On some very special Saturdays throughout the year, the Royal Gorge Railroad offers a Murder Mystery Dinner Train aboard the William Jackson Palmer Dining Car.

Imagine eating a spectacular three-course meal in a historic train as it travels through one of Colorado’s most famous landmarks. Now picture a host of characters from the wild west playing out a mystery and waiting for you to solve it. That’s exactly what you’ll get when you book your ticket to watch Red Herring Productions of Colorado Springs perform “Murder in Buffalo Chip” or “Murder Speaks Easy.”

While actors entertain you, the Royal Gorge Railroad’s professional servers wine and dine you. You’ll have a full bar at your fingertips and a menu with a variety of fantastic prix fixe, three-course dinners to choose from—all featuring Colorado-grown and raised ingredients.

This special Murder Mystery Dinner Train departs from the Cañon City Depot in Cañon City.  The journey lasts 2 1/2 hours and covers a round-trip distance of 24 miles. Seating is limited for this special Murder Mystery Dinner train and reservations are required.

If you’re looking for a once in a lifetime experience, how about seeing the magnificent Royal Gorge and the Arkansas River from a train car while also solving a murder mystery? Sound great? Book your ticket now.
