MURDER MYSTERY DINNER SHOW
Times: 6:15 AM to 1:45 PM (Saturdays*); 8:30 AM to 1:45 PM (Wednesdays)
Admission: $59.95
Website

The Dinner Detective is the largest, award-winning, interactive comedic murder mystery dinner show in the United States. Our immensely popular shows are set in the present day. Unlike other murder mystery dinner shows, here you will find no cheesy costumes, no recited campy dialogue and no hokey song and dance. Our performers are dressed just like everyone else, leaving all of the guests to suspect who is a part of the show and who is not. In many instances, guests are seated with the performers and don’t even realize it until they die…the performers, that is! Our Detectives proceed to interrogate everyone and find clues as more people die. At the end of the night, prizes are awarded to the Top Sleuth who solves the crime.

 

ADULT BOARD GAME NIGHT

The Roman Candle Pizzeria will be dropping off pizzas around 6pm (available for sale by the slice), and we also offer some snacks.
