The Great St. Augustine Skeleton Scavenger Hunt!

Are you looking for something fun and different this October.  We're getting ready for the Great St. Augustine Skeleton Scavenger Hunt.  Think you are up for the challenge?  I can't wait myself any excuse for a trip to St. Augustine. Here's the scoop. Good Luck!

              Try and find all 11 skeletons hidden in St. Augustine

There's no bones about it - the Great St. Augustine Skeleton Scavenger Hunt! is back.

Ripley's St. Augustine Attractions has strategically placed 11 skeletons at downtown St. Augustine businesses. They are all visible from the street and are hangin' around at businesses near the Ripley's Red Train route. The challenge is to find them all, take photos, and upload them to the Ripley's St. Augustine Facebook page at: www.facebook.com/saintaugustineripleys.

Bonus points will be awarded for fun photos! Participants can pick up a complimentary Red Train map at Ripley's to assist them in their search.

Everyone who completes the challenge will be eligible for a chance to win a $200 gift card and a family 4-pack of tickets to Ripley's St. Augustine attractions. There will be two runner-up prizes of $100 each. Winners will be announced at 5:00 pm on Halloween at Ripley's St. Augustine Odditorium (winners will not need to be present to claim prizes).

Ripley's Believe It or Not! will be the place to be on Halloween night. The fun starts at 5:30 pm with an "all aboard!" for the Trick or Treat Train. Ripley's Red Train will stop at four locations where kids can collect candy. After that, there's a stop at Bayfront Mini Golf for a round of "Ghoulie Golf", games, candy and prizes. Then at 7:00 pm, there will be a costume contest and special outdoor showing of "Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit" at the City Municipal Marina behind the mini golf course. After the movie, the train will take everyone back to Ripley's. The cost for all this is just $9 for adults and $5 for children ages 3 and up. Reservations are not needed.
 
For people interested in a real-life hunt for ghosts, spooks and specters, there will be a special Ripley's Ghost Train Adventure run at 8:00 pm on Halloween night. Guests can use EMF meters and laser grids to hunt for paranormal activity - right in the heart of one of America's most haunted cities. Reservations are needed for this event and can be made by calling 904-824-1606.
