We had a great time, their was over 200 guest's attending this affair. We were taken to a table for four, two young girls were and full of life. Our host explain all that would be taken place, & then left us a number of booklets explaining everything that would be taken place. Then they started serving our salads & proceeded with the balance of dinner, they also went around taking orders for drinks. Then the fun began when a drink was served to the leader of the show who passed out DEAD!!!!, then with special dollar bills we all wen't around to different tables to make deals to receive idear's to who the killer was. Many of the people were dressed up in costumes that were great. We then used all of our ideas to be able to find who the killer was. By then we were served desert which was great. And to our surprise, our table was chosen The Detective of the Night & was given the award which am having framed. Thank you Murder Mystery Co. This ended a great evening which happened to fall on our anniversary.

When hubby and I arrived, we checked into the hostess desk and was immediately taken into the world of the murder mystery. One of the characters was waiting at the hostess desk, completely in character and brought us to our table.As soon as we arrived at the venue, the show began! Characters came up to our table, one of our friends were assigned a role, actors gave announcements on how the evening would progress, and the murder mystery unfolded as we enjoyed our drinks and dinner.The best part of the murder mystery was the interactive aspect of the experience. There were parts of the show where the actors were in action and the audience engaged. Other parts of the show had guests up and out of their seats, questioning the suspects with "bribe money" and even taking the roles to heart by yelling accusations and cornering suspects in hopes to get clues. There were times it got pretty intense!I have to admit, I drag hubby to lots of different events. Most of which he puts on a smile for my pictures and "plays nice" with others, yet are activities he would not normally do for himself. But because it makes me happy, he comes along. Truth be told, hubby was TOTALLY into The Murder Mystery Company experience. I could see his genuine smiles and laughs throughout the night. The actors and story line were very entertaining. I saw his interest in the "brain work" needed to solve the mystery. And of course, the food and drinks were the perfect compliment to the wonderful show!

Took my wife for her birthday, didn't know what to expect but we had a great time. The actors engage the audience so be prepared to participate and meet new people. The mystery itself can be a bit confusing trying to gather all the evidence all while trying to understand the rules to the game for first timers. All and all still a great date nite.
