Full description
Follow the clues in the app and discover Dracula’s Castle, the House of Terror, the Haunted House, and many other haunted landmarks around Budapest. Read fascinating stories about the different destinations you are led to and uncover events that took place in them, as well as the people who used to live or work there. The quest can be played at any hour but it is recommended that you try it at night, for the full haunted experience. It will take between 1 and 2 hours to complete but there is no time limit so you can finish it at your own pace.  Each clue will lead you from one place to another, giving you exact directions so you will not need a map or GPS. When you get the correct answer, the secret story of that place is unlocked. You will not need a guide, just download the app, go to the starting point, and you are ready to go on a haunted adventure. For larger groups, 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 voucher. 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.

My 13 years old daughter and me had wonderful time during this activity where we had the chance to visit very interesting points of the city such as the city park, the house of horror, the castle etc and to notice many details. We finally spent 2,5 hours full of entertainment and although we walked a lot in a very cold evening we wanted to finish all the questions. The last question was difficult to find so he had to ask for help and the person who was responsible for this was very helpful. Interesting concept!!!!

Nice experience, would it do again

The idea behind it is good. We had a lot of fun and saw quarters we wouldn't have visited without this game. The tasks and visited areas were already creepy for us during the day and we are glad that we didn't do the tour in the evening/night. The given time of 2h was rather short, we had almost 3.5h. If you can't get any further, extra hints will help and if necessary you can write to the contact person.

Start very strong, it creates an atmosphere and starts in a castle that, seen at night, leaves you with your mouth open and your hairs on end. Get ready for a good walk and pay attention to detail!
