Weekend details

Step into a world of twisted enchantment like never before at the inaugural Carnival of Curiosities! This autumn, amidst the crimson and golden leaves, an eerie carnival has pitched its tents in town. The air is thick with excitement and the scent of popcorn, but beneath the vibrant surface lies a sinister mystery waiting to be unraveled.
Imagine yourself surrounded by flickering lights, where laughter mingles with distant whispers. The Carnival of Curiosities beckons with mind-bending games, dark carousels, and enigmatic sideshows. Against the backdrop of falling leaves and cool breezes, it blurs the line between the living and the dead.
Your adventure begins as you step into this world of mystery and enchantment. But beware, for as the sun sets, the carnival takes on an even more sinister aura. Secrets, riddles, and treacherous characters lurk in the shadows, and it’s up to you to unravel the web of deceit. Will you dare to uncover the truth at the Carnival of Curiosities? Join us if you dare…
The weekend kicks off with an outdoor fall festival, where you’ll be immersed in a carnival midway filled with carnival games, caramel apples, sideshows, and carnival food. But, amidst the fun and festivities, be on the lookout for peculiar characters, each hiding their own secrets, and the ominous mysteries that lurk behind every twisted ride.
Aside from the murder mystery, you will have plenty of downtime to enjoy the amenities Lakewood Lodge has to offer. Think nature hikes, campfires, board games, fishing, and bird watching.
You will receive email updates that detail everything to expect as well as coordinating character assignments. Below is a sample timeline to give you an idea of what to expect throughout the weekend.

FRIDAY

Evening
Check-in at the Lodge and dive into your welcome basket full of goodies that will help you navigate the weekend. After exploring your base camp a bit, head over to the midway for a bit of carnival games, food, and fun before the real shenanigans begin. The first round of gameplay will take place late Friday evening after everyone has had a chance to settle in. We guarantee you will become fast friends with the people you meet by the end of Friday night. Retire to the peace and quiet at your cabin for the night and enjoy some cozy time around the fire.

SATURDAY

Morning/Afternoon
Enjoy a relaxing morning and sleep as late as you like. The morning and afternoon are yours to do as you please with your cabin mates. This is your time to take advantage of some of the resort amenities, such as boat rental and trail walking. Don’t forget to bring your fishing gear! Play yard games, sit by the fire, or hunt for clues (this is a murder mystery after all). A scavenger hunt and an escape room experience will be offered during this time that are both self-paced for your convenience.

Early evening
You and your team can head back to the lodge to meet up with all the other guests for the second round of gameplay. It’s time to piece together everything we’ve learned and interrogate one another for the answers we crave.

Sunday

Morning
After a wild and enchanting weekend, we’ll all meet up at the lodge for the last time to turn in your evidence and discover who the guilty party is.
There will be plenty of activities to participate in throughout the weekend, or you can go off on your own adventures. Optional activities include:
  • Carnival midway with sideshows, games, snacks, and hot drinks
  • Team-based contest
  • Campfires outside your cabins
  • Murder mystery bingo
  • Board games available at the lodge
  • Scavenger hunt for more mystery clues
