It’s the highlight of our trip to Chicago .

We caught the killer and laughed the whole way. Super fun, really great time. I was shy to participate at first, but Andre did a great job making us detectives.

Excellent fun!

I’ve never seen anything like it, it’s the best of a walking tour, and the best of a murder mystery game! We became detectives and played suspects trying to find the killer, who naturally, was my son. It’s a must if you are visiting
