Welcome to Tweetsie Railroad Get Ready to have some fun!
Looking for a way to get out of Dodge? Tweetsie Railroad is just the place! We’ve been taking families on a Wild West train ride for over 50 years.
Tweetsie Railroad allows children and families to let their imaginations run wild and discover all sorts of fun. Kids can be a cowboy … an Indian … or an engineer. Families love riding on our famous steam engine, Number 12. She’s listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Just looking at her is enough to take you back.
Hop on board Tweetsie’s Wild West Adventure, on a train pulled by one of our historic coal-fired steam locomotives. It’s a trip back in time complete with Cowboys, train robbers and marauding renegades stirring up trouble. You never know what might happen! Ride it as many times as you want!
A Day of Adventure
Don’t go thinking that the only thing to do ‘round here is the train ride.
Stroll down the Western Main Street and visit the hoosegow (that’s a jail for you city-folk) where all the no-good varmints do hard time. Take a spin on the rides in the Country Fair and on Miner’s Mountain. Take aim at the Arcade and Shooting Gallery.
When you get to Miner's Mountain, check out the friendly animals at the Deer Park, stretch your legs on the playground or get your face painted. But it’s not called Miner’s Mountain for nothing, you’ve got to try your hand at gem mining or panning for gold.
“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!”
