The Blues Trains is a fun night. I'm not even really a fan of blues music, doesn't matter, we all had a ball. 4 different carriages, get to mix things up and sit with different people each time.

Let me emphasize something right at the outset. The bloody music in carriage D was way too LOUD. It was uncomfortably LOUD. It was LOUD and DISTORTED. I have been to many concerts in my lifetime but this was amateurish, the placement of speakers made...More

All started on a good note. BUT security did not step in when two couples were obviously hyped up by excessive alcohol. The owner gives a safety talk at the start saying that bad behaviour would not be tolerated but that's exactly what happened. These...More

We were really looking forward to the Blues Train experience but sadly it just didn't quite get there. First up, the music and the performers were great and made the whole weekend trip worthwhile. Dinner is included and the meal was tasty, but certainly functional...More

I agree with this review. When dancers are up you cannot see the performers and it was these same four people who caused problems on the rest of the carriages. Talking over the performers and being obnoxious while security watched it happen. Did anyone else experience this behaviour
