Roosevelt Park Zoo Unveils Electric Train

Posted: Updated:

For several years, there's been talk of getting an electric train at the Roosevelt Park Zoo. And, after spending much of their time and energy on flood recovery, the zoo is finally making their dream a reality.

The zoo just unveiled its newest attraction, the electric train, thanks to the Minot Area Community Foundation, Give 360, and the Minot Golf Association.

Guests can tour and learn more about the entire zoo from a box car in just 15-20 minutes.

"It's showing the community that we are coming back better than ever just like the rest of Minot has.  It shows we're continually going to be growing and adding on to the zoo, and are just making it better for everyone that's here," says Staci Kenney.

The electric train is open every day from 12-6 p.m. with tours every half hour. 

Rides are just $2 per person.
