Full description
You are invited to discover the haunted places of Manchester with an interactive city exploration app. You will be guided step-by-step to the cursed buildings where they carry out their eternal punishments while you learn all of their stories. Brace yourself and come explore Haunted Manchester, all with the help of your smartphone. Each clue will lead you from one place to another, giving you exact directions, so you won’t need a map, a GPS or a guide. When you solve it and guess the answer, the secret story of that place is unlocked. Along the way, you’ll find horror stories that will give you the chills. Dare you go on this tour? Complete the tour at your own pace as there's no time limit, though around two hours is normally enough. Pause the game at any time, and restart whenever you want from the last place you visited. 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.

      Awesome concept, not very historical story but leads you straight to the historical sights and plaques to read about them instead. Overall lots of fun and plenty of pleasantly curious looks as you read the story out loud in the middle of town walking along. The town hall clues obscured due to building works till 2024 but trial and error can get you through!

      Lots of fun

      Unfortunately there was building work at some of the sites or roads that could not be navigated. Disappointing. The app could have easily been adjusted which is just lazy.
