Magic, Mystery, and the Paranormal Aboard the Queen Mary
January 4, 2019
In September of 2018, Master Illusionist Aiden Sinclair opened a new theatre aboard the RMS Queen Mary in one of the most historically haunted areas of the ship. Since the opening of his theatrical séance, Illusions of the Passed, reports of paranormal activity in that area have increased dramatically. The Queen Mary is pleased to announce, Illusions of the Passed, will continue to lead guests through a journey back in time to meet the ghosts and legends of the ship throughout 2019.
Building on the success of Illusions of the Passed, the Queen Mary has invited the finest paranormal investigators in the world to come aboard, hosting a recurring intimate investigation of the Revenant Room Theatre and the historic Rope Locker in A Voyage to the Other Side. Each month, paranormal thrill seekers will be treated to one of Aiden Sinclair’s 45-minute theatrical séance performances, a one-of-a-kind lecture, paranormal investigation, and meet and greet with a special guest. Haunt lovers will have the opportunity to investigate these locations first hand by participating in the first recurring paranormal research aboard the RMS Queen Mary.
On Saturday, January 19, the Queen Mary will welcome Grant Wilson aboard as the first Paranormal Investigator teaming up with Aiden Sinclair for A Voyage to the Other Side. Grant S. Wilson has been actively involved in all types of paranormal investigation and has paved the way for much of the modern field through his work with the group The Atlantic Paranormal Society (T.A.P.S) which he co-founded many years ago.
Saturday, February 23 will welcome Tennessee Wraith Chasers duo, Scott Porter & Doogie McDougal, for the second Voyage to the Other Side.
