Murder at the Grand Hotel-October 19-21

It is not too early to book your room for this years Murder Mystery at Grand Hotel. If you can see yourself having a luxurious escape to another time, come join us at Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island. There are no cars, no taxis (except carriages) and time has a way of standing still.

Once you get off the ferry you will be transported. The hotel believes in luxury and treating you like royalty. And what better time than the fall when the air is crisp and the island is not over run with tourists.

Haven't you always wanted to be at a grand estate when a murder takes place? This is your opportunity. This year's murder is Midnight at the Masquerade.

The rustle of silks and feathers under muted conversation was probably the last thing heard by the tragically and unexpectedly deceased at the Billionaires’ Club Annual Masquerade Ball. With a mystery under each feathery façade, unmasking the killer may be quite a challenge. It’s up to you to determine which partygoer is guilty, bring this crime to justice, and save the party!Attend the Billionaires’ Club Annual Masquerade Ball and help get this soiree back on track by trading clues with your guests, gathering information, and solving the crime before the masked menace gets away!

Evening wear, ball gowns, Venetian masks, suits, and tuxes are what to wear to this high class night of masks and murder. Get ready for a glamorous evening of mystery, intrigue, and murder.

Jerry and I would love you to join us.

Consider yourself warned – not everything is how it seems at Grand Hotel during Murder Mystery Weekend. Join us in October for an interactive Murder Mystery Weekend with The Murder Mystery Company – founded in Michigan. The 2018 plot will be Midnight at the Masquerade!

We invite you to dress the part – pack your most glamourous, over-the-top, elegant attire for this modern-day Billionaire’s Ball. Click here for more information on how to dress for Midnight at the Masquerade.

The intrigue begins Friday night and the crime is solved Sunday morning.

Upon check-in you will receive your first packet of information and clues. Friday will be the kick-off performance which will set the tone of events and when the first murder takes place.

On Saturday there will be a brief gathering with the Detective who will explain the clue hunt that involves finding some of the suspects in different locations throughout the hotel. This will also allow guests some time on their own to enjoy the beauty of Mackinac Island and Grand Hotel.

Come back on Saturday afternoon where Act II will be performed and another murder will take place. The evening will conclude with three interactive mystery experiences and guests in different groups will be rotated into the mystery experiences. These will include: investigating a crime scene, suspect interrogation, and training with the Detective on how to catch somebody in a lie.

Sunday morning the murderer will be caught and the mystery will be solved!
