Fodor's Review

A Wild West theme park built into the side of a mountain between Boone and Blowing Rock, Tweetsie Railroad is centered on coal-powered steam locomotives beset by robbers. A petting zoo, carnival amusements, gem panning, shows, food and concessions are also here. Several of the attractions are at the top of the mountain and can be reached from the parking lot on foot, by bus or by ski lift.
