Usually, December rings with the jingle bell cheer of the festive season. But before the year ends, it will take a killer turn as a deadly Murder Mystery experience arrives in Dubai. A host of dates throughout December are available.
As part of this immersive experience, the Al Seef Heritage Hotel Hilton Dubai will portal you back to 1900s Arabia as it transforms into Bait Al Zumurrud – The Emerald House, an abandoned manor that harbours deadly secrets and is the proverbial scene of the crime.
It’s the year 1910 and fearless adventurer Professor Hawthorne ventures into the deserted house to track down a rare artefact. Local legend cautions against entering this mysterious mansion, but a man of logic and reason, the Professor pooh-poohs it and proceeds with his treasure hunt. The hunter soon becomes the hunted: the Professor’s quest leads to a gnarly end as he winds up dead. His wife’s body is discovered as well, brutally slashed. Yikes!
With no straight answers about whodunit, the Professor’s former students and colleagues have to solve the puzzle of this double-murder and unearth the secrets of this eerie house of horrors. And that’s where your amateur sleuthing skills come in: you’ll be tasked with the important job of assisting the Professor’s academic friends and family to crack the crime.
During this interactive two-hour free roaming experience, you’ll scan every inch of the Al Seef Heritage Hotel looking for clues, and interrogating suspects, all while ensuring the wily culprit(s) don’t throw you off their scent. Your investigation will uncover hidden motives, and hysteria and allow you to dig deep into dark truths about the cast of suspects as well as yourself! There are more shocking twists and turns than a winding mountain road, so you’ll be kept on your toes throughout.
Round up your gang or even give this experience a solo stab if you’re short of mystery-solving friends; Murder Mystery: The Emerald House marries the vibes of an Indiana Jones setting and the thrills of an Agatha Christie mystery making it one you don’t want to miss. As you peer around looking for evidence, recharge your mind with some refreshing snacks and drinks that are part of the experience.
