I had my Birthday Murder Mystery Party this past Saturday. I really did not know what to expect. The party was a success! This group of ladies really got involved in trying to guess who the suspect was. Everyone was laughing at the different type of questions that were being asked. The people that were the suspects were so on point with their parts that they played. The murderer did not know that he was the murder. This was such a hit that people are still talking about it to this day. Everyone enjoyed the party. It was very different. Only the suspects knew that this was a “Murder Mystery Party”. The guests did not know until I announced that there had been a murder. I commend your staff for a job well done. Thank you so much SHOT!

It was OFF THE HOOK FUN!!! Thank you SO much!!! You are awesome and everyone on our team was amazed at the quality of the mystery. We had one gal who had just attended a mystery dinner in Sacramento the evening before and she said the first five minutes of our event was better than the entire other thing.

Thank you for creating and hosting a customized murder mystery for our work group. It was a really unique way to end our conference. Everyone was raving about the awesome event the next day. The gal that was a reluctant suspect enjoyed it more than anyone! Well done!
