When you're looking for fun things to do in North Carolina with kids, there's plenty of live entertainment at Tweetsie Railroad.
Don't miss a single show!
Get your ticket to adventure and get on board our historic narrow-gauge, coal-fired steam locomotives. Your family will love the action-packed train ride pulled by one of our engines, No. 12 or No. 190. Take a scenic three-mile train ride through the NC mountains—and remember to keep an eye out for bandits!
Experience high kicks—and hijinks—as Diamond Lil presents the renowned Tweetsie Railroad Can-Can Dancers. Between shows, have a snack and enjoy classic westerns on the big screen.
Catch a high-energy musical variety show featuring a mix of traditional and contemporary styles of this uniquely Appalachian dance.
Laugh along with Hopper the Rabbit, a hare-brained train engineer, and Porter the Turtle, the conductor who tries to keep him on track, in a live musical that kids and parents will love!
A great magician never reveals his tricks, and ours won’t either. See if you can figure them out as we astound even the most skeptical.
Just as the cowboys ride off into the sunset at the end of the movie, our entertainers mosey into the Tweetsie Palace for one last show at the end of the day. Performers from every show at Tweetsie Railroad are featured together on one stage.
