Comfortable train ride. Engineer really knows how to handle a passenger train! Food is very decent but not great. Play was fun even though a bit hokey. All in all, it was a good way to spend the evening.

My husband and I enjoyed ourselves completely. The energetic actors put their hearts into the mystery. The wait staff served the meal with amazing precision. No easy task on a moving train with a narrow aisle. Plentiful food and delicious.
I'm not sure children or the younger set would be as impressed by it all. Good setting for a couple or a small group to relax together and imbibe. Four people at each table
BIGGEST PROBLEM: finding the location.
Look for the Lee County Public Education Center. Enter its driveway. Turn left.
The Depot shares their parking lot.

We have wanted to try this for awhile now so figured it was an ideal time with my daughter and 18 year old grandaughter. It was a fun evening the meal was good considering they had 200 people to feed, three great choices and five course meal. Servers were excellent!! We were seated at the end of the car so could not hear all the actor's comments also other passengers were talkative, which was disappointing. Not something I would return too though.

We made a reservation for this dinner/train ride/murder mystery and was so delightfully entertained and feed. It was so worth the money. Tons of fun aboard the Seminole Gulf Railway! It provided a nice train ride and scenery too.

The evening was very enjoyable. We sat with strangers who were loads of fun. The dialogue for the Beatle Themed Murder Mystery was a little lame at times but the costumes were good. Food could have been a little higher end and a little smaller portioned. Good value though.
