Where are we going today?

Tweetsie Railroad will let your imaginations fun WILD in North Carolina! Wild west that is! 

It's one of the states original family fun theme parks, which lets kids have an amazing time, and parents to rediscover their inner child - all with a fun Wild West theme. Yee haw y'all!

At Tweetsie Railroad, you can spend your fun family day out riding the famous steam engines and enjoying the Wild West Train Adventures. You of course can also spend your day on the other fun attractions at Tweetsie Railroad, which include taking a chair lift up to miners mountain, or enjoying the Country Fair with a whole host of fun rides!

The old fashioned classic of the carousel is ready to take you for a spin, or the ferris wheel is a great way to check out the views all around you! Did we mention there were thrill rides for those brave members of the family? Well, there is!

Those who can handle it can plummet in zero gravity - you've been warned! If you love the zero G element, then check out those rides to make you dizzy for more fun - from the tilt-a-whirl, round up and the sweeping Tornado!

At Tweetsie Railroad there is a really good spread of entertainment for the whole family, and lots of live entertainment too. Watch out for those bandits at the Wild West Adventure show, and that's not all the Western fun, with their Miners Mountain Magic Show and Diamond Lil's review show.

Those with a real animal passion will also find the Deer Park Habitat entertaining with lots of animal related fun from pygmy goats to pot bellied pigs.

There's also Gold Panning and Gem Mining, arcade games, Country Fair skill games and playground on Miners Mountain for the  younger kids.

Keep an eye out too for the seasonal and special event calendar such as Halloween related fun and themed shows such as days out with Thomas The Tank Engine !

We told you there was a TON of family and kids fun - we weren't kidding!

    Our kids LOVE Tweetsie Railroad! If it were not so expensive we would go more often!! The facilities are very clean and obviously well maintained. Our favorite thing to do there is pan for gold. The kids would spend hours panning if we would let them! LOL…it really is a nice place to spend the day with family!

    As someone else said, "Darling!" We loved it. The park was clean, the train actors were great, and all the employees that I talked to, were very friendly! The bathrooms were clean, as well.

    I had gone to Tweetsie, as a young child, so I don't remember much. I had always wanted to go back (I'm 48 now) and I'm so glad we did!

    To me, the entire atmosphere there was just very welcoming and friendly. I feel the price ($39.00) is absolutely in line and within reason. The food was good. A little on the expensive side; but again, Tweetsie is...Read More

    I was a little thrown at first by the cost of the park. However, my kids had a great time. The train ride was fun. Some of the props need to be updated, and we had to assure our 3 year old they were "pretending" cowboys and indians. They have some rides for smaller children, cars to drive around a track, carousel, ferris wheel, tilt a whirl. My children loved deer park and feeding the animals. They also enjoyed the smaller mouse train ride. There were several items that had additional charges including "state fair" types of games, face painting,...Read More

    This is the most darling theme park on the planet. As long as you're not there during the Thomas the Train week you don't have to worry about long lines. It's a tremendous value, a fraction of Disney and so much better because it's not crowded and expensive. The only thing I would say Tweetsie could improve upon is their food. It's okay, not great. Not bad, just alright. All in all, we LOVE Tweetsie.

I rode the Merry-go-round, went in the miscellaneous shops, and went to the pet farm. The pet farm was wonderful! I had so much fun, seeing the animals and feeding them! They are all adorable.

It was a wonderful day and I'd go back again! :-)

We didn't get to see the saloon show and can can dancing because our little ones were worn out. This park did have the nicest workers of any park I've ever been to.
