Tweetsie Railroad is a great attraction for train enthusiasts, history buffs, families and especially kids. I have been going back for 50 years and it never gets old.

I feel like a kid going every time I visit here. It's small and cute and there are so many adorable little kids running around in sweet cowboy get-up! It's the cutest thing. I would honestly spend the whole time on the train if I could. The skits they do are hilarious!

We spent one of the nicest days of our vacation at the Tweetsie park. We didn't know if would be a park and not just a train ride and we felt like the entrance fee was worth it. The train ride was a little shorter than we expected but we went back and did it again. We liked the ski... More

As our son said, "Better than Disneyworld!" We had a thrilling two day visit. Rode the train at least four times. Well worth the trip!

Go at 3 pm ( closes at 6) & the next day come back free...great for younger children-- train ride, shows, carnival type rides & a wonderful petting farm. Not inexpensive but good value, especially over 2 days...bring a picnic lunch & avoid amusement... More

We took our family of 5, including our 3 sons who are 6, 4 and 2 to Tweetsie's Railroad on a weekend getaway. The train was great, the rides were perfect for our small children. We are new to the area so we did not have any expectations, but we were pleasantly surprised by what we found. The thing that... More

My family and I had a great time at tweetsie. The ride operators took the time to make sure we were all safe before beginning the ride. The staff was very welcoming. However we were in the Cantina and we had a worker who had a hickie on her neck! It was huge and very unprofessional. My young child noticed... More
