Add a ride on the historic Little Puffer miniature steam train to your visit to the San Francisco Zoo. Like generations before you, you'll make wonderful childhood memories for your kids. Little Puffer does not run in wet weather due to slippery tracks, and is periodically closed for maintenance. Call the Zoo before your visit.

Talking Storybook and Zoo Keys $3
The ever-popular, interactive Storybooks have returned to the Zoo, activated by the beloved, plastic animal keys that have become nostalgic icons to visitors from years past. At Storybook sites around the Zoo, visitors can listen to multilingual recordings of stories and fun facts about the animals. You can purchase your Storybook key at the Admissions Gate or Membership Office. If you have an original key, you can continue to treasure it as a collector's item as it won't work with the new boxes.
