The Mini-Train is open weekends only through Oct. 31. Join us for "Spookomotive" on Oct. 31 as the train is decorated for Halloween.


The Gage Park mini-train has been making memories for children and adults alike for more than 50 years.  Follow a mile-long scenic course through the heart of the park, as the engineer enlightens you on the history of Gage Park and the many attractions available in the park for you and your family to enjoy. Children under 12 months ride for free. 

COVID-19 precautions: Seating on the mini-train will be limited during Phase 2 and Phase 3 of "A Guide to Re-opening Shawnee County, Kansas" from the Shawnee County COVID-19 Response Team. Families will be seated together but rows of seats will be skipped to achieve social distancing. Staff will clean and disinfect the train between each ride.
