A Stockholm walking tour unlike any other
Glenn the ghost is annoyed. A poorly fastened mooring on a Gothenburg dock was all it took to end his life on earth. As if that wasn’t bad enough, his soul now seems to be trapped in stupid Stockholm of all places. Glenn was a very proud west coast native, so why is he stuck haunting the Swedish capitol? Does it have anything to do with a mysterious box left there by his mother?
Go on a Stockholm walking tour unlike any other and join Glenn on a mission in a city he despises. Learn more about Stockholm history in an entertaining and gamified way!
Stupid Stockholm and all its failures
You bump into Glenn in an Old town alley, and he convinces you to come with him. He needs your human hands to pick up the box, and some help figuring out how to set his soul free. Glenn shares anecdotes about historic Stockholm failures as you walk. The murder of King Gustav III? Very clumsily planned. The Vasa ship? Any deckhand from Gothenburg would have done a better construction job, considering that it sank on its maiden voyage. And don’t even get him started on the events of the Stockholm bloodbath…
Listen to Glenn’s story as you walk. In each location you help Glenn unpack items and clues to his past from the box. The further you walk, the closer you get to finding the truth of why Glenn is haunting a city he dislikes so much.
