Take a scenic ride on the world’s first miniature streamline train, built in 1951 as a 1/5-scale replica of the famous Florida East Coast Champion. On a mile-long ride, Champ the Train explores the woods surrounding the Central Florida Zoo, as well as wetlands and a 110-foot tunnel! Be on the lookout for life-size animal figures on your ride for a peek at what you’ll see beyond the Zoo gates.
Please note the train is not operational when it is raining or the tracks are wet.
Whether you’re arriving at the Zoo or about to head home after a day of fun, be sure to stop by our Animal Carousel, located just outside our main gate. With alligators, giraffes, ponies and more, your little ones can choose their favorite Zoo animal to ride. And with plenty of great photo opportunities for moms, dads and teachers to make the most of, this will be a memory you’ll cherish.
