A really nice evening outing!

This was our first try at a train dinner mystery experience. Hey let's face it, you tell me where you can do all three at a fairly reasonable price? The large parking lot was... read more

Have to first say the actors were good, I feel bad because they didn't have anything good to work with. The older lady that booked our group was at best not pleasant, she was short and down right rude at times. Is it that hard to be nice. Just a few things you need to know so you can decide... More

My husband took me on this adventure two nights ago..It is a bit pricey, but when you consider the prime rib 5 course meal, the train ride and the show, its more reasonable! The only draw back is you pay for all drinks, whether its ice tea or Merlot. Water is free. The show was super fun and made for... More

Drove over from the East Coast/Palm City just to go. Went for my wife's birthday. Didn't know what to expect but read some of the reviews prior to booking. Very easy to find and the staff was more than polite. Appears everyone got the prime rib which was very good. The train is a little older but was comfortable. Our... More

It seems a bit pricey but you get a train ride, a play, and a meal. It's a great combination. My wife thoroughly enjoyed the salmon. I had the prime rib. And Wow! That prime rib was as large and good as anywhere. The murder mystery was very well performed though nobody at our table of 4 correctly guessed the... More

By the time we could make NYE plans, our options were limited. We booked this attraction at the last minute, so did not have time to get a good feel for what we were venturing into. Being New Year's Eve, the prices were about 20% higher than normal, but not for sure the extras (a champagne toast and a few... More

The food was ok. I can't say is was awful..just ok. The Scrooges Murder was fun. Cost a bit too high.

I have to say this was something we have wanted to do for some time. First finding it was a bit of a challenge. On Google Maps it appears to be on the south side of the street but in fact it was on the North side. Really don't see the sign until you're past it. Boarding was easy and... More
