As North Carolina’s original family theme park, Tweetsie Railroad is a unique attraction that allows children and families to explore their imaginations and a whole lot more. Be a cowboy, cowgirl or an engineer. Shop along Main Street, pan for gold, or visit the animals in the Deer Park. Tweetsie has amusement rides for all ages and live entertainment throughout the park. And, of course, hop aboard our historic train for a fun-filled three-mile Wild West journey through the scenic mountains. Located in Blowing Rock, NC.

This is a great summer vacation destination. You can ride a real steam powered train; complete with --well I don't want to spoil the fun. Nice saloon type restaurant to eat, see a show and relax.

We have 4 kids under 11 and there's something for everyone to do here. It is slightly over priced, but a lot of fun.

We went for my daughter's 4th birthday and we had so much fun! We went on a great day because the weather was great and it wasn't too busy. She's still talking about how much fun she had and we'll most definitely be back

I agree with all the previous answers. I saw other people using a wheelchair when we were there, but they had help accompanying them so I would suggest the same for you.
