Tweetsie Visit Spring #Giveaway

Happy amusement park season!! If you’re following me on Facebook, Instagram, and/or Twitter you know that my family just got back from an exciting trip to Disneyland with Disney Social Media Moms Celebration and had a blast.

The B family is no stranger to visiting theme parks and amusement parks, we’ve been all over the country between myself and the girls and of course DaddyB aka CoasterCritic and have our clear favorite and other parks that don’t necessarily live up to the hype.

All four of us were able to visit Tweetsie Railroad in North Carolina last year and really enjoyed our visit. I love how family-oriented and wholesome this park is and even that it’s nestled in the mountains. If you want to read about our previous visit head here: Family Getaway: Tweetsie Railroad Review.

We are excited about another visit this Spring/Summer and know the girls will enjoy it even more this year since Lil C is bigger.

  • I LOVE Tweetsie. I use to go as a child a lot. The train ride has always been my favorite, even if my Godfather offered me up (at age 6) to the Indians and scared me emotionally for years. lol

    • Kate, I’ll let this slide this time because you’re new to the area 😉 Seriously though I think all of your kiddos would probably love it.

      • 🙂 You should have heard my kids just now, screaming at the computer when I showed them the Tweetsie website. They asked if I would check them out of school to go tomorrow, ha ha. NOT gonna happen, but we are very excited to check it out. Thanks again!

  • I was traumatized there in the 80s when I was 5 yrs old! Do they still have the show on the train where the Indians were scalped by the cowboys (I imagine not)? Well the “bad guy” cowboy came on the train and picked me up and started walking away with me. I was convinced he was taking me out to be scalped like those poor Indians. My older sister hid under the seat so she got passed by. But not me….I was terrified. I remember it so well! I cried and cried. I do want to take my son there though. I have a few good memories too

  • My kids love to visit here – would make a great birthday surprise in May for my soon to be 4 year old son!

  • I’ve never been before and this is the first I’ve heard of it. I would love to take my grandsons! I think they would love the petting zoo.

  • Oh my goodness. It’s been 20 years since I last went to Tweetsie – soooo many fun memories! I’d have to say feeding the animals was one of my favorites! I’d love to be able to take the girls again!!

  • My son is obsessed with trains and his father used to come to Tweetsie when he was young. I’d love to go as a family!

  • My son is absolutely obsessed with trains AND Thomas the train, so we really want to take him to Tweetsie. We’ve heard it is a lot of fun for kiddos and parents 😉

  • My 3 boys love tweetsie!! My husband and I really enjoy it as well. Great place to spend the day with family. 🙂

  • My folks took me to TweetsieRR at 6 months old & had a pic made of me, on a horse,& Fred Kirby holding me up on it. Ihave the best childhood memories of meeting Fred Kirby at TweetsieRR later at age 12. Love it!
