★★★★★ “This was by far the most fun I could have had for my husband’s birthday, I kept it a secret until we hit the hotel and someone spilled the beans when I asked where this was held, which was OK cause my hubby still didn’t know he was going to be a suspect. The dinner was good, the entertainment was fun, this was done really great.”
– Connie S, Trip Advisor

★★★★★ “By far the best Murder Mystery show I’ve ever seen! The actors are Fantastic, and the story line is to die for! We never stopped laughing, my cheeks hurt. Hats off to the Talent!!”
