For more than 10 years Tweetsie Railroad has transformed the Wild West theme park into an imaginary place called "Letterland". Where plain letter shapes become child-friendly characters that use a unique, phonics-based approach to teaching reading, writing and spelling to 3-8 year olds. Elementary school groups from across the region come to spend the day in "Letterland", meeting all their favorite characters and enjoying the park. All the live entertainment shows have a Letterland theme, even the train ride!
Normal operations during this time of year are Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. However, we are not closed to the public during Letterland. If you have a young child that is familiar with Letterland and are willing to brave the crowd, you are welcome to come, and enjoy this special event.
Please note, park hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., May 9-11 & 16-18.
