Visitors can pretend they have traveled back in time to the days of the old west at Tweetsie Railroad Theme Park in Blowing Rock, North Carolina. Both young and old will enjoy learning about steam locomotives, riding the Wild West Train Adventure, watching shows such as the Saloon Show, riding the Country Fair rides, and visiting the shops and restaurants. Tickets are $32 for adults and $22 for children aged three and up. Children aged two and under are always free. Discount tickets to the park are not always easy to find, but many people have gotten them by doing the following.
Discount Options for Tweetsie Tickets
Consider purchasing a season pass to the park. If you plan to attend more than three times per year, you can save money by purchasing a season pass. A season pass ticket is $80 for an adult and $55 for children aged three and up. A benefit to this is that the pass also gives you discounts at other local attractions as well.
Visit with a group of 20 or more paying visitors and save $6 per adult and $5 per child. Group ticket prices are $26 for adults and $17 for children. Be sure to make advance reservations to receive this discount.
Show your proof of status as a state employee or your AAA membership card to receive a discount (usually $3 to $6) off general admission prices.
Purchase tickets from one of Tweetsie’s corporate partners. These places will either allow patrons to pre-purchase tickets at a discount (approximately $3 to $6 off) or will provide a corporate partner code to use when ordering tickets online. Partners such as Domino’s Pizza, Subway, Wendy’s and Lowes Foods sometimes have coupons for discounts at the gate (offered at various times throughout the season).
For a two-day visit, go late in the afternoon on the first day. Visitors coming in after 3:00 p.m. can come back the next day for free.
