The Best Murder Mystery Dinner near Kansas City

If you’ve never experienced the thrill of playing a role in a murder mystery dinner, you’ve been missing out. It’s a unique and memorable way to enjoy drinks and snacks with companions and strangers. We’ve watched relationships become stronger and even seen a few lasting friendships form while solving a mystery together.

Here’s what to expect at our Murder Mystery Dinners near Kansas City:

  1. As guests begin to arrive, we’ll start with our beautiful charcuterie, cheese, fancy dips, snacks, and desserts. During “cocktail hour” you’ll be able to meet the other players. We concoct themed mocktails, but you’re more than welcome to bring your own adult beverages.
  2. As our murder mystery dinner near Kansas City progresses, guests will be split into roles. Most will become investigators, trying to solve the crime of the evening. A few, however, will be suspects (you can request this ahead of time!). Suspects will get information about their character a few days before the event, so they can be fully prepared to play their part.
  3. There are eight roles to fill. But no one will know who the culprit is, so everyone will have plenty of fun trying to solve the crime throughout the evening.
  4. Let the games begin! On average, our murder mystery dinners last about three hours, from 6 pm to 9 pm.
  5. For summer months, from June through September, we are offering private murder mysteries for a minimum of ten guests. Price is $50 per person and will include a catered meal. We’ll resume our regularly scheduled themed dinners in October.
