One of my favorite things to do in Seattle is the Spirit of Washington Dinner Train’s murder mystery train. The best part about the train is by far the murder mystery event. The entire trip is filled with fun and laughter as guests participate in a murder mystery from start to finish. The train runs from Renton to Woodinville where you stop and break at a local winery, Columbia Winery. For the murder mystery guests, the mystery continues. For everyone else, you enjoy some wine samples and the luxury of the Winery before reboarding for the return trip to Renton.
I’ve always wondered about the location of the train. The views are ok, but the murder mystery made it fun and somewhat of a novelty experience, though the sticker price is a bit stiff (in my opinion). With all of the freeway expansions going on around town, the dinner train has decided it’s time to move somewhere else. Their last run from Renton to Woodinville will be July 31. I can’t tell if the murder mystery event is still running, but if it is, here’s your final opportunity to take advantage of the event while it’s still nearby. Otherwise, you will have to drive to Tacoma’s Freighthouse Square in downtown Tacoma starting August 3.
