There's a reason Austin is so haunted: It's a city that has seen it all and, naturally, it’s shrouded in all sorts of horrors, so it’s well worth exploring! Enter: our walking Austin tour!

So, if you're looking for something different from your average day out walking in Austin or other Haunted Austin games, this is it. 

Our unconventional walking in Austin tour will teach you spooky stories and fascinating bits of haunted history about each place visited as you walk around the city, following clues and solving intricate puzzles in your surroundings. In doing so, you'll discover cursed landmarks and forgotten tales that even some locals don’t know about—and get to experience them first-hand!

You won't need any prior knowledge or special skills to play our game—anyone can join in on the fun (it's as simple as downloading our award-winning app!) and explore cherry-picked spooky parts of town at your own pace. 

Do you prefer adventures without tag-alongs? You’ll get complete freedom and privacy, as there aren’t any guides involved in our games.

Ready for a break? Take one! You can have a coffee or an ice cream break whenever you want with no pressure to keep going if you need a moment to relax. Ready to continue playing after your break? Just pick up where you left off and get right back into it!

Walking in Austin has never been so fun!

Whilst walking in Austin, you’ll be swept up in a gripping story, brought to life by our top-notch writers:

You’ve come to accept them by now, the voices in your head. Even before you could understand them, they never stopped whispering to you, begging for attention, pleading. 
Your name is Ted Quigley and you can hear the voices of the dead. 
It’s never really bothered you. 
But when the day came that your little sister, a freshman in the same university as you, whispered to you after she drowned, you were broken. You now share a part of your life with your sister, wandering Austin in hopes that you'll meet her again...
