“Not really worth the money”
Reviewed 27 October 2011

I always wanted to go to a murder msytery party, and this one being in an art msueum at night that was also a historic mansion, I thought it would be cool. Well it was lame and kinda boring. The theme was a Masquerade Ball and the actors played famous socialites of the Gilded Age. The lady playing Mrs. Astor was quite good. But there was no script! They sort of ad libbed the entire "play" and most of it was watching them do ballroom dances. You got 1/2 hour to find clues all around the small museum after the murder. It was somewhat diverting, but not worth $25.00 a ticket. If they had a script it may have been better.

“Engaging and funny evening in Newport”
Reviewed 16 July 2010

I attended the Newport Murder Mystery at Belcourt Castle last week and it was SO much fun. The cast gave a great performance. They were engaging and funny with the kids and adults. You get to wander around the mansion looking for clues to the murder and question the actors before meeting up at the end to find out who did it. It was a great way to see the mansion and be entertained. It is very interactive, the costumes are beautiful, and the setting is incredible. Really a unique experience.
