The Dinner Detective Interactive Murder Mystery Show
Solve a hilarious murder case while you feast on a fantastic four-course plated dinner at “America’s largest interactive murder mystery comedy dinner show” at Doubletree Hotel By Hilton Tucson – Reid Park. Over the course of the night, costumed detectives will uncover clues, interrogate audience members that may or may not be part of the show, and help everyone get closer to solving the mystery, which is set during the present day and taking place in real time. Non-costumed actors, including the “killer,” are hiding somewhere in the room pretending to be regular guests–you may find yourself as a prime suspect. The audience member that gives the best correct answer of “whodunit?” before the killer is revealed will walk away with a stellar prize package. (Ages 15 and older)
