some directions were not clear, had to use the map. especially one towards emd about going opposite direction on the street (had to go same direction) and the last one directions to reach the park were unclear

The quest had misleading directions (going to the first cemetery, finding the head on the building, the use of the phrase " end of the street" inconsistently). It could've been shorter and more enjoyable if the directions between stops were clearer. The puzzles and the places were great and fun !
