ok expericence. Value is okay and it is just a ride around the park. not much on the sightseeing side. great for small children for the experience of riding on a train.

One of the best things about the park. After you've finished visiting the zoo climb aboard and take the train over to the Witte Museum to see the exhibits and play in the Tree House then take the train back.

We have a family tradition, when one of the grand kids has a birthday, we go ride the Eagle. It is a wonderful way to see Brackenridge Park. It stops at the zoo, the McNay Museum and a couple of other spots so you can hop off and re-board a later trip. It even has a tunnel. Enjoy.

We all went on family zoo trip and this train was so fun. Took us through all the areas around zoo. The conductor was funny and friendly, very animated on tour! Price was only $3 per person, and worth it. I will take family back again.

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.
