We went to the dinner train in August 2014. We expected a nice show, but we were surprised at how good the dinner was. It's a 3 1/2 hour ride and they do a real nice presentation. The station is a little difficult to find, we used GPS, but it was well worth it. Seating is limited, so you need... More

We were a group of 6 and you are seated at train tables of 4. Luckily, we made friends with the other two folks at our table. Dinner presentation is lovely. Appys of cheese, fruit and crackers ready upon arrival. We were in the last car, furthest from the kitchen and the bar car and because the show takes place... More

Was a bit dangerous coming from Sanibel, and making a turn into parking area, against cross traffic. Signs getting to parking area was not correctly put up, making you turn around again. Otherwise play was enjoyable, trains were beautiful, food was okay. My chicken was a bit undercooked.

Have taken this trip a few times and always enjoy the mad cap fun and antics of the actors. Where else can you get dinner and a show on a moving train. We always ask ourselves why we waited so long in between to do this again. The food is good and the service staff tries to time it all... More

This was a fun experience. The food was excellent. The service was great. The "mystery" was a little hokey, but lots of laughs and lots of fun. It's a different kind of evening and well worth the price.

I thoroughly enjoyed this experience. The food was first class, and delivered by the actors. Didn't realize the Murder Mystery is a comedic one, but enjoyed it anyway. A bit pricey, but once the train departs, it's about 2+ hours of non stop food, drink and fun. It's dinner theater on. A moving train. Log, love, love it!!!

Cute story acted out by cast of 6, but not as intriguing as Murder She Wrote. Food was fresh and very good. Be aware that drinks (other than water) are NOT included in your fare. Pricing for drinks are moderate, so prepare to spend an extra $10 - 20 per person for anything other than Ice Tea (only $2 with... More

My husband and I went for our 11 yr anniversary. We had such a great time, and an excellent dinner. The servers were great and food was delicious. Only thing was at the end, the "who done it" didn't make any sense. So go against your gut feeling and choose the one that was least likely to do it and... More

We took our 12 and 16 year olds on the dinner murder mystery ride. We all enjoyed it. Our servers and the actors were fantastic. The prime rib was huge, cooked to temperature, and delicious. Our only critique is that it was a long event, longer than advertised. I believe this trip was advertised to be 3 1/2 hours. We... More
