My Husband and I made reservations for this attraction to celebrate our 5th anniversary and even though we spend over $150 for the night we thought it was worth it since it was an special occasion and considering we were going to have a train ride, show and dinner. let me start by saying that the food was delicious, the...

My husband and I went for our 11 yr anniversary. We had such a great time, and an excellent dinner. The servers were great and food was delicious. Only thing was at the end, the "who done it" didn't make any sense. So go against your gut feeling and choose the one that was least likely to do it and... More

We took our 12 and 16 year olds on the dinner murder mystery ride. We all enjoyed it. Our servers and the actors were fantastic. The prime rib was huge, cooked to temperature, and delicious. Our only critique is that it was a long event, longer than advertised. I believe this trip was advertised to be 3 1/2 hours. We... More

My husband and I are here on vacation and heard about this train ride/show. We decided to check it out. The food was delicious and the service was great. The waitresses worked hard and did a great job. The show was entertaining and interesting. Everyone was super friendly. I recommend going with a group. If it's just you and 1... More

Another fun visit, with guests, to the Murder Mystery Train. the food is excellent and the service is also excellent. the Murder Mystery is well played and changes frequently.... the train ride is comfortable and offers a great view when passing over the tresel bridge on the Caloosahatchee... all in all an entertaining evening.

We were looking for something different to do and decided to give this a try. We went to pre-book our tickets and finding the booking office was a bit of a mystery. We ended up at their head office but the gentleman was able to redirect us to the correct location, which is also where you board the train. We... More

This was our second time. Again, it was an enjoyable evening. The tables are set up for four, so Bob and I are joined by another couple. The first time, the others were "Meh". This time we enjoyed three hours in the company of Jack and John. It was almost as though we had known each other for quite a... More

I loved the act, the actors and actresses were great! The service was ok, but my drink was flat and we were charged for refills of soda and for a coffee but if you get Iced Tea you pay but refills are free. I do not like tea so I chose coke, which was flat, and the only way to... More

Took my parents 7/3/14 - had a wonderful time. Staff was so pleasant and friendly, the show and actors were excellent and the food outstanding. I have read some of the negative reviews and cant imagine where they came from and why. The train does not "rock" badly at all. It was a very smooth ride. Although no one in... More

soup good. Food good. Service ok. Not as great experience as expected. My aunt and I both agreed. She has been wanting to go for years. So we went. She laughed when we got in the car. She said "not as good as I thought it would be". Audience was not involved. Murder mystery? More like a very loud PLAY.... More
