Full of family-friendly rides and Wild West-themed activities, Tweetsie Railroad also proudly runs the last narrow-gauge steam locomotive in the area.

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.
