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.

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....More
