This year’s all-new edition of Jay Ghoul’s House of Curiosities is based on classic mystery stories. It’s 1922, and a group of archeologists has unearthed an Ancient Egyptian tomb – but they barely have time to celebrate their discovery before the diggers each start dropping dead! Your group has arrived at the dig site (Lyndhurst mansion) to help determine the cause of the deaths – is it the Pharaoh’s curse or a cold-blooded killer?
Sherlock Holmes (Tal Aviezer) and Dr. Watson (Mikel Von Brodbeck) are called to investigate the mysterious circumstances surrounding a baffling death, a menacing doctor with a menagerie of exotic animals, and a desperate client in need of help. Follow them on a trip through Victorian London (played by the inimitable Lyndhurst Mansion), on the trail of this classic mystery. Together with the famous detectives, we’ll move through the Carriage House and rooms on the first floor of the Mansion as we’re drawn deeper into the secrets of the case.
