Full description
Discover the haunted underworld of Glasgow with an interactive city exploration app. You will be guided step by step to the cursed buildings where eternal punishments are carried out while learning all of their ghastly stories. Brace yourself and explore haunted Glasgow with the help of your smartphone. Starting from Glasgow Central Station, follow the clues as they lead you from one place to another, giving you exact directions so you won’t need a map, GPS, or a guide. Hear the gruesome history of Glasgow City Chambers, the Merchant City Clock Tower, and the Britannia Panopticon Music Hall among many others. When you solve the clue and guess the answer, the secret story of that place will be unlocked. Along the way, you’ll find horror stories that will give you the chills. If you are a large group, one person can purchase access for the entire group by selecting the number of people in the group. All group members will be able to play the city game on their smartphone. Alternatively, each person can purchase their own ticket. You can play as a group and solve the clues together as you walk, or you can split into smaller groups/teams and compete against the others. Each person can also play on their own, separate from the group and meet the group at the end.

    We took the walking tour guide on the morning. That was really good and then we took the haunted city exploration. We observed that they complement each other, which is awesome. We definitely recommend it. As well we think that is an activity that it needs to be done with enthusiasm. We think that could be even better if they add audios to the game. Someone reading it with background noises. That will be awesome besides it will consider impared people or people with learning disabilities to play. As well I think that will be great if they do a kids version of the game.

    This was a new way (for me) to explore a city. It's fun and and the story has an eerie beauty to it. We took our time & took pictures in between clues, but then decided to "lose the trail" of another group on the quest, too! Clues challenging but never unsolvable. :)

    We enjoyed doing this and it took us to some interesting parts of Glasgow that we might otherwise have missed.
