Woodland Express Train Ride – 15 minute round trip
The Woodland Express is a rubber tire train that takes you on a tour of our North American Exhibit and our local wetlands. This peaceful ride is a hidden gem here at Southwick’s Zoo. The train passes through native wetlands and you never know what you will see. You can get a very up close look at our North American Elk and see some local New England wildlife such as herons, red-tailed hawk, river otter, snakes, and turtles to name a few.
The Woodland Express Train Station is located near the Elkhorn Mining and the Pony Rides. While you wait for the next train you can browse the station’s selection of souvenirs. The Woodland Station offers an assortment of themed gifts such a mining helmets (perfect for when you enter Elkhorn mine!), plush toys, and clothing. Refreshments such a snacks and beverages are also available. There is a picnic area outside of the Train Station to sit and enjoy your lunch or a snack.
