Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
No ID is required. We do not recommend our shows for children under 13 years of age. Plots may involve adult situations or mature themes (infidelity, drug use, gambling). Humor may contain mild adult innuendo.
What are my parking options for getting to and from the event?
There are several areas for free or inexpensive parking surrounding our venue in the Sundance Square area of downtown. For instance, there is a very close $5 parking lot at 117 Houston Street, Fort Worth (near the Weatherford Street intersection) — just walking distance from The Red Goose Saloon. There is also valet parking available right outside the venue (but we cannot validate, sorry).
How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
What's the refund policy? Is my ticket transferable?
All sales are final and nonrefundable. No exceptions. However, if you can’t make the show, you are allowed to give someone else your ticket for that date.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
No. Your name will be on the check-in list with our Mystery Host at the door. We will email you a confirmation with directions and additional information, however.
Is it ok if the name on my ticket doesn't match the person who attends?
How can members of a group sit together if they reserve separately?
When reserving, you are asked if you are part of a larger group. If you are, type your group name (e.g. The Smith Party, or The Jones Party) into the space provided, and we will sit you all together.
Is it gory or scary?
Stage Blood is used, but nothing too graphic. This is not like a haunted house experience. No one is going to leap out and try to scare you.
May I take pictures?
Yes! We encourage it… as long as you tag it (if you upload it to social media) as KEITH & MARGO’S MURDER MYSTERY TEXAS.
Is the murder mystery before or after the dinner?
During. It begins the moment you park your car, and ends only as you exit the restaurant.

What Others Have To Say
We wanted to do something different for our anniversary and this was perfect. We had so much fun. They keep you entertained, laughing, interacting and guessing the whole time. I highly recommend.
I was the killer! I would love to do this again. If you have never been please go and attend. It’s an amazing experience!
Ingenious scripts and motives for murder! We are amazed at the talented actors and actresses, or should I say “Con Men” and “Con Women” that are so good at interacting with people and misleading them.
They helped me make my marriage proposal very special as they worked it right into the show. My fiancee was surprised and excited! Thanks, guys!
My date had tried one of your competitors and she told me that your show was far better on every level.
A must see if you’ve never been or even if you’ve “seen em all”.
It was one of the most memorable moments of our honeymoon!
It would make a super date night. It wasn’t campy or corny.
Absolutely nowhere else can you have this much fun being a murder suspect. We left with a third of the votes naming me the killer which is awesome!
I’ve been twice, and both times we had a blast. We were genuinely duped by an actor at our table who succeeded in her role as another guest like us.
Almost peed my pants! Loved the Lieutenant!
The audience engagement was amazing!
