We have done this adventure before, and it never disappoints. 5 course dinner which is amazing! Our prime rib was cooked to perfection. The show is a little hookie, but fun. These actors are performing the same show in 4 different train cars. It is a lot of fun. Tables are in groups of 4, so if your party is... More

Came to Florida to visit mom 1-21-15, saw add for Murder Mystery Dinner Train and thought we would give it a shot. The ride was rocky if you get motion sick you may need to take a motion sickness pill. The acting was very good considering they had to act in the aisle of the train. The cost was $73... More

Went on Sunday, Jan 11, 2015, Remembering my favorite part of riding the train as a child was eating in the dining car, that was attraction enough. The food was good; the portions were generous, and the mystery play was delightful. Had been wanting to go for a long time and we were not disappointed. Recommend this attraction to anyone... More

Fun evening for train lovers and mystery lovers. A good menu and very nice staff. This was my first train mystery and it was fun. I'd go again.

What a wonderful experience! We were staying in the Punta Gorda, Fla area with our friends who booked the trip. The train car was a renovated one from the 1920-30s era - seating was at tables for four. The "play" was very well acted by professional actors; the ride was fun - it started at 8:00pm and ended at 12:30am;... More

Have enjoyed and shared this with friend numerous times. We drove over from the East Coast of Florida. This trip, Wed the 7th of Jan 2015 was terrific. Brought 6 friends who had never been on the Murder Mystery Train. Everything was superb. The 4 course dinner was great, but the play was the star! Always get the full package... More
