I've never been to a murder mystery dinner before - how does it work?

It is a four-course sit-down dinner. In between each course of the meal, another part of the show will take place. The show is an interactive and improvised comedic murder mystery set in the present day. None of the performers are dressed in costume; therefore you won't know who is a part of the show and who isn’t.

The show takes place throughout the entire room, and performers may actually be seated at your table, so 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 show's 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 is included with the ticket?

Every admission ticket includes: An interrogation reception, hors d'oeuvres, fresh rolls and butter, salad, your choice of entree, dessert, and wait staff gratuity for food service. There is also a prize for the Top Sleuth at the end of the night!

Are drinks included?

Water, iced tea, and coffee are included with your ticket. There is a full bar available for additional drink purchases and nightly drink specials. 

Do I have to participate in the show?

You do not need to participate in the show, but are encouraged to if you like! However, since the performers are not in costume, your fellow audience members may try to interact with you as they work to uncover the culprits!

Is there a minimum age to participate?

The recommended minimum age for this show is 18 years old. Guests 15 years and older will be permitted but require adult supervision if under 18.

What type of food is served?

Menu items are subject to change, but here are a few sample dishes:

Hor d'Oeuvres -
Fresh Garden Vegetable Spring Rolls
Prosciutto Wrapped in Fresh Melon
Seasoned Sausage Stuffed with Gourmet Mushrooms

Salad - Mixed Green Salad

Entree Selections -

It was poorly organized and not done professionally it was a very disappointing experience
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hello Gary, I am truly sorry that this experience was disappointing and did not fulfill your expectations. I appreciate your feedback about the organization of this event, and I will be sure to take note of that. Overall, I hope you were still able to have some fun solving mysteries on this unique dining experience! Regards, Briana
Food was only ok, but the entertainment was great. A lot of fun for a couple's night or group of friends. I wouldn't bring younger kids but older teens might have a good time.
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hello Shannon, I appreciate your feedback! I apologize for the food not exceeding expectations; however, I am overjoyed that you were still able to have fun and entertaining experience. Regards, Briana
We showed up 20 minutes early. There were already drunk people buying from the cash bar being loud and obnoxious. By the time they started checking us in, the area was packed with people (no Covid precautions at all). We thought this would be a fun and interactive dinner murder mystery like others we have gone to and enjoyed. Unfortunately, we didn't feel comfortable and left before it started.
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hi there, Jeanna! Thank you first and foremost for taking the time to share your experience with us. That is the only way we can grow and get better as a company! I would like to apologize for the less than idea situation you walked into as you checked into the show. While our Murder Mystery Dinner Shows are a staple of our most popular experiences, we understand that sometimes things can start off on the wrong foot. It is a major disappointment to hear you felt the need to vacate before the show began. I have added a credit to your account and we hope to get you out on another experience that may be more your speed soon! I have also reached out with a bit more detail via email as well. We look forward to turning this experience around! All the best, Jake.
Very nice evening
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts

Play characters and story line and interaction with audience was great. The food was not good only desert and salad were good main dish awful.
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hi Ida, Thank you for taking the time to write in about your experience. While I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the "murder mystery" aspect of the show, I am sorry that the "dinner" part did not live up to expectations. I'll make sure to share your concerns regarding the food with our show company as I know they are always striving to provide a better experience for their customers, as are we. Warm Regards, Inah
