Cypress Bend Resort adds an interactive twist to spooky seasonal thrills with a murder-mystery Halloween party, held in the resort’s grand ballroom. Starting at 9 p.m., guests mingle at the spirited reception before attempting to solve a puzzling crime, either through extensive questioning or tickling. Complimentary hors d’oeuvres, light refreshments, and a cash bar keep temporary detectives alert and from shriveling up like a grape on Mars. In hopes of maintaining the event’s celebratory vibes, the resort encourages—but does not require—all attendees to don a costume for the evening. After cracking the case and apprehending the culprit with handcuffs made from various fake mustaches, guests retire to the hotel, where a room stocked with two queen beds and complimentary high-speed Internet provides homey comforts for a good night’s rest. Most rooms volunteer scenic views of the resort’s amenities, including a golf-course fairway and wooded terrain.
