We have taken the trip to Adams Mystery 3 times now. The entire family had a great time. The actors are great and the food is very good. The show was very funny. I cannot remember laughing as hard as I did at the show. I cannot say how good this company does in entertaining our family. We attempted to... More

We had a great time. There was great interaction with the actors both before and during the show. Great audience participation opportunities-even got me up to dance which I avoid like the plague. It is a reaalg fun local business. The actors and owners are local. I was surprised with how many repeat guests were at the show (maybe 40%).... More

We had one 9 year old who was so excited about this, two adults who thought it would be a fun time and a very apprehensive 16 year old. By the end of the night we had four people who had a great time and laughed about the show the rest of our trip! They took such great care of... More

The child theater is in the basement and there is no food service, although you can have a party there or bring your own food/snack, show lasts about an hour and a half, price is reasonable. The show itself is pretty good, ages... More

My teenage boys loved solving the mystery. The actors interacted with the crowd. The dinner was very good and dessert too. My boys said they would go back in a heartbeat.. Even his buddy said he would go again... My oldest is 18 and my youngest is 13.

Had a good time, the show was funny and fast paced. The cast did a great job of pulling the audience in. The food was not terrible but could be improved. Go there if you like to laugh and get involved in the show, you won't be disappointed.

Adams Mystery Playhouse was easily one of the best experiences of my vacation. We were only going to be in Denver two days after our drive from South Dakota before heading home, and we stumbled upon the Playhouse by accident in our search for something to do. We were not disappointed! First off, the owners are incredibly friendly! They talked... More

This has got to be a staple of Denver! Think of a perfect mixture of a comedy club, a live play, a mystery show, a scavenger hunt, and finally a show that gets the entire show involved. EVERYONE IS A SUSPECT!!! Hands down a must do for those looking for SOMETHING DIFFERENT from the beaten path!

My husband and I went with my sister and her husband. They interacted with the audience and it was very fun! We enjoyed the show and would like to go back when we visit Colorado again. The owners and the actors were all very friendly.
