Murder Mystery Dinners
 

Saturday June 8, 2024

Game of Thorns  

The noble and somewhat dim-witted Prince Cedric, has been ruthlessly dispatched from this mortal coil. His body was discovered n the courtyard, missing a head, two fingers, and a rather fetching pair of velvet slippers.

 Tonight, we shall embark on a journey of blood-soaked intrigue and dark secrets, where allies will become enemies, and the meek shall rise to expose their hidden daggers. For in the face of adversity, we shall be united as one kingdom, one family, and one big, dysfunctional, and occasionally murderous mess!

Upon an excavation, within a forest round,

the fat and lifeless body of Tweedledee was found.

All twisted up and twisted down, and partly

covered with leaves, his tee shirt filled with

pepper stains, and jelly on his sleeves. 

An old tea pot in pieces still, found perched\upon his head, it is of almost certainty that Tweedledee is dead.  The motive and or reasoning is anybody's 

guess, a crime of such proportion deserves

a quick confess.

Saturday Dec 14, 2024
6PM-9PM

It has been 23 years since Miss Havisham was  abandoned at the altar by her fiancée. Her mansion is now in ruins, and her days are spent in a mad haze wandering its halls wearing the same wedding gown (now tattered and decayed) that she was almost married in.  An old skeleton has recently been dug up on her property.  A mutilated, murdered corpse, that at least

for Miss Havisham, must be her long lost fiancé. 

Was he murdered on the day of her wedding? Is that why he disappeared?

A plan is set forth, to discover the murderer as the very guests that were present on her wedding day

23 years ago receive invitations to spend Christmas Eve at Satis Manor. 

Shortly after 11:30 PM Captain Smith's first officer Bill Murphy was found dead in his cabin with a rope tied around his neck.

He lay face down on the carpet and his tea service was smashed and in disarray on the floor. the body was discovered by Mr. Ismay.

A Titanic medical examiner explained that the death was possibly due to a special 

"hog-tie" that caused asphyxiation. This is an unusual knot not known by many. 

More evidence will follow soon!

HOW IT WORKS

Step into a world of mystery and intrigue at 3 Keys Lock Murder Mysteries! 

Murder Mystery Dinners have been around for a long time, and are a great way to make new acquaintances or get together with old friends.

Our scheduled Murder Mystery dinners are located at our office, 221 New Bridge Street. Each ticket includes a 4-course meal and a character booklet. Upon arriving, you will receive your character booklet and can familiarize yourself with your character in which there will contain a script for everyone to follow. Once the game begins, there will be time in between each course where all characters are able to explore the other rooms for clues to aid them in solving the mysterious murder. Dressing up is encouraged but not mandatory! We have a closet of costumes and props to assist you in getting into character!

If you are interested in a non-scripted murder or booking a private party of your own, please contact us.

How it Works

Testimonials

"Murder Mystery games, like escape rooms, assist in communicating through acting, working together and using make-believe, which is sorely missed as we get old"
