Orlando Dinner Shows – Sleuths

When it comes to getting away from the traditional food options when going out, you most often have to dig deep to find something unique. Most often people end up going with the traditional options, most of which are not very entertaining. Some might be filling, sure, but what about the entertainment quotient? For those that are looking for something a little different, something that will help create an impressive change of pace, there are a variety of options to select from. It starts by searching for Orlando dinner shows and looking at the available options. One of the unique options today, for example, is Sleuths.

Sleuths Mystery Dinner shows are impressive in that they offer a full meal that plays out with a murder mystery the likes of which you’ve never seen before. You’ll be astounded by how things work out and the detective roles include a great deal of traditional showmanship. You’ll feel like you’re in a detective novel with so many different components working together to figure out who is the culprit and why. As you enjoy your meal you will laugh, think, and be amazed at the drama that unfolds.

The whole show acts like a stage play, but it’s readily seen from every table, with some audience members getting involved as red herrings amidst someone who is definitely guilty. This showcase of mystery and astonishment is something that is worth checking out for family members of all ages. You’ll find the price is favorable, the meal options are grand, and best of all, the entertainment is all included in the price of your meal. Even the hardest critic to please in your family will be laughing with joyous and raucous praise for this show of epic proportions.

For those that want something a little bit different, and not quite like Sleuths, finding Orlando dinner shows is simple. One great choice you might want to explore as an alternative is Capone’s Dinner & Show. This restaurant and showcase will invite you to a time where speakeasy taverns, mobsters and classy dames ruled the streets. You’ll meet a cast of characters that made the prohibition era so colorful at times. This family-friendly showcase is done up with costumes and a lot of great moments that will make everyone enjoy dinner a little more than usual.

The next time you’re not sure what to cook for dinner, why not venture forward to an Orlando dinner show that will have you enjoying the finer things in life a little bit easier.

Spotlight: Sleuths Mystery Dinner Shows

Sleuths Mystery Dinner Shows

Although we’d rather have visitors choose Capone’s Dinner Show over any other dinner theater, many guests attend multiple shows during their vacation. Therefore, we’d like to provide our ‘review’ of the other shows in the area. In this post we spotlight Sleuths Mystery Dinner Shows. We’ll give you our favorable comments – as well as some insight as to why Capone’s may be your better choice – if you’re only attending one dinner show.


Read our review…

This is one of my favorite dinner shows, because the cast makes this show. Another area Sleuths Mystery Dinner Shows delivers is in audience interaction. The popularity of murder mystery shows is another thing in their favor.

If you are expecting ‘above average’ dinner show food then you will be disappointed with Sleuths. Dinner shows in general have a hard time providing quality meals, because they have to cook and hold it; then get plated, and by the time it gets to you, it’s dry and not hot.

Sleuths Mystery Dinner Shows Variety

Sleuths Mystery Dinner Shows features large numbers of shows, 13 to choose from!  Typically, they have a cast of anywhere between three to five actors. The cast can take the worst of the shows and deliver a home run. Doug Bowser works there, and in my estimation, is the best comedic actor I have personally ever met. Try and book a show when Doug is there. I have been to Sleuths when the cast wasn’t strong, neither at ad libbing nor with audience participation. That evening they pretty much stuck to the script, and the show, personally, bored me.

Sleuths is considered one of the best shows in Orlando – if you enjoy murder mysteries, prizes for solving the mystery and a mostly funny cast that makes this show work so well.    Visit www.sleuths.com to find out more.

Some reasons why you may want to choose Capone’s instead:

  • It takes forever to be seated, first you are in a large room, packed in with 200 other people before you are moved (like cattle or a Disney attraction)
  • Food is not great or necessarily hot (Capone’s serves buffet-style so food stays hot)
  • 8-10 people sitting to a table; many times hard to see and you may be sitting at a table with people you don’t know
  • Limited choice of beer and wine (only bud, bud light, red or white wine of unknown brand)
  • Hard to find, off the street at the back of a strip mall
  • Box office hard to find, tucked away in the gift shop
  • No necessarily appropriate for young children, especially those that may have trouble sitting at a table for 3 hours
  • Prime Rib is additional charge, $3 upgrade

Saturday January 9th and the Weather is Frightful Today, Here’s some Ideas on how to Enjoy Your Day

If you’re in Orlando now on vacation you know that the weather is HORRIBLE we might actually get sleet or snow flurries. The unprecedented cold all over the country is some of the worst weather I have seen in my thirty five years of living in Orlando. This is only the third time the weather report has called for snow in my thirty five years here.

So what should a tourist who’s in Orlando right now do today? Theme parks and water parks are definitly not a good choice for today. The Orlando area luckily has many indoor options on ways to spend your day and night. Todays a great day to sleep in and get a later start I promise you the theme parks will be slow. If you can handle this weather though you’ll breeze through attraction lines.

Here are some alternative ideas if you don’t want to brave the cold, sleet and possibly even snow today. Obvious choices include indoor malls which the best two for tourists are Florida Mall and Millenia Mall. All the outlet malls are outdoors so that may not be such a good choice. Depending on if you have children and the ages of your children indoor things to do include bounce houses, indoor attractions such as Ripley’s Believe it or not,Wonderworks, indoor flea markets of which there are many(largest is Flea World in Sanford and it offers circus acts and is more of a real flea market then the ones in the tourist corridors), Wonder Works and Titanic the exhibition.

Great eveving options include dinner shows of which there are numerous ones in Orlando including Medieval Times, Arabian Nights, Sleuths, Pirates Dinner Adventure and Capone’s Dinner & Show. I’ve listed the most popular and indoor of the dinner shows. It’s a great way to spend an evening and depending upon which you pick can be fun for all ages. We at Capone’s Dinner & Show feel we meet that criterion the best. I advise getting on the phone soon because on days like today the dinner show option is popular and if you want reservations and good seats call early.
