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 went for my daughter's 4th birthday and we had so much fun! We went on a great day because the weather was great and it wasn't too busy. She's still talking about how much fun she had and we'll most definitely be back

Tweetsie is iconic. Have visited many times over the years with first my children and then my grand kids. The train ride is fun, but the acting is horrific (even for a 6 year old). The best rides for the kids are at the top...More

Not sure but I think it is $3.00 off adult tickets. I got a $4.00 discount from the Super 8 hotel we were staying at.
