My wife and I took our 14 month old on his 1st train ride, even though it's a mini version. He seemed to be impartial to it. I like that it travels alongside the Barton Creek, even under a street bridge. We got lucky weather-wise cuz it wasn't too hot nor too cold. My son probably would've fussed halfway through the ride. Good ride for the money.

Was a little cold in December, but an adventure to go around the park and then come back again on the same tracks.

Surprised the train ride was so long. Worth the money. 2 yr old grandson was captivated by the ride, his first. It was a sunny day and I found an extremely well made 100% cotton cap for him at the gift shop in the ticket office. I expected to pay $20 for the cap, and it was only $8, including tax. What a steal.

Remember to bring cash. Everything here in the park is cash only. There is an ATM where you would purchase your train tickets but you will likely cough up a $5 fee to get your money. The train isn't spectacular but the ride is. The ride lasts about 20 minutes and goes through all this amazing park in the middle of the city. My kids loved it and would do it all day. They charge $3 per adult or $2 per child (ages 1-11). Bring a hat in the summer as it gets hot but there are also many shaded spots along the ride and in the park.

Would love to have given this a higher rating but we just didn't see the fun in this... And It was 105 degrees. The train ride at Austin zoo is much better.
