There are tales of public hangings, duels, horrific murders locations haunted by those who have gone to the other side that lurk beneath the towering office buildings and twinkling lights of modern downtown Albuquerque. Now you can experience Albuquerque’s history and possibly come face to face with a spirit from the past. Albucreepy Downtown Ghost Walk will be on hand to scare up some fun with locals and visiting guests beginning Thursday, September 4, 2014 at 8:00 PM. An ABQ Trolley Co. production, Albucreepy is a 90-minute, walking tour of haunted downtown locations led by experienced ghost hunters. Born from the success of ABQ Trolley Co.’s annual sold out Trolley of Terror tours, Albucreepy will feature Albuquerque’s most spine-tingling and hair-raising ghost stories.
“As part of the nationwide success of the ghost tourism industry, coupled with the popularity of ghost hunting TV shows, Albucreepy will provide an exciting opportunity for ghost enthusiasts and skeptics alike to visit downtown Albuquerque. Albucreepy features historic (and reportedly haunted) sites, including the KiMo Theater, Kiva Auditorium, old Bernalillo County Courthouse, Wool Warehouse, and the former red light district known as “Hell’s Half Acre.” Whether ghosts are sighted or not, each tour will include 90-minutes of downtown Albuquerque’s most popular ghost stories. Albucreepy Downtown Ghost Walks are led by experienced paranormal investigators. It is also a great after-dinner option for convention goers and locals, and something that ABQ Trolley Co. hopes to be a boon for downtown Albuquerque.” Co-owners, Mike Silva and Jesse Herron added, “hope that Albucreepy will give people a reason to come downtown. And for locals it will be a chance to reacquaint themselves with the city; afterwards we hope they find a new favorite restaurant downtown or take in a movie at the KiMo or Century Theatre, maybe even an art gallery.”
The Albucreepy Downtown Ghost Walk will begin at Hotel Andaluz, which will provide free valet parking and a free tapas at on-site bar, Ibiza, or restaurant, Mas, for Albucreepy patrons. Hotel Andaluz General Manager, John O’Hara, made this comment. “Hotel Andaluz is pleased to partner with ABQ Trolley Co. for the Albucreepy Downtown Ghost Walk. ABQ Trolley Co. has established themselves as leaders in Albuquerque tourism and we are excited that this new tour will begin and end at Hotel Andaluz. We look forward to this new and exciting activity taking place in downtown Albuquerque.”
