Personalized Kids Mystery Party            

A Special Outdoor Mystery Party

5 girls and 5 boys are suspects - up to 30 can play!

Many, many years ago, when the town of Buccaneer Valley was just a tiny settlement, a band of pirates and thieves pulled off the most daring theft of its time. The men got away with a fortune in jewels. With the enraged citizens hot on their trail, they had no choice but to split up. Arguments quickly started. What would they do with the loot? When would they each get their shares? The leader of the group, a dangerous man named Dylan Quint, decided to bury it. Everyone agreed to meet five years later to dig it up and divide it. Legend says that Quint had strange powers and was able to place a frightening monster nearby to guard the spot until they were back together again. Yet, no one ever returned. The Quint treasure is rumored to be buried somewhere still in the woods near Buccaneer Valley - and the monster is keeping watch over it even today.

Everyone in town knows this story and dreams of finding the treasure. The woods where it is supposedly hidden is now a nature reserve, Buccaneer Park - and a local tradition has sprung up. Every six months, school teachers run a treasure hunt there as classes compete for the chance to work together to find the buried jewels. Teachers organize the event as a learning experience and each selected class is given a trail to follow around the park. The students are asked questions and, if they’re able to answer them correctly, are led to a secret location where a "treasure" is found. It's always a lot of fun - and a great history lesson.

But today something has gone wrong. The school’s minivan arrived at 11 o'clock, and the students anxiously went into the park to follow the trail. Then, at 2:30, Mr. Save, the teacher, and Miss Fance, his teaching assistant, heard a loud, blood-curdling scream. Within minutes, they were surrounded by the students telling tales of treasure and of a strange creature in the woods.

It was quickly decided that the class should report what happened to the park rangers and leave. But - it looks like someone (or someTHING) wants the class to stay in  the park. The keys to the minivan are missing! Nobody knows what happened to them. Cell phones don’t work in the woods and the rangers can’t be contacted. Since no one else is around, the minivan is the only way for he class to escape what could be a bad situation. The only hope seems to be to unravel the events of the afternoon.

What was the scream that caused everyone to shiver? And, what’s happening in the deep, dark woods of Buccaneer Park? Is Quint’s monster still guarding the buried treasure? Or, is there more to the story? Only sound detective work will unravel what’s going on!
