Casino tables – Blackjack and roulette tables are included in the ticket price and are a great way to compete against your colleagues. The “gambling” is only for fun, with paper money and casino chips provided.

Photo booth  – Your ticket price includes unlimited trips to the photo booth. Each visit includes double prints for guests to take home as a souvenir.

Glitter face painters – The perfect addition to the glitz and glam of a secret agent night. Our face painters will be open after dinner with their sophisticated, sparkly designs. Glitter beard anyone?
