Tweetsie Tip

Orientation for March 28, 2020, has been canceled.

Tweetsie Railroad is postponing its park opening date to adhere to the current recommendations from the CDC and the State of North Carolina. We will continue to monitor the situation and guidance from public health professionals to determine when the park will open.

Please be assured that even though we don’t have a definite opening date, we intend to open for the 2020 season. Updates will be sent to you via email, and posted here on our website, Facebook, Twitter, and on the park’s voicemail.

Seasonal staff who have been hired or are in the process of completing paperwork will be contacted closer to the rescheduled opening day to finish paperwork and assign a date for orientation. If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to our Human Resource Department, Donna Griffin or Julie Powell, at [email protected] or 800-526-5740, extension 100.

Thank you for your patience.
