Yes, there's a castle in Kentucky, yes it's beautiful, and yes you can solve a murder over dinner.


A Bluegrass Castle

You can feel like Kentucky royalty when you visit The Kentucky Castle.  This castle looks like a scene plucked right out of a fairytale, or something you'd expect to see in another country.   However, this castle is located a short driving distance from the Tri-State as it's in Versailles, Kentucky.

The Kentucky Castle often hosts events like the Teatime with Princesses, Rooftop Yoga, and bourbon tastings.  You can also book The Kentucky Castle for your wedding, or just book a room and enjoy experiencing a castle for a night.  However, one event coming up sounds right up my alley! A murder mystery dinner, inside of an actual castle?!  Count me in!

Murder Mystery Dinner at The Kentucky Castle

As you can imagine, solving a murder mystery while dining in a castle, sounds like quite the immersive experience.  Throughout May The Kentucky Castle is hosting a few different Murder Mystery Dinner nights. Tickets are $85 per person to join and come with a four-course meal to enjoy.  You can't solve a murder on an empty stomach, you know.

Enjoy a delicious dinner in the Grand Ballroom at The Kentucky Castle. But don't get too comfy, because while you eat, our Murder Mystery Dinner Theater team "Murder & Merriment" will have you saying "whodunnit?!"

One lucky guest who solves the mystery will win a gift card to The Kentucky Castle!

Each date has a different theme and a new murder to solve.
