Enjoyed doing this, but I was glad I interviewed some of the characters in the little town even before we got on the train, Getting the mayor to come to give our answer was a challenge, as he was a very busy man. The actors were great!!!

We had such a good time on the ‘Murder Mystery’ train ride. First, one couple could not come due to cancer treatment… Wheatland was understanding and agreed to provide a certificate for future use. I was totally happy with their response as Air Canada or Westjet and many other big companies would not have such compassion.

Second, if you sit in the train and do not interact then you will miss half the fun. Our group of 6 had a great time trying to solve the mystery. The actors were professionals and the story is good.

Third, we enjoyed Alibi vodka made in Wakaw which earned ‘World Best Vodka’. Think about it, ‘World Best Vodka’! You could choose from a list of beer, wine, special vodka drink and more. I did not have food but I saw people have a huge box filled with a variety of cheese, charcuterie etc. It looked delicious and when we go back on our next Wheatland Express Christmas train ride, we will order that.

Fourth, the Little Big Town is very well designed. It is a top notch experience.

I really don’t know why someone would be disappointed with a ‘Murder Mystery Train Experience’! We have visited over 90 countries, have experienced many different unique situations (safaris in Tanzania and Botswana, Galapagos, bushmen, sumo wrestling in Japan…) and I (and hubby) was totally happy and surprised with my afternoon.

Good job Wheatland Express!

The whole trip was truly disappointing. We were looking forward to lots of fun and interactive play but most of the trip was spent sitting bored staring out at wheat fields! From arriving at the station and having no idea where to go with noone giving directions and lack of instructions to lack of things to see and do. When finally on the train, the actors stopped by our table for afew minutes three times. Arriving at the other end of the ride, there again was nothing to see or do! Lack of actors and activities as well as places to go made this Train Heist a flop!! Not recommended at all.

I took my two grandsons, 11 and 14 years old. It was a lot of fun and they really enjoyed it. Because it was their birthdays, each of the wonderful costumed characters came and sat down to chat with them. The characters were delightful actors staying in character through the entire afternoon. The conductor also invited the boys into the locomotive and they got to pull the whistle and move the locomotive from front to back for the return journey, a rare experience for anyone. If it wasn't for the terrible dry bread sandwiches with not much meat, which were overpriced to begin with at $22 each, it would have been perfect. The desserts were okay, but the carrot cake for example had about 3 1/2 tiny strips of carrots in the whole piece. While the train experience and the train heist were fantastic, we left absolutely starving and had to stop at a nearby restaurant to eat. Bring your own sandwich. We highly recommend they find a different food supplier. Otherwise perfect!

The actors were very good and stayed in character for the whole three hour trip. The Pullman Picnic lunch for four was beautifully presented and delicious!!
The Great train robbery is great fun for kids.

We went on the train robbery excursion - three adults and four kids (age 4-10). The kids enjoyed it very much, especially their interactions with the actors. They met them first in the “town” before boarding in Wakaw and continued interacting with them till the end. We were very impressed with how wonderful they were with the kids!

The first half of the trip, to Cudworth, passed by very quickly. The drink service was prompt and our pre purchased snacks arrived soon after boarding. They were excellent. We all wondered around the train as well. The return trip from Cudworth dragged a bit. It was pretty hot by then and the four year old was done!

If you take this trip, note that you really don’t have to arrive a hour early. 20 minutes would be fine. There was a singer and characters in the town, along with a bar, to entertain you before the trip.

This train ride was so much fun. We enjoyed a two hour train ride with a box lunch. There was entertainment and great people.

The train ride and the meal….we went previously.
Why is a Prince Albert bus not available….would be good for older people who have trouble driving at night.

I was so excited to experience an interactive program on this excursion. Didn't realize that they were going to have an unsuspecting customer run around trying to find clues and then figure out what to do with them. There weren't any actors on the train as far as I could tell. When we disembarked for or engine to be switched for return trip there was a short skit...never warned everyone they would be standing out in the cold and most of us couldn't hear or see anything that was going on. I paid over 320.00 for what was to be 4 of us, one guest was unable to make it, he was the lucky one, to sit on a train and visit with each other. Tour was extremely disorganized and amateurish for the price you pay. Sadly I won't be giving them a 2nd chance.
