Dust off your ruby slippers – North Carolina’s abandoned Wizard of Oz theme park is opening once again this summer.
For six days only, the famous Land of Oz is swinging open its gates and letting visitors take a journey down the park’s crumbling yellow brick road.
Oz explorers will have the chance to take an immersive tour of the whimsical property led by Dorothy herself.
You’ll pass sites like the Munchkin Village and fantastical sculptures that bring the film to life.
Some guests will even be able to play a role from the movie, such as one of Dorothy’s companions or the wicked witch.
The park first opened in 1970 and reeled in 400,000 visitors in its first year. However, the attraction seemed to be cursed with bad luck.
One of the original founders died of cancer before the park was even open. In 1975, a fire ravaged the park’s Emerald City area and museum, destroying Judy Garland’s original gingham dress from the movie. By 1980, the Land of Oz was closed to the public.
Now, you can once again follow the yellow brick road into the depths of the park and relive magical childhood memories.
The park will be open to visitors on June 12,19, 26 and July 2, 3, 2020.
