The Murder Mystery Dinner Train is a comical murder mystery show, five-course dinner and nostalgic train ride that departs from Colonial Station in Fort Myers, Florida. Held on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings, guests record clues on clue sheets and attempt to determine the killer. Passengers sit at tables of four as per railroad dining tradition. The murder mystery show performances vary based on the day of the week and the time of year.
All guests must have prepaid reservations made by calling Myers Murder Mystery Dinner Train directly or using the secure booking system on the official Seminole Gulf Railway website. All trains depart and return to Colonial Station, and the entire trip takes about 3.5 hours. Special events last longer, such as the New Year’s Eve Gala event. Passengers travel on a real, moving freight rail train line in air-conditioned cars. Passengers who guess the killer right are eligible to win a prize.
Dress for the Murder Mystery Dinner Train is semi-formal with no jacket or tie required. Beverage service is not included in the meal price; onboard, the bar and service staff accept cash and most major credit cards.
Seminole Gulf Railways also offers hotel and dinner train getaway packages, which include a double occupancy hotel room and a hot breakfast.
