Had a great time, met the most interesting people - including our hosts. Quite honestly though, the mysteries we have done locally provide a greater opportunity for interaction. This mystery was very intriguing because it is primarily true. Made for a very interesting thought process. But,,,, More role playing, greater interaction, would have perhaps created more fun. Use the mansion, it is the best asset in the weekend (no offense Bob). I'm sure many of the rooms played a role in Mary's "quest" for inheritance.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Built as a wedding present in 1874, the Harry Packer Mansion now serves as a luxury inn within the Mauch Chunk Historic district of Jim Thorpe, PA, just 1 1/2 hours from Philadelphia and NYC.The Mansion was used by Disney as a model for the Haunted Mansion so it is only fitting that it is known for its award-winning Murder Mystery Weekends. Voted the best Murder Mystery weekend by the Book of Lists and recently the best on the East Coast by NPR. Come for the murder weekend, visit during the week for a quieter experience, stop by and enjoy a glass of wine on the veranda or take a tour through the mansion. ... more less
