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.

“Great for kids, kitschy for adults”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2012

If you grew up in San Antonio it's likely one of your earliest memories. Fun way to get around Brackenridge Park. You can get off and on at the Zoo, Witte Museum, Kiddie Park or Sunken Gardens/Japanese Tea Garden

“Fun thing to do with little children”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2012

My children love to ride on this train. It winds through the park sometimes you'll have a conductor with a sense of humor. Great way to rest your feet after spending time at the park or the zoo! Very fair priced.

“If you love little tourist trains...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2012

...then don't miss this one. It's fun to travel through the park and get a sense of where the park attractions are before you start wandering the park for a quiet day.

“Grandchildren love it.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2012

This is something my grandchildren love to do when we go to the zoo. Not much to see , but a shaded ride and here that is a plus with the heat here, if you have young children give it a try ,I am sure they will enjoy it.
