Tweetsie is an amazing place filled with stories of the past and that area of Boone & Blowing Rock, and the train itself is fantastic. If you're visiting the High Country you do not want to miss this attraction. REALLY COOL experience!!

While we were nearby, we happened upon the Tweetsie Railroad. Lovely light displays, vendors and activities for people of all ages. Had 9:30 tickets, but were able to hop on the 8:00, short distance train ride with music and lights.

My two year old loves this place. I dont think a whole lot has changed in the 30 plus years since I was a child. We all enjoyed our day here.

This is a good place to take your child for their first scare. I might advise if you have kids that don't scare easily they might get bored. It was cute and contained with county Fair rides being open and the haunted house was okay....More
