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.
Interested in becoming a train volunteer? We need train engineer volunteers to help on weekdays, weekends and even substitutes and train maintenance volunteers to help on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
