We love this little train! The men that volunteer to drive it are great and always so friendly. It's not a long ride, but affordable and we can't go to the zoo without riding. This has always been one of my daughter's favorite things about the Lufkin zoo. That and she got to buy a train whistle from them too for a few bucks. If you ride enough you'll probably get a day when the driver is a little bit in a hurry and speeds around the track...lol Overall this is alot of fun!
