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 await 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.
YES, we still have tours in the winter! Even though we live in the desert, it gets very cold at night in winter. If anything is going to send a shiver up your spine, it should be a ghost and not the weather. Please bundle up in coats, hats, jackets, scarves, etc. Don't get chilled to the bone!
Albucreepy Downtown Ghost Walks occur in all types of weather. Tours will only be cancelled if the sidewalks are dangerous and not walkable (snow-packed, icy, etc) or in the case of severe lightning or flooding. Please dress appropriately.
NOTE: The Albucreepy Downtown Ghost Walk is rated PG-13 due to its creepy subject matter. Bring young children at your own discretion. The Albucreepy Downtown Ghost Walk features the exterior of the locations; there will not be access to the inside of any private businesses (excluding "The Factory," where you will tour the haunted basement!). Tour is taken at your own risk.
