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

On the murder mystery train. It was very cute The actors were so animated and so much fun! The food was decent and service good as well. The ride is a bit rocky (they stop for the main course) but overall I will do this again!!!

We have been quite a few times to this attraction; we take our visitors for a fun experience. the staff were very acommodating this time, especially since we ere late arriving and they waited for us too board the train. That being said we were disappointed with the actual Play and the content and writing of it. The writing was... More

Traveled with a group to enjoy the murder mystery train, thinking OK - a show & a ride, but it's a train, so not so great food. We were surprised!! A great meal, served well even through the rocking of the train. Best prime rib I have had in a long time. Better than the steak houses & much better... More

My family and I embarked upon the 'Deadly Doubles' murder mystery last weekend, and we were enchanted with the great views and beautifully kept interior of the train itself. However, the food was lacking in choice for the money charged - the tween girls (and myself) would have liked more variety to choose from, even one or two more dishes.... More

Okay, let me start by saying, we had a great time at our table! However, there were a few things we didn't love... The train smelled old, but then it is, so understandable. We were the youngest people in our car, again we can deal with that. The drinks and food were great! The wait staff was very friendly and... More

We were able to purchase tickets about 3 hours before departure which was really great. The train is really cute and a comfortable ride. Our server Jamie was very friendly and provided outstanding service. The food was delicious except for the dessert, they served key like pie- no one at my table ate it. My suggestion- Death by Chocolate- that... More

This was a delightful train ride. The food was excellent and the show was quite amusing. Just keep in mind the drinks are not included so you could run up an unexpected bill just with coke refills.
