What a fun evening out. We were asked to board the train the train 45 minutes prior to departure. We were greeted by the most gracious server, Nikki.

Right off the bat, the food was more than amazing. If you order the Prime Rib, order it a bit more cooked than you normally would. I was OK with Med-Rare, but it was on the red side for others around me. Anyhow, we saw the WHAU episode. Let me break it down... THE GOOD. Again, the food and drinks... More

Tickets are very expensive. Our party of five paid about $400. Food is average, except for the prime rib, which I'm told was very good. Key lime pie was also good. View outside the train is depressing except for the river portion of the ride. The show is ok. The ride is almost 4 hours if you include time inside... More

After years of wanting to do this I was not disappointed. We had so much fun. The food is AMAZING. Best prime rib ever. I wasn't a fan of the dessert option. Great drink menu. The cast was fun and entertaining. The staff was on point. Time frame is perfect too.
