Shaqtoberfest is back for its second year, bringing an immersive Halloween festival to the Queen Mary, complete with a plethora of spine-tingling attractions and experiences. This haunted extravaganza boasts a range of thrilling features, including eerie haunted trails, live entertainment at the LVCRFT Block Party Stage, and captivating pop-up performances throughout the festival grounds. As you explore, you'll stumble upon a whimsical fishing village, home to a notorious shipwreck filled with larger-than-life animations and interactive character interactions, providing plenty of photo ops for those feeling brave enough to investigate the mysterious storm that caused the ship to run aground.
But the thrills don't stop there – Shaqtoberfest offers themed bars and lounges, each with its own unique atmosphere. Tiki Terror, nestled beside the historic Queen Mary, serves up island cocktails like the Zombie and Mai Tai. Home Court bar, located at the heart of the action in the Block Party, is your go-to spot for all your favorite drinks (for adults only). Looney's Libations, the carnival-themed bar, offers themed cocktails, mocktails, and snacks for those needing a break from the terror. Diesel's Boathouse, situated near the dock, invites you to leave your boat behind and enjoy craft beers and a game of cornhole.
For those seeking an elevated experience, Shaqtoberfest offers VIP options like Captain Shaq's Secret Hideaway, where you can toast to the pirate's life with a complimentary shot of rum punch and gain priority access to the Pirates Cove haunted trail. The Engine Room Experience takes you on a self-guided tour of the ship's Engine Room, revealing the Queen Mary's history of action, adventure, romance, and paranormal activity. VIP Slam Dunk Lounge, exclusively available to Slam Dunk VIP ticket holders, provides stunning views of Shaqtoberfest, exclusive photo opportunities, relaxed seating, and a full-service bar with an array of beverage options.
Thrill-seekers can further enhance their experience with unlimited access to carnival rides, including Bumper Cars, Zero Gravity, Giant Gondola Wheel, Carousel, and the Wacky Shack Funhouse. And don't forget to commemorate your night with exclusive Shaqtoberfest merchandise.
Foodies won't be disappointed either, with a variety of delicious offerings from California classics like Pink's and Hot Dog on a Stick to seasonal treats like warm apple cider and s'mores, alongside all your favorite carnival goodies, including hot dogs, popcorn, soft pretzels, cotton candy, french fries, funnel cakes, batter-dipped Oreos, and more.
Shaqtoberfest promises a Halloween extravaganza packed with entertainment, thrills, and delectable delights for an unforgettable night of spooky fun.
