Tweetsie is a little pricey for what you can do there. There aren't many rides/attraction to be priced as high as it is. Also the drinks and food are really expensive. One drink from a vending machine was $4. Although if you live in NC...More

It has been many years since I visited this park. The rides and train are all about the same but the staff and the theme park are nothing like I remember. Staff was friendly and helpful. People picking up trash, landscaping was upgraded, no weeds...More

My children are 3 and 9. They have been to Tweetsie at least twice. It is a little pricey to go there, but that should motivate you to spend time doing each activity to get the most of your money. I like Tweetsie because it's...More

I was disappointed, the train ride was okay, but the skits are boring. The shows were nice, especially the cloggers, and the magic show.

I still remember a visit to Tweetsie 55-60 years ago as a child and 30+ years ago with my children and now I have been with my grandchildren. Surprisingly, the train ride itself remains much unchanged...even perhaps politically incorrect in this day. As a child,...More

Super day with grandkids. Older kids would find it quite "cheesie" but our 4 and 7 year old grands loved every minute.

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.
