We had a large family group of very diverse ages from 2-67 and we all had a great time! Our greatest recommendation is that they need to do a better job advertising the extensive number of rides and activities for kids of all ages. Great service and reasonable prices.

Visited Tweetsie with three grandsons, ages 7 and 9. The park was clean and offered something for everyone. Scarey rides for bigger kids and an awesome petting zoo that we almost missed. There were plenty of people there but there were no lines for rides. The park attendants were all friendly and helpful. The shows were short and just average.... More

We took our 4 yr old and 9 yr old sons. It was perfect for that age group. They could both ride all the rides. The park was not too big and we were able to see everything in about 4 hours.

It's a tourist attraction so you know it's not going to be cheap but as a treat it's worth it. It's a great mountain memory! A tip to get your money's worth out of the cost is to go on one of the "cool summer nights" promotion (they're open till 9 then) & get there after 3pm. You get to... More

The other rides were ok again my son LOVED the cars you can drive. They also have a petting zoo... More

We took our 2 grandsons, ages 3 & 5, for a day with Thomas the Train; it proved fun for all. Although the admission price seemed high, once you see all you get for the money, it proved a good value. In addition to the train ride, there are lots of rides throughout the park that are free. The boys... More

My family has been coming to Tweetsie with 3 generations of family. Wonderful place to visit and spend the day. Train is top notch and very realistic. Cantina is a must to stop by and have a bit e of food. Girls are not bad either. Petting zoo is great for little ones and mouse train adorable.

My 2 year old son loved spending the day with Thomas the Train! The ride with Thomas was nice as well as the Mouse Mine ride. The train whistle scared my son, but he was still fascinated by the big train and the real Thomas! He waved at Thomas and talked to him every time we saw him. He got... More
