Summary: The Ambrosia Hotel is a Valley Falls historical landmark and the scene of an unsolved murder from the 1930’s. Local millionaire Harlan McAllister has purchased the hotel and spent the past 6 months restoring it. A week before the Grand Reopening he has invited a series of well-known Valley Falls personalities who all have historical ties to the hotel including famed mystery author Rosemary Clark (last seen in The Dark and Stormy Night). The night’s events are proceeding as planned until one of the guests, Sinclair LeCompt, doesn’t show up for dinner. After checking his room, they find that LeCompt’s door is chained from the inside. Once the chain is cut and access to the room is gained, LeCompt’s body is found. He has been stabbed through the heart. But how is such a thing possible? The only one of the guests with an airtight alibi is Rosemary Clark. After the Will Street Detective Agency is brought in to help with the case, they enlist her assistance with this locked-room mystery. Can you help Rosemary Clark and The Will Street Detective Agency solve the mystery of The Old and Hidden Secret?

Society Reviews

WOW! Simply wow! We LOVED this. What an awesome date night game! Perfectly put together, lasted a couple of hours. We were NEVER bored and guessing until the very end. We ordered Sanitarium as a trial and we are for sure going to be monthly subscribers! Thanks for the fun!

You will love it!

I love these boxes. I tried it because I was not liking hunt a killer or empty faces. I started with one box at the start of June. I now have bought 6 boxes and became a monthly subscriber. I have also had quick feedback on any questions that I have had. I like that there are hint files and solution files in case you need a push in the right direction. I would give this company a try. I have loved all the boxes I have tried so far.

Wonderful Mystery Experience

I’ve done many of these boxes and from my past experiences I have two favorites: this is one of them. It’s so immersive, so unique and intriguing. Real websites, Facebook pages, emails, phone numbers. It’s great. I love it so so much. Took us like five hours to complete. It was so great. The puzzles are perfectly puzzling. The information is so detailed. OMG it’s the best.

Should you buy? YES YES YES

I absolutely love these boxes! Each month is a new mystery and it’s very escape room like but you actually get more of a storyline as you go through! Can’t wait til next month!
