This was our second visit to the Murder Mystery Train. We liked it so much last year, that when my husband asked what I wanted for my birthday, I told him to go back on the train! Always a blast! The food is fantastic and the shows are so much fun! You will not be disappointed! Go check it out.... More

Since we live within an hour of the train we often go there with out-of-town guests. The food may not be gourmet but it is always good and the service is excellent. The mysteries themselves might not be the greatest and the clues don't always add up, but trying to figure out whodunit is always fun. The actors are goofy... More

Took the dinner train with 36 other members of our Corvette club from the East coast of Florida. The service was great, the food was great, one of the best prime rib dinners I have had. The actors did a great job and were having fun. My wife was the winner and solved the mystery.

Fabulous train great show good food. Get there early to get your clue sheet, and browse the souvenir in the shop. Plenty of free parking. When you get there you'll have to pull in to the Lee County Board of Education parking lot and go around to the back of the building where you will see the souvenir store and... More

We have done this twice. Both times we went with another couple and we all really enjoyed it. You are seated at a table for four. The actors put on a good murder mystery show and you try to guess who did it. While the train is going, and the actors go from car to car, you are served dinner.... More

The trip was very fun. The dinner was excellent. We chose the prime rib for our entree and it was a huge piece. I could not eat all of it. The entertainment was good and kept you guessing until the end. Would do it again!

It was a fun evening with friends aboard the Seminole Railroad Murder Mystery Dinner Train. This was the second time my wife and I had taken a ride on a mystery dinner train in another state, so we had some expectations of the experience. However we were quite surprised with the exceptional quality of the dinner train in Fort Meyers.... More

Worth the price! The staff and food were GREAT! The actors could have done a better job though. One character didn't know some of his lines so, every time he messed up all the other actors started laughing. This made it hard to follow. All considered we had a wonderful time and would go again.

We wanted to do something different for our anniversary. I made the reservation online without a problem. When we arrived, we were assigned car and table. The two women at our table were fun and we enjoyed their company. There are 4 to a table. On the table was a fruit and cheese plate to share. There was also 4... More
