Napa Valley Murder Mystery Train

This dinner train is the perfect combination of spooky and delicious. You will be thrust into a stylish speakeasy that turns deadly, and you’ll have to help the cast solve the case. Feel free to dress up in your 1920s garb to get in the spirit, or come in your regular clothes, and you’ll still fit in as a private detective. While this fun event happens throughout the year, it is especially fun in the Halloween season, as the spooky mystery will get you in the spirit. Not to mention, the multiple course gourmet meal and the smooth California wine are the perfect dinner plans for your group!

The Napa Valley Murder Mystery Train experience lasts about four hours. You will want to arrive at 5:30 p.m., as this is when the entertainment starts. Your train will depart at 6:30 p.m. and will return at 9:30 p.m. Tickets for this event can be purchased online at winetrain.com.
