“A really fun way to celebrate a great dinner and mystery drama”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

If you love trains, good food and an interesting myster drama, you'll love your evening here. The dramas are interesting but pay close attention to what the actors are saying and doing for the clues if you want to participate in solving the mystery. The prime rib is great but you may need a doggie bag because of the generous portion.

“Excellent dinner”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

The train ride was interesting, the mystery murder show was a bit hammy but kind of fun if you want something different to do. The best was dinner. Ha the prime rib and everything was prepared perfectly.

“Food, atmosphere and acting was great! Story line about average.”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Yes, this is expensive, but the meal was huge and delicious!!

The train is older and it's more about the atmosphere than the decorations. We had a great wait staff. The actors were good, but the story line was about average, but entertaining.

It takes about 3-4 hours. I was expecting an average meal, but the prime rib was HUGE and delicious! I'm rather picky when it comes to food and was pleasantly surprised at how tasty it was!

I uploaded a few pictures.

“A Great Time”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Took the ride for the first time in April. I wan't expecting much, but I was surprised. The prime rib was excellent and the food was really good. The entertainment was good and the service was much better than I expected. When guests are in town this winter, I plan on visiting them again.

“Birthday Dinner”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

The murder mystery on the dinner train was Dice, Deeds & Death. The production was very entertaining and the cast was great. The food was very good and the staff was nice. The other people in our car that night were friendly and enjoyable.
