Even in today’s high-tech world, there’s still a place for old-fashioned fun....That place is Tweetsie Railroad.
Tweetsie Railroad is a unique attraction that allows children and families to explore their imaginations and a whole lot more. Be a cowboy, Indian or an engineer. And of course, every guest will want to take a ride behind the historic steam locomotive, Number 12, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Come experience it for yourself. It’s an adventure-filled ride youwon’t want to miss!
Hop on board Tweetsie’s Wild West Adventure, on a train pulled by one of our historic coal-fired steam locomotives. It’s a trip back in time complete with Cowboys, train robbers and marauding renegades stirring up trouble. You never know what might happen! Ride it as many times as you want!
Don’t go thinking that the only thing to do ‘round there is the train ride. Stroll down the Western Main Street and visit the hoosegow (that’s a jail for you city-folk) where all the no-good varmints do hard time. Take a spin on the rides in the Country Fair and on Miner’s Mountain. Take aim at the Arcade and Shooting Gallery.
When you get to Miner's Mountain, check out the friendly animals at the Deer Park, stretch your legs on the playground or get your face painted. But it’s not called Miner’s Mountain for nothing, you’ve got to try your hand at gem mining or panning for gold.
A one-price admission includes a full day of fun at Tweetsie Railroad including the train trip, live entertainment, Country Fair rides, Deer Park and more.
