Failed "Wizard of Oz" Theme Park to Reopen this Summer
on 23 April 2018
Once desolate (but never truly abandoned), North Carolina's Land of Oz theme park will reopen for six days this June (every Friday and the last Saturday). A wonderland built around The Wizard of Oz's beloved world, yellow brick road included, the park debuted in 1970 and closed one decade later. In the '90s, it would open its doors again—for only one day a year. Money raised during those openings went toward its restoration. Plenty of eerie imagery exists but nothing will be as telling as a tour itself. Read more at Travel + Leisure.
