The Queen Mary
The Queen Mary is said to be one of the world’s most haunted ships and for some very good reasons. The ship’s maiden voyage happened on May 27, 1936, from Southampton, England. The ship was state of the art at the time and set a new benchmark in transatlantic travel. The Queen Mary was in commission until 1967 and became an even more popular location while docked in Southern California where it currently resides.
So why is it so haunted?
During WWII the luxury ship was transformed into a passenger ship for soldiers. The ship was dubbed the “Grey Ghost” because it was so fast and the stark color. It carried as many as 16,000 troops during the war and it also served as an on-board hospital. A lot of lives were lost and many of them were lost while on the ship. Many who have seen ghosts while visiting on the ship say they’ve seen the ghosts of soldiers and sailors.
The ship was eventually retrofitted back to its original state and then docked in Southern California. It was then transformed into an event center, hotel, and had frequent tours. That’s when the paranormal activity started to increase 10 fold. During Halloween the ship also has a pretty creepy haunted house. Check out the video post we found of the creepy walk through and let us know if you would be brave enough to walk through its corridors at night.
