The most wonderful time of the year is right around the corner. Tweetsie Railroad has closed its gates for the season. But as a ³thank you² to everyone who visited North Carolina¹s first theme park during the 2013 season, Tweetsie is giving away a pair of 2014 Golden Rail Season passes. Visit Tweetsie on Facebook (facebook.com/Tweetsie) between now and December 18 for details and to enter for your chance to win. And be thinking about your favorite memory, story or photo from the 2013 season!
Season pass holders will enjoy a full season of adventure from Wild West train rides, amusement rides, live entertainment and the Deer Park Zoo, as well as free admission to all special events throughout the season and discounts at other High Country family attractions. Golden Rail Season Passes for next year are also available for purchase at a special rate of $80 for adults and $55 for children ages 3 through 12.
