Any top tips?

All aboard! Enjoy the ride on this one-third scale model of an 1860s steam engine, a favorite attraction for many of the EcoTarium's youngest visitors.

The 12-minute ride is a relaxing and fun way to travel around the museum grounds. Be sure to keep an eye out for a red fox -- and you might even catch a glimpse of Kenda the polar bear! Best of all, pass through a tunnel that elicits squeals of delight from young (and young at heart) passengers. $3 per person/$2 for members
