Murder Mystery Cruise

Join It's a Mystery, the Northwest's premiere interactive mystery theater company and the historic Steamship Virginia V for a full moon celebration and 'mind bending' adventure aboard the High Seas, with a Murder Mystery Dinner Cruise around Lake Union and Lake Washington.

Do you ever wonder what your future holds? Be careful what you wish for as you join recent lottery winner & millionaire Eddie Norman and his world famous personal psychic, Moonshadow! They have rented out the Steamship for a treasure seeking junket and they are looking for adventurous fellow treasure seekers (aka pirates), investors and perhaps even people who have their own psychic abilities! Moonshadow claims she and the Virginia V are bonded on an astral plane. She has also promised Eddie some inside info from the ghosts who haunt the ship. It is a FULL MOON - so her psychic powers are at their PEAK!

Watch out, because underneath the psychic readings & ghost sightings, you might find yourself involved in a murder investigation! Be prepared for an evening of interactive comedy, murder, mayhem and crime solving. You can even accuse your friends & family of nefarious crimes by setting them up as suspects in the mystery. We predict you will be in for an 'out of body' experience!

About the S.S. Virginia V: The steamship was built on a beach near Vashon Island in 1922. She is powered by the original 1898 reciprocating steam engine manufactured in Seattle. After completing a recent $6.5 million restoration, the Virginia V is in like-new condition with gleaming varnish and her traditional gloss white exterior. The ship is now the last operational example of her style of steamship left in the entire United States. Since 1980 she has been owned by The Steamer Virginia V Foundation, a non-profit historic organization.

(Its A Mystery is the interactive mystery theater company that was formerly aboard the Spirit of Washington Dinner Train for over 10 years!)

Beach or pirate themed costumes are welcome but not required!
