Long Description:
Opened in 1967 as Animaland Train, the Wild Kingdom Train continues the memory of Lagoon being a stop on the old Bamberger Train line.

The steam train travels with guests around the lagoon and through Lagoon's Animal Kingdom treating them to spectacular views and glimpses of exotic animals. With animals like Siberian tigers, a golden eagle, zebras, camels, and African lions, the Wild Kingdom Train gives an experience unlike most amusement park train rides.

In the 1970s and 1980s, Lagoon operated the Wild Kingdom Train. One locomotive (Houston) was painted black and trailed orange cars, and the other trainset (locomotive included) was painted green.

Two trains circle the half mile track at a time.
