'Playa del Loco, Love Boat Style' Synopsis
Sunny Daze has done everything she can to keep her struggling travel agency afloat. Travel websites have lured away all but her most loyal customers. Without the customer volume she once boasted, she just can't compete with the online discounted prices.
Desperate to reclaim customers, Sunny promotes an exclusive cruise package traveling to Playa del Loco, an all inclusive beach resort in Mexico. Traveltown.com can't possibly cut into her sales because she made up the destination. There is no such beach!
Sunny sells out the voyage. However, it doesn't take long for the crew and passengers to realize that they're headed to a bogus destination. The crew is outraged; friends are hurt that Sunny tricked them too.
Right after the ship sets sail, a scream and a splash is heard. Sunny has been thrown overboard. It's up to the passengers to figure out who pushed her over the edge.
This is a fun, large group mystery where the murder is 'just a big misunderstanding'. The cruise ship theme accommodates parties from teens to college to corporate. Team building options are easily incorporated. A pool is helpful for the “scream and splash” scene, but not necessary.

For entertainment purposes, less serious. The purpose of these games is to have fun, solving a mystery is just a way of accomplishing that. These games put more emphasis on interesting characters and unusual relationships than the clues or motive. Some times the clues are down right ridiculous in these games, and that is half the fun.
This game requires some or all guests/cast members to read from a script. The script will reveal key elements of the mystery. Generally the script is used to provide a framework for dialogue and is not to required to be memorized and read word for word.
