Haunted Hunt Scavenger Hunt

October 1, 2021 @ 8:00 am - October 31, 2021 @ 7:30 pm

Gather a small group of friends or family for a day of spooky sleuthing on this self-guided scavenger hunt throughout historic Oakland Cemetery! From October 1-31, purchase your printable Haunted Hunt packet online (one per team), download, print, and follow all-new cryptic clues to solve riddles. You can also do the hunt online. See your email receipt for a link.

No reservations are required to participate.

Choose from three different packets, organized by degree of cemetery riddle difficulty:
Easy: Kid-friendly riddles and perfect for families (expected hunt time:1 hour)
Medium: Challenging, but not impossible to solve, riddles (Expected hunt time: 1.5-2 hours)
Deadly: Try it if you dare (Expected hunt time: 2-3 hours)

Each Haunted Hunt packet ($25 plus tax) includes one self-guided tour map (a $5 value) that can be used on return visits.

Each team that purchases a packet will be entered into a drawing for prizes. Prizes include tour tickets, memberships, and more. There will be weekly prize drawings, and winners will be notified by email.

Planning Your Visit: All scavenger hunting must end by sunset as our gates close and lock at that time. Oakland will close at 3 p.m. on the following dates for special events: October 14-17, 21-25, 28-31.

Group option: For groups of larger than ten people, we’re offering a special scavenger hunt package. This package includes gift cards for winning groups and specific cemetery challenges. Price based on the number of participants. Email Marcy Breffle at for more information.

All proceeds from the Haunted Hunt benefit Historic Oakland Foundation’s mission to preserve, restore, enhance, and share Oakland Cemetery.

The Haunted Hunt has ended. Our next scavenger hunt, Holiday Hunt, starts November 20.
