As always our investigation was amazing. We did the Adelaide Arcade this time round, our guides knowledge of the location and the amount of time that would go into researching and remembering all the details is impressive. The passion of all the staff and Adelaide’s Haunted Horizons if by far what make these tours fun!

Thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Adelaide Arcade on 2 May 2019, it was very interesting learning the history of the arcade and about it’s extraordinary residents, would loved to have encountered one of them but unfortunately they didn’t want to join us. Our guide was very knowledgeable and made it a great night.

Please note:  the Arcade will be lit until we go underneath into the old tearoom where it is dark.  It is also in the hub of the City so will also be noisy at times.  Both are out of our hands, as it is in a major shopping precinct.

Please note, although the stories that are told are real,  Haunted Horizon’s™ naturally can NOT promise you a ghost on the night, we can however ensure you have an enjoyable and fun night.  For this reason these tours and investigations should be viewed as entertainment only.
