Mystery. Mayhem. Murder. With jealous, jilted lovers, deadly secrets, and plenty of intrigue, our vintage train sets the stage for a devious game of cat and mouse as you search for a killer—or hide your insidious identity from your fellow dinner guests. Of course, you’ll still enjoy three gourmet courses of fine California cuisine on your journey. You’ll just solve a murder on the side. We hear it pairs nicely with a smooth pinot noir.

  • Actors will wear clear face shields for the performance (Actors may, at their discretion, lift face shields when outside of the 6-foot social distancing radius).
  • All shows will include sound systems to ensure everyone can hear the show.
  • We’re performing at venues that will be at 50% capacity or less for your show.
  • The fake money we hand out will be printed on plastic paper that has been sanitized prior to your show.
