Murder Mystery Weekends
Join us at our holiday parks for our Murder Mystery Weekends. We have teamed up with talented murder mystery actors from The Moonstone Theatre Company to bring you a weekend of highly engaging and interactive mysteries to solve. You will have to eavesdrop on conversations and keep your eyes peeled for vital clues that will help you solve the murder. Talk to the suspects, find out who was where and when? Did they know the victim? But beware there will also be suspects trying to mislead you to cover their tracks. Can you piece all of the evidence together to find out whodunnit, how and what their motive was?
Our murder mystery plots are varied and interesting - you may find yourself immersed in the world of Hollywood Glamour, back to school in the 1940s or part of a fairy tale gone wrong!
Our Murder Mystery Breaks in Devon and Cornwall offer fantastic value for money. Your weekend break will include self catering accommodation in a lodge, caravan or chalet. You will arrive on Friday and there will be a mystery to solve that evening including a free buffet. On Saturday a mystery will be set up for you to peruse at your leisure. Examine the evidence, follow the clues and chat with the suspects before presenting your findings at around 5pm. That will be followed by another murder mystery on Saturday evening.
Our Murder Mystery Breaks have been put together with a team of experts for maximum fun and enjoyment. Some sceanrios easily lend themselves to fancy dress themes which is encouraged but totally optional!
