Enthusiasts of all things scary and mysterious listen up.

It’s the Cold War. You’re in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. A Navy vessel is travelling treacherous waters from Darwin to Singapore. Radio silence is maintained at all costs. Suddenly an SOS drifts out across the airways. “All officers including the Captain are dead, dead in the chart room, dead on the bridge.” This is followed by an encrypted signal and then one final grisly message: “Now I die”. 

It's now 48 hours later. You join an elite Commando unit onboard the Navy Destroyer HMAS Vampire to investigate and solve this sinister “Mystery At Sea”. Who or what has killed the crew? Welcome to one of the scariest immersive “whodunit” mysteries you’ll ever get to solve.

Throughout this gem, you'll be deciphering cryptic SOS messages and cracking a series of clues to solve the mysterious string of murders while actually onboard a real navy destroyer. 

There are two 90-minute sessions per date (and this one will be running for four consecutive weeks) from 6pm – 7:30pm and 8pm – 9:30pm and you can grab your tickets right here.
