I've never been to a Murder Mystery Dinner Show. How does it work?
The show takes place in between the courses of your 4-course dinner. The show is an interactive and improvised comedic murder mystery set in the present day. None of the performers are dressed in costume, but instead are dressed just like everyone else; therefore you do not know who is a part of the show and who isn't.

The show takes place throughout the entire room, performers may even be seated at your table. Part of the fun from the beginning is trying to figure out who's involved in the crime and who's not. Throughout the night, murders and mayhem will occur, hidden clues will come forth and the Detectives will help everyone try to solve the crime. In the end, there is a prize package for the Top Sleuth who comes closest to solving the crime.

What does admission include?
Every murder mystery admission ticket includes an interrogation reception, hors d'oeuvres, fresh rolls and butter, a mixed baby greens salad, your choice of entree, dessert, iced tea and coffee with free refills as well as gratuity for the waitstaff. A tantalizing Prize Package for the Top Sleuth who comes closest to solving the crime will also be given out. There is a full bar (cash only) if you would like to purchase cocktails.
What type of food is served?

Entree choices are typically as follows (and are subject to change): Lemon Thyme Grilled Chicken Breast, BBQ Bourbon Glazed Pork Chop, and Four Cheese Tortellini. Dessert is typically New York Style Cheese Cake with Strawberry Compote,Whipped Cream and Chocolate Sauce. If you have any food allergies or dietary restrictions, please notify Virgin Experience Gifts at the time of booking.

Do I have to participate in the show?
Guests are not required to perform in any way. However, the murder mystery performers are not dressed up in costume so the audience will not know whether or not you are a part of the show and may interact with you on their own.
What is the minimum age?
Due to the interactive and somewhat unpredictable nature of the shows, the minimum age requirement is 15 and adult supervision is required.
How does seating work?
Everyone has assigned seats at 8 - 10 person banquet-style tables. If your party is larger than 10, please let us know how you would like us to divide up your party; you will be seated at two tables next to one another.
*All seats are center stage! There is no set stage and the action happens all around you. The performers make an effort to engage all guests in solving the crime.
What is the dress code?
Business casual or dressy casual is absolutely required. No T-shirts, shorts, baseball caps or torn clothes are permissible.

The presentation was great, unfortunately the venue was not. The room was crowded and unfortunately the cooling system was not working which made it unbearably hot and not a pleasant experience.
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hi Marion, I am so sorry to hear that the A/C was not kicked into high gear during your experience! I can understand how uncomfortable that can be and I am happy to hear that you still had a lovely time with the experience itself. Thank you for taking a moment to share that with us so we can pass the feedback along! Best, Brianna
If I were just reviewing the murder mystery dinner, I would give it five stars. However, the venue where it was held was less than ideal. The food and service were great, but parking was AWFUL.
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hello Robert, I appreciate that you left a two part review, and appreciate your honest feedback. We take feedback and do our best to pass it along to the proper channels or implement improvements where able. I am delighted that you had a great time out and I hope you were able to solve the mystery. With that being said, I understand how frustrating it can be to get into the parking lot, and I am very sorry for the troubles. Despite that hiccup, I am glad you had a 5 star mystery dining experience.  Regards, Brianna
The murder mystery experience was fair, at best. Unfortunately, although the actors and actresses really tried, it was a bit of a mediocre performance. The temperature in the room was very warm, even though we had requested on a few occasions to crank up the AC. Food was fair. Chicken was salty and the salmon was dry. There was no unlimited ice tea or alternate beverage as advertised in the brochure. One refill of water was offered. Maybe our expectations were too high. Would not recommend this experience and would probably not wish to pursue it again.

I am so sorry that this adventure did not exceed your expectations, but I am grateful you took a chance on this and tried something new. Although it wasn't the most exhilarating time, I hope that you were able to solve the mystery and discover the murderer. I know how important a good and tasty meal is and I will be sure to pass along your feedback regarding your experience. I hope we can help you try another new adventure in the near future!  Best, Brianna
