Prairie Zephyr Train

September 29 – Train will run until 8 PM

October 1st – Last day to ride the Train
After October 1st, the train will only run during special events, including Wildlife Scary Park and Santa’s Wildlife Express, until Spring 2024.

Take a ride on the famous Prairie Zephyr throughout the beautiful Wildlife Prairie Park. This relaxing and informative excursion takes you on two different loops through the quiet forests. Your ticket includes both loops and can be used to ride the entire trip, or you may take advantage of stops along the way at the Pioneer and Gollywhopper Pavilions. Your ticket allows you to re-board at your convenience and can be purchased at the Ticket Gate or online

As a general rule, for an optimum train ride for our guests, we require minimum operating temperature in the spring and fall to a forecasted high of 50 degrees or higher. Also, if rain is in the forecast, train rides may be halted until clearer weather occurs.
