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.

Was a great day reliving some of my childhood memories with my 11 and 12 year old boys. They were entertained the entire day. The park was in awesome shape. Clean. Well maintained. Staff friendly. Keep it up Tweetsie.

This was SO much fun! My three boys enjoyed it so much. There is so much to do. We went on a 3 mile train ride, took an old time photo, and went on some rides. We also mined for stones!
