Suspects Murder Mystery Theater Dinner on the Delta King

  • Delta King Hotel 1000 Front Street Sacramento, CA USA (map)

Make it a weekend getaway in Old Sacramento!

It's twilight and the gas lights cast strange shadows onboard the great old Mississippi showboat traveling down from Memphis. You are on the Delta King having a gin and tonic watching the sky darken as the moon rises...

Join the well-dressed ladies and gentlemen as they gather for dinner, but don’t forget this isn’t just any dinner - as you soon will see. It is a murder mystery dinner on the historic Delta King Riverboat Hotel in Old Town Sacramento on Saturday night, October 20, at 7:30PM.

Known as the “Suspects Dinner Theatre,” there is a mystery to solve while enjoying the ambiance, company, and good food. But who are your dinner companions? As the live theatre action takes place all around you, can you be sure someone at your table isn’t a suspect? Try to solve the mystery before anyone else.

Come just for the evening on the Delta King or arrive early Saturday to Old Town and stay overnight. Plan your own itinerary around the evening dinner theatre or coordinate your plans with your deco pals - there is an array of things to see and do on Saturday and Sunday in Old Town all within walking distance. Perhaps take the train from the Bay Area, spend the night aboard the Delta King after Saturday’s dinner and awaken relaxed and refreshed ready to explore the sights of Old Town on Sunday. Here is what you need to know to plan your custom excursion:

Make your Suspects Dinner Theatre reservations online (look for our designated Art Deco Group) or by calling (916) 443-3600.

Book your Delta King hotel room separately from the dinner (overnight stay includes breakfast the next morning).
