Austin Ghosts

1. Austin Ghosts

Join US Ghost Adventures for a journey through haunted locations like The Omni Hotel, the William Sidney Porter House, and the Museum of the Weird, among countless oddball restaurants and vintage shops.  Austin has a unique way of encouraging eccentric behavior with its infamous element of the weird. The history of the capital of Texas offers shocking stories of forbidden lovers, heartbreaking suicides, brutal murders, and freak accidents.  Some of the ghosts you may encounter on this historic ghost tour are playful and harmless, but others are quite wicked and have committed some horrific crimes in their lifetimes. Stroll through hotspots in the "City of Bats" on this ghost tour and explore the dark side of the city's charming downtown streets. You’ll not only visit the most haunted places in town, but also discover the history that lives on in each building.  Keep your cameras ready because some pretty spooky footage has been captured on some of these expeditions. If you’re lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of the suicide brides roaming around the Driskill, or witness the legendary "Man with the Cigar" who thoughtfully paces around the Paramount Theatre.  Loads of tall tales will skim the surface of Austin’s history, but you will also hear true stories that have been thoroughly fact-checked and researched.

2. Austin: Detective Mystery Game with Mobile App and Audio

Explore Austin in an exciting way with a mature themed app-based detective game. Become the game's main character as you solve a mystery and travel to locations throughout the city. Play a recent graduate of the Detective Academy, called upon to solve a crime in Austin. Your job is to get to the ten locations marked on the map, piece together the evidence, identify the killer, and issue an arrest warrant. As you travel to various locations within the app's game map, become part of a professionally acted and produced audio story full of intrigue. Head out as a solo detective, with a partner, or in a group. Choose a walking route in Downtown Austin, suited for groups of up to four people, or opt for a driving route covering north or south Austin. You can complete the game at any time and at your own pace.
