John Carter during his days as the Tweetsie Marshal (far right)
Earlier this month, we were honored to have WBTV’s own John Carter and Christine Nelson visit the park for a Wild West adventure. John Carter, who worked at Tweetsie Railroad as the Marshal during his college years, even relived his cowboy days at Tweetsie Railroad as part of a feature for WBTV’s popular Carolina Camera program. The episode aired this week, and we couldn’t be happier to be recognized as a top family destination. In fact, this year marks 55 years of classic family fun at Tweetsie!
The show highlighted Tweetsie Railroad’s storied history as well as the thrilling, scenic three-mile Wild West ride aboard our historic steam locomotives. Tweetsie’s Main Street, Deer Park Zoo, Country Fair, Miner’s Mountain, and live shows and performances at the Tweetsie Palace Saloon were also featured. In case you missed it (or want to see it again!), click here to watch the episode of Carolina Camera for an unforgettable glimpse into Tweetsie Railroad.
Come visit us for a day at the park or for one of our upcoming special events including the July 4th Fireworks Extravaganza (July 4 is our birthday too!), the always entertaining K-9s in Flight Frisbee® Dogs and the annual Tweetsie Railroad Ghost Train® Halloween Festival, just to name a few.

“Your park is so clean and everyone is so friendly. It's a real relief from the real world we live in daily. My son dresses up for the occasion and loves the cowboys. I don't know anywhere else you could park a stroller full of goods and go ride a train and it all be there when you return. Thanks again for all you do. It's worth the two hour ride to see his face!”
