This Alice in Wonderland murder mystery party game imagines a continuation of the book, and comes in two forms – this is the ‘murder’ mystery version (there is also a version that is a non-murder, simply called “Mystery in Wonderland”, that just explores how everyone went mad and who was the culprit!). The non-murder version is great for all-ages, and also a hit with our library program and summer reading program clients around the world! This version, however, is the murder mystery, and involves our poor friend, The Caterpillar, finally meeting his end after his hookah has been poisoned. This version contains all the features of the family friendly murder mystery party, so you and your guests will solve the mystery game while also discovering how everyone in Wonderland went crazy! Added bonus points for turning your Murder in Wonderland party into a full-blown Mad Hatter’s Tea Party murder mystery game! It’s all up to you and how you design your mystery party!

It has been two weeks since Alice’s initial visit to Wonderland, when she went on her crazy adventure after following a rabbit carrying a pocket watch. Safe at home with no one after her head, Alice found that she was quickly bored once again with her studies and those dreaded books that lacked pictures and conversations! Something troubled her about the residents of Wonderland, and Alice found herself obsessed with discovering the reason that most everyone in Wonderland had gone completely mad! Finally, Alice’s curiosity got the better of her and she threw herself down the rabbit hole once more. Yet, as she addressed the residents of Wonderland at the Knaves trial (which was STILL going on!), she was interrupted by the Cheshire Cat, who had found The Caterpillar dead beneath his mushroom! Upon closer inspection, it was ruled that The Caterpillar’s death had been a homicide, as his hookah had been laced with poison! Suddenly the residents of Wonderland find themselves suspects in both a murder investigation, as well as a plot to drive all the residents of Wonderland mad!

This mystery is a 4/5 on the Angel Rating Scale. While it does contain a murder plot, there is mention of a hookah – some people take that to be a drug reference, consider whether your guests will clutch their pearls at the mention of The Caterpillar smoking a hookah. Having said that, there are no references to  sex or alcohol – this Wonderland mystery party game is suitable for most attendees.

Throw a Wonderland party that even the Cheshire Cat would stick around for with inspiration from our Pinterest board!

Great time! This was our second murder mystery party and it generates huge fanfare each time. The mysteries are set up to be challenging but not overly challenging and its great that everyone can participate without knowing who the killer is beforehand! This company is great to work with and is always accommodating to questions.

The best party – EVER! Shot in the Dark Mysteries made the planning so easy that we could focus on making our basement look like an 80s prom. Our theme was “Chiller Thriller” and we had a blast decorating. Every person that came said they had so much fun and wanted to host their own parties. The idea that no knows who the killer is works so well. Thanks Shot in the Dark Mysteries for providing an easy, fabulous way to have fun with friends!

I love Shot in the Dark mysteries! They made so many of our parties (birthdays, new years, just because!) extra special by getting our friends engaged in solving the crimes! They’re such a great value, and even our friends that aren’t extroverts can get into being a character and sleuthing. I also love that I am able to host and participate in the murder mystery! So much fun!!
