About The Event

Are you prepared for a touch of the eccentric, and steeled against a chill up your corset? Are you yearning to add an experience at once fantastical while also unnerving to your seaside holiday? As the mists roll off the seaside, join us for a historical walking tour with a murderous twist!

There's been a very Victorian murder in the sleepy seaside resort of Cape May. Enter a world of stodgy alienists and charismatic charlatans, saucy painted ladies and tweedy robber barons, steam powered engines and horse drawn carriages. Stroll the byways and shadowy corners of Cape May, led by your guide - who just happens to be the victim of a 130 year old murder!

You will be tasked with inspecting the crime scene, gathering the clues, and questioning the suspects you meet along the way. And perhaps, just perhaps, you can stay one step ahead of a wily murderer, avoid a similar fate, and have a chance to solve a - MURDER BY GASLIGHT!

Tours will last approximately one hour and 15 minutes, and be held from Sunday through Thursday at

6 p.m. / 6:20 p.m. / 6:40 p.m. / 7 p.m.

8 p.m. / 8:20 p.m. / 8:40 p.m. / 9 p.m.
