Full of family-friendly rides and Wild West-themed activities, Tweetsie Railroad also proudly runs the last narrow-gauge steam locomotive in the area. Hop aboard one of the park's two coal-fired trains and ride along the 4.8 km (3 mi) track through the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains. You can enjoy many classic amusement park rides at the theme park as well, including a tilt-a-whirl, carousel, Ferris wheel, flying jets, and more. Explore Main Street, ride the chairlift up to Miner's Mountain to pan for gold, or simply relax and take in the vibe of the American West. Little ones will enjoy playing cowboys and cowgirls in a classic western setting. Be sure to check the park's website for information on special events, offers, and activities. A visit to Tweetsie Railroad represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Blowing Rock sightseeing planner to plot your vacation.
Tweetsie Railroad reviews
This is probably our 5th or 6th visit to Tweetsie but our first since covid. There are no social distancing measures in place anywhere in the park (whether inside or outside) and no mask enforcement..... more »
We visited Tweestie Christmas and my kids loved it. It had just snowed a few nights before, and it was really magical to see the snow everywhere during the train ride. The train ride was relaxing... 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!
