Dying to Throw A Murder Mystery Birthday Party?

Here’s how it’s gonna go down:

Your guests will arrive and be transformed into sleuths and suspects right before your eyes.
Our professional actors guide the themed story of your selection, from our Gatsby-esque 1920’s murder mystery to an 80’s extravaganza.
Spoiler alert: someone’s gonna die. It’ll be up to you and your guests to crack the case and figure out who had the motivation to commit the crime.
Our mysteries only ever have one correct solution, so put your thinking cap on and collect the clues you need to track down the killer!

How do you throw a murder mystery birthday party?



Choose a few possible days you think will work for your group. Ideally, the weekend is best for most people.


Draft up a list so you know how many people to plan for and ensure you don’t forget anyone!



Break down your costs to determine how much you can realistically spend on the party.



If you’re hiring actors for a murder mystery or having your guests play card games, make sure you plan those in advance!



Will you be providing food, drinks, and cake in your home, or will you go to a restaurant?



After completing these steps, send out the invites.

It’s party time, baby!

A Birthday Party Idea ALL Guests Will Love

We mean business when it comes to making this a killer party for all! After years of honing, we’ve perfected our mysteries so that both outgoing and shy people will have a fun time.

If you have some wallflowers on your guest list, they will enjoy hunting down clues and finding the killer. They don’t need to be in the spotlight or feel singled out.

Or maybe your group is a camera crew away from starring in their own reality show. The extroverted guests can be featured as suspects with a more prominent role. It’s always hilarious to watch them improvise with our actors!

Party Themes for Adults and Kids Alike!

There’s no age limit for celebrating a birthday. To be honest, adult birthday parties these days boast just as much excitement and pizazz as kids’ birthday parties. 

We can do both! With our adjustable ratings system, a show can be tweaked from a G rating all the way up to R if you’re feeling daring.

We believe hitting those milestones, from a child’s 10th birthday to the Over the Hill 60th, are deserving of a bash with fun festivities. Well, at least until you actually die.

Though bringing talent and materials out to your house may seem expensive, the truth is actually quite the opposite! We’re able to customize our packages based on your specific needs and guest count and will work with you to find the price that’s right with you.

No two experiences with our company will be the same, all thanks to YOU! This is a birthday idea you can use year after year. That’s why a murder mystery is one of the most unique party themes for adults.

Pick a Fresh Idea

Most people have never been to a murder mystery before and have it on their bucket list. Your event type alone will create hype for the big event.

Consider Inviting Old Friends

Your birthday is the one time a year you have an excuse to catch up with people you haven’t in a while! Life gets busy. Reach out!

Blend Your Party's Time Frame

Your birthday mystery can be combined with dinner, present opening, and more. We’ll work with your actors to make this a seamless process.

Keep Your Guests Engaged

A themed party is always a fun excuse for your friends to cut loose. Who wouldn’t like the chance to play a different character for a night?
