April 12, 2013. Tweetsie Railroad is calling buckaroos young and old as the park opens for its 2013 season on Friday, April 12. North Carolina’s first theme park, nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains in Blowing Rock, will treat guests to Wild West family adventure this year through Sunday, November 3. Golden Rail Season Passes are now available for purchase at Tweetsie.com.
Visitors enjoy Wild West action, exciting amusement rides, live shows and more all season long. Hop aboard a train pulled by Tweetsie’s historic steam-powered locomotives for an unforgettable threemile Wild West adventure. Explore the streets of Tweetsie Railroad’s very own Western town, complete with cowboys and Indians. Be a part of the show at Diamond Lil’s Can-Can Revue, Hopper and Porter’s Musical Celebration and the Miner’s Mountain Magic Show. Experience the gold rush while panning for gold at Miner’s Mountain, get to know the friendly critters at the Deer Park, and much more.
Tweetsie Railroad will host numerous special events throughout the 2013 season to tickle your fancy. Returning favorites include the July 4th Fireworks Extravaganza and the Ghost Train Halloween Festival.
