After 10 months of dark cars, Seminole Gulf Railway has announced the return of its Murder Mystery Dinner Train at the end of January.
The 30th season of murder begins Jan. 27 with The Illusion of Death playing Wednesday through Sunday from Jan. 27 through April 4. An escape artist and showman extraordinaire confronts the great dare of all in this turn of the century (19th to 20th century that is) mystery.
The Murder Mystery Dinner Train is a one-of-a-kind theatrical and culinary experience. Enjoy a five-course dinner with a choice from three entrees, prepared fresh on board the train while a live murder mystery show is played out in the dining cars during your 40-mile round trip over 3 and half hours from Colonial Station in Fort Myers.
Your five-course dinner consists of a shared appetizer platter, soup, choice of salad or fruit cup, choice of slow roast prime rib, poached salmon, or naked chicken as your main entrée, and dessert, plus coffee, tea, and iced tea. A wide range of wine, beer, cocktails and soft drinks are available for purchase on board the train. Menu items may change from month to month.
New murder mystery shows open throughout the year. The 30th season also includes Sing Me a Murder April 7 – June 20, Don’t Cry for Me June 23 – Sept. 5, Murder Wrap Sept. 8 – Nov. 25, Wicked Winter Wonderland Nov. 26 – Dec. 24 and Murder Without A Clue Dec. 26, 2021 – March 13, 2022.
Murder Mystery Dinner Trains depart promptly at 6:30 p.m. (5:30 p.m. on Sundays and certain holidays).
Join the fun and become a super sleuth as you try to solve “Who Dunnit?” During the comical murder mystery show that plays out in the aisles of each dining car in between the courses of your meal. Each passenger receives a playbill, clue sheet, and pen to follow along with the live scripted show, writing down clues as they go. Clue sheets are collected before the final resolution act.
