There is a small snack bar too where one can grab a few bites before heading to the next ride.

In 1915, the city requested a Japanese immigrant and his wife to transform an old rock quarry into a Japanese-styled garden, and a man named Mr. Kimi Eizo Jingu agreed to the task. He started with a rock house, which still stands today and is surrounded by winding pebble walkways, stone bridges, a waterfall and tranquil pools. His work transformed the old rock quarry into a garden filled with lily ponds and lush green vegetation. With the onset of World War II and the growing anti-Japanese sentiment that surrounded it, the city council changed the garden's name to "Chinese Sunken Garden." In 1983, the original name was finally restored.
Constructed in 1870, this post became a permanent home for the US Army. The Quadrangle, with its impressive clock tower, was originally built as a supply depot. In 1886, however, it served as prison grounds for Apache Chief Geronimo and his warriors. Much to the delight of children and adults alike, the facility now houses flocks of deer, rabbits, chickens, geese and ducks, which have occupied the grounds for over 100 years. The animals are tame enough to hand-feed and occasionally pet.
One of the city's largest parks, Brackenridge offers more family fun than one day can accommodate. Start with the musical carousel featuring 60 antique horses. Then try the Skyride, which consists of Swiss manufactured cable cars that lift visitors to enjoy the view of the park as well as the city skyline. If ground transportation is more your speed, opt for a ride on the miniature train that runs through a 3.5-mile (5.6-kilometer) stretch of the park. For water travel, cruise around the upper part of the San Antonio River in paddle boats. Other facilities include a municipal golf course, a driving range, bike trails and picnic areas.
