Budapest: Haunted Budapest Exploration Game & Tour

2. Budapest: Haunted Budapest Exploration Game & Tour

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.

Highly recommend this experience. Miki was very knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. The wines were incredible, with their background stories really interesting. A plate of cold meats, cheese and bread was an ideal addition to compliment the wines.
