Queen Mary

The Queen Mary was built in 1929 by John Brown shipyard in Clyde, Scotland. It was originally made to just be a typical ocean liner, but its history has transformed it into something far beyond the ordinary. This 1,000-foot long vessel was built to be bigger and faster than the Titanic, and carried some of the most well known people of the time, such as the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Clark Gable, and Winston Churchill. What makes this ocean-liner particularly special and worth hosting an event is the infamous hauntings. The Queen Mary is notorious for being one of the most haunted places in the world. It supposedly carries over 150 past wartime souls who never can rest in peace due to their treacherous experiences. Their stories range from Door 13 spontaneously crushing two sailors to death to women suddenly drowning in the First and Second Class swimming pools.
