THE HIGH COUNTRY'S PREMIER FAMILY FUN PARK 

THE HIGH COUNTRY'S NUMBER ONE FOR FAMILY FUN

Tweetsie has been the High Country's premier family fun park for almost 6 decades and features a Western-themed ride on an authentic steam train. In fact, Tweetsie was the Boone Area's first high-tech link to the outside world from the late 1800s to the 1940 Flood. Engine #12 is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Early residents named the historic train "Tweetsie" for its shrill whistle. The train takes its passengers on exciting adventure and follows a 3-mile loop, crosses a trestle, circles a mountain, and encounters robbers and Indians on the way back to a diverse assortment of rides and entertaining options that include great old time live music.
