  1. Love Tweetsie…favorite memory, the chair lift to the top in the fall. Beauiful! The kids would probably say the fake horses, cloggers, candy and shaved ice, rides, gem mining, petting zoo…oh, you get the point. They like it all!

  3. Favorite memory from earlier this year: My five year old sitting by the window on the train, surely out of the way of any stray Indians. However, they jumped right through his window to steal the gold. He freaked out and vowed, “I will NEVER ride that train again.” It seems like I said the same thing when I was a little girl. It gets less scary, right?

  8. We love Tweetsie. We went this year for the first time in years. My daughter absolutely loves it. I guess my favorite memory would be just getting to spend a carefree day with my daughter and husband and seeing her get so excited running from ride to ride!!

  17. My uncle drove the mouse train when I was little and sometimes on his day off, he would take us for the day. I can’t wait to have the opportunity to take my daughter.

  27. I still can’t believe that I haven’t made it to Tweetsie with my little boy! Maybe winning tix would get us moving that way! I used to love to pose for pictures on the horses and in the jail.

  29. My daughter and her family (4 total) would love to go to Tweetsie this weekend. My grandson who is four, enjoys the rides, especially the train with the loud whistle, and of course the robbery and shoot-out. My granddaughter, who is 10, also is a fan of Tweetsie RR. She enjoys the rides as well, and loves to watch the shows.

  30. This year, my son turned 4, and he became a cowboy. I’m not sure how this metamorphosis occurred, I only know that he wants to wear his cowboy boots, and vest everywhere he goes. Last time we were at Tweetsie, which I guess would have been last fall, he was a little frightened by the big train, the loud whistle, and the cowboys. He has recently informed me that he no longer fears these things, and wants to have the chance to prove that to me (of course while wearing his entire cowboy ensemble). I would love to give him that opportunity. I’m a single mother of two kids, and can’t often afford extravagant trips and events for my kids… this would allow all of us to spend a fun family day together, without worrying about the expense.
