Each of you will be given a character, either a suspect, a witness, or a detective. That way you can dress up and act out your part while trying to catch the killer. Enjoy your murder mystery over dinner or as an afternoon game with a treasure hunt! Each murder mystery boasts flamboyant characters, hilarious plot lines and fun games that build up to a thrilling revelation. Choose from ‘1920s Gin & Sin‘ or ‘Malice in Wonderland’ and we’ll do the rest.
