What a fun night. The show (Murder Mystery- The Great Gotsby) was hilarious. The characters were professional and really involved the audience. They were hoot. The big surprise was the gourmet dinner. 5 star dinner on the train. Dinner started with a cheese platter for the table to share followed by fabulous potato leek soup and a nice salad with... More

We have been talking about going to this attraction for years and finally had an opportunity to do so. The train left on time and the actors made their best effort to put on a good show. However, the cars are showing their age and the ride was not as enjoyable as we would have hoped. We were seated with... More

This was our third and will be the last visit to the murder mystery dinner train. The food and entertainment quality has plummeted. The wilted salad and chocolate sheet cake were inedible. The prime rib, caked in pepper, was unpalatable. If you want tea or coffee, $2 per person is add to the bill along with a suggested $8 per... More

We came here with a group about 24 from our RV park to ride this dinner train and be entertained by some actors putting on a murder mystery. The train trip part was not too bad except for the rocking back and forth of the cars. If you have problems with vertigo then I would not recommend doing this event.... More

Two couples enjoyed a fabulously surprising and delicious Saturday evening on the murder mystery train! We did not anticipate having a real gourmet dinner, but when the parmesan cheese soup was served we knew we were in for a real treat with the rest of the meal as well! Although I don't expect any of the actors to get an... More

We had been looking forward to this excursion since booking it over a week ago. Everyone involved from the ticket desk to the servers, the actors and train engineer were cheerful and made you fell welcome aboard. The Mystery was "A Slim Chance of Murder" and the ambiance of the dining car, all made for a realistic performance. Seated at... More

We have previously visited the gulf train ride, once on a murder mystery evening ride and for a previous thanksgiving lunch. The train ride itself was interesting and the views very pretty. The...

Have seen adds for this attraction, but had never been, until we went with out-of-town guests. The smooth train ride included a full cash bar and a delicious five course dinner. Awaiting us at our assigned table was a large fruit/cheese/cracker tray, more than enought for four people. The rest of the meal included soup, salad, and choice of entree.... More
