Murder Mystery Dinner Colorado Springs 
By the Dinner Detective®

Antlers Hilton Colorado Springs

When you are visiting our area, one of the most enjoyable ways to spend the evening is with the Dinner Detective®, the popular murder mystery dinner that Colorado Springs is becoming famous for. This is not merely another dinner theater event but a captivating, interactive experience where you can enjoy a delicious meal while attempting to solve a fictitious murder. At the end of the night a prize is awarded to the guest who correctly identifies the killer. This show, which has won the award for Best Dinner Show in Denver and Los Angeles four years in a row, is now taking place right here at the Antlers Hilton Colorado Springs. Shows take place on Saturdays till August 29, 2015.


Because the actors in the murder mystery are hidden among the dinner guests, you have to figure out who is part of the show and who isn't. The make-believe murderer could be sitting right at your table! This gives the performance a more engaging and interactive quality than what you'd normally experience sitting in the audience at a typical show. The interactive and spontaneous nature of the event ensure that each night is unique.

When attending the murder mystery dinner theater, consider a stay at the Antlers Hilton Colorado Springs. We are conveniently located in downtown Colorado Springs and within walking distance to many restaurants, shops and nightclubs. Another perk of staying at with us is that you'll have great vantage points to take in views of the unforgettable Rocky Mountains and Pikes Peak.
