We visited Tweetsie Railroad to ride the Ghost Train on 10/18/14. We have a 13 and 9 year old. We got to the gates before they opened at 7:30 and waited to go in. Upon going into the park, we went left and visited the Haunted Forest, 3D Maze, etc. on that side first as the park suggested on Facebook.... More

The weather could have been better but we still had a great visit. We had 4 children - 14, 9, 2 & 2 - they all had a good time. We rode the "big train" twice. It is nice that they change up the show every few rides. We love the chairlift to the top. The petting zoo was wonderful... More

My boys (6 & 9) had a blast here! We got there right at opening so no lines and up front parking. We were able to do almost everything there in about 4 hours. Only complaint, it's a little pricey for what's there.

I recently took my family of Five to Tweetsie and I must say what a delight. Highly recommend the cheesy mice ride and I must say there was this Halloween puppet show which was a delightful watch and my family's favorite part. Not too badly priced, bar the drinks but that's expected. Beat the system and bring your own. All... More

This weekend was our second trip to Tweetsie, as we had visited last year as well. My children (5 and 7) loved it! The park is small enough to cover in 3-4 hours, which is perfect for their attention span. They loved feeding the deer and goats, riding the rides, and riding the train. The staff was very friendly!

Wow... What fun we had with the family and friends. I loved the ghost train ride and seeing the attractions. Most things things were mediocre and Haunted Forest pretty lame and not much scary stuff so ok for young kids. We even rode a few rides. Reminded me of young days. A bit pricey

My wife has talked abut this place for two years. My daughter just turned 4 and we decided to take a weekend in the mountains and visit Tweetsie. Got into town on Friday afternoon. We has heard if you get there after three then you can pay to get in and come back the following day for no extra charge.... More
