Even though I have lived within a few miles of the Seminole Gulf Railway Murder Mystery Dinner Train for more than 11 years, I never took a ride on it before tonight. What great fun I have missed! On my ride this evening, the food was excellent and very reasonably priced. This most definitely is not "airline food." The Seminole... More

The good: Food was very good...Prime Rib and Salmon...rather amazing that this quality could be generated on a train. Service was OK but very rushed. The length of the trip was horrible. Cramped in an uncomfortable chair and the train rocked severely....motion sickness could be a real issue to some. The tracks are not Amtrack smooth. The Murder Mystery...The Great... More

My wife and I took the holiday tour where the train brings you to Punta Gorda for a tour of the holiday sites in the islands there around Punta Gorda. The service and support from staff were just great. The dinner was excellent and actually very comfortable sitting and dinning, the boat tours around the area was beautiful to look... More

My husband and I, a couple in our mid twenties, thought that this would be a fun and quirky experience for the 2 of us. We got to the train 30 minutes early as requested, and found our table. We were asked to sit side by side. We had no prior warning but figured out quickly that we would be... More

We had a wonderful time. The show, the staff and the food were all great! All the people on board seemed to be having a great time. At the end of the night our shuttle did not show up to pick us up. Everyone had left and the staff went out of their way and was so kind to make... More

We were aboard the Halloween Costume Party Train, "Trained for Deception." Such a fun event, the actors were wonderful and the 5 course meal was amazing. The quality and attention to detail by the actors was impressive, as was the food and the waiter service. We took our 8 year old daughter and she really got into the Whodunit aspect... More

My husband and I had so much fun! The food was great and the actors were always in character. We really loved Lew Phillips!! We sat at a table with strangers at first, but they became our friends in the end! Everyone is there to have a good time, so even if you are a couple and have to sit... More

What a fun and memorable time with family while enjoying great food! I celebrated my 22nd birthday on the train with family and was extremely impressed. There was a cheese and fruit plate waiting for us when we sat down to munch on while waiting for our drink orders to be taken. The anticipation built for the show which began... More

As most of the other reviews said we too enjoyed the show and the food. We went with a group of friends which made it that much better. The show was fun and they allowed the audience to make jabs too. There is a prize for each railcar winner to guess who did the murder including the clues that lead... More

What a great ride with great food and a super show ! Shared my 51st birthday with my in-laws and had a great time. First time on a dinner train with a show and will not be the last. The crew was great and the show was awesome. Will come back for sure !! Thanks for a job well done.
