Gladstone High class of 1987 has gathered for their prom, and what a night it will be! The hair is big, the dresses are puffy and the social hierarchy is the stuff John Hughes movies are made of. The big moment of the night – the announcement of the prom king and queen, is at hand, but the nominees for prom king are no where to be found! Shortly after the big announcement, one of the nominees, jock Scott Mahoney is found dead in the boys locker room, having his head flushed in the toilet until he drowned!

This bully had plenty of enemies, but which one of them killed him? Test your deductive reasoning during this murder mystery investigation as you search to find the suspect who had the motive, means and opportunity to commit the Murder at the 1980s Prom!

This mystery is a 4/5 on the Angel Rating Scale. While it does contain a murder plot, there are no mentions of drugs, sex or alcohol, and is suitable for most attendees.

Reviews for Murder at the 1980’s Prom Murder Mystery Party

I got this for a friends birthday. Everyone was skeptical at first, but once it started we had a blast! It was the highlight of the trip and now we do murder mysteries at all of our get togethers!

Absolutely! This was our 5th time hosting one of your mysteries and we always have such a blast! Thank you for what you do!
We love your mysteries and we had so much fun at our last party this new years doing the 80s prom! Can’t wait for the next one!
Saturday night I was able to gather 42 people and a DJ to host a Murder at the 1980’s Prom… we had a blast! It was an activity that I wanted to do. I noticed our church has members really didn’t communicate with each other. This version of a MM makes people who normally wouldn’t talk to one another,talk! So I asked the bishop of our church and he said yes…nothing more than just having fun! And my tactic worked! Everyone even the “wallflowers” were talking!
