Murder Mystery Dinner Theater: Rescue Mission...in Space!

An unexplained and sudden Black Hole has appeared in the Stratosphere. A strange gravitational pull seems to be drawing us closer and closer. The threat is obvious: In a matter of hours, the "planet" (your train!) and all its inhabitants will be sucked into oblivion and destroyed. A leading scientist believes there is still time to save the planet by sending a team of astronauts into space in an attempt to destroy the Black Hole.

Should we venture into realms unknown to save all humanity, or play it safe and evacuate the "planet" immediately?! What's more, Stellar Matrix, our stellar leader, hasn't been seen or heard from since the crisis began. Without her leadership, chaos and anarchy threaten to destroy us before we're sucked into the dreaded BLACK HOLE!

Includes a delectable boxed dinner.
Your choices include:

Certified Angus roast beef, hard salami, tender sliced turkey, spicy sandwich pepperoni, provolone cheese, leaf lettuce, garden fresh sliced tomato and a zesty vegetable relish heaped on a hoagie roll.
