What We Do

You throw the party and we bring the mystery!


At a Ghost Ship party, there's no sitting around a table reading from a script. Search for clues, share information, and mingle as you would at a regular party, all while trying to solve a complex murder mystery.

We Provide:

  • An in-character representative to guide the party

  • Physical clues

  • Instructions for the participants

  • A themed music playlist

You Provide:​​

  • A location easily accessible by New York City public transit 

  • The specified number of guests (each mystery requires a set number)

Each mystery is designed for a specific number of people so that each guest plays an integral part of the mystery and has their own unique story arc. We currently have five mysteries to choose from:

How It Works

Step 1: Choose a Mystery

Step 2: Casting and Prep

Step 2: Casting and Prep

Step 3: Set Up

Step 4: Party Time

Step 5: Accuse a Murderer

The host fills out a quick survey to help us best cast each role. Then we send out a character list and individual character secrets so guests can come in costume and the murderer can prepare their lies.

On the night of the party, a Ghost Ship representative arrives and hides clues. They remain present as a minor character and guide the party by providing prompts to guests so the host doesn't have to worry about anything but solving the murder.

Over about 2 hours, guests gossip, lie, cheat, and steal to achieve their character's goals. Periodically, the rep hands out individualized prompts encouraging guests to find a clue or share a secret. 

The group votes for who they think the murderer is and the answer is revealed!
