)-- SA GPS Adventure Tours, Inc. in partnership with AudioConexus Inc. today announced the launch of a new interpretive tool, the GPS Ranger™, providing GPS guided paranormal ghost walking tour experiences in St. Augustine in English and Spanish.
Visitors to St. Augustine can now experience North America’s oldest city while being captivated by ghost stories and paranormal phenomena on walking tour experiences that intertwine with St. Augustine’s rich history and magnificent architectural ambiance. The GPS Ranger™ is a handheld GPS (Global Positioning System) triggered computer device that delivers innovative walking tour experiences and on-site interpretation, including compelling narratives, engaging musical soundtracks, photography, text, and interactive maps based on the location of the user.
Jeff Tabor, President and CEO, SAGPS Adventure Tours said “We are excited about the opportunity to deliver innovative and rich walking tour experiences that offer visitors to St. Augustine compelling stories and outstanding audio theatre experiences. We’re setting a new standard of excellence by providing high-quality, compelling creative content to our guests. Shivers & Awe lives up to its name, it’s an experience our guests will never forget.”
Tours trigger content around St. Augustine’s paranormal Points of Interest, providing location based experiences on a one hour walking tour route. Additionally, all of the tour content can be viewed on demand, regardless of location, so visitors can learn about the areas they might not have time to visit.
“We are thrilled to launch the GPS Ranger™ tour guide system in St. Augustine,” said Jonathan Stanley, President and CEO of AudioConexus Inc. “We worked closely with SAGPS Adventure Tours to deliver fun and entertaining experiences, presenting a series of ghost stories that turned me into a believer. St. Augustine is the epicentre of ghost activity and when I experienced the tour, I found myself on the edge of my seat, asking myself – is anybody there? We’re very excited about the opportunity to work with SAGPS Tour Adventures and being a part of entertaining and educational stories for visitors seeking a whole new way to experience the paranormal phenomenon of St. Augustine.”
GPS Ranger™ devices are rented from SAGPS Adventure Tours and are available in English or Spanish.
