Tweetsie Railroad transforms from the Wild West into a haunted park with Halloween thrills and chills for all ages. The highlight of each evening is a nighttime ride on the Ghost Train, other spooky attractions include the Haunted House and the Freaky Forest. Younger ghouls will enjoy dressing up in their Halloween costume, trick-or-treating on Main Street, watching the Black Light Puppet Show and taking in the amusement rides in the Creepy Carnival.
Tickets are for a specific date and train ride time. A limited number of guests are admitted nightly; advance tickets are strongly recommended. Adults: $44, Children (age 3-12): $38, Children 2 and under: Free
Walk through the light tunnel to the Boneyard, where you can spin out of control in the Black Hole, walk into another dimension in the Warp Tunnel, and children can bounce the night away in the bounce house.

This depends on the child. Some children are scared just because of the darkness. There are loud explosions on the Ghost Train ride. We don’t recommend the Haunted House, the Freaky Forest, or the Ghost Train for children under age 8.
The first train leaves about 8:00 p.m. and then every 30 minutes throughout the evening. On Saturdays in late October, the first train leaves at 7:30 p.m. The last scheduled train departs at 10:00 p.m.
