Our road train takes visitors on a journey to discover a number of species as well as the chance to visit 'Lost Madagascar', Colchester Zoo's lemur walkthrough exhibit led by a ranger guide, you can then take a ride back to the station or hop off and explore another area of Colchester Zoo! 

Our mascots Puddles, Milo and Sonny were quick to jump on the new train for a ride, along with some of their other zoo friends! Why not jump on and enjoy the journey during your visit!
