We took our children to Tweetsie for the first time in October because my husband had fond memories visiting as a child himself. Both of my children had fun. They not only enjoyed the rides, but also the shows. The train is a ride and show in one! My daughter was chosen to go onstage at the Magic Show and... More

Tweetsie is fun for people of all ages. They have great rides and fun things for children, deep rich history and culture for adults, and all kinds of theme days throughout the year. Great way to spend a day in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

We took the grandkids - no one enjoyed it very much. It's expensive, not well-staged, and rather boring.

We went to Tweetsie for the Ghost Train experience and it was awesome. The family had been there many times during normal hours, but the ghost train was well done. They had trick or treat locations set up through out the park, had some rides open, and lots of haunted areas. The train ride itself was well done and a... More

Simple amusement park centered around a antique train. Typical set up with rides like a country fair. The new drop ride area is a nice addition and updates the park some. Visit their fudge shop and enjoy freshly made sweet treats galore or visit during the Ghost Train for real hot chocolate. Christina made my daughters day with an amazing... More

We took our 6 year old grandson and his parents. We all had a blast. He has a disability and uses crutches or a wheelchair to get around, but we found no obstacles. He was able to ride the rides, and we all especially enjoyed the zoo area where we could feed the animals.

Took the grandkids there last summer. Did most everything. The train ride was their favorite by far. Great place to take kids.

We drove the blue ridge parkway end to end in May 2016 and we decided to have a 2 day break in Blowing rock to give our 8 year old boy a break from all the driving. Tweetsie is great for younger children, the train ride with the hold ups and the gunfights is great, the girls in the saloon... More
