I'm sure glad that I did not read some of these reviews before we went on The Murder Mystery Train. We had a great time on our Train ride! We were there on a very hot summer day and it was nice and cool on the train. Our server was great, our Prime Rib dinner was great, the cheesy actors had us smiling and laughing the whole time. Yes...they could do a better job helping with the mystery, but they did much better then I expected. We felt that its what you make of it....our expectations were not the highest, but we came away very happy with our evening. Thanks Fillmore and Western!

This was so much fun. This was my very first train ride and it has made me hunger for more. We had so much fun. We had the chance to look around some of the shops before boarding the train and we even bought a couple of things. The train ride was slow on the way out so everyone could enjoy their dinner without wearing it on their laps. Dinner was good and so was the desert. The specialty drinks were very tasty as well. The whole family enjoyed this adventure.

we went on the fathers day lunch train. the food was very good! the staff was super friendly and attentive. the atmosphere was nice. the view was lacking. orange groves or avocado groves with some lemon tress in between. not much to see out the window. it was pretty at some points and the same thing for an hour at others. they do murder mystery trains that I think would be alot more entertaining

We went to Fillmore to check out the Thomas the Train Days. It was wonderful, my son had a great time. Best bet is to take the early train, less crowded, and not hot! All the free activites were great. Would def come again.
