When you arrive our staff will be on hand to welcome you and explain your character.  No experience is necessary.  It is designed to be fun (not super hard).  During the event our host will narrate the chain of events that lead to the murder then it is up to you to solve the case!

  • Prizes are awarded to those who solve the mystery.   (so much fun)
