"I just attended the murder mystery weekend in West Baden Springs. I was worried because I have only been to NC and really love Rocco but wanted to give a special shout out to Joe. The host/facilitator for the weekend. He just made the whole event. Absolutely hysterical. Detective was great and the finale was phenomenal. Superb acting. I should have never doubted Murder Mystery USA!"

Many of our staff never participated in a murder mystery dinner/lunch and were eager for the experience. Your actors did not disappoint our team; in fact, they surpassed many of their expectations. Everyone enjoyed how your actors engaged our staff and the laughter and fun we had making a memorable event. It promoted teamwork and exposed those who were willing to let others go down for something they did or did not do, LOL. Thanks again for a wonderful time and giving next year's planning committee something hard to beat.
