Imagine you are spending the weekend at the 1886 Crescent Hotel and Spa, enjoying dinner when suddenly……a shot rings out and the person sitting next to you keels over dead!
Before you know it, a detective arrives and you’ve become the leading witness in a murder investigation. And that’s just the beginning. Complete with clues, twists, and turns, an ingenious plot starts to unravel during the course of the mystery weekend as you then start to track a killer, or killers, all played by incognito actors in the group masquerading as guests.
At the end of the weekend, after investigating and collecting all the clues and interviewing your favorite suspects, you have the chance to hand in your solution and prove motive, means, and opportunity, not only to clear your own name but to show everyone that all that crime show watching did not go to waste.
Since 1985, Keith & Margo’s murder mystery weekend has offered a thrilling opportunity for people with a passion for cold-blooded murder, slippery red herrings, diabolical clues, and creative detective work to immerse themselves in one of the most unusual, interactive, and spine-tingling experiences ever!
The Murder Mystery Weekend Itinerary Includes:
AFTERNOON – ARRIVAL AND CHECKIN
Meet your Murder Mystery Host at the cocktail reception after check-in where you will be given a suspect list and other material. Do not trust anyone at the hotel, including the person you came with. (You never know, anyone could be involved!)
7:00 PM: RECEPTION AND DINNER
This is where it all gets started. We highly recommend you get to know your fellow guests as soon as possible. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and start narrowing down your suspect list. Everyone is fair game. Something is bound to happen here. Take a headcount. Someone is going to leave at some point during the evening– ten toes up.
9:00 AM: BREAKFAST
The mystery will be well underway at this point. For the early risers, this will be a good time for some important updates.
10:00 AM – 1:00 PM
1:00 PM – LUNCH
You’re not going to want to miss this. Be prepared for some twists and turns.
2:00 – 7:00 P.M.
Free-time. You’re on your own. Go shopping, visit downtown Eureka Springs, or follow your favorite suspects around town!
7:00 PM – RECEPTION –
Things will probably turn a little nasty right about now—and we’re not talking about the weather!
8:00 PM – DINNER —
Just when you think you’ve got this whole thing figured out—things change.
9:30 PM till…?
Free time or– this is a period of great introspection, deep thought, and playing hunches.
10:00 AM – BRUNCH
When you enter the dining room for the denouement you will be expected to hand in your final solution.
This is where it all comes together. Were you right? Did that one little slip of the tongue by your favorite suspect pay off?
The final scene is dramatic and very rewarding. The Grand Prize is awarded to the sleuth with the best answer and “boobie prizes” to the most hilarious answers.
