Tweetsie Railroad is closed due to state restrictions.
Tweetsie Railroad is closed in accordance with the State of North Carolina Executive Order No. 163. Governor Cooper has announced that the state will move into Phase 2.5 on Friday, September 4, 2020. Under this order amusement parks will remain closed. We are still evaluating the possibility of hosting Tweetsie Christmas.
Tweetsie Railroad has received notification from the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services that we are not permitted to run the train. Thus, we have no choice but to close the park and cancel upcoming special events, including K-9s in Flight, Railroad Heritage Weekend, and Ghost Train. When parks like ours are cleared to open in North Carolina, we will reevaluate the possibility of welcoming guests back to Tweetsie Railroad and hosting Tweetsie Christmas.
The train will run again at Tweetsie Railroad!
Beginning Friday, July 17, Tweetsie Railroad will open with limited weekend operations, Friday – Sunday, 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. Guests will be able to enjoy Main Street, Junction stores, and the Wild West Train ride aboard the park’s historic steam engine.
During this phase of operation, the park will be limiting capacity. Therefore, all Guests need to pre-purchase tickets for a specific date and train ride time.
Tickets have been reduced to$10 for an Adult and $7 for a Child (age 3-12). Children 2 and under will remain free.
