If you are looking for a fast-passed, high thrill ride type of park then this place may not be for you. However, if you are looking to take a trip back to a more simple time - then this is the place to visit! We enjoy Tweetsie and had season passes for a while. It is quaint with simple fun.... More

Cute park, especially if you like trains, but there isn't enough other things to do, and after visiting once, they have never added anything to make me want to go back again. The rule of attractions is to grow or you die... and Tweetsie has gone years without adding anything new to the park which is a shame. The park... More

FUN for the whole family! I came here as a child, brought my children, and now I bring my grandchildren! I love this place, there is something for everyone...petting zoo, rides for all ages, game arcade, can-can girls, gunslingers, chairlift, shopping, food, special traveling exhibits and of course....Tweetsie! The train ride is great and stops for different "shows" Indian attacks,... More

The Tweetsie Railroad is a great place to spend the day and relive the old west. The rides, arcade, train show and even the quaint shops detail the days of the early west. It allows families to pan for gold and gems like the prospectors, face native attacks at outpost forts, and even learn history along the way. The park... More

Tweetsie Railroad has been a favorite place to visit since my first time there in 1965 but this year's visit was only my second in autumn. We had great time as the changing leaves gave everything a different look and the crisp temperatures invigorated us. Since Tweetsie is only open on weekends in summer, the park was pretty busy but...
