Fee: Yes
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.

“It's must if you have small children.”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Cost is about $3.75 a person for a 15 minute ride through Brackenridge park. The S.A. Zoo now officially owns the train. I would prefer that I could somehow include this in my family membership to the zoo, but no such luck. Lines to board can be long but still worth the trip.

“Rode it a long time ago”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

I didn't get to Brackenridge this time but did love to visit when I was at Lackland after basic. Of course, that was 1966 and some things have probably changed.

“Awesome little train ride”
Reviewed 20 May 2014 via mobile

We go often because my 4 year old loves trains so he has a blast. The conductors are all very nice, give a little information while you ride and they play it up for the kids as well. The park is nice and you'll see people walking around waving for the kids. A great way to spend 20 minutes. It's just a fun miniature train ride that runs through and around Brackenridge park.. no more no less.

“Great for Small Kids”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

The train takes riders on about a 20 minute ride from the zoo, around Brackenridge park, stops at the Witte and golf course, then drops off again at the zoo. The train can also be used to travel from the zoo, to the Witte, and back again. A good way to spend half an hour in downtown San Antonio.
