For the explorer at heart, bring a friend and join us for a unique, behind-the-scenes tour of un-restored areas of the Battleship.
From July 23-31, 2016, the K-9s In Flight Frisbee® Dogs will showcase their skills at 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m., with special Saturday performances at 7:00 p.m. as part of Cool Summer Nights. The dynamic dogs put on acrobatic freestyle routines that have wowed viewers nationwide on television and in special performances. Shows are first-come, first-seated and are included with regular park admission.
All of the dynamic dogs that perform as part of the K-9s In Flight Frisbee® Dogs are rescued or adopted, and the show helps promote and emphasize the importance of pet adoption. These homeless to high-flying dogs are eager to please and will surely thrill your whole family with their amazing feats. Some dogs are expert Frisbee snatchers, some are agility marvels, some are excellent divers and swimmers, but all the four-legged performers are adorable and fun to watch. As both adopter and trainer, John Misita has been producing the K-9s In Flight showcase for over 15 years and has been featured on The Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, ESPN, HBO and more.
North Carolina's first theme park offers special events such as K9s In Flight, in addition to all of its other fun. Visitors can enjoy the centerpiece of the park – an exciting Wild West ride in a train car pulled by one of Tweetsie Railroad's historic steam locomotives – along with amusement rides, live shows, arcade games and more. The whole family will have a blast at Miner's Mountain, where you can try to strike it rich while panning for gold or mining for gems, or visit the 90 animal residents at the Deer Park Zoo.
