Frequently Asked Questions
Where does Ghost Ship operate out of? Will you come to my area?
Ghost Ship operates in New York City and we can go anywhere easily accessible by subway. If you aren't sure whether you qualify, or live slightly outside of the City, please feel free to shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll try our best to accommodate your needs.
Are the numbers of participants for each mystery flexible?
Every character is integral, so each Mystery can only be done with the number of people it is written for. However, we are currently working to make our stories slightly more flexible with the number of guests, so don't hesitate to reach out to us and we'll work with you to come up with a solution.
I’m a broke artist (or student) and I simply can’t afford your prices.
We would love for everyone to experience our mysteries for themselves. Email us at email@example.com before you book with some kind of proof of the artist or student status of each participant who fits that category (a website link, business card, a valid student ID, etc.) and we’ll send you a discount for $10 off per student or artist.
Do the guests all need to know each other beforehand?
Not at all! If your guests aren’t friends at the beginning of the night, they certainly will be by the end.
What age groups are your Murder Mysteries appropriate for?
Our Mysteries are meant for mature audiences, but none of our content is overly obscene. If you have further questions about the content in any particular mystery, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Will outfits be provided?
We strongly encourage guests to dress up as their characters, but we do not provide any of the outfits.
I have questions about gender.
Since we’re working with genre tropes, most of our characters are written with specific genders. We kindly ask that the characters that are assigned genders be played as that gender, even if the person playing them does not identify as that gender (which is just fine by us), in order to maintain the integrity of the storytelling.
I went to one of your parties and know who the murderer is in that Mystery; do I have an unfair advantage in all of them?
Not at all. There are some repeated elements, but having done one Murder Mystery will not in any way give you an advantage in solving others since the personal interactions change drastically every time.
I have an idea for a Mystery I would LOVE to do, but you don’t offer it. Can you make it for me?
Maybe! We’d love to hear it! Email us your idea at email@example.com and we'll see what we can do.
