The only Wild West themed amusement park in the High Country, Tweetsie Railroad North Carolina has been entertaining kids of all ages and sizes since 1957. Bring along your loved ones with you and plan to take plenty of pictures. You do not want to miss the wild ride along a gorgeous spot in the Blue Ridge Mountains on the historic, No. 12 locomotive steam engine. “No. 12” is the name given to the only surviving narrow gauge engine that traveled along the Eastern Tennessee and Western North Carolina Railroad (ET&WNC). The engine is the prominent feature of the park, and Ridin’ the Tweetsie Railroad is a highlight of any trip to the park. Also, it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places; however, the engine is the not the only thing worth checking out at this special spot.
Children and adults both love exploring the park which features amusement rides such as the Tweetsie Twister ride, Carousel, Round Up, Drop Tower, Ferris Wheel, Tilt-A-whirl, and chairlift. There are other smaller rides for little ones as well. In addition to the rides, there are tons of great shows daily including the dinner theatre show which features the Tweetsie Railroad can-can girls. In addition to Tweetsie Railroad, the Village of Blowing Rock is home to numerous Blowing Rock Attractions and other noted Western NC Tourist Attractions.
