Murder Mystery Dinners Jan. 30, Feb, 13, March 27
Enjoy an evening like no other with a lively murder mystery dinner show aboard the train. The show is a deliciously dreadful soap opera  — “Days of our Nights” — celebrating the last episode of its 30th season aboard a train which has been artfully disguised as Amtrak 1. In an effort to raise the soap’s sagging ratings, Director Lazlo Saltimbocca has invited a “very big” mystery star to make a cameo appearance in tonight’s cliffhanger, prior to joining the company as the leading actor next season. Trouble breaks out when the stars Bianca Leigh, Marco Polo and Destiny Nightingale make some nasty discoveries about their future. Train guests will double as “extras” on the show, lending their talents and their expertise as witnesses to murder.

Your ticket includes a three-course dinner, murder mystery show, and 32-mile train trip. Unless noted otherwise, the train departs at 7 p.m. and returns to Oakdale at 10 p.m. The cost is $62 per guest (plus service charge & taxes).
