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 an 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.
Tweetsie Railroad has two trains and a Chairlift to Miner's Mountain which features rides such as a Carousel, a Free Fall, a Ferris Wheel, Planes and Helicopters, Round Up, Tilt-A-Whirl, Tornado, Turnpike Cruisers, Boats, F-80 Jet Planes, Mouse Mine Train, Tweetsie Twister and much more!
Tweetsie also hosts great events for kids such as Thomas the Tank Engine and October's Ghost Train.
