The Zoo Train

All aboard! Hop on for a ride on one of Zoo Atlanta’s family favorites – The Zoo Train! A handcrafted replica of an original 1863 locomotive, the train is one of the Zoo’s most popular attractions. Take a journey through the town of Critter Crossing to experience a day in the life of its inhabitants. The train is equipped with wide, comfortable seats, and covered passenger coaches.

Our popular Zoo Train is open with  new procedures in place to align with our Zoo-wide safety policies to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The Zoo Train is an optional experience and requires a face mask for participants who are 2 years old or above. For the health and safety of Zoo team members, guests, and animals, there are no medical exemptions.
