Enjoy a relaxing excursion along approximately 1/3 mile of track around the lagoon and through the Wild Kingdom Zoo, Utah's second largest zoo, behind an authentic 24" narrow gauge steam locomotive.
Lagoon's Wild Kingdom Train is a 24" narrow gauge authentic steam railroad. Guests enter the Wild Kingdom Train Station and wait for an attendant to open one of three loading gates and choose a seat in one of four coaches. The coaches are pulled by one of two authentic 19th century styled propane fired 24" narrow gauge locomotives.
Leaving the Wild Kingdom Train Station and traveling through the only grade crossing, the train travels up an incline, onto the trestle over Lagoon Lake and into the tunnel. After exiting the tunnel, guests can take in the scenic view of Lagoon Lake or the excitement of Lagoon-A-Beach Water Park. After exiting the trestle, the train enters the Wild Kingdom Zoo and guests have the opportunity view Siberian Tigers, Canadian Lynx, Miniature Donkeys, Grant's Zebras, Llamas, Rocky Mountain Elk, Collared Peccaries, Bactrian Camels, Muntjacs, Golden Eagles, Addax, Ostriches, Emus, Fallow Deer, Red Kangaroos and Warthogs.
Excursions on the Wild Kingdom Train usually last anywhere from 8 to 12 minutes, depending on park attendance and number of trains operating. Both trains are usually operated on busy days and Saturdays.
Lagoon is Fun Recommendation
Many animals in the Wild Kingdom Zoo, such as the Tigers and Lynx, are nocturnal and more active in the evening. To see the "big cats" when they are most active, ride the Wild Kingdom Train in the evening after dusk.
