The train takes riders on about a 20 minute ride from the zoo, around Brackenridge park, stops at the Witte and golf course, then drops off again at the zoo. The train can also be used to travel from the zoo, to the Witte, and back again. A good way to spend half an hour in downtown San Antonio.

During our second visit to San Antonio we found Breckenridge Park...more importantly we found the train! Boy was it fun. We got there at 9am and were greeted by several other families anxious for the ride to begin. The 20 minute ride went by very quickly. We really enjoyed the river crossings and the friendly waves from those we rode... More

This ride has been a family favorite for as long as I can remember. I remember growing up in San Antonio and a trip to the zoo always meant a ride on the Brackenridge Eagle. What a treat. This has been the longest miniature railroad ride in the US or the world for as long as I can remember. Ride... More

It was a beautiful day and the train ride was nice. They make several stops throughout the ride; the playground area, the museum, and the Japanese Tea Garden in addition to going over the San Antonio River. The conductor was very knowledgeable and offered tidbits of information throughout the ride.

We ride the train every time we go to the San Antonio Zoo. Have three-year old twins and its one of their favorite things to do. It's not expensive and a decent trip around the park. Order popcorn inside, sit on the bench outside and wait for the train, and enjoy the ride!

This train is located next to the San Antonio zoo. It is just adorable. Tickets are $3.30 for adults and children 3 years of age or older. The trains takes you through Brackenridge park, which is always beautiful. Hours are from 9:30am to 5:30pm.
