This was such a fun event. My family rarely gets a real night out to play together. Sure you can watch a movie or TV but this gave us a chance to be a part of a live game. I was surprised at how interactive it was, but once people came out of their shells in some cases it was... More

I went with my husband, our son my sister and my Mom. Even though our ages ranged from 91 to 16 , we all had a great time! The actors were charming, and the audience participation was very good, and they were funny too!

We attended at Burton Manor in Livonia. The food was not good. We found the murder mystery aspect hokey. Once the guilty party was revealed, we scratched our head if the story line added up to the ending. We suspected not. For the cost (and I 'saved money' with GroupOn), we could have had a wonderful dinner elsewhere. On top... More

We purchased "Gold tickets" promising early admission preferential seating, a mystery actor at your table, and a picture. We were asked to be at the event 30 minutes early so we could enter early and receive instructions for the play. At 7:00PM rather the 6:30 PM they requested Gold ticket holders to arrive, they opened the doors. We were herded... More

They pack 200 people into a hall, probably 90% of the people are there on a Groupon (which is how/why they sell out every event). The catered food was decent, but nothing to write home about. The acting was very amateurish, and the guest stars were poorly coached on how to perform their roles. As a result, nobody guessed the... More

We visited the Murder Mystery Company for my husband's birthday. We were supposed to have early access ticket, there was no early access. The doors open and everyone was let in at the same time. We did not op for the gold circle experience. We did see the seating for the gold circle and there weren't any better than the... More

I took advantage of a massive Groupon discount and attended one of the murder mystery dinners with my boyfriend and a co-worker. We were really interested in the idea of such a kitchy event but it was a bit of a disappointment. Instead of it being a murder mystery we watched unfold while eating, it was an acted "presentation" of... More

I had seen this event on Groupon a number of times and thought it would be something my mother-in-law and her friends might enjoy so I called and reserved for a party of six. It said that there would be group interaction so I expected a performance with a few volunteers from the crowd. This was not the case. Each... More

We had a Mystery Dinner at our home for my dad's 80th. We chose the gangster theme. The actor was very patient and flexible with everyone in our family (ages 11-80) It is a great idea for a different sort of party . People enjoyed dressing up and acting. It did get a bit confusing though. The 16 year old... More
