When we talk about haunted places, we make a general perception regarding the creepiness of that particular place. For that time being, we do not know whether it is really the spooky thing or just our imagination but we get afraid. Well, there are number of such spots where one can find a colony of spirits full of evil, holy and reacting souls. For an example, people get scared to peep in a cemetery during night hours. That’s because it is their perception that cemeteries are always full of souls but, in actual, it has been found that there are more ghosts in a church comparable to a real scary cemetery. Seems unbelievable? We will explain the paranormal connection behind it later. For a change now, today I am going to tell you about a giant ship that has been the center of ghastly activities since ages. People know it as the most haunted ship in California that has made a successful appearance in “top most haunted places in California”.
Facts from the History of RMS Queen Mary Ship
Placed one among the top 10 haunted places in America by the Time Magazine, this gigantic ocean liner sailed primarily on the North Atlantic Ocean for more than 30 years. She lived her life in three partitions that finally ended up in 1967 when it became officially retired. Later, this huge spaced ship was converted into a hotel, restaurant along with a tourist spot to visit in California State. Now it stands permanently in Long beach and facilitates event organizing, a museum other than attracting thousands of city explorers.

You would be amazed to know that 21 murders have taken place on this ship and hundreds of workers had noticed paranormal whilst the ship was active.
