Keith & Margo's Mystery Train
Los Angeles - San Diego, CA

Keith & Margo's Mystery Train

Who hasn't dreamed of beating Columbo to the punch or who hasn't wanted to be Jessica Fletcher or Hercule Poirot for a couple of days? Well, now's your chance.

Come match wits with our fellow passengers, make new friends and to boot you'll enjoy a great weekend away from the ordinary!

Enjoy an exciting murder mystery which begins aboard the train from Union Staion, Los Angeles, and carries through the next two days at the luxurious Westgate Hotel, San Diego.

Guests at Los Angles Union Station at 4:30 pm to board train.
The Train departs at 5:10 pm, and arrives in San Diego at 7:50 pm.
Friday dinner is at 9:00 pm.

On Sunday - The train departs at 3 pm and arrives in LA at 5:45 pm.

But we're pretty sure that on this one weekend, it won't be quite the restful place it normally is because of a murder (or two, let's say three at the outside) will be committed in front of a roomful of witnesses!

The weekend of crime will follow one of Keith and Margo's Murder Mystery Weekend special plots starting Friday evening when you meet with your fellow sleuths, not all who are what they appear to be. Infiltrating the group are actors who will do their best to blend in, and sometimes, even work to incriminate you. The Friday reception is a good place and time to become familiar with the scheming, manipulative, deceitful and murderous people that you will be spending the next day and a half with. As opposed to the ones you meet every week back home.

The mystery begins on Friday evening and develops at lunch on Saturday, but you'll still have some free time to take advantage of Keith & Margo's Mystery Train 's facilities before dinner. Dreadful events occur, and you may stumble over a dead body or two. In the best tradition of television and the movies, the chances are good that a kindly, perhaps somewhat dishevelled, local detective with a possibly warped sense of humor, will become involved to clarify the situation, guiding and cajoling you into thinking about the means, methods and motives of murder!

By dinner on Saturday night, you should have all the information you need to solve the murder but just when you think you've got it sussed, watch out for the final twist!

Sunday breakfast at Keith & Margo's Mystery Train is when it all comes to an end! You'll be asked to write down our best hunch about who did what to whom, and why. (You already know how, because you'll have seen it with your own eyes.) While you enjoy breakfast with your fellow sleuths, (mercifully free of herrings, red or otherwise), our team will select the best submitted solution, along with some of the more outlandish suggestions for the prizegiving ceremony.

Lots of laughs, lots of suspense too!
