The land according to Watauga County tax records is owned by private persons and private entities. Watauga County has no ownership in any of the land Tweetie occupies/Leases.

The train doesn't have a UL Approved Label anywhere and should be destroyed

I was looking at the discount ticket prices for parks on the SECU website a few days ago. I noticed the Carowinds and Tweetsie tickets were the exact same price. I just can't see Tweetsie being just as expensive, but kudos to them if they get it.

Carowinds doesn't have an antique steam train as its main attraction to up keep. Parts for the steam engine are no longer made and must be repaired in their Loco shop.

The land is now owned by Watauga county and leased for a very small amount by tweetsie for I believe 7 years then they are to buy it from Watauga. The land that the train tracks are on is the land Decsurvey is talking about

"Grayson, if you lost so much focus how did you still manage to write an essay response. Perhaps you should find something better to do with your time and yourself."


Your attempt to chastise me with a quip probably would have been a great deal more successful if it made sense. I indicated that I lost focus at the point where the individual couldn't name the character that the child had interest in. That was also what I focused on in my "essay."

As for my essay management, my essay game is pretty strong, so I didn't really have to spend a great deal of time on that particular "essay." Even if I did though, my time is my own and I'll probably just continue spending it however I choose. The whole, "I'm going to try to insult you for typing **** out for other people to read" insult always seems to be a pretty silly insult to employ in a forum designed to allow people to type **** out for other people to read. It's kinda' like insulting a baseball player for playing baseball too much during a baseball game. But still, thank you for your focus.

Tweetsie is paying an absorbent amount to lease the land. Several years ago Tweetsie was going to have to move as land owners wanted to sell the land to developers.

Tweetsie's lease is up again in a couple of years. This time I do not think thenland owners will extend the lease in order to sell the land in the high single millions.

Tweetsie has been looking to relocate because of the lease. They were looking at several land aqusitions around NW NC in Caldwell, Wilkes, Ashe, and Watauga.

Enjoy it while it is still there as it may be gone in coming years as lease rates increase and entrance fees go up beyond reason forcing it to close.

Took my child a month ago and it was a great time. Potentially there were just some bad apples that you met. However it may not be for everyone. Grayson, if you lost so much focus how did you still manage to write an essay response. Perhaps you should find something better to do with your time and yourself. 😉

Talk to the people who are visiting , many are there for the first time and seem to be enjoying it as much as the kids. Think about what it costs to go to any entertainment venue .

If I remember correctly, Wilkes was hooping Tweetsie would move to here, if they decided to leave their present location.

I've not been in many, many years, but I imagine it is now more for parents trying to show their kids what they did as a child.

Kids love Tweetsie , it was a genius idea ! I can't think of any place that doesn't have detractors , some with good reason perhaps. Take it to the top and let them know what's going on , any place can hire the wrong person sometimes.

To answer the original question, it's more expensive because it is kid based! Most parents will gladly deny an indulgence for themselves and overspend for an experience for their child, just to see them smile

And Grayson, of course I know all the characters names and theme songs of my kid's pastimes. I wish I didn't!
