Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
Owner description: 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.

Make sure and plan ahead to take the train and get off at all of the depots. Going to the museum, the zoo and enjoying the park are awesome. Waiting for the whistle is fun for the kids too.

Our kids had a blast on this enjoyable miniature train ride. The ride is about 20 minutes long with a few stops along the way. Highly recommended. Just as an aside, I suggest sitting towards the back since the horn is pretty loud in front and could startle small kids.

A lot of fun for the young and old alike. The train winds around Breckenridge Park and has stops at the Witte Museum and the Japanese Tea Garden. The driver gives a wonderful narration about the history of the area while cruising along.

A very relaxing trek through Brackenridge Park and the San Antonio zoo. Even if you don't have children it's still fun to do.

Surely every kiddo in South Texas has ridden "The Eagle!" It's safe, clean, and fun. Tops off the annual trip to the SA Zoo every year. You just never get too old for it!
