Overview

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.

A fitting way to end our day at the zoo. It was a nice ride and the clickety clack of rails and slow rocking of the car quickly relaxed my grandson into a silent trance. Nothing real exciting about the train, but fun none the...More

We did the train ride at the end of our Zoo visit. It was a great end to the visit, giving us a chance to rest our tired legs, but it doesn't have a lot to offer in and of itself. It's a very quick...More

The train ride is fun for kids and family. Has several stops and we got off at the stops to walk to the attractions near by. Kiddie park and the Japanese garden. Super nice for kids . Highly recommended.

Cheap travel through the park. We actually rode twice, once to see what all was around and once to get to the tea garden after the zoo visit.
