"Murder By Gaslight," the original walking tour murder mystery, premiered in Philadelphia in April 2021.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
AS SEEN ON PHL17:
After gathering at the crime scene and meeting James, your guide, you will be tasked with inspecting the scene and gathering the clues. Then, James will lead you on a walking tour of Independence Park, while reliving the last hour of his life. You will be regaled of stories about Philadelphia in the 1920’s while also meeting 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 IN THE JAZZ AGE!
The walk is about an hour long, so wear comfortable shoes! While the route is stroller friendly, we would recommend that all guests be comfortable with walking about a quarter of a mile.
There will be a series of stops along the way, where you will be able to access clues via the magic of QR codes (but we have you covered if your phone isn't QR friendly!) At each stop you will encounter suspects, played by professional actors. They will act out scenes that will provide more clues to help you solve the mystery!
