This is one of SA’s most popular events, but runs rarelydue to the owner having to run the Mystery Ghost “Tours” in 8 cities around SA.

Sells out quickly (only 48 seats), where several people tend to book many friends to join them.

This is a unique production, and the only one of its kind in SA where people travel from afar (or fly in) due to its popularity. You will be served a 5-star, 3-course meal, on 2 vintage museum-piece dining cars (we are lucky to use them). Because the dining cars don’t actually move, you can exit them at any time to use the train station’s toilets.

(1). The production begins with drinks & shooters on the dining cars, followed by a ghost tour of SA’s most haunted olde Victorian train station (opened in 1895), followed by Starters in the dining cars (coaches). The olde steam train whistle blows, the clickety-clack of the sounds of the wheels on the rails begins, and you are off to the next train station stop called “Spookheuwel” (the train doesn’t actually move, but we add effects as if it is moving).

(2). At “Spookheuwel” you will enter the station’s hall. Here, you will be treated to classic countryside (veld) ghost stories from around SA, by the light of the moon on a black backdrop and the sounds of crickets occasionally chirping, as if you are really outside in the eerie night air. Plus an ending with three dramatically recorded radio studio stories, with music, sound effects and a chilling visual effect. Then it is back to the dining car for the Main Course, as the train leaves for the next stop called “Victoria Hollow”.Minimum Booking: 2 persons.

(3). At “Victoria Hollow” you will leave the dining car and enter the station’s hall again, but which is decorated differently this time so that you think you are at a different station stop yet again. Here you will enjoy the ‘Vaudeville Spook Stage Show’ (just like such stage shows were presented from the 1880s to 1920s), where you will be entertained to the hilt by candlelight with all manner of eerie visual effects. Then it is back to the dining cars for Dessert plus drinks, liqueurs, coffee and/or tea.

Minimum Booking: 2 persons.
