What fun!! My sister and I wanted to treat my dad, who is a train buff, to a fun evening that would include the ride provided by this train. The dinner and show were added perks. Absolutely fabulous meal. The train is right on schedule and the ride was 3 hours long. Crackers, cheese and fruit were on the table... More

Went with my son and mom for a fun end of summer trip since my son loves trains. It's a LONG drive from the Tampa Bay area. When you first step into the train, all the tables are set with white linens and a large plate of crackers, cheese and fruit. Very nice start. The servers are great - I... More

The train ride and show was an okay experience. The actors were great, but the food was just okay not as good of quality as you would expect for a $79 ticket. The tables only had three pens for four people so it made it not as fun to play along and write your clues down. It's a once in... More

Well worth it. We drove over from Fort Lauderdale so we did the Internet special and stayed at Marriott.

We have heard about this train ride for years and finally decided to pick up a special package that was offered on the Internet. It provides a night at the Courtyard Marriott along with tickets for the Mystery Train which is less than a quarter mile away from the hotel. Parking is ample for both the hotel and the train...

We've seen ads about this for years & always thought it might be fun, and it was. We read all the reviews, some good, some bad, but they do give you a reasonable picture.

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
