Everything was enjoyable the entire evening. Food and entertainment were wonderful. The low point was when we ended our evening and had to depart into a severe thunderstorm. The employees forced everyone off the train into a torrential downpour with heavy lightening. There were several handicapped people on the train and we all had to run down a wet ramp.... More

This was a colossal waste of money! 4 hours trapped on a train that goes through the worst parts of Ft. Myers and waiting and waiting on any smidgin of food or drink was not an experience I want to have again. Two servers for the whole train! Then the performers ran from car to car yelling at each other... More

The food and the actors are awesome. We never tire of this and go about every 6 to 8 months. Everyone we have recommended this adventure too has also had an awesome time.

We chose the Murder Mystery Dinner Train for the 3rd time and enjoyed it as we had previously. The play is unique in its presentation, and the dinner--prepared on the train--was very good. Seating is at tables for four, and the food consists of hors d'ouvres, a delicious soup, choice of salad, one of 3 entrées, and dessert (which was... More

We took my mom in law out for her birthday. Our sister in law had recommended The murder mystery train after having experienced it herself. She was on the money. The food was great, we all had the prime rib which was cooked to the exact temperature we ordered. (It's so nice we the chef knows the difference between rare,... More

It was a fun experience. Food was good and enjoyed the show. Loved the actual train ride, can be bumpy so make sure if you aren't good with motion sickness to take something. The tips were not included and neither were beverages. Ended up paying an extra 40 on top of the 150 already paid for 2 people.

Went on a Sunday night with my husband and 20 yr old daughter who is home from college for the summer. We had a ball. This really brings you back to experience the olden days (so don't go thinking it's one of those new super-duper rides at Disney- it isn't) which is sad that some of the negative comments from...

Nothing about this was spectacular in any way. This is probably really fun for children, but being 20 it was extremely easy to guess the culprit, and the acting was a little too cheesy for my taste. The food was just alright, nothing was truly spectacular, though the key lime pie was good. Service was ok, but my boyfriend went... More
