When the legendary Queen Mary arrived in Long Beach in 1967, she breathed new life into a city. Today, in her exciting next chapter, she has the opportunity to do even more—as the magnificent centerpiece presiding over a dynamic $250 million waterfront destination known as Queen Mary Island.
An all-inclusive entertainment destination set on 65 acres of waterfront land surrounding the iconic ship, Queen Mary Island will pay homage to the Golden Age of the luxury liner while bringing to life a curated collection of music, entertainment, dining, retail and adventure experiences that take full advantage of the scenic coastal setting along Long Beach’s Queensway Bay.
Merging Great Britain heritage with the energetic pulse of the Southern California cityscape, this new high-energy regional attraction is destined to become the new year-round social epicenter of Long Beach. Art-inspired outdoor settings with shaded green spaces and lush gardens will mingle with pedestrian and bike-friendly passageways lined with interactive kiosks providing fascinating glimpses into the Queen Mary’s illustrious history. Similar to the boroughs of the world’s most celebrated cities, the destination’s architecture will be one of a kind. The vernacular is anticipated to embrace a distinctive shipyard-industrial aesthetic and a fresh color palette, complementary to the past.
Guests strolling down the Island’s 2,400-foot-long waterfront boardwalk will enjoy the sights and sounds of eclectic retail shops, original cafés and bars, a 200-room boutique hotel and a state-of-the-art outdoor amphitheater destined to host live performances from today’s biggest names in entertainment. For stimulating thrills that go beyond the everyday, Queen Mary Island will boast the first Urban Adventure offering in North America, an innovative multi-activity concept that will feature as many as 20 sports and adventure activities—all under one roof in a 150,000-square-foot venue.
Promising to capture the hearts and minds of a whole new generation, urban meets legend at Queen Mary Island.
