Thanks to our recent partnership with the World Circus Association, our clients can now investigate a murder while flying on a trapeze, swallowing swords and catapulting through fire rings.


Circus Murder Mystery Parties (from the company who brought you Murder Mystery Speed Dating and All-Inclusive Mystery Getaways) will be offered in most major cities in the world. Hosts and guests will go to their nearest circus school to play out the mystery, with the circus professionals being suspects in a murder.

“We are really excited to be constantly innovating the murder mystery party industry,” says Shot In The Dark Mysteries’ Creative Director Leigh Clements, “and we feel that Circus Murder Mystery Parties are the next in a long line of mystery experiences that will help our hosts create memories with their family and friends that no one will ever forget! I think the idea of swinging on a trapeze while questioning a suspect in a murder is a lot of fun, and our clients will enjoy the experience, whether they are 5 or 500 years old!”

Packages will vary in price, with standard circus stunts like flying trapeze at the lower end of the price scale, and higher-danger stunts, like being shot from a cannon, costing more.
