Searching for something different to do with your group of Friends?
Murder Mystery Events at Maple Hill Manor are sensational!

For over 30 years, Maple Hill Manor has hosted Murder Mystery Events – an evening of mystery, intrigue, and delicious food – not to mention, GREAT ENTERTAINMENT & FUN! Enjoy a hilarious game, an elegant Gourmet Dinner, and the comforts of a wonderful historic home. The games are intended to be very interactive ad-lib dialog among the guests, using game clues and accusations provided at the time of the game. Each guest plays a role, lively and hilarious banter occurs throughout the multi-course dinner meal, and a murder will take place by dessert. The objective for everyone is the same – to figure out who committed the murder and why. Prizes to be awarded for best acting, best costume, and SUPER SLEUTH. You’ll wonder when you last laughed so much or had so much fun!

This makes a GREAT GIFT IDEA for holiday gift giving, Bachelorette Parties OR Corporate Retreat Bonding as well!
