The Eagle Train is a nice 30 minute ride around Brackenridge Park. The conductor tells you some of interesting history of the area during the ride.

I may be biased But I love this train ride. My grandmother always took us and I always would take my children and now I take my grandchildren. If you have little ones it is great.

Cost is $4/person over 2 years old. We had fun. The history was really neat. We have a 13 year old and a 1 year old and both enjoyed it. We were hoping the train goes by a few zoo exhibits, but it doesn’t.
