There are two things just about every child in San Antonio has done — visited Brackenridge Park and taken a ride on the Brackenridge Eagle Miniature Train. It'll take you on a scenic tour of the park, so you can rest your feet and enjoy the ride. It is also one of the longest miniature train rides in the world, covering 3.2 miles of track and taking guests to many stops around the park such as the zoo, sunken gardens, and the Witte Museum.

Great to do in combination with the zoo or alo e. I went with my 7 year old and 20 month old sons on a trip to the zoo. Will do next time even if we dont go to the zoo. Less than $10.

Perfect for a family outing. Loved how the train made stops to allow for enjoying the area before getting back on. Could improve this feature by having a time schedule at each drop off so you know when the next train will be arriving. Not knowing what time to expect the next train can be hard for those of toddler... More

A great attraction to do along with the children when visiting the San Antonio Zoo! Children love trains, and it's fun for adults too!

came here with my sister's kids and they really enjoyed it. one thing they could do to attract even a higher number of visitors is to have some adult activities as well. something for both age groups would go a long way!!

Nice little activity to do with a young one. Train travels slow enough to take in the scenery and our daughter enjoyed it.

Came here a lot of times I lost count. My son loves Thomas the train so we took him here often. The train ride takes about 20-25 minutes through the park.

Took my 2 yr old grandson to ride this train. He loves trains and we knew he would like this one too. We were not disappointed. This train has been a mainstay in San Antonio forever it seems like. It looks as good today as when my kids were little. The trains are well maintained and you can tell that... More

Kids (both under age 5) loved it. It's 15 minute ride and the conductor is fairly entertaining. It makes 4 stops at Witte and Kiddie Park so I'd suggest making a trip part of a larger visit.

Great way to start the day. We did it before entering the zoo. It was.only a few dollars per person. We enjoyed the ride. It was maybe 20 minutes long. My ten year old had fun. The conductor was funny and entertaining.
