Murder on Ice – Dec 30th & 31st!

The 2023-2024 Murder Mystery season is well underway! So far this season our detectives have tackled murders involving dungeons, dragons and Vikings, and there is a lot more to come! In today’s announcement, Chief Detectives Michelle and Ryan will be leading our detectives in a Sherlock Holmes themed mystery set amongst the treacherous landscape of the Victorian era high society’s winter social season. Please join us as the Ravenwood Detective Agency tackles Murder on Ice…

In the midst of a winter wonderland, where snowflakes danced gracefully and the chill of the season embraced every nook and cranny, a grand castle stood proud against the frozen landscape. This resplendent fortress, best known as the site of some of the winter social season’s most exclusive high society events, was now shrouded in an air of unease. A sinister mood had infiltrated the otherwise jubilant festivities, as the icy grip of death had claimed a well heeled member of fashionable society.

Intrigue and suspicion lingered in the air like the soft whispers of the falling snow. The glittering ballrooms, adorned with glistening chandeliers and intricate tapestries, had transformed into a labyrinth of secrets and hidden motives. Behind every elegant smile and whispered conversation, a web of deception was woven.

The victim, Lady Regina Thorne, a distinguished noblewoman, had met her untimely demise on the eve of the much-anticipated annual Gala on Ice, a masquerade ball taking place exclusively on the frozen surface of the castle’s lake. Found lifeless at the edge of the ice with one skate on and one skate missing, the cause of Lady Regina’s death remains elusive, leaving the social set bewildered and atwitter. The queen herself has summoned renowned detective, Sherlock Holmes, to solve the mystery and salvage what remains of the social season.

The game is afoot in this icy realm of secrets and shadows, where every glance may be a clue, and every whisper a deception. The Ravenwood Detective Agency is calling all agents, novice and veteran alike, to assist Mr. Holmes in solving the case. Join us December 30th & 31st for Murder on Ice!

Tickets for Murder on Ice are $100. As with all of our mysteries, the event starts after dinner the first night. Late arrivals will be accommodated as best as possible, but to enjoy the full experience please attempt to arrive early Saturday evening.

And stay tuned for more announcements about our exciting 2023-2024 event season!
