Each of the nominees is the creme de la creme of "whodunit" writers and are, without a doubt, the craftiest minds in the business. Someone, however, seems to think otherwise, and the plot thickens as they have a novel idea -- try to commit the perfect crime. Can you match wits and go pen-to-pen with these masterminds before the final chapter comes to a close? Buffet dinner, served by Stewart Premier Catering @ 5 PM. The actors will present the 1st segment of the evening's entertainment while you dine. Then it's off for a train ride as the evening's entertainment continues on board.
