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 firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
All proceeds from the Haunted Hunt benefit Historic Oakland Foundation’s mission to preserve, restore, enhance, and share Oakland Cemetery.
