Climb aboard the Zoo Train for a fun and informative journey around the Zoo!
Daily beginning at 11 am with the last ride at 3:30 pm.
The Zoo train will only operate during times that the temperature is above 55 degrees. As always, the train will be closed during inclement weather.
Please call (757) 441-2374 for daily train schedule and departure times.
After more than a million rides and the 11 years since it opened, the ZooTrain is in need of some enhancements. Just as is the case with commercial rail lines, the Zoo Train rail bed is regularly maintained and is now due for track bed maintenance. A new service spur will allow individual cars to be removed for service and lessen wear and tear on the engine.
All aboard and become a Norfolk Southern Express engineer! Get a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to be a part of a top Virginia Zoo attraction.
