Balboa Park Miniature Train
This miniature train is built to one-fifth scale and offers leisurely rides around Balboa Park . But this is not just local entertainment. Over five million people have participated in the locomotive excitement since 1948. Holding 48 people in a single trip, the locomotive takes you on a three-minute journey through the Park. The route is one-half mile long and covers four acres. The locomotive is perfect for adults and kids of all ages.
Living in San Diego my whole life (40 Yrs), I've seen many things that have come and gone. Thanksfully thisis still there. When I was 10 my dad took me on this train and recently I took my son and daughter and we had a blast. Its not a very long ride and at times it's a little cheesy, but the kids thought it was fantastic ( I did too). It's right next to the SD Zoo and also to a carousel that will bring back memories. Definately include thsi as part of your day at Balboa Park and the SD Zoo (all next to each other within walking distance).
I road this train when I was a child and I enjoyed it so much. I took my child to ride on it and enjoyed it again watching it through his eyes. It hasn't changed at all, one of the only things in San Diego that hasn't changed. For small children it is lots of fun, for adults, well, it's okay.
What better place to take your children or "children at heart" who enjoy all things Railroad. This nifty little train ride is worth every $ 1.25 each passenger pays. It's not often these days that you can find such an enjoyable family outing at this low price. And with so many other attractions nearby, an afternoon trip to Balboa Park is the ulitimate way to spend some quality time with friends and family.
