We took our young grandson. The park is directed more at younger kids - teenagers would be bored. We particularly liked that in addition to the rides there were animals to feed. Plenty of places to eat. All the employees we encountered were friendly. We'll keep going back until he gets too old.

I had visited more than once as a child, and had fond memories. Went back last year with my own children and their cousins and everyone had a delightful day. Well worth the price, as the attractions have a unique flavor all their own. Don't miss it!

The rides were wonderful for younger kids. The train ride was fun, the shows were very good, not too long to bore the kids but long enough to enjoy. We even went when it was raining and that didn't stop anything. It was very very fun for kids from about 3-9.

Took our 3 grandchildren 6,5,and 1. A great day for our granddaughters. No lines. They loved every show. Even the petting zoo was a big hit. A wonderful day for grandparents and grandchildren. Not overwhelming like big theme parks.

Great visit and plenty of things to do for the entire family. The railroad is a classic, two old turn of the century steam engines which are beautiful and don't see everyday. Kids loved the rides and the place was clean and well maintained. Worth the trip!

Okay, so your grandkids are say 3 to 6 or so--take them to young kid paradise! Tweetsie is made for the young set! My grandsons went bonkers--the park seems to identify with their age group. They ride the boats, the cars, the chairlift, the mouse train and finally Tweetsie! They even have a animal section where you can actually feed... More

My parents and I came today and even though we are all 24 and older we really enjoyed it. Especially the petting zoo. If you have children this place is a must go. The shows are all very good, and humorous. They have fair rides, plus 2 trains both of which are awesome. All of the staff is super friendly... More

This old theme park is still going strong. I remember coming here with my great grandmother years before. The place still looks fabulous. Not a drop of trash on the grounds. Everything is well taken care of. Staff are careful and friendly. I watched the staff check my child's seatbelt three times before the ride started. The old west theme... More

My kids had such a great time! This is our second year coming and we loved it just as much as the first time. Prices are reasonable and there is something for everyone.
