ROANOKE, Va. – You can still find ways to jump into mystery even while you’re at home.
The popular Roanoke-based murder-mystery event business is capitalizing on this virtual climate.
Sabrina East, who owns Jump Into Mystery, said she’s used to host four events each month for either private team-building or public entertainment.
However, at the beginning of March, she had to cancel eight in-person events due to the coronavirus.
That’s when a local church group reached out to see if she would do a virtual ladies night with them.
The success of that event helped her pivot to her current business model.
Now, she offers murder mystery events through Zoom.
Each participant is emailed their character in advance and then role-play their part over Zoom.
