The year is 1899. Buffalo’s booming waterfront is seized in the grips of a violent labor strike pitting Irish grain scoopers against their bosses. You are joining the Buffalo community gathering for a labor meeting at a grain elevator in the heart of the dispute.
After interacting with the real life characters in this murder mystery you’ll enjoy a wonderful buffet dinner at RiverWorks. But don’t get too comfortable! Murders afoot and we need your help in solving this grisly grain mill murder mystery.
Following dinner you’ll walk to the grain silo, the scene of the crime! Look for clues, listen to interrogations, interview suspects and try to outwit the annoying lead detective.
After you’ve collected your clues, you’ll return to RiverWorks once again and discover "who done it". Expect a fun challenge to determine the team that wins the final prize after correctly identifying the killer.
