Join us each Saturday evening for a special version of Albucreepy designed for adults only. This unedited tour is for guests 21+ and includes a voucher redeemable for up to $5* at Back Alley Draft House (located next door to our starting location). The tour will have a strong focus on New Town Albuquerque's Red-Light District and prostitution history.
Beneath the towering office buildings and twinkling lights of modern downtown Albuquerque lurk the memories of public hangings, duels, horrific murders and locations haunted by those who have passed over to the other side. Tales of vengeful lovers, murdered soldiers and mysterious specters wait around every turn. What better way to experience Albuquerque's history than to possibly come face to face with a spirit from the past?
The 100-minute Albucreepy Downtown Ghost Walk will guide you past 1.3 miles of Albuquerque’s dark side, including historic (and reportedly haunted) sites such as the KiMo Theater, old Bernalillo County Courthouse, the Wool Warehouse, the former red light district known as “Hell’s Half Acre,” and more. Albucreepy tour guides are experienced paranormal investigators.
As you walk, your guide will reveal vivid accounts of Albuquerque’s most popular ghosts, explain methods used to detect paranormal activity, and discuss previous investigations at downtown locations. This is an interactive exploration of Albuquerque’s haunted past and not a theatrical performance. While some tour participants have experienced unusual activity, we can’t guarantee ghostly phenomena.
NOTE: The Albucreepy Downtown Ghost Walk - Red-Light Edition is rated R due to its creepy and adult subject matter. The Albucreepy Downtown Ghost Walk features the exterior of the locations; there will not be access to the inside of any private businesses. Tour is taken at your own risk.
*can be used toward food or drink. No change given. Expires 12/31/17.
