  • Train ride was fun. Murder mystery show was a little short but that's understandable as they gotta travel to perform in each car. We stopped in Watertown where we had dinner and headed back after 3 hours. Overall it was a pleasant trip.
  • Fun, but take their estimated arrival times for train trips as broad estimates. We were more than half an hour later than they said and we will be much, much later getting home than anticipated. Otherwise, a fun time.
