Currently closed during the daytime hours. Will be open every Friday and Saturday evening beginning November 24 through December 30, 2017, for Tweetsie Christmas. Then we will re-open for daytime operation April 6, 2018. As North Carolina’s original family theme park, Tweetsie Railroad is a unique attraction that allows children and families to explore their imaginations and a whole lot more. Be a cowboy, cowgirl or an engineer. Shop along Main Street, pan for gold, or visit the animals in the Deer Park. Tweetsie has amusement rides for all ages and live entertainment throughout the park. And, of course, hop aboard our historic train for a fun-filled three-mile Wild West journey through the scenic mountains. Located in Blowing Rock, NC.

We had a good time. There is not much that is open, and we had rode the train and covered the Christmas Town in 2 hours. It was not real expensive, so 4 stars it is.

Great fun, be sure to wear glasses to avoid getting cinders in your eyes. The cars are open sided and not advised to go on rainy days. The only available food are hot dogs, chips, and soda drinks.

This place has been a local tradition since the 1950's and while it's no match for Orlando, it's a great day out with young kids. It offers a real steam engine drawn train, carnival rides, entertainment and food all set amongst the beautiful Appalachian Mountains....More

Yeah but better call them for winter, that area can be weird around winter time. Better to see what they close around the park during winter

The only comment I have about the use of wheelchairs at the Tweetsie Railroad is that most of the attractions are mostly located on the side of a fairly steep hill. The reason I say this is because I saw people having... More

I agree with all the previous answers. I saw other people using a wheelchair when we were there, but they had help accompanying them so I would suggest the same for you.
