The Murder Mystery was lots of fun and we compliment the actors and actresses on being able to maneuver between cars on the train and repeat their parts 4 or 5 times....wow! It was a fun show (pay close attention to get the clues!) and the food was very good also.

Had out of town guests and thought this would be a fun outing. To be fair, I must say that the Fod was outstanding, if served a litle eraticaly in terms of timing and duration. The entertainment was tolerable. But the actual route the train takes to / form is uninspiring. For the most part, you se blighted neighborhods, industrial... More

My husband and I finally decided to check out the mystery train. Upon boarding, our two severs greeted us warmly and were very helpful and cordial throughout the trip. We had choices for each course of our meal except dessert, and it was good. The "play" was okay, and while we enjoyed it, some would not. It is a bit... More

Our group of 5 gals booked a spot on the train for a Wednesday night in March. Having been stuck in traffic, we couldn't make it on time, so they rebooked us for Thursday at no charge. We were expecting this train to be a good time with decent food, but it far exceeded our expectations! The food was all... More

I booked the train ride for my husband's birthday. I wanted to do anything other than the traditional dinner and movie. We were lucky enough to get a table to ourselves, the tables seat 4, so if you're a couple you might have to sit with another couple, but lucky for us we didn't have to. You are seated too... More

The food, drinks and entertainment were very very good. Only complaint would have to be the bathrooms, had to wait in line to use.

We had driven by this many times and decided it would be the perfect way to say thank you to my parents for all of their help. We were not disappointed. The train arrived right on time and we boarded with no problems. We sat down and had the crackers, fruit and cheese plate waiting for us - all of... More

This was a disappointment. The price was rather high, the play was not enjoyable. The play took place over all the cars and it was done in segments and the storyline very weak. Food was OK. Nothing stellar. For the price I would not go back again,

We shared the table with a young couple (we are 65) to put it in perspective. The entertainment was "so-so". Actors forgot their lines. The story was hard to follow because they were injecting too much humor. The food was restaurant quality. I had prime rib which was cooked just right. My wife had salmon which also was good. Our...

We went to celebrate a birthday and it was a fun time. You board the train and if you're a party of two you essentially get paired with another party of two (I was excited about meeting another couple) but our partners didnt show. The acting/mystery part was entertaining. Silly and funny acting but we laughed the whole time. The... More
