We had such a good time. The food was delicious. The play was amusing. If you don't have a group of four, you will be sitting with people you don't know. We were fortunate enough to sit with a very nice couple who we enjoyed talking with and there was a lot of laughter and discussion regarding "who dunnit?" The... More

Be sure to arrive hungry because the portion's are GIGANTIC! We all agreed the food was quite excellent (I had Salmon and my husband had prime rib), amazing true/ fresh key lime pie and a good wine menu or interesting drink menu. All and all it was a good night, a pleasant train ride, entertaining and a well played Murder... More

My wife and I attended on a Friday night - the train was packed, the food was outstanding, the play was entertaining, and the service great. But the best thing was the train ride. The train is amazing - it's in great shape. The tables are set with linen and the interior looks great. Seriously do this if you have... More

I have been this this dinner several times and positively rated it. But this time I was given what had to be the worst seat possible. I booked several months in advance, paid a tidy sum for a party of three and got a seat that I believe shouldn't have been sold. If sold it should have been discounted greatly... More

Hello, my husband and I tried this attraction and found it to be quite interesting. First, be aware that you will be seated with strangers if you are just a party of two. We were sat next to a nice couple and so that turned out okay. The actors and actresses were great and we enjoyed that part of the... More

The actors were excellent, as was the show. Food excellent, but service slow, wines were dreadful. We were on the train for 4.5 hours and the seats are just not that comfortable. A novel evening but I cannot recommend it.

What a fun night. The show (Murder Mystery- The Great Gotsby) was hilarious. The characters were professional and really involved the audience. They were hoot. The big surprise was the gourmet dinner. 5 star dinner on the train. Dinner started with a cheese platter for the table to share followed by fabulous potato leek soup and a nice salad with... More

We have been talking about going to this attraction for years and finally had an opportunity to do so. The train left on time and the actors made their best effort to put on a good show. However, the cars are showing their age and the ride was not as enjoyable as we would have hoped. We were seated with... More
