My wife took me to the Murder Mystery Train for my birthday. How cool. Great food -really! The actors were perfect. You could hear every word. The plot was good and just a little mature. Wonderful evening. We would recommend it. Dr. Watson

Had the opportunity to ride the train last nite with friends and enjoyed the mystery dinner show. The prime rib and potatoes were great. Key lime pie was wonderful as well. Great way to spend a Saturday evening.
