Murder Mystery at the Strasburg Rail Road

Event Details

May 28 - Sep 30

Guests are traveling by rail for the big premiere of a new Broadway show and to attend an intimate reception with its star. As the train departs, guests are treated to drinks from the bar, hors d’oeuvres samplings, and soon after, a body. Who could the killer be? The high-powered press agent, the famous actor, her jealous manager, or even the barman? It’s anyone’s guess! Lucky for the passengers — but not so lucky for him — Detective Cecil B. Holden from Scotland Yard recently completed a case in Strasburg, PA. He happens to be on board this train trip, heading to New York City. Can Detective Holden solve the murder and get the guests to the theatre on time? Find out in this thrilling, 45-minute, murderous adventure, only at the Strasburg Rail Road!
