Dinner, drinks and dancing; the party is turning out to be a smash, until a revelation strikes: a body has been found in another room of the Inn. With a room full of partygoers, who’s the culprit? Spend your night sleuthing and uncovering clues to solve the crime, as a guest at a murder mystery dinner party. Assume an identity for the evening, talk to other guests for clues, and by the end of the night, the guilty party will be revealed. For those with a creative flair, keen to role playing, problem solving and games, attending a murder mystery party is the ultimate night of chills, thrills and bonding with friends and strangers.
Westbrook’s Angel’s Watch Inn takes care of the planning, organization and storyline, providing murder three themes for guests to choose from. Check into the historic and quaint bed and breakfast, enjoy a piping hot cup of afternoon tea, and take advantage of their intensive massage and wellness program. Angel’s Watch Inn is equally prepared to pamper your tired body, as well as to stimulate and entertain your mind. Enjoy a sumptuous dinner, and later a mental thrill ride of an evening, at the Angel’s Watch Inn’s Murder Mystery Dinner where you can see one of the following mysteries unfold.
Murder at the Four Deuces
For some 1920’s era intrigue, grab your zoot suit and fedora or your flapper dress for a visit to Don Wannabe’s Four Deuces. Prohibition may be in effect, but no such laws can be found in the Deuces, with free-flowing wine and champagne a-plenty. Celebrate the opening of Wannabe’s new speakeasy and mingle with molls and gang members, but be prepared when the exuberant, jazz-filled night goes awry.
All Saints College Class of ’57 Reunion
Rock around the clock, clad in a poodle skirt, pom poms, leather jacket or your best ‘50s fashion, for a college reunion you won’t soon forget. Reunite with old classmates, catch up on the past few years, and celebrate the latest hit that heartthrob Elvis has released. But is someone bitter over past school time grudges? Remember the importance of having good attendance at this event.
The Santa Clause
Time for the office Christmas party, and a celebration of the cases settled and won this year at the Lie, Cheat and Steal Law Firm. The party is a must for all dedicated employees, but what about Mr. A. Big Scam, who never made it to the event? Investigate workplace woes and a law firm partnershipto die for, as you deduce the case of who killed the next in line for promotion: Mr. Scam.
For your next party, get together or reunion, consider reuniting with your friends, in a more memorable fashion than just another night at the local bar. Leave the planning and organizing in the capable hands of the Barry-Millspaugh family, and simply show up, assume a new identity and play along. After a long night of solving mysteries, enjoy dessert, a nightcap, and retire to your country-cozy room to recharge your batteries. Murder mystery party rates are $100 per participant, and require a two night minimum stay at the Angel’s Watch Inn.
