We went to Breckenridge Park for the day and one of the highlights was riding the Eagle. You can stay on the train and just do the loop, but to get the most out of your train ride I highly recommend arriving early in the day and getting off at every stop. Enjoy the Witte Museum, the Kiddie Park (if... More

We took the kids to the zoo and then rode the train around the park after. The kids loved it and we had time to relax before we left for the ride home.

Cost is about $3.75 a person for a 15 minute ride through Brackenridge park. The S.A. Zoo now officially owns the train. I would prefer that I could somehow include this in my family membership to the zoo, but no such luck. Lines to board can be long but still worth the trip.

I didn't get to Brackenridge this time but did love to visit when I was at Lackland after basic. Of course, that was 1966 and some things have probably changed.

We go often because my 4 year old loves trains so he has a blast. The conductors are all very nice, give a little information while you ride and they play it up for the kids as well. The park is nice and you'll see people walking around waving for the kids. A great way to spend 20 minutes. It's... More

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.
