Owner description: As North Carolina’s original family theme park, Tweetsie Railroad is a unique attraction that allows children and families to explore their imaginations and a whole lot more. Be a cowboy, cowgirl or an engineer. Shop along Main Street, pan for gold, or visit the animals in the Deer Park. Tweetsie has amusement rides for all ages and live entertainment throughout the park. And, of course, hop aboard our historic train for a fun-filled three-mile Wild West journey through the scenic mountains. Located in Blowing Rock, NC.

I took my grandkids every year until they got older. They loved " The day with Thomas". Great place, I remember going when I was a child. There's alot more things to do there than just the train ride.

We had the best time here at the Tweetsie Railroad with our two 4-year old twin grandsons. It's totally geared to the younger kids with lots to do, great entertainment, pleanty of food and drinks to satisfy everyone. We especially enjoyed the Train Ride and the Animal Petting where you can pet and feed deer, lamas, emus, goats, along with a variety of other animals. All in all a really nice place for families with young children.

Went up to Boone specifically to ride the Ghost Train. Our group stood on line in the cold for nearly 2 hours. At one point the train came back and sat idle for nearly 30 minutes. After watching 4 trains come and go, and still not making it on to the train, we had enough standing in the cold, so we left. It was nearly 11 pm and the boarding area was still packed with people waiting to get on the train. What a waste of our time and money! The park should consider offering tickets with specific ride times to avoid the ridiculous crowds having to wait for the one train that goes around the park. After spending that night in our expensive hotel rooms, we took a very disappointed group of kids back home.

Tweetsie is a wonderful family place for entertainment. It is a great deal of fun for kids and parents alike. My favorite part is the actual train ride. I could ride on it all day long---so much fun!!
