Take this train from the park's Africa section to Rafiki's Planet Watch, a 'land-within-a-land,' and on the way, take a look behind-the-scenes at some of the park's animal support facilities.

A train ride to no where with no scenic views is amazing in a huge park that has so many beautiful vista's. And as almost every ride in this park it's short and boring. I would love to see this train expand and travel all over the park. - O T

I was bored with this ride honestly, but it was nice to be able to sit down after walking through most of the attractions here. We did not get off the train because the map showed it was just a little area of petting animals. We enjoyed how the train faced one direction yet it seemed we were always facing opposite of the speakers main pointed areas. - Meg T.

Surprising well themed train. Educational and cool. 7/10. - David L.

The only thing I can say about this is that the actual train looks nice. - Tim Taylor

The only positive is that its authentically themed like a train in a less than third world nation. Otherwise the trip has uneventful scenery. Not worth a wait. - Rob Pastor

COMPLETE LOST OF TIME! Only thing average on the other side is the conservation center. 2/10 - Denis Del Bianco

Don't get on this unless you enjoy watching the employee's cars as you chug along slowly to an isolated area with nothing to do in it. Also you have to queue up again to get back to the main part of the park. AVOID IT! 0/10 - D H

An ordinary train ride. You can sometimes spot animals in their holding areas. - Mostly Anonymous
