Next Performance: Saturday, May 27th
Take part in an evening of delicious food, breathtaking scenery, outstanding service, and a classic murder mystery produced and performed by the talented, award-winning Red Herring Productions.
Enjoy a scrumptious dinner, spectacular scenery, and a hilarious, interactive murder mystery on the breathtaking Royal Gorge Route Railroad! While Red Herring does the entertaining, our professional servers will be at the ready offering exceptional service. Throughout the trip, you’ll have a full bar at your fingertips where you can pair your gourmet dinner selection to your heart’s delight. Our first-class dinner menu offers delicious prix fixe, three-course experiences to choose from, all featuring fresh, locally sourced Colorado ingredients. Nothing pairs with dinner quite like our Conductor’s Reserve Wine List, which offers outstanding varietals at realistic prices not found at other fine dining establishments.
At any time during your journey, feel free to wander outside, glass in hand, to our open observation car and enjoy the 360° scenic vista featuring the rushing Arkansas River, geological formations within the Royal Gorge, and historic sites where the wind carries the echoes of eras gone by.
