The food was great (with the exception of the appetizer), service was friendly and attentive. The show was really good, enjoyed that immensely. But the ride was long and very jerky, I think that if they went a little faster that it wouldn't have been so bad, I would have been just as happy staying put. If you have a bad back I would not recommend.

My wife, daughter and I took the Murder Mystery train last Sunday evening. The food was excellent. All of us had prime rib and all had different cuts. They were all cooked to our satisfaction. The service was good and coordinated well between getting the food out and the play. The play was fun and the actors projected voices well in the car so no one had a problem hearing. If anything they were a trifle loud. The price is a little pricey (for three meal, drinks & tips came to $300) but of course the experience is unique being there are not to many dinner theaters on a train these days. An enjoyable evening

The train ride was great. Prime rib, was excellent. Two other choices. Salmon or stuffed chicken with cheese and spinach. The mystery was entertaining and interesting.

The train ride and show were good. The food wasn't very good and looks nothing like the pictures. Wouldn't recommend if you have a bad back as the train shifts back and forth. It's a good evening if you enjoy a car load of happy (drunk) people. Not recommended for children.

The Murder Mystery was lots of fun and we compliment the actors and actresses on being able to maneuver between cars on the train and repeat their parts 4 or 5 times....wow! It was a fun show (pay close attention to get the clues!) and the food was very good also.
