room filled with a variety of oddities and artifacts with a haunted history.
The Revenant Room is the perfect other-worldly space to enjoy libations, share stories, and meander around to check out Aiden Sinclair’s artwork and artifacts, show merchandise, and other cool curiosities. This mini-museum of the macabre features supernatural objects like the Guest Register and Front Desk Bell from the historic Stanley Hotel.
RAISE YOUR SPIRITS
The Revenant Room has a cozy corner bar offering a variety of specialty cocktails made in front of you by the mixologist and presented with Insta-worthy appeal so feel free to take a sip and snap away! What’s good Gab recommends The Gent featuring cazadores reposado tequila, liquid alchemist ginger, activated charcoal, agave nectar—and garnished with an edible flower and gold flakes.
THE ALL-NEW SHOW
The new 60-minute haunting edition of Aiden Sinclair’s Illusions of the Passed, A Theatrical Séance is a mesmerizing mix of illusion, haunted history, spirited surprise and good-humor. Aiden Sinclair is warm, welcoming, and charismatic—and he will draw you in from the start with both magic and mystery as well as wisdom and wit. Whether you are a skeptic or a believer, one thing lies for sure you’ll leave not knowing what was real or an illusion. And Aiden invites guests to participate, so you might be one of the lucky ones who will witness first-hand a sound, a mind read, or even something move right before your eyes!
The paranormal investigation is definitely an added treat to the already extraordinarily immersive show that’s truly one-of-a-kind and eerily-enthralling! During this investigation, you will have the opportunity to communicate with and capture sounds from the other side. It is a very unique experience that will have you haunted and hypnotized—and you might even have a chance to hold a data logger, recorder, or even the “spirit box” where you will perform the famed “Estes Method” which was conceived in Estes Park, Colorado at the famous Stanley Hotel which is an extrasensory communication where you put on a blindfold, headphones and hold the communicator to listen for a feed of sounds and words while others ask questions. We had the luck to communicate with a spirit on the ship named “Phillip” who was playful and had the audience in awe when it responded back with answers to our questions.
Overall, it was a perfect paranormal pairing of the Illusions of the Passed, A Theatrical Séance show followed by the paranormal investigation. You will be shocked and surprised, and feel a connection to the resident spirits—and a newfound appreciation for life itself and the legendary Queen Mary!
