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 and iced tea 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 - Assorted Chef's Choice Appetizer Spread

Salad - Garden Salad w/ Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Bell Peppers & Feta Cheese

The Dinner Detective murder mystery dinner was a lot of fun. We've only done this one other time with another company and this one was so much better. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the meal. It was delicious. We were seated at round tables of 8, so it was fun talking with our tablemates as well as visiting with others from other tables. Talking with others is important, as you need to interrogate to help determine who is the culprit. My husband & I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Hi Deanna,  Thank you so very much for your great review. We really appreciate it.  I am happy to hear your husband and yourself enjoyed your Dinner Detective murder mystery experience. Super happy to play part in giving you a memorable experience.  Cheers,  Helen. 
So much fun! We had never done anything like that before; but we will do it again.
First time. Was expecting better clues. It was different and fun. Had ordered ham for the men but they received chicken. Surprised we weren't advised prior to the event.
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hi there, Dolores! Welcome to the wonderous world of murder mystery dinner shows! I'm so happy to hear you guys had fun and were able to help crack the case. While, we do also have you down as two chicken options, it sounds as though our partners made a last moment switch in menu. My sincerest apologies that this was not properly communicated, I have reached out to our partners to ensure this does not happen again. We hope to have you out on another fun night soon enough! Cheers, Jake.
Lots of fun and a very energetic atmosphere
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hi Kris! What an intriguing experience you took park in, I am so delighted to hear you had a fun time letting your inner detective shine through as you uncovered the night's mystery.  A delicious meal and a room full of sleuths immersed in crime solving sure sounds like an energetic atmosphere! Thank you for such a lovely review! Warm regards, Courtney
I guess I expected more of a play from which to draw clues to solve the mystery, instead of two,people cracking jokes and talking. As it is, this is a game best played with a group of people you know. Sharing the “evidence” was difficult when one or two hogged it. The food was good ... not great, and not the “elegant 4-course” dinner described on the website. While an interesting experience, we won’t do it again.
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hi Beverly, Thank you for taking the time to write in about your experience. We sincerely value your honest feedback as we want to be constantly improving our offerings. I apologize that the evening didn't live up to the expectations we set in our descriptions. The experience is definitely meant to be interactive both between the show actors and the rest of the dinner guests - I'm sorry you didn't get all of the information you could have to fully be immersed in the mystery. I hope you and your husband still had fun celebrating his birthday together. As a belated birthday present from us here at Cloud 9 Living, I have placed a $25 voucher in your account for use towards a future experience that I hope is more to your liking. Warm Regards, Inah
