The perfect interactive evening of dining and who-done-it for a night out with friends and family!

Join us on the Grand Bellevue’s one-of-a-kind theater car Atlantic Rose for an interactive murder mystery theater presented by the nationally-renowned Murder Mystery Company. During your two-and-one-half-hour journey, you’ll meet the characters, follow the clues, and navigate the twists and turns as you try to solve the crime! As the evening progresses, our skilled service team and culinary staff will prepare and serve a 4-course meal while you sip choice wines and craft cocktails as we travel along Aquidneck Island.  

Fall/Winter 2023

September-November: Masquerade at Midnight

Suggested Attire: This theme occurs in the 1920s and 1930s so dress accordingly!

December: The Most Wonderful Crime of the Year

Silver bells are ringing at this seasonal standup performance, but the jolly jokester gets upstaged by an event far worse than bad holiday comedy: a murder! With humbug hovering over the holiday, it is up to the unamused audience to unravel the mystery of whodunnit like last year’s tacky knitted holiday sweater. While murder is making the night not-so-merry-and-bright, you must gather information, bribe your guests for clues, and solve the crime before this comedy act becomes a tragedy!

Suggested Attire: “The Most Wonderful Crime of the Year” is a modern-day office Christmas party gone terribly wrong. Guests choose to wear holiday office attire or ugly Christmas sweaters.

Find your most festive holiday clothes to make this event a colorful spectacle as you seek to solve the crime! Ugly sweaters, garb gifted from the in-laws fit only for the back of the closet, and garish color clashes will be all the rage at this event.


Feb-Apr: Winter (station-side dining) prices start at just $69.95.
Apr-Dec: On-The-Rails prices range from $89.95-$132.95.
