The Land of Oz was an amusement park located in the resort town of Beech Mountain, North Carolina, USA. It was opened in 1970 by Grover Robbins.
The costumes of the actors were based more on the book descriptions until later on in the park’s history when they were changed to look more like the film. One obvious exception was that the shoes worn by “Dorothy” around the park were red, representing the ruby slippers from the movie, instead of silver as in the book. Visitors could take a walk down the Yellow Brick Road, experience, the tornado which struck Dorothy’s house, and visit with the Scarecrow, Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion and the Wicked Witch of the West. The Yellow Brick Road led to a show at the Emerald City where the characters met with the Wizard.
