Tweetsie Railroad Reopening For 2022 Season

BLOWING ROCK, N.C. — North Carolina’s oldest theme park Tweetsie Railroad will be sounding the train whistles again as they welcome guests back for the 2022 season.

Families will be welcomed back to the Wild West on Saturday, April 9.

“We can’t wait to see our beloved park open again this season,” Cathy Robbins for Tweetsie Railroad said. “Tweetsie’s charm lies in the memories we provide for all generations.”

Guests are invited to visit the railroad-themed park on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. until May 28, when the summer schedule begins.

During the summer schedule, the park is open five days a week –Thursdays through Mondays – until weekend-only hours resume on August 14.

The park hours may vary during events. The first special event of the season is the Easter Bunny’s visit to the park on April 16-17.

Other family-friendly events planned for 2022 season at the park include:

  • Day Out With Thomas™ from June 10-13 and 16-19
  • July 4th Fireworks Extravaganza on July 4
  • K-9s In Flight Frisbee Dogs on July 23-25 and 28-31
  • Riders In The Sky on August 13-14
  • Railroad Heritage Weekend on August 27-28
  • Ghost Train ® on Friday and Saturday evenings, September 23 – October 29
  • Tweetsie Christmas ® on select evenings, November 25 – December 30

Dates are subject to change.

“There is no tradition like a Tweetsie tradition, and we hope all our regular visitors – and lots of new ones – will make plans to make several trips to the park this year,” Robbins added. “Season passes are the best deal if you plan to make multiple trips to the park.”

Single day tickets are $58 for adults and $39 for children and Golden Rail Season Pass tickets are $134 for adults and $90 for children.

Children age two and under are free.

The park has added a new feature this year for Golden Rail Season Pass holders. They can now also get a Bring-a-Friend-Free ticket to use in April or May.

Season pass holders from 2021 will receive a discount if they renew again in 2022.
