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.

The prices are very high for what you get. 2 adults $90 for the equivalent of $20 worth of fair rides. The train ride is cute. It would be more fun for kids about 3-8 years old. You can do everything in 2 1/2 hours....More

Went here when i was 10 and it was amazing, went again when i was 20 and it was cool. Went at 45 and not so much. If your under 20 its great, over 20 and it's lots of walking for little reward.

Yes, the cost to get in only covers entry into the park, but all rides are covered once you are inside. I would suggest bringing lunch or snacks as the price of food and snacks is like most amusement parks, pricey and not... More

I;ve never been to Tweetsie on the 4th of July but if you don't like to wait it would be best to go on another day.
