June 30, 2014. Tweetsie Railroad, North Carolina’s first theme park, is proud to welcome two legendary cartoon characters: Scooby-Doo and Shaggy to the park for the first time on July 11-13. The beloved mystery-solver and man’s best friend will entertain park guests and take photos daily at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.
Tweetsie will also be hosting a favorite annual event once again this year when K-9s in Flight Frisbee Dogs, a group of incredibly talented rescue dogs, soar into the park on July 19-27. These gravity-defying canines will entertain park guests for nine days with three daily performances at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.
Guests can enjoy these special events in addition to a full day of Wild West family fun at Tweetsie. Hop aboard the train pulled by an historic steam-powered Tweetsie locomotive for an unforgettable three-mile adventure through the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains.
Spend the day exploring the streets of a western town, take a spin on exciting amusement rides, visit the animals at the Deer Park Zoo and be a part of the toe-tappin’ live entertainment and shows and take a scenic chair lift ride to Miner’s Mountain and pan for gold.
