  • Looks like it would be a fun stop, the location is ideal but due to the virus crisis the place is once again closed... Such a shame!  more »
  • Tweetsie reopened just in time for our visit in mid-July and it was a thrill taking the grandkids on the train ride as they marked the 4th generation of our family to visit Tweetsie. Only the train.....  more »

  • Tweetsie Railroad was great. Very nostalgic for me. I had been there when I was young with my parents on more than one occasion. And later on, I took my own kids there. So it was a great experience to be back there. Still a lot to do and great entertainment for the family!!
  • Tweetsie is one of our family's favorite places! Family friendly entertainment for all ages, especially the younger ones. No roller coasters but plenty of carnival games, county fair type rides, go karts, a chair lift, petting zoo, a magic show, song & dance routines and of course, a hilarious wild west show seen from aboard a super cool steam locomotive! We don't care for the Ghost Train but the Christmas Train looks great! Highly recommended!
