Although we like the train and the mystery, I would no recommend doing it on a Holiday. we waited along time just for water as we were one of the further back cars and then the serves had to wait while the performances were going on in our car. If you do decide to still try it for a holiday... More

The woman who organises this and stars in the productions is loud very loud and the worst actress I have ever seen. However the show is fun and the quiz puzzle in the dialogue is so bad we enjoyed it. We went on the thing three times over about four years and won the prize for solving the mystery each... More

My husband and I were visiting our home in Marco Island. I decided that I wanted to do something special for our anniversary. Instead of the normal dinner out, which is the yearly tradition for us. I surprised my hubby by just giving him directions, but not telling him where we were going! When we arrived he was pretty excited,... More

All of this activity on an old but well maintained traveling Hooterville type rail road (RR), with a live locomotive engineer in RR overalls Very nice window sights to see that... More

We went for my wife's cousin's birthday. I was expecting the worst. But they were very professional, the servers were amazing and on top of their game. The actors and Actresses were great. They were very into what they did and that made for a fun evening. The food was good, not the best cut of prime rib, but decent.... More

If you realize and understand that you are not going to a Broadway show and are not expecting a five star dinner then this experience should be enjoyable. The food, both quality and quantity, was much better than expected. Three different main courses were offered. We had a party of four so we were able to try all three. Everyone... More

I like taking train rides but I wish they had an old steam engine pulling the train not a diesel from the 70's.
